How Supermodels Do the Super Bowl

For Alessandra Ambrosio, it’s all about guac and wine. Hold the beer.


The biggest Super Bowl party in town is before the game even starts. This year, the annual “Leather & Laces” fête presented by MGM Grand is hosted in San Francisco by Entourage stars Jeremy Piven and Emmanuelle Chriqui as well as supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio and Emily Ratajkowski. Tickets cost from $495 to $950, but if you want to mimic the experience from your couch, here’s Ambrosio’s play-by-play of how to enjoy the game.

Is this your first Super Bowl? This is my third time going to the Super Bowl. I went two years ago in New York when I hosted Leather and Laces, and also last year in Phoenix.

How well do you know the rules? Who explained them to you? I am not the expert on the rules by any means, but I do know the basics. Every time I go to the game I learn a bit more from friends that go with me.

Which team are you rooting for? The Panthers as they are having an amazing season. I heard that they only lost once the whole year.

Who is your favorite athlete? That is tough. If I had to pick one it would probably be Neymar as I am Brazilian and we are crazy about soccer.

If you could play a sport professionally, which one would it be? I would either play volleyball or surf.

Favorite Super Bowl snack? I love guacamole.

What do you do during half time? I usually watch the half-time show with my friends. I am so excited about this year’s show and I can’t wait to see Coldplay and Beyoncé. I think it is going to be great.

What’s your beer of choice? I prefer wine
