Alessandra Ambrósio Joins the Model-Turned-Designer Club
Lily Aldridge isn’t the only model making her mark on the fashion world. Though she and fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrósio are best known for wearing very little clothing, both of them are street style pros, and now both of them have designed casual collections for staple California brands.
Ambrósio’s collection, Ále by Alessandra, reflects the supermodel’s Brazilian/bohemian style mix, with lots of soft fabrics and flowy shapes. It also draws on the model’s time in L.A. with fun prints, ab-baring styles and plunging necklines. And of course, since she spends much of her day in swimwear, you’ll see plenty of stylish cover-ups and beachy, breezy styles, which will incorporate tie-dye, laser-cut details, feathers and silk.

“I cannot think of a better place to launch the apparel for my brand,” Ambrósio said in a statement of the L.A. style mega store Planet Blue, where she’ll be exclusively selling her new “designed and curated” line in stores and online. “The authentic bohemian beach vibe is the perfect backdrop for my very first collection.”
Above, see two of the looks from the upcoming collection, which will range from $60 to $260 and launch on March 17. Tell us: Which style most appeals to you? Would you shop the model’s designs?
