Gooooo Brazil! No, we’re not talking about the World Cup – we’re talking about the country’s own Victoria’s Secret angel, miss Alessandra Ambrosio. While most of the universe’s #TBTs are goofy and/or embarrassing photos from middle school probably involving spaghetti caught in our braces, but when Alessandra Ambrosio Instagrams throwback  photo, we’re all put to shame.

Take it away, Ace…

But really, she looks incredible. This photo of the Brazilian bombshell was taken by fellow Brazilian photographer, Gui Paganini for Vogue Brazil in 2009. The shoot features a bronzed Alessandra in undone men’s button-down shirts and lingerie…is it getting hot in here, or? Having had her first child only a year before, all we can say is damn, girl. Oh, and let us not forget to mention that she opened the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show the same year. Basically, 2009 was the year of the Alessandra. Five years later, Ambrosio looks virtually the same (aka amazing), sans bright blonde highlights. These days, the supermodel is staying busy with her clothing line, Ále by Alessandra, which she launched in the spring of this year. The line is geared towards women 18-35 years old and will feature everything from casual sportswear to formal wear. And with Alessandra’s Midas touch, we’re sure it will be to die for. When she’s not busy being a mogul, Ambrosio is busy being a devoted mother to her daughter, Anja – now six years old. She is also an ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and remains involved with Haitian Relief efforts. Want to see more from photographer Gui Paganini? Check out his portfolio at!
