Early Life

Alessandra Ambr贸sio was born Alessandra Corine Ambr贸sio on April 11, 1981, in Erechim, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. She is one of two daughters of Lucilda and Luiz Ambr贸sio and is of Italian and Polish descent. She enrolled in a modeling class at age 12 and was selected as one of 20 finalists for the 1995 Elite Model Look national competition for Brazil. Growing up, Ambr贸sio was insecure about her large ears, and at the age of 11, she had cosmetic surgery to have her ears pinned back, which resulted in complications two years later. In a 2006 appearance on "The Tyra Banks Show," Alessandra disclosed that the bad experience with plastic surgery she had when she was a kid had discouraged her from ever having any work done again.

Modeling Career

Alessandra began modeling for Dilson Stein at age 15. Her first modeling job was the cover of Brazillian "Elle" magazine. Although she did not win the competition, Elite Model Look passed along some of her portfolio Polaroids to Guess, which led to her being hired for the Millennium GUESS? Campaign.

Ambr贸sio had been modeling since the age of 12 and had already modeled for the likes of Gucci, Calvin Kline, and Oscar de la Renta, and she had graced the covers of elite magazines such as "Cosmopolitan," "GQ," "Harper's Bazaar," "Marie Claire," and "Vogue" by the time she was selected by Victoria's Secret to be the face of their PINK line in 2004. That same year, she launched her own swimwear line called Alessandra Ambrosio by Sais, which sold 10,000 units in its first month on the market. She then was hired as the face of the UK company Next. She starred in their first TV commercial in 12 years.

In 2005, she walked the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway wearing lingerie made entirely out of candy.

In the 2008 edition of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, she walked the runway three months after giving birth to her first child and opened the show the following year. In 2009, she posed for the cover of "Marie Claire" with Sacha Baron Cohen to promote his film "Bruno." Later that year, Ambr贸sio became the face of the sportswear brand Colcci and co-starred with Ashton Kutcher in a denim ad. She was ranked #5 on "Forbes" magazine's "The World's Top-Earning Models" list with an estimated earning of $5 million for the 2010-2011 year. She became a blogger for "Vogue" in October 2011.

The 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show saw Ambr贸sio wearing the heaviest wings (30 lb) ever made for the show while pregnant with her second child. In August 2012, she appeared in the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony, representing the Brazillian fashion tradition in the handover segment to Rio de Janeiro.

In 2012, Ambr贸sio was chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra at the V.S. Fashion Show. The Floral Fantasy Bra, created by London Jewelers, featured amethysts, rubies, sapphires, and diamonds (including a 20-carat white diamond in the center), all set in rose and yellow gold, according to "InStyle." There was also a matching belt adorned with more than 5,200 precious stones. She wore the Fantasy Bra again alongside Adriana Lima. Both bras are said to have cost $2.5 million each.

In the spring of 2014, Ambr贸sio launched her own fashion and lifestyle brand called 脕le by Alessandra in collaboration with the American retailer Cherokee. Her line features everything from casual wear to formal attire and targets females between 18 to 35 years old. It was first shown by the Southern California-based retailer Planet Blue. In February 2016, Alessandra appeared on the cover of "GQ" alongside Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo. That same year, she was chosen alongside fellow Brazillian model Adriana Lima to be NBC's food and culture correspondent for the 2016 Summer Olympics. After the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show in 2017, Ambr贸sio announced via her Instagram that she was retiring after 17 shows throughout her career.
