Even for someone as beautiful as Alessandra Ambrosio, to elevate yourself from supermodel to icon takes something special, something intangible. Whatever it is, Alessandra has it. Transcending even the most prestigious catwalks, featuring in film and television, Alessandra's name now carries with it an added significance. She is a by-word for beauty, high fashion and elegance and now she's GQ Middle East's Fashion Icon Award winner, 2019.
People talk about fashion as art, but in order for that to happen there must be a perfect intersection between designer and muse. If you're lucky, this fleeting moment is captured on film and becomes something larger than the sum of its parts. Something else. Something other. And therein lies Alessandra's talent. She is capable of producing these moments in time over and over again.
Part of a golden catwalk generation, not seen since ‘The Big Six’of the 1990s and a Victoria’s Secret Angel for 13 years, her power to create these moments was vital in making the brand’s runway shows one of the hottest tickets in the world.
Founder of Gal Floripa swimwear and an advocate for Together Band, a global community, sharing commitment to all of the 17 UN Global Goals, Alessandra is using her unique position to help make the world a better place.
