”You can’t listen to what everybody says; you have to be yourself”- Super Model Alessandra Ambrosio For Ocean Drive Magazine

33 year old Brazilian supermodel and Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio is Ocean Drive Magazine’s cover girl for February, rocking pieces from her swimwear line Ále which she designs herself she talks her swim wear line, how she stays fit, haters, catfights amongst models and sharing the wonder bra with Adriana lima. Read excerpts below:


On her swim wear line; “Ále by Alessandra is like my third child, as I have been working on it for quite [a while]. Most of the pieces in the collection are inspired by my Brazil-bohemia-meets-Malibu-chic lifestyle and are very feminine, colorful, and effortless. I lean towards bohemian-chic style because I love flowy dresses, layered pieces, and you can never go wrong with a good fitted pair of jeans. That was my inspiration when I designed my collection.”


On her physique; “We’re just as human as everybody else, and nobody is perfect. For me, it’s more about being healthy. When I was young, I didn’t care. Now, if I eat two days of junk food, I feel terrible, and then you have to do a cleanse to feel good. Sometimes I’ll splurge. I was at a music festival this whole weekend, and they didn’t have anything really healthy, so I was eating chicken tenders, but now I’m going to have sushi this week and nice, clean food, like salad. It’s all about balancing and trying to stay healthy.”


On haters; “I don’t even take it personally anymore. There are so many different opinions. If I read and I don’t like it, I’m like, whatever… You can’t listen to what everybody says; you have to be yourself.”


On rivalry with her fellow models; “We get inspired by each other. They’re my co-workers, they’re gorgeous, and everyone there has their own spotlight,” she told the publication. “Maybe today it’s my turn to wear the Fantasy Bra, but next year, it’s going to be someone else. When you have kids at home, there are way more important things to worry about,” she shared. “I don’t focus on negative things; I try to focus on good things, and I’m [too] busy in my personal life to give my time to something stupid.”


On sharing the Victoria’s Secret Wonder Bra and spotlight with Adriana Lima; “Me and Adriana had a great time, we’ve known each other for a long time; we started at the same time in Brazil, and we’ve done a lot of shoots together for Victoria’s Secret, so it was amazing they thought of us to be the first two girls to wear the double Fantasy Bra.”
