Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio started taking modeling classes in her native Brazil when she was just 12 years old. By 14, she was one of 20 finalists for the legendary “Elite Model Look” national competition, and the rest, as they say, is history.
As one of the most recognizable faces in the world, she has since appeared on more than 70 international magazine covers, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle, Rolling Stone, GQ, and Marie Claire, to name a few. Most known for her work with lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret, the Brazilian beauty has also represented numerous notable fashion brands including Dolce and Gabbana, Moschino, GUESS, Revlon, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Armani Exchange, Oscar de la Renta, Calvin Klein, and Christian Dior.
When she’s not busy heating up the cameras, she's a devoted mom to daughter Anja, born 2008, and son Noah, born 2012. And about that incredible bod? Ambrosio keeps herself in angelic shape at all times with regular workouts with her trainer, Justin Gelband, as well as rocking the exercise program, “Brazil Butt Lift.” She once told Shape backstage at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that she preps for the runway with “Pilates and spinning…and a spray tan for an extra glow!” —Kristen Aldridge
