A lithe brunette with a signature navel piercing, Alessandra Ambrosio was one of the many Brazilian models to hit it big internationally in the late 1990s. She began taking modelling classes at age 14, was a finalist in the Elite Look of the Year competition in 1996, and went from there to advertisements for Guess clothing (the same line which helped launch the careers of Anna Nicole Smith and Laetitia Casta). She became one of the Victoria's Secret lingerie "angels" and has also appeared in ads for Revlon, Giorgio Armani and many other companies. She made a very brief appearance as "Tennis Girl" in the 2007 James Bond film Casino Royale (starring Daniel Craig).
