She made a name for herself on the catwalk with Victoria’s Secret, retiring from the lingerie brand in 2017 after working with them for 13 years.
But swapping her lingerie for swimwear, Alessandra Ambrosio has still made sure to flaunt her runway-worthy frame and slipped into a very skimpy cobalt blue bikini while soaking up the sun in Brazil.
Taking to Instagram on Tuesday, the model, 37, shared a beach snap with her 9.8million followers, where she was seen parading her pert behind while reflecting on the New Year.
Stripping down to her two-piece, Alessandra looked sensational in the barley-there design that paired together a matching bikini top and thong-style briefs.
Turning her back to the camera, the beauty drew further attention to her posterior as she lifted one foot and threw her arms into the air in delight.
Alessandra left her brunette locks down in a tousled style and, sporting a bronzed glow, protected herself from the sun’s rays with aviator shades and a straw cowboy hat.
She appeared to reflect on the New Year in the caption that accompanied her post, as she penned alongside it: ‘One last look back to an amazing year…’
The fashion star – who was born in Brazil – has been enjoying her native country with her new beau, Italian fashion designer Nicolo Oddi.
Nicolo is the founder and CEO of Alanui, a knitwear fashion label based in Milan which he created with his sister Carlotta in 2016.
The couple reportedly first began dating in August, just five months after the beauty confirmed her split from her ex-partner Jamie Mazur.
She and US businessman Jamie first began dating in 2005 and announced their engagement three years later in 2008. The couple share two children together; daughter Anja, 10, and son Noah, six.
Alessandra confirmed her split from Jamie in March 2018, revealing the pair had decided to end their 10-year engagement.
An insider told Us Weekly at the time of the split: ‘They [have] been trying to keep their split on the down low. But Alessandra has been out and about ready to mingle and hasn’t been taking Jamie to anything.’
As well as her relationship, Alessandra has been focusing more time on her children, along with her swimwear brand and acting career. So much so, that the mother-of-two decided to retire from her work with Victoria’s Secret.
She had starred in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for 17 showcases, before confirming that 2017’s China offering would be her last.
Alessandra has reportedly been joined by her children in Brazil.
Previously discussing how she juggles family life with her career in the public eye, Alessandra insisted her children are her ‘priority’, as she told the Khaleej Times: ‘What I try and do is be very selective with work.
‘Obviously, my priorities are my two kids, so I’m always there for them.
‘But they know that their mummy has to work and she has to travel. When I can, I bring them with me.’
