Alessandra Ambrosio shows her Melissa Love

Don’t be fooled by a pretty face. Along with Victoria's Secret catwalk vixen and mum-to-be (for the second time), Alessandra Ambrosio can now add a credit as footwear designer to her CV.

The supermodel has teamed up with Melissa, the Brazilian shoe brand, to create an range of plastic footwear. ‘It’s a brand I’ve known since I’ve existed,’ Ambrosio said. ‘It makes total sense to have this collaboration.’

Ambrosio’s two designs are the Melissa Incense Glitter (a delicate ‘50s-style pump) and Melissa Divine, a pretty, classic ballet flat.

‘One style is my glam red carpet look, with a high heel in two shades of glitter,’ Ambrosio told us, ‘and the second style is my day look, a ballerina, sweet and feminine, in black, silver and two nudes, my favourite colour.’


Both are part of the brand’s newly launched ‘Melissa Loves’ range, through which celebrities who love the brand can express that admiration through shoe designs.
