It’s Sara Sampaio’s birthday today, and many of her friends are sharing throwback photos of her in celebration. This includes a post by noted photographer Russell James, who took the time to write a sweet comment about the model’s go-getter attitude. He paired this up with a photo of her that he took previously, which featured Sara going fully nude. He shared two versions of the photo: one in color and one in black and white.
The image showed Sampaio standing with her left shoulder facing the camera, as she popped her right foot in front. She covered up her chest with her arms, as she placed her hands near her shoulders. Sara looked over at the camera with her lips slightly parted, and exuded a sultry vibe. Her hair was worn down in defined waves, with a heavy right part. The makeup she wore included dark mascara and light pink lipstick.
Since it was posted, the photo has received over 6,100 likes, with many fans stopping by to leave a comment. That also included comments from fellow models, like Georgia Fowler, who is also a Victoria’s Secret model.
“Stunning and too right,” noted Georgia, as she agreed with James’ captions.
“You’re a legend,” declared a follower, while someone else added, “I love your work and of course all of the VS models!”

If you want to risk your life, try telling this person what they can or cannot do. Lots of love and hope you have a happy birthday @sarasampaio - but only if you want to, because I don’t want to risk my life by ‘telling’ you to, so if you don’t want have a happy birthday, I will leave that entirely up to you. #vsfs
