Following a whirlwind trip to Paris for the fashion week, Alessandra Ambrosio jumped right back into her workout routine as soon as she landed back in LA.

On Tuesday, the 40-year-old supermodel showcased her toned body in a gray cropped tank top that put her enviably taut abs on full display.

29 years earlier, she had had plastic surgery at age 11 to improve the appearance of her ears.

The brunette model told Net-A-Porter’s The Edit in 2013 that she went under the knife because she dreamed of being a model. Ear pinning is a type of otoplasty that draws protruding ears closer to the sides of the face. It’s commonly performed on young children.

Unfortunately, the doctor her parents found in her hometown of Erechim, Brazil, was inexperienced and had only carried out the surgery once before.

“I always knew I wanted to be a model so I decided to have my ears pinned back because they stuck out a bit. I found this doctor in my hometown in Brazil who had only done it once before, so I was a guinea pig,” the Brazilian beauty said.

“The first few nights, it felt like someone had cut off my ears. For a year, I had to go back for mini-surgeries.”

“Doctors say they can fix them, but cosmetic surgery freaks me out now,” she added.

Alé paired the sexy bra top with a pair of $108 matching gray Alo Accolade joggers, which she rolled up to her mid-calf.

The Brazilian beauty then pulled her long brunette tresses up into a messy top knot and wore minimal makeup with a pair of Vehla sunglasses covering her eyes.

Adding some style to her athleisure, she accessorized with a beaded necklace, a bracelet, and a silver watch.

Never one to shy away from flaunting her fit model figure, the mom-of-two wore a daring two-piece ensemble from Monot’s Spring/Summer 2021 collection.

She displayed her abs and ample cleavage in a tiny black bralette teamed with a contrasting white floor-length skirt that features a daring hip-high slit.

Continuing with the sultry theme of her look, makeup artist Carolina Gonzalez applied bold winged eyeliner, shimmery eyeshadow, and nude lipstick to Ale’s gorgeous face.

Hairstylist Laura Polko then styled her brunette locks in a chic half-up ‘do with soft waves cascading over her shoulders.

During Paris Fashion Week, Alessandra graced Isabel Marant’s Spring/Summer 2022 runway presentation, wearing, of course, an ensemble from the French fashion designer.

The runway maven wore a black semi-sheer embellished mini dress with puff sleeves and an asymmetrical hem. Giving the look a touch of her signature bohemian style, Alessandra added a boho-inspired belt that helped highlight her trimmed waist.

Making the most of her time in Paris, Alessandra also attended Thierry Mugler’s Couturissime exhibition.

Working her angles, the former Victoria’s Secret Angel posed up a storm on the black carpet and showcased her boobs in a semi-sheer purple mini dress that put her cleavage and slim curves on full display.

Alé paired the sexy lingerie-style frock with matching sheer tights and added a chic blue coat thrown over her shoulders.
