Alessandra Ambrosio has been “reinvented” for an edgy fashion magazine.
The Victoria’s Secret Angel is best known for strutting down the catwalk in tiny sets of underwear for the lingerie brand.
She’s now added another string to her bow by posing for LOVE magazine in some daring shots.
“[Stylist/photographer] Panos Yiapanis has reinvented Alessandra Ambrosio by dyeing her hair black, bleaching her eyebrows and dressing her in covered-up gothic style, even wearing a mask in one picture”, Katie Grand, editor of LOVE, told British newspaper The Telegraph.
“The final irony came when we shot her on Miami Beach – a habitat I’m sure she’s used to, and where no doubt she’s been shot many a time for Victoria’s Secret, but never looking quite like this. Which just goes to show that you can operate well outside your comfort zone even when you’re on familiar territory.”
In one picture, Alessandra, 32, has ditched her long, highlighted hair and instead sports a dark colour with a black cap.
She appears topless on a dark beach, leaning forward to cover her breasts.
In another picture she is far more covered up, swapping lingerie for a long black cloak, thrown over a colourful, beaded dress.
The cover of LOVE’s Spring/Summer 14 edition features Miley Cyrus, whose hair is teased up into a red Mohican.
As well as spending her time modelling, Alessandra has made sure to catch up on some sport.
The fashion star enjoyed the entertainment during the Super Bowl on Sunday.
“Bravo @BrunoMars and @chillipipers !!! Awesome #SuperBowl halftime show!!! (sic),” she tweeted.
