Model Spotlight: Alessandra Ambrosio

Our New York fashion photographers have been working consistently with Brazilian modeling agency, Way Model Management, in our Brooklyn photo studio. Way Model Management is both a fashion model agency in its own right as a well as a mother agency. A mother agency is a modeling agency that discovers young models, propels their careers, signs them to larger agencies and then takes a percentage of their earnings. Our New York fashion photography team has gotten to work with several of Way Model’s budding stars, Alexia Bellini and Marina Albino . Way Models is a major mother agency for supermodels such as Victoria Secret Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio.

Alessandra Ambrosio was born in 1981 in Erechim, Brazil. The beautiful model has both Italian and Polish ancestry and started her modeling career early. At age 12 she enrolled in modeling class and then in 1996 she became a finalist for the Elite Model Look national competition in Brazil. Soon, her modeling career was on a role with her first notable modeling job as the cover model for Brazilian Elle Magazine. Soon, her Polaroids were passed around and she booked the Millenium GUESS? Campaign. Her modeling work continued to rise in prominence and she appeared in advertisements for major brands like Revlon, Dior, Armani and Ralph Lauren. Aside for notable fashion editorials, Alessandra Ambrosio has also made a name for herself walking runway for fashion houses, Prada, Chanel and Oscar de la Renta. By 2004, she had entered an even more profitable level of modeling when she was selected as the first spokesmodel for the Victoria’s Secret “Pink” line. Since then, she has continued to walk the runway for their famous Victoria Secret Fashion show and appears in their fashion campaigns regularly.

Way Model Management is a major force in the fashion industry and Le Image Inc is very excited by our new partnership with them. They have an excellent eye for talent and it is always a great experience photographing their models. We can’t wait to continue the amazing work between our NY fashion photographers and the women of Way Models.
