Bikini-Clad Alessandra Ambrosio Shows a Whole Lot of Skin & Abs
Here’s what the 33-year-old Brazilian supermodel had to share with the mag:
On wearing the Victoria’s Secret “Fantasy Bra” twice: “Before the first time I did it, I was like, ‘When am I going to wear the Fantasy Bra, when is it going to be my turn?…I wasn’t expecting to wear the Fantasy Bra again, but when I got the news [about 2014], it was so unexpected and such a huge honor. It was new for Victoria’s Secret to have two girls modeling the bras on the runway, and me and Adriana [Lima] had a great time. We’ve known each other for a long time; we started at the same time in Brazil, and we’ve done a lot of shoots together for Victoria’s Secret, so it was amazing they thought of us to be the first two girls to wear the double Fantasy Bra.”
On being a pioneer in social media and handling Internet bullies: “I always liked social media. I was one of the first models I think that had a website, and I had a camera with me all the time so my fans would see little parts of my life through my eyes, and I think social media is an extension of that. It’s important, but at the same time, it’s not an obligation. I’m having fun when I’m doing it. If I have to do it for an obligation, I don’t even like it because it’s losing its meaning. I don’t even take [Internet bullies] personally anymore. There are so many different opinions. If I read and I don’t like it, I’m like, whatever… You can’t listen to what everybody says; you have to be yourself.”
On balancing motherhood with daughter Anja and son Noah with work: “My daughter, she has a very strong personality; people say she’s exactly like me, that her temperament is exactly like mine. She’s very girly, and I’m like that too, and she has a lot of energy. I never stop, and she’s kind of the same, never gets tired,”. “[Noah] is so cuddly; all I want to do is kiss him all day long. Anja is my buddy, she’s my best friend, but he’s the love of my life.”
