Send Me An Angel: Alessandra Ambrósio
WARNING!!! Extreme hotness ensues. Proceed at your own risk. Name: Alessandra Corine Ambrósio DOB: April 11, 1981 Nationality: Brazilian (Erechim, Brazil) Childhood: She was just eight years old when she decided she wanted to be a model, after seeing a picture of top Cover Girl Karen Mulder in a magazine. Ambrosio had particularly large ears which made her insecure about her appearance. So at the tender age of 11, she had cosmetic surgery done to get her ears pinned back. Unfortunately, she had complications from the surgery for the two years following. Accomplishments: She was described by retired supermodel Tyra Banks as "The future of the modeling world". She was chosen as their first spokesmodel for Victoria's Secret PINK line. She is currently the face for the UK company Next and Armani AX. Ambrosio was also selected by AskMen.com as Number 2 out of the Top 99 Most Desirable Women for 2008. She enrolled in modelling classes at the age of 12 and began her career at the age of 15 modelling for Dilson Stein. *I'm suddenly ridiculously thirsty; my mouth's so dry.
