Alessandra Ambrosio is one of the most recognized supermodels on the planet. In fact, when you think Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, you think Alessandra Ambrosio. Her Brazilian beauty is unparalleled by any other lady in the game and that's why when we came across sources confirming that this year was her final strut down the Victoria's Secret stage, we just had to do something to commemorate her almost two decades of service.
Despite our disappointment, we've gotta give it up to Alessandra for her decision to step down from her Victoria's Secret reign. Ambrosio wants to spend more time focusing on her children, and frankly, we can't think of a more admirable reason to give up her runway gig. According to Fox News, Alessandra announced her retirement only hours before the 2017's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show stating she is ready to focus on being a mom to her two kids, Anja, 9, and Noah, 5. Her oldest, Anja, traveled all the way to Shanghai in support of her mom, where Ambrosio promised to blow her a kiss from the catwalk.
Ambrosio made good on her promise and blew her daughter that kiss! It's most definitely the end of a beautiful era to think that Ambrosio will no longer be walking the VS runway, but we respect how gracefully she ended her dynasty. Seriously, she has never looked better! At the end of the day, Ambrosio was one of the best to ever do it and we thank her for her almost 20 years of absolutely killing it. Oh, the memories! Let's take a look back, shall we?
