When someone thinks of PINK, the multi-million dollar branch of Victoria’s Secret, Alessandra Ambrosio’s face is often synonymous with the brand.  A native of Brazil, Ambrosio began modeling at 15 and quickly climbed the latter in the modeling world, vaulting herself into the international scene. While only joining VS in 2000, her appearance and acumen as a model led to her quick rise to stardom within the company. In 2004, Victoria Secret named her the first official ‘spokesmodel’ of PINK.  Since, Ambrosio has been at the forefront of the fashion world.  At the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, an event viewed annually by upwards of 9 million viewers, she always seems to be the talk of the show.  Whether it’s donning lingerie made entirely of candy or sporting a $2.5 million Dream Fantasy bra, Alessandra Ambrosio often finds a way to steal the show.  Her modeling aspirations haven’t been restricted to just Victoria’s Secret either.  Alessandra has worked in part for big name brands such as Gucci, Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, and Giorgio Armani, among others.  Her work has also been depicted on numerous magazine covers such as Cosmopolitan, GQ, and Vogue.  In light of her success, she has also maintained her own business and clothing lines Alessandra Ambrosio by Sais and Ale by Alessandra. In addition to this, she also maintains a blog for Vogue, where she comments daily on her own wardrobe and fashion. 

At Man of the Hour, we not only nominate her as our Woman of the Month for her modeling abilities, but her success in the business world.  In her career she has ranked as high as #5 on Forbes list of highest paid models, with her estimated earnings having reach over $6 million in only one year.  She’s a crossover talent, having acted in numerous roles in prime time television, reality TV, and movies, including this summer’s release Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Despite her busy schedule, Ambrosio extends her talents to charity work as well, serving as ambassador for National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
