Michael Bubl's model wife Luisana Lopilato unveils new spring collection for Ultimo
She had never modelled lingerie before.
But 24-year-old Luisana Lopilato is faring well as the face of Ultimo.
Since being signed with the underwear label six months ago, the actress and wife of Michael Bubl has starred in numerous campaigns and has just unveiled a new collection in time for spring.

Featuring delicate ivory detailing and lace trimming the new range starts from 28.
And with warmer temperatures on the way, the range includes a strapless bra that can be worn with strapless dresses or tops.
Commenting on the Black Widow design Buenos Aires-born Lusiana said: ‘Finally, a strapless bra which looks amazing!'
Ultimo founder and CEO Michelle Mone says she chose Luisana personally after seeing pictures of the actress with husband Michael Bubl.
Michelle said: 'Luisana is one of our most exciting international signings yet and I’m confident she’ll bring a new sense of fun and glamour to the brand as our incredible face and body.'
'It took me a long time to get her but I refused to give up until I got her. Luisana’s jaw-dropping beauty and charisma are a perfect fit for Ultimo and we can’t wait to unveil our new designs.'

While she was previously relatively unknown in Britain, Luisana remains a big name worldwide.
Having shot to teenage stardom on a Latin American Glee-style TV series Chiquititas, she went on to become an award-winning actress and recording artist in her homeland, and has been voted on to Spanish FHM’s 100 Sexiest list for the past three years in a row.
As Ultimo ambassador, she follows in the footsteps of Kelly Brook, Mel B, Sarah Harding, Helena Christensen and Brazilian
supermodel Raica Oliveira.
She signed up for the role last October for a two-year stint.
Entrepreneur Mone, who was awarded an OBE in 2010 for her services to business, added:
'Signing Michael Buble’s wife Luisana
is one of our biggest international stars and the response we have had
has been phenomenal.
'It took me a long time to get her but I refused to give up.'
