Alessandra Ambrosio is set to appear in her last ever Victoria's Secret fashion show this year.

The 36-year-old supermodel was tapped to represent the brand in 2000, but after having represented the fashion house for almost 20 years the brunette beauty will be hanging up her angel wings after she graces the runway in this year's showcase, which will take place in Shanghai, China, and will be aired on November 28,

And the catwalk icon has decided to bow out of working with the fashion house in future because she wants to spend more quality time with her children Anja, nine, and Noah, five, 'Entertainment Tonight' has reported.

Alessandra has forged a great legacy with the lingerie giant, which saw her grace the runway for the label in 2005, and adorn two Fantasy Bras in 2012 and 2014, which marks the first ever time a model has donned the highly coveted garment more than once in the brand's entire history.

However, the Brazilian star has made it known she doesn't want to be in the fashion business ''forever'', and she felt it was inevitable she would have to stop modelling for Victoria's Secret later down the line.

Speaking previously about her career, she said: ''I feel the opposite of her. I don't want to go on forever. I know there comes a time that I'll have to hang up my wings, and I'm OK with that. Everyone moves on eventually.''

Although this month's showcase will be Alessandra's last time in the highly anticipated catwalk show, she has been counting down the days until she slips into a raunchy underwear set.

The style muse has shared a string of images of her in the run up to the annual show, including throwback pictures to her sporting black angel wings and matching underwear from a previous show, as well as her en route to china, and her training with fellow models on her Instagram account.
