Alessandra Ambrosio was at the Victoria's Secret shop in NYC's Herald Square this morning for the revealing of their annual Fantasy Bra! She has the honor of modeling this year's version, a gem-encrusted bra and belt combo from London Jewelers, during the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which tapes next month in the Big Apple and airs on CBS Dec. 4. It was the latest stop during a busy 24-hour period for Alessandra. Last night, she joined Gisele Bündchen at the Boston opening of In Your Face, an exhibit of Mario Testino photographs. This morning, Alessandra was up early to tout Victoria's Secret on Good Morning America. We caught up with Alessandra in Herald Square, where she dished about modeling the bra after welcoming her second child, son Noah, in March, and her beauty and fitness routine. Alessandra told us:
- On getting the call that she's modeling the Fantasy Bra this year: "When they called to say that I was wearing the Fantasy Bra, I was nursing my baby and he was 2 weeks old, so I was in total mother mode. They told me I am wearing the most amazing bra, the Fantasy Bra. I was like, 'How am I going to do this?'"
- On her beauty routine when she isn't working: "My beauty routine — I wash my face and put on moisturizer or vitamin C serum. No makeup when I am not working because when I work we use makeup at all hours. But when I am not working is all about making your skin feel good."
- What's different about her prep this year for the show: "I try to go to the gym more and I try to go to Pilates almost every day in my spare time. I have been doing a lot of spinning classes. Last year I did spinning classes a lot and it made me feel really good."
- On her best moment as a Victoria's Secret Angel: "I have been working with Victoria's Secret for so long. I love everybody. We are like a big family. My big moment was when I got the call for the Fantasy Bra and I felt the biggest pressure because I just had a baby — and I am wearing the Fantasy Bra this year! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world."
