Alessandra Ambrosio is flying away from her Victoria's Secret family. After 17 years, the supermodel spread her Angel wings for the last time on Monday, November 20, at the lingerie brand’s 2017 show in Shanghai. The mom-of-two posted a heartfelt message after the show on Instagram writing in part: "Last night was so emotional to say goodbye to my #angel sisters but we put on the biggest and best show ever. I could not have done this without all the love and support from my fans. It gives me great pride to be part the Victoria’s Secret movement! I will always be cheering for you! Love you forever."
To commemorate the special occasion, the 36-year-old brought her mini-me daughter Anja with Jamie Mazur to Shanghai to witness her final walk down the VS runway. Prior to touching down in China, Alessandra posted a photo of herself and her nine-year-old in a plane en route to Asia. Alongside the picture she penned, “Traveling with my favorite angel .... 🧚🏻♀️💖✈️ #vsfashionshow #shanghai.”
