She’s a gorgeous Brazilian bombshell with a fantastic figure and a net worth many models can only dream of, and now the beautiful Alessandra Ambrosio has added a new venture to her already stellar career, creating her very own fashion line. The Victoria’s Secret Angel is spreading her wings and following the example set by fellow lingerie models Gisele Bundchen, Tyra Banks and Heidi Klum, all of whom have tried their hand at creating designer clothing.

Alessandra Ambrosio is currently collaborating with long-established US fashion brand Cherokee to produce a collection of formal and casual wear for women, titled Alé by Alessandra. The brand is due to make its debut in Spring 2014, and will reportedly include items like designer jeans, blouses and maxi dresses – all reflecting Alessandra’s elegantly bohemian personal style.

Beauty and Brains

Alessandra enrolled in modelling classes at the age of twelve and was modelling professionally by age 15. Since then, she’s appeared in campaigns for Revlon, Guess and Dior, modelled on the runway for Chanel and Prada, and appeared on the covers of innumerable glossy fashion magazines. She takes her career very seriously, and this latest venture is no different. “This is not a hobby for me” says Alessandra Ambrosio. “I’ve been a fashion model for 15 years and designing is just an extension of my career… this is a business transition that I plan to have around for a long time”.

While she does plan to focus on the business side of fashion in the years to come, Alessandra has made it clear that she will also continue to model lingerie for Victoria’s Secret. She’s been one of the brand’s most iconic models since 2004, modelling a selection of memorable creations at the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show over the years. Among these are the gemstone-and-diamond-encrusted Floral Fantasy Bra and a gorgeous lingerie ensemble crafted entirely from candy. Alessandra Ambrosio is also known as the first ambassador for the Victoria’s Secret PINK Collection.

Passion and Experience

Alessandra will be putting a great deal of love into her upcoming fashion line. “I know what I like and what I want to see” she says. “I want to be satisfied just as much as the next customer. I’m creating a brand that’s everything I am passionate about and have experience in”. The 31-year-old mother of two is widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful women, and as an ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, it seems the lovely Alessandra Ambrosio has a beautiful heart as well. This is one Angel that’s sure to soar to great heights for years to come.
