Alessandra Ambrosio Had the Best Time in Bora Bora, and She Has the Instagrams to Prove It

The Victoria’s Secret Angels gathered in Aspen, Colorado earlier this month for a lingerie-filled congress. Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Martha Hunt, Taylor Hill, and more of the brand’s regulars descended on a ranch, clad in their best chaps and cowboy hats, with horses and husky puppies for company, for a new western-themed shoot. Then, while castings for the annual fashion showreportedly in Shanghai this year—got underway, Ambrosio, who, as a contracted Angel, has a direct route into the show, jetted off to Bora Bora, following in Barack Obama’s footsteps, for some much-needed rest and relaxation before the fall’s fashion calendar kicks off. In the week that she’s been staying at the Four Seasons resort, she’s posted a constant deluge of images of clear blue waters, spotted eagle rays, beachfront selfies, and picturesque family portraits. But don’t worry—amid the photography projects, she’s also made time for swimming, yoga, and acaï bowls. See how Ambrosio and the family are unwinding in Bora Bora, as documented on Instagram, here.
