There was no shortage of risque outfits and outrageous ensembles at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. When it comes to the VMAs, anything goes, which gave us a host of outfits to enjoy. The sheer trend was alive and well courtesy of Demi Lovato and Vanessa Hudgens. Millie Bobby Brown opted for a quirky yet darkly romantic ensemble, while Yara Shahidi just couldn’t seem to decide on a look — so she went for two of them.
Alessandra Ambrosio is another red carpet pro who turned heads at this year’s star-studded awards ceremony. Alessandra, known for her dangerously sexy red carpet looks, decided to switch it up in a black-and-white Balmain Resort 2018 ensemble. This look was far more covered up than we’re used to seeing from the Victoria’s Secret Angel. Nevertheless, she looked stunning, and she totally rocked this look.
The 36-year-old supermodel wore a collared mini dress with long sleeves, cut-out details, sheer panels and intricate embroidery. She squeezed her mile-long legs into a pair of statement boots that extended up to her thighs. These leather shoes feature a lace-up style, a peep-toe silhouette and a laser-cut pattern. Minimal makeup and a high ponytail ensured that the focus would be on Alessandra’s eye-catching outfit.

There is no doubt that Alessandra can pull off any look — she can easily go from casual-cool to sultry elegance without batting an eyelash.
Case in point, Alessandra looked sporty chic just the day before the VMAs. Her model-off-duty look consisted of a Cotton On muscle tank, tiny black shorts and a sweatshirt tied around her waist. Alessandra added a bit of sparkle to her casual look with Anita Ko earrings, a Jacquie Aiche diamond necklace, a Cartier bracelet and a Rolex watch. She completed her look with the Coach “Swagger” shoulder bag and crisp white Nike “Juvenate” sneakers.

A few days before that, Alessandra looked utterly chic in a Dhela Spring 2017 two-piece ensemble. She went out for lunch at The Ivy in a cropped off-the-shoulder top and matching high-waisted maxi skirt. Alessandra accessorized with an assortment of Jacquie Aiche necklaces, Alexis Bittar earrings, a Cartier bracelet and a Rolex watch. She rounded out her look with the Chloe “Drew” shoulder bag and a pair of brown suede sandals.
The Brazilian stunner’s Gianvito Rossi sandals feature criss-cross straps and block heels. They were the perfect complement to Alessandra’s effortlessly sophisticated summer look.
