Make-up free model Alessandra Ambrosio cuts a laid back figure in large sunhat and flared jeans as she prepares to board plane
She's one of the world's most glamorous models after flaunting her enviable body on the catwalk as a Victoria's Secret angel.
Alessandra Ambrosio, 34, showed she is a natural beauty when she arrived at Los Angeles airport on Wednesday without make-up and dressed in casual attire.
She covered up in a white waterfall cardigan and flared jeans as she made her way through passport control.
The mother-of-two still looked tall despite wearing a pair of flat suede shoes with her airport attire.
Her links to the fashion industry were clear to see as she wheeled a Louis Vuitton monogrammed suitcase behind her.
The model recently shared a behind-the-scenes shot of an upcoming Victoria's Secret campaign, as she gave fans a glimpse of what she's been up to with a Twitter picture taken in Rome.
Alessandra captioned the photo 'It's coming,' as she built excitement around the latest venture from the angels.
She was pictured in the middle of the shot wearing a sexy pink gown, as she stood between her fellow blonde models.
But Victoria's Secret isn't the only clothing collection that Alessandra will be modelling at the moment, as she establishes her business acumen with swimsuit line, Ale by Alessandra.
She also wrote: 'Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen. #alebyalessandraswim #alehatscollection.'
Alessandra was later seen going up the escalators at the airport wearing a big cream sunhat and leather tote bag.
X Factor hopeful who sang at Mark Wright's wedding 'dumped from show' DESPITE four yeses from judges
tunning Holly Brewer wowed the judges but didn't make it to bootcamp.
An X Factor hopeful who sang at Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan's wedding was left heartbroken after being dumped from bootcamp - despite sailing through the first round with FOUR yeses.
Singer Holly Brewer impressed the panel when she sang at the London auditions, and was given four yeses - and what she assumed was a pass through to the next round.
However, the stunning hopeful - who performed at the showbiz couple's wedding earlier this year - received a call over the weekend to inform her that she had been axed as part of a pre-bootcamp cull just days before the next stage began.
Speaking exclusively to Mirror TV, she said: "I was absolutely delighted at the audition to get amazing feedback from the judges and 4 yeses, but then was really gutted to get a phone call on Saturday to say that the decision is now a no and I won't be going through to Bootcamp."
The blonde songstress had previously been tipped for X Factor glory following her audition.
According to the Daily Star, she impressed judges Simon Cowell, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora after revealing her 'claim to fame'.
Talking about Mark and Michelle's wedding, she said: "Someone who is friends with Mark and Michelle mentioned me to them. Next thing, I got a call out of the blue to sing for them."
Holly is one of many contestants who were given four yeses by the panel, butsuffered the heartbreak of being cut before bootcamp got underway.
A hopeful from the Manchester auditions revealed he had been given a letter about progressing to bootcamp - but his dream quickly turned to disappointment.
Jamie Lee Morley claimed he was told to still travel down from Edinburgh to London over the weekend, despite uncertainty surrounding the next stage of the talent show.
However, on Saturday he too was one of the unfortunate singers axed from the competition following high hopes for his chances.
He told us: "I felt crushed, used and very angry as I came to London with only a 1 way ticket! They explained there was a cut and that I was one of the unsuccessful people. I was disgusted by how they had treated me!"
An X Factor spokeswoman has explained that the decision to cut contestants before bootcamp was "kinder and fairer" than an immediately "cull" on arrival, and insisted all hopefuls were contacted and told not to book travel until they were informed whether their place was secure.
In a statement to Mirror TV over the weekend, she said: "Owing to a very high standard of talent during this year’s X Factor arena auditions, not all successful singers will be offered a place at Bootcamp.
"All singers have been made aware of this and are being told this weekend whether or not they will be going through to Bootcamp, after the judges have reviewed their auditions."

But a conveyor belt of brides was not abnormal at St Margaret’s Church in Barking in 1955.
One couple who wed on that July 23 were Marion and Nigel Panzetta.
They said cars circulated as brides waited for their slot to jump out and marry while wedding vehicles were double booked with only limited numbers to go around.
“As soon as one bride walked out of the church another bride walked in – all married by the same priest,” recalled Marion.
“I remember seeing bridesmaids in multicoloured dresses everywhere. Our car had been taken by another bride after I left the church – it was chaotic.”
Marion, who lived in Wilmington Gardens, Barking, until she married, said the date was sought-after because the Ford factory closed for a fortnight the previous day. As workers only had those two weeks of holiday, everyone wanted to get married on that date.
“It meant they had time for a honeymoon straight afterwards before they went back to work,” Marion explained.
“And schools had just split up for summer holidays too.”
Marion, now 83, had been teaching at Manor Infants School, Barking, for three years and was surprised to see pupils from her class appear on the day.
Tradition had it the bride and groom would leave their wedding halfway through the celebrations, she explained.
“You’d go off on your honeymoon in your going away outfit and your guests would carry on partying without you – there was never an evening celebration like there is today.”
The pair’s reception was held at the Plough pub in Ilford Lane.
A speedy photographer developed his snaps immediately and brought them back for guests to choose which copies they wanted there and then.
For their honeymoon the newlyweds visited the New Forest to stay in Nigel’s uncle’s house while he was away.
To earn their keep they were instructed to eat the strawberries and raspberries growing in the garden and mow the lawns.
“I changed out of my wedding dress and into my going away outfit, which was a dark turquoise linen dress and jacket and a lace hat,” Marion added.
“We bought a 1929 Morris Minor before we were married and it cost £5 second hand. We travelled to our honeymoon in it but it broke down halfway to the New Forest.”
The couple had met two years earlier at a train station during a group holiday in the Norfolk Broads.
Despite not knowing anybody, Marion had agreed to go on the holiday with a colleague and Nigel was also on the trip.
The group greeted him as he got off a train and Marion turned to her colleague and said: “That one’s for me.”
Sixty-two years on they plan to revisit St Margaret’s for their diamond celebration.
But to mark the actual day on Thursday they invited friends and former bridesmaids over for an unlikely choice of cuisine.
“We’re having KFC because I didn’t fancy cooking,” Marion explained.
“It’s not really relevant to our wedding, although we did have chicken at our wedding breakfast I suppose.
“We just haven’t had a KFC for ages and fancied it.”
