Alessandra Ambrosio has been a consistent presence in the fashion industry for over 20 years, so she has much to say about style, dependability, and longevity.
The Brazilian-American model is one of Forbes’ highest-paid models in the world. She has long-standing relationships with various brands and business partners, including a 13-year stint as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. It’s an impressive career for someone who “didn’t think modeling would last.”
One such long-standing partnership is with the luxury watchmaker Omega, for whom Ambrosio has served as an ambassador since 2017.
The model and mother joined us in Madrid, where she was launching the Omega’s Her Time exhibition, to discuss how her style has evolved, how she’s shopping more sustainably, what fashion advice she’ll give her children, and how she’s grown more confident.
What Changes Have You Made to Your Style Over Time?
“I believe I still enjoy being silly and dressing up to suit the occasion or my current mood. I’ve always liked the way I look. However, I believe the change was internal.
Over time, I’ve become more comfortable with who I am and how I carry myself. I can experiment with different looks without feeling self-conscious.”
Whose Sense of Fashion Have You Always Loved, and Why?
“Icons of fashion are women like Brigitte Bardot, Grace Kelly, and Marilyn Monroe because they exuded an air of self-assurance and a sense of humor in their everyday lives. They also adopted a classic and elegant look.”
How Do You Green Your Wardrobe?
“In my private life, I try to keep things as simple as possible. Despite living in Los Angeles, my style consists of swimsuits and other simple beachwear because I was born and raised in Brazil.
Despite my strong interest in fashion, I don’t feel the need to overspend on shopping. I am content with the things that make me feel at ease. When I put on one of my Omega watches, I put on an item that will be passed down from generation to generation, so it is not disposable.”
Fashion Has a Reputation for Being Frivolous, but Why Should We Care About What We Wear?
“It affects how we are in the world if what we wear gives us a sense of comfort and confidence. But that does not imply that we should become fixated on it because it will only cause us anxiety. Let us approach fashion with a playful and fun attitude.
We can then relish trying various looks on and experiencing how they feel. Move on if it doesn’t work. If it does, take pleasure. It’s not everything, of course. Life is about love, family, and friends. Fashion shouldn’t be the main focus; rather, it should be the cherry on top.”
She Wears a Plunging One-piece Swimsuit With Her Kids
Alessandra Ambrosio recently posted several new stunning images and videos of her and her family enjoying the ideal summer vacation while swimming and sunbathing on a boat.
The 41-year-old Alessandra Ambrosio shone during her most recent enjoyable trip. The model shared several images and videos of her family, including her children Anja, 13, and Noah, 10, enjoying the sun in Montenegro on a boat and in the water on her Instagram story.
She wore sunglasses, a one-piece swimsuit with a multicoloured pattern that was flattering, and her long hair was down and blowing in the wind.
Her children, like Alessandra, were also wearing swimsuits that were on the cutting edge of fashion. As the three of them joyfully posed on the boat with their mother, Anja sported a light blue bikini, while Noah sported blue and black swim shorts. They were facing the ocean, which was visible behind them, and the day appeared to be perfect.
