The day has almost arrived: The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will take place in Paris Dec. 5, and models from around the world have already begun to descend on the French capital, gathering to take selfies, explore the city, and squeeze in a few last workouts before the legendary show. Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Lily Donaldson have all been spotted arriving at Charles De Gaulle over Thanksgiving weekend — the last hurrah, and last bit of family time, for many of the women who will walk the show. Brazilian supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio will walk for Victoria’s Secret for the 17th consecutive year — she’s best known as an Angel, having been the first face of Victoria’s Secret Pink in addition to her other runway work — and she’s taking in the sights around Paris in the week leading up to the show. And she’s armed with a chic, all-black wardrobe worthy of the most elite of Victoria’s Secret’s go-to models.
Who: Alessandra Ambrosio.
When: Monday, November 28.
Where: Strolling the streets of Paris ahead of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
What: A Wolford bodysuit and Greta Constantine chiffon skirt topped off with an embellished Moschino leather jacket, Hermes bag, Le Silla boots, Linda Farrow sunglasses, and Spinelli Kilcollin earrings.
Why: All-black everything will never let you down. The Brazilian supermodel pairs a sheer, swirling floor-length chiffon skirt with a turtleneck bodysuit, balancing out the ethereal bottom half of her look with something a bit more seasonally appropriate — and a bit edgier — on top. A cropped embellished leather jacket by Moschino’s Jeremy Scott (one also favored by Scott’s bestie Madonna) is the centerpiece of the look, pearls and chains dangling like punk epaulettes. Plenty of rings and dark nails top off the punk aesthetic, while pointy-toed boots and an oversized leather bag, very Mary Poppins by way of Hermes, give her a bit of a witchy vibe.
