Alessandra Ambrosio

Alessandra Ambrosio

Alessandra AmbrosioAlessandra Ambrosio (born April 11, 1981) is a Brazilian supermodel. Her last name is spelled in Portuguese as Ambrósio, but she omits the diacritic mark in her modeling work. She is one of the faces of Guess?, Next (UK) and Victoria's Secret.

Alessandra Ambrosio was part of the deluge of Brazilian models that emerged after Gisele Bündchen opened the floodgates. One of the star models of that group, of which fellow Victoria's Secret/Guess? Model (and best friend) Ana Beatriz Barros is a member, the 5'10", light brown-haired Alessandra Ambrosio accumulated quite a career in the late 1990's into the next century. Alessandra Ambrosio was born in Erechim, Brazil, a small town in the south. As an early teen, she enrolled in a modeling class and subsequently was entered in the Elite modeling agency's 1996 Look of the Year competition. Though she did not win, she was offered an Elite contract one year after.

Her first modeling job was the cover of the Brazilian Marie Claire, and Alessandra Ambrosio followed with other editorial work, but it was not long after that the Marcianos at Guess signed Alessandra Ambrosio for their fall Millennium campaign in 2000. Her lucrative print career began with being a Guess? Girl and continued with deals with Revlon and Victoria's Secret. Alessandra Ambrosio walked the VS runway for the first time in 2000 and continued to be a fixture in subsequent shows. Alessandra Ambrosio was also picked to be the spokesmodel for the 2004 Pink line by Victoria's Secret.
