The Brazilian stunner has been collecting the vintage toys for years and now has around 60, worth thousands.

The Victoria's Secret Angel admits some of the dolls she has picked up on her travels date back to the early 1960s.

Alessandra used to get embarrassed by her obsession, but she now pretends the dolls are for her seven-year-old daughter, Anja.

She tells, "(I love Barbies), including antique ones from the '50s. I have about 60, although I can now claim I buy them for my daughter!"
