For 17 years, Alessandra Ambrosio has inspired people world wide by strutting down the Victoria Secret Runway and making a name for herself, but on Monday night she made an announcement on her Instagram page that would require her to hang up her wings and bid  farewell.

 

“Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have been working for this amazing brand that inspires me and women all over the world,” wrote Ambrosio. “Last night was so emotional to say goodbye to my #angel sisters but we put on the biggest and best show ever.” She ended the post with, “It gives me great pride to be part the Victoria’s Secret movement! I will always be cheering for you! Love you forever ❤️.”

Ambrosio had countless of memories during her career, such as the time when she strut around wearing 30 pound wings, or when she walked the show while two months pregnant in 2011 and even the iconic moment when she was assigned to wearing the million dollar fantasy bra.

The model walked the runway sporting two head-turning outfits, one being especially important to her.

“I have this amazing Balmain look. And I love Olivier. I’m good friends with him. I was very happy when I heard Balmain and Victoria’s Secret were doing a collaboration,” she shared. “I’m wearing this amazing punk rock lingerie look. Then I have a gorgeous outfit, very colorful for my second look.”

Before closing out the show, she blew kisses to the camera’s, sharing a moment with the world that was both bittersweet and emotional.
