Alessandra Corine Maria Ambrosio (born April 11, 1981) is a Brazilian model.
She was born in Erechim, Brazil, the daughter of Lucilda and Luiz Ambrosio. She has a younger sister named Aline.
She is of Italian and Polish descent. Her paternal grandmother, Joana Eugênia Groch, was an immigrant from Poland, who arrived in Brazil in 1929. She died in 2017, at age 93.
She was always insecure about her large ears, and at the age of 11, she had cosmetic surgery to have her ears pinned back, though two years later she suffered complications. In 2006, she appeared on The Tyra Banks Show, and said that the surgery was a bad experience and has discouraged her from ever getting plastic surgery again.
When she was 12 years old, she partook in modeling classes, and then began modeling for Dilson Stein at age 15. Competing in Brazil's Elite Model Look competition started her modeling career in earnest. Her first notable modeling job was shooting the cover of Brazilian Elle magazine.
She was in a relationship with fellow Brazilian model Marcelo Boldrini from 2001-2005.
She briefly dated magazine editor Steve Allain in 2005.
In 2008 she became engaged to American businessman Jamie Azur. On March 17, 2018, they announced that they had ended their ten-year engagement. They have two children, daughter Anja Louise (born August 24, 2008) and son Noah Phoenix (born May 7, 2012 ).
She dated Italian entrepreneur Nicolo Oddi in 2018.
