Alessandra Ambrosio is a veteran when it comes to the Victoria’s Secret fashion shows. The Brazilian beauty took her 16th strut down the runway this year, and is looking better than ever, but it still tests her nerves!
She relived first time as she watched Bella and Gigi Hadid take their first and second catwalks respectively this year.
“It was beautiful. It was cute to see them both on the runway. Bella did an amazing job for her first time. You get very nervous doing that show. I get nervous.”
The mom of two recalled her first show, saying, “I wasn’t really aware of how big it was… but thinking, 'Oh my god, I can’t believe I am here.'”
Surprisingly, she has a different reason to be nervous these days. “Because I am a veteran on the show, I need to do it good. You have that pressure, like, make it perfect.”
