"Take care of yourself, be healthy, and always believe you can be successful in anything you truly want. "

"I never watch TV! I will be on a board or jumping out of a plane anytime! "

"Believe in yourself, listen to the photographers you work with, and try to be professional at all times. "

"80 percent of the time I'm on some beautiful island in a bikini. But I'm working and everybody else is on their honeymoon!"

- Alessandra Ambrosio

When Ambrosio was 12 years old, enrolled in modeling classes then, began modeling for Dilson Stein at age 15. Winning Brazil's Elite Model Look started her modeling career. Her first big modeling job was the cover of the Brazilian Elle magazine. Elite passed along some of her Polaroids to Guess which led her to do the Millennium GUESS? campaign along with her friend and fellow Brazilian Ana Beatriz Barros. She has since been in huge demand, working with big-name brands including Revlon, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Rolex, Oscar de la Renta, Gucci, Escada, Rocco Barocco, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren, as well as the famed Pirelli Calendar. As for fashion shows, she has walked the catwalks for designers such as Laura Biagiotti, Christian Lacroix, Byblos, Fendi, Issey Miyake, Kenzo, Christian Dior, Nicole Miller, Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Vivienne Westwood, Oscar de la Renta, among others. She appeared in over 50 international magazine covers such as Cosmopolitan, Elle, GQ, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Ocean Drive, Vogue and the only model to appear on the cover of Glamour in the United States in 2006.

In 2004, Ambrosio launched her line of swimwear called Alessandra Ambrosio by Sais, a division of Rosa Chá. It sold 10,000 units in only its first month on the market.

Her best knowns collaboration is with American lingerie brand Victoria's Secret. She appeared in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for the first time in 2000, and continues to be a participant in the subsequent shows. Her most notable walk down the runway was in 2005 wearing lingerie made entirely out of candy. In 2004, she was selected as the first spokesmodel for Victoria's Secret PINK line. She is currently a contract 'Angel' and spokesmodel for Victoria's Secret.Her 'Angel' status has brought her to the public's attention being cited by the popular media as one of the world's sexiest women. She was chosen as one of People magazine's annual 100 Most Beautiful People in the World, in May 2007 along with fellow 'Angels' Ambrosio is among the world's top-earning models.

Ambrosio was the face for the UK company Next and starred in their first television campaign in 12 years.She is also signed to Storm Model Management in London.

Only three months after giving birth to her first child, Ambrosio appeared in the Victoria's Secret fashion show 2008.

Television appearances
Ambrosio has made several television appearances, notably a cameo as herself on HBO's Entourage along with Izabel Goulart; The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn; Late Night with Conan O’Brien; as guest judge on Project Runway season 2: Team Lingerie and The Tyra Banks Show where she was a guest twice. She appeared alongside TV personality, Regis Philbin in a worldwide commercial for Hummer H2. In 2006, she had a cameo on the box-office hit movie, Casino Royale appearing briefly as Tennis Girl #1.

Ambrosio guest-starred on How I Met Your Mother (episode: "The Yips") on November 26, 2007 with her fellow Victoria's Secret Angels Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks, Marisa Miller, Miranda Kerr, and Heidi Klum.

What does it take to become a supermodel? It helps to have a statuesque figure, fabulously long legs, sultry bedroom eyes, and impeccable genes. In short, it helps to look exactly like Alessandra Ambrosio. This Brazilian bombshell has appeared in high-profile campaigns for GUESS, Revlon, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and of course, Victoria’s Secret.

And in 2008, Alessandra Ambrosio signed on to replace the departing Gisele Bundchen in the lingerie company’s popular Angels campaign.

If Gisele Bundchen is the only Brazilian supermodel's name you know, it's high time you checked out Alessandra Ambrosio. She's been described as "the future of modeling" by Ms. Tyra Banks herself. Although we don't always agree with Tyra's choices when our female companions force us to sit through episodes of America's Next Top Model, this time we thinks she's right. This long-legged goddess has received plenty of attention over the past two years after being ranked No. 36 and then No. 6 on's list of the Top 99 Most Desirable Women.

We love that Alessandra Ambrosia isn't just rail thin; she actually works for her body. “I work out with my Brazilian trainer, Leandro,” she explains. “He invented the Brazilian Butt Lift which is a mix of samba, capoeira and aerobics.” Here's to hoping the Brazilian Butt Lift makes its way to gyms across America very soon.

Ambrósio is currently one of Victoria's Secret Angels and the former face for the UK company Next.
Aside from modeling work, Ambrósio represents as the National Ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Ambrosio loves surfing, seeing bands, drinking caipirinha and eating chocolates, which she admits to indulging in every day.[citation needed] She is very conscious of her figure and works out with her Brazilian trainer doing the Brazilian Butt Lift, which is a mix of samba, capoeira and aerobics.[citation needed]
When Ambrosio first came to New York, Gisele Bündchen lent her apartment for two weeks and Adriana Lima helped her translate English.
