Alessandra Ambrosio has been seen wearing
Alessandra Ambrosio seen on Feb 19 2014 in Brentwood, CA. Alessandra Ambrosio was spotted indulging in some retail therapy at Ron Herman and Rag & Bone in Brentwood on February 19, and was accompanied by her adorable daughter Anja for the shopping trip. Side note, is it now a trend to wear geographic-themed graphic tops in disparate locations? First we saw Diane Kruger reppin' New York while in Beverly Hills, and now we have Ale sporting a top that includes references to both France and Tokyo while in Brentwood. I think that we should definitely all keep our eyes peeled for this style statement to appear on other celebs! Regardless, if you're interested in emulating Alessandra's laid back style, try pairing a message top (like Haute Hippie's Have No Fear Sweater in Grey) with a vintage-y wash pair of denim (both Level 99's Liza Skinny in Je T'Aime and TEXTILE Elizabeth and James' Debbie Jean in Twilight are nice options), and then slip into a comfortable pair of black leather espadrilles. A cool pair of cateye sunglasses (like Wildfox's Le Femme Sunglasses in Black will complete your look quite nicely. Do you like AA's casual outfit for her shopping trip, readers? For those of you who are Alessandra fans, you'll definitely be excited to hear that the supermodel is releasing her own line of clothing, titled Alé by Alessandra. The line will launch with boutique Planet Blue, and according to sources, will feature "breezy dresses, casual t-shirts, and light tunics." So, pretty much everything she usually wears! In a press release, Alessandra said: "I cannot think of a better place to launch the apparel for my brand. I have been a fan of Planet Blue since I moved to California, and the brand’s authentic bohemian beach vibe is the perfect backdrop for my very first collection." Are any of you excited to check out the pieces?
Alessandra Ambrosio seen on Feb 01 2014 in New York, NY. Alessandra Ambrosio was seen heating up the red carpet of the Leather & Laces Party which was held at the Liberty Theater in NYC on February 1, to celebrate Super Bowl weekend. Alessandra really took the "leather and laces" theme to heart, as she showed up wearing a sexy Alexandre Vauthier leather dress with strategically placed stitching. From there, Ale added on a pair of pointed toe Christian Louboutin pumps, a Stark python clutch, and an Anita Ko ring. If you like the idea of this type of look, but want to tone it down a little (or perhaps a lot!), start by choosing a mini dress in a similar color that isn't as in-your-face sexy. Two nice options are either Velvet's Strapless Dress in Wine or Sue Wong's dressier Rose Detail Strapless Dress in Plum. From there, add on a python clutch as Alessandra did (check out Primary's Solid Python Clutch in Black) and a pretty silver ring (try Jennifer Elizabeth's Khloe Ring in Oxidized Silver) and you'll be all set. What are your thoughts on this look for AA, too much or just enough? Apparently, E! Online thought that this look fell into the "too much" category, as they said: "At first glance, we actually thought it was made of 9 leather belts sewn together with leather string. We're still not entirely sure that isn't the style situation, but what we're most concerned about, is what we're going to see when the Victoria's Secret model sits down. There's something slightly tacky about this maroon mini—like it could sell for $19.99 at Forever 21." Ouch! Do you agree with E!'s tough assessment of this outfit?
Alessandra Ambrosio seen on Dec 17 2013 in West Hollywood, CA. Alessandra Ambrosio was caught by the paparazzi leaving lunch at The Ivy in West Hollywood on December 17, and the supermodel was sporting a major double denim look for her lunchtime outing.

Natural colored Hermes accessories, including a belt and a tote bag, added an earthy feel to her look, which was finished off with a pair of suede boots. For a similar pair, be sure to check out Rag & Bone's Newbury Boot in Camel Suede. Do you like Ale's double denim outfit, everyone - or is this just a bit too much denim for your liking? The supermodel recently had a chat with Net A Porter's The Edit, and opened up about whether she would ever consider posing for Playboy, as the legendary Kate Moss recently did. Said Alessandra: "I would have to discuss it with my family and make sure it was artistic. Cindy Crawford and Stephanie Seymour did it and they made me want to model. It's funny how casual you become about [your breasts] after children. I mean, you breast-feed in front of your parents. Still after two kids, they're not the same. I'm afraid of having them done, though. There's too much of that in L.A." Thoughts?

From there, Alessandra donned a neon tank under a white button down with front pockets (try Free People's Best of Both Worlds Top in Shell), in addition to a pair of black booties (BC Footwear's Eager Beaver Bootie in Black are similar) and super cool shades. A few layered necklaces and bracelets (get the layered look in a colorful way with Ettika's Triple Stack Multi Color Satin Cord Bracelet) and an enviable Celine tote provided the final touches to AA's outfit. Thoughts, everyone? In other Ambrosio news, the supermodel stunner recently chatted with Yahoo! about her overall diet regime and her go-to foods. She said: "If you have time, it's great to try and work out three to four times a week. If I have something big, like the Victoria's Secret fashion show or a shoot, I try to work out daily. Two days ago I had pasta and I knew I would be in a bikini today so I just had a little. I felt like eating it! I just don't eat too much of it. You don't ever want to deprive yourself. But during the week I try to be healthy. I love salads, teas, and green juices. I get a lot of organic food. Anything fresh is my go-to." Sounds like she likes to indulge at times but knows her limit... totally agree with her. Life is too short to completely cut out any food you love!

So, so true... and so wise, Ale!

Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio was seen hitting up several furniture stores along Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood on March 22, rocking a casual tie dye look for her day of errands.

Alessandra Ambrosio seen on Oct 31 2012 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The always stunning Alessandra Ambrosio was photographed heading to the after party for Sao Paulo Fashion Week 2012 in Sao Paulo, Brazil on October 31, after walking in the Colcci runway show the day before. For her after party outfit, Alessandra went for the gold in a gorgeous metallic long sleeve mini dress, which she paired with simple nude strappy sandals. To get a look inspired by AA's here, start with a sexy metallic dress - such as Alexia Admor's One Shoulder Triangle Sequin Dress in Bronze or Sue Wong's Metallic Low Back Dress in Gold - and then add on to the metallic mood with a pair of striking heels, such as Giuseppe Zanotti's Miniglitt Ramino Heels in Rose Gold. From there, keep your accessories and jewelry to a minimum, as Alessandra did here. If you must add on a piece of jewelry, I'd suggest opting for something low-key, such as a nice pair of stud earrings. Ben Amun's Small Crystal Flower Stud Earrings in Silver are a good choice. What are your thoughts on Alessandra's ensemble here, friends - hot or not? After her fashionable appearance in Brazil, Ale was back to work in NYC at a fitting for the much anticipated Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The supermodel took to her Twitter account to say: "Doing my fitting @VictoriasSecret and sorry guys I’m not about to show u what I’m wearing #VSFahionShow #VSFashionShow2012 #FantasyBra2012" Ale will be modeling the Fantasy Bra this year... can't wait to see!

A metallic manicure and a pink lippie completed AA's outfit. What are your thoughts on this look for the Victoria's Secret supermodel, friends - thumbs up or thumbs down? The gorgeous gal recently dished to Modelinia.com on how she stays healthy during Fashion Week and prepares for the upcoming Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and said: "I try to stay healthy during Fashion Week and I have a green juice every day. It is best if you can get it fresh otherwise you can pick it one up at the grocery store. I like to go to Whole Foods. Oh and I get massages, especially foot massages. You need them after spending so much time in heels!" However, it seems that Ale has one indulgence, as the following item is regularly on her backstage request list: salt and vinegar chips. "They're my favorite!" See, even supermodels take a moment to indulge every now and again!
