Alessandra Ambrosio is without a doubt one of the Angels who has left their mark on the Victoria's Secret brand and its famous Fashion Shows. In 2000, age just 19, the Brazilian model strutted her stuff in the sexiest fashion show of the year for the first time, then never looked back. Seventeen Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows later, the model has announced that she is quitting her role as a Victoria's Secret Angel to focus on other projects.
While Alessandra Ambrosio worked with Victoria's Secret for the first time in 2000, she only became an official Angel four years later in 2004. And the brand placed its faith in Alessandra Ambrosio multiple times, first of all signing her up as an ambassador for its PINK brand between 2004 and 2006, then picking her to wear the Fantasy Bra twice, once in 2012 and again in 2014.
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have been working for this amazing brand that inspires me and women all over the world. In my wildest dreams I would have never imagined doing 17 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows. Thank you Ed, and all my Victoria’s Secret family for making these memories unforgettable. Last night was so emotional to say goodbye to my #angel sisters but we put on the biggest and best show ever. I could not have done this without all the love and support from my fans. It gives me great pride to be part the Victoria’s Secret movement! I will always be cheering for you! Love you forever
