The small matter of being pregnant won't stop Alessandra Ambrosio from walking the Victoria's Secret runway or starring at Sao Paulo Fashion Week.
24 January 2012
Those Victoria's Secret models certainly have stamina. Alessandra Ambrosio walked the runway five months pregnant for Brazilian designer, Colcci, during Sao Paulo Fashion Week. The looks she wore included a loose fitting denim suit, and a crochet sweater with short shorts.
She was, we now know, two months pregnant when she walked the Victoria's Secret show last November.
"When I first found out I was pregnant I thought, 'Oh my gosh I don't think I'm going to be able to walk on the show'" she told US Weekly when she announced her pregnancy.
"I didn't tell anybody so no one knew at the show that I was pregnant," she said. "A week before, I told my booker I don't think I'm going to be able to fit into the clothes because I gained a few pounds already, but we were just quiet."
Her baby bump was clearly visible at Colcci's show, however.
Fellow Victoria's Secret model, Miranda Kerr, walked in the Balenciaga show while visibly pregnant during spring/summer 2011 Paris Fashion Week.
Yet another Angel, Lily Aldridge, was also pregnant during the Victoria's Secret show. Proof that being with child won't stop the world's most successful models from doing what they do best.
