Walk This Way
A lingerie model makes clothes for us all
When we think of Alessandra Ambrosio, we picture her trotting around nearly naked like this. So you might imagine our surprise when we heard the Victoria?s Secret darling was designing a line of clothing...and that it's totally wearable.
The collection is full of flowing pieces that whisper ?I?m comfy? more than shout ?Look out, Brazilian bombshell coming through.? The centerpiece of the line (which is available exclusively at Planet Blue in Santa Monica) is a wide-legged silk jumpsuit ($220) that?s straight out of American Hustle. (One word of advice--its crossover bodice kept falling open on this humble bosom, so we suggest sporting a cami underneath.)
Floor-length dresses like a tie-dye number ($182) and a high-neck silk maxi ($235) are perfect for an outdoor music fest, while a fringed white poncho ($158) is lightweight enough to wear as a beach cover-up.
While Ambrosio?s not without a misstep in her inaugural collection (just looking at these shorts makes us uncomfortable), we?re excited to ease into warm weather with her gear.
