10 questions for Andreia and Alice Contreiras

Double the beauty and personality, Andreia and Alice Contreiras are twin models that are on the same high speed road to success in the industry. Andrea who is 3 minutes older than her sister started her career first in Portugal, where they were born and raised. She entered the Elite Model Look Contest in 2003 and won a contract with Elite Model Management. In that same year, Alice attended a contest for Pantene and won a contract with Central models. Soon after, Andrea signed with the label as well. The Twins moved to New York about 4 weeks ago and are signed with Q models.
