Prior to becoming a model, Ribeiro was in training to become a nurse. A year after giving birth to her son Alexandre, she gave in to a friend's advice and started working as a model in her native Brazil. In 2009, she walked the major international catwalks for such designers as Shiatzy Chen, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, DKNY, Dior, Roberto Cavalli, Blumarine, Moschino, Balmain, Jean Paul Gaultier, Alexandre Vauthier, Elie Saab, Alexander Wang, Guy Laroche and Marc Jacobs and more. During the fashion week of Brazil for the spring/summer 2011 collections, Ribeiro was the most booked runway model with 27 shows during São Paulo Fashion Week and 26 shows during Rio Fashion Week.
She also works for Victoria's Secret, having appeared in the 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, as well as the 2011 Christmas commercial and the 2012 Valentine's Day commercial alongside Candice Swanepoel and Adriana Lima. She was scheduled to walk the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but fell and severely sprained her ankle during rehearsals. Her outfits for that year were given to Behati Prinsloo and Shanina Shaik. In the 2013 show, because of what happened, the Victoria's Secret producers gave Lais the opportunity to open the Birds of Paradise segment.
She became a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2015. In 1 November 2017, Ribeiro was chosen to wear the "Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra" for the 2017 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show held in Shanghai, China in 28 November 2017. The $2 million bra, named the "Champagne Nights Fantasy Bra", was created by Mouawad. The bra and its matching belt is handset with 6,000 yellow diamonds, yellow sapphires, and blue topaz in 18 karat gold.
Ribeiro has a son, born on 17 May 2008. In 2014, she began dating American basketball player Jared Homan. They have since broken up, and in September 2018, she began dating NBA player Joakim Noah. A year later they became engaged.
