Fans can strut their stuff while Victoria Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio offers her tips, tricks, and guidance on how to slay the runway. The bilingual model offers her advice in both English and her native Portuguese. When asked about the experience, Ambrosio said “It’s an incredible honor to have Madame Tussauds create a wax figure of me. I’m thrilled to share my signature walk and runway tips with guests. I hope they’re up for the challenge!” All participants receive a video copy of their runway walk and are encouraged to share their videos on social media with the hashtag #slaytherunway.
This is Ambrosio's second wax figure created by the artists at Madame Tussauds. Her first figure can be found at the Shanghai location. Guests can take pictures with her statue as well as other supermodels like Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, and Kendall Jenner, and fashion icon and mogul Anna Wintour.
Alessandra Ambrosio is a Brazilian supermodel, tv host, mother of two, and designer. In 2006, Ambrosio was chosen as the first spokesmodel for Victoria Secret's PINK line. Ambrosio has been a guest judge on Project Runway Season 2 and has had a cameo on HBO's Entourage. Inspired by her boho chic-personal style—with the beach and Coachella as inspirations—Ambrosio also has launched her own clothing line "Ale by Alessandra Ambrosio."
