Alessandra Ambrosio was born on April 11, 1981, in the Brazilian town of Erichim, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. She took up local modeling classes at the age of 12 and participated in Brazil’s legendary ‘Elite Model Look’ competition two years later in 1996, where she landed among the 20 finalists. At the age of 15, she debuted in modeling for Dilson Stein, who’s credited for discovering top models Gisele Bündchen and Caroline Trentini. Her modeling job took the right path when she appeared on the cover page of Brazilian Elle magazine.
Thereafter, Alessandra Ambrosio was signed by Guess for its Fall 2000 Millennium Campaign. She was hired by the American lingerie brand ‘Victoria’s Secret’ in 2000 and made her runway appearance at its fashion show. In 2004, she launched her own swimwear line, Alessandra Ambrosio by Sais, as a division of Rosa Cha, and was well received with 10,000 units being sold in its first month. She modeled at the The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (2005), dressed in lingerie made completely from candy. In 2009, she featured on the cover of Marie Claire’s July edition, along with Sacha Baron Cohen to promote his film Brüno (2009).
