Woman of the Week: Alessandra Ambrosio

The Brazilian beauty is so much more than another Victoria’s Secret Angel.

EDGAR staff October 21, 2014

We won't lie, we've been waiting for a topical reason to make Alessandra Ambrosio our Woman of the Week for quite some time. So it was typical of the universe that two perfectly good reasons came along at once.

Firstly, jeans connoisseurs Replay put the Victoria's Secret Angel in its #StretchYourLimits campaign alongside some of Barcelona's football stars. But we'll be honest, the Brazilian beauty stole the limelight. Secondly, Ambrosio made a local celebrity appearance at the opening of new Dubai restaurant Clé. And voilà, we had our reason(s).

The 33-year old is in every sense the modern-day supermodel - in other words, she does an awful lot more than simply pose in front of a camera. The mother of two - incredibly she walked the runway just three months after giving birth to her first child - is an ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, appeared in the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony as part of the handover to Rio de Janeiro and even had a cameo in the James Bond Casino Royale film.

Worth $45 million to boot, maybe we didn't need to wait for a topical reason to feature her after all. Alessandra Ambrosio. Alessandra Ambrosio. Alessandra Ambrosio. Alessandra Ambrosio. Alessandra Ambrosio. Alessandra Ambrosio. Alessandra Ambrosio.
