Alessandra Ambrosio has confirmed her departure from Victoria's Secret and has penned a heartfelt post on social media about her retirement from the label.
Alessandra Ambrosio ''cannot describe how grateful'' she feels to have worked with Victoria's Secret for almost 20 years.
The 36-year-old supermodel announced she was hanging up her Angel wings after making her seventeenth appearance on the lingerie giant's catwalk earlier this week, and the star has penned a heartfelt message announcing her retirement from the label on social media.
The brunette beauty posted an image of her on the runway during Monday's (20.11.17) extravaganza, which took place in Shanghai, China, on her Instagram account.
She captioned the post: ''Words cannot describe how grateful I am to have been working for this amazing brand that inspires me and women all over the world. In my wildest dreams I would have never imagined doing 17 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows. (sic).''
The Brazilian muse - who has Anja, nine, and Noah, five, with her partner Jamie Mazur - continued to thank ''all [her] Victoria's Secret family'', including Edward Razek - who is the senior creative at the label - for allowing her to make ''unforgettable'' memories.
She wrote: ''Thank you Ed, and all my Victoria's Secret family for making these memories unforgettable. (sic).''
And Alessandra has admitted she felt ''so emotional'' after the showcase when she had to bid farewell to her ''angel sisters''.
She said: ''Last night was so emotional to say goodbye to my #angelsisters but we put on the biggest and best show ever. I could not have done this without all the love and support from my fans. (sic).''
Although the catwalk icon - who was tapped to represent the brand in 2000 - is sad about her departure she is filled with ''great pride'' she has been a part of the ''Victoria's Secret movement''.
She said: ''It gives me great pride to be part the Victoria's Secret movement! I will always be cheering for you! Love you forever (sic).''
