Alessandra Ambrosio braves the wintry beach for bikini photo shoot
At a chilly 13C and with rain in the air, it was a day for wrapping up in warm jackets.
But like a true professional Alessandra Ambrosio showed no sign of a chill as she stripped to her skimpy bikini on Venice Beach on Wednesday.
The Victoria’s Secret model posed provocatively in a multi-coloured halter neck underwire top which matched her tiny briefs.

She teamed the ensemble with only a few thin bracelets and a necklace, ensuring her bronzed skin was showed off as much as possible.
The barefoot beauty, 31, traipsed across the golden sediment, her highlighted brunette hair left free for her to tousle in wind.
Onlookers would be surprised to know she is the mother of two children – Anja, four, and Noah, 10 months, with fiancé Jamie Mazur – as her
flat stomach showed no signs of having given birth last year.

Despite the weather she was able to keep up an enthusiastic expression on as she took part in a photoshoot with photographer Ben Watts.
He may have needed to use a filter effect on the snaps to make the final images appear warmer that reality for the promotional pictures.
The snapper also shared some shots of her full-clothed as they explored the surrounding coastal area.

Her day probably began a temperature of around ten
degrees lower though as she tweeted about being on her way to their location at the crack of dawn.
Posting a picture as she drove along the palm tree-lined Santa Monica pier side on her way
to the job, the sun had just about risen into the sky.
She tweeted: ‘Early morning wake up call, nice #sky by the #beach !! #california #driving.’

Alessandra was earlier seen modelling four different outfits, including a baggy grey knotted T-shirt, which was paired with a stretchy yellow skirt and dove grey sandals.
In another ensemble, the star’s yellow lace bralet was seen poking out from the low-cut sides of her sleeveless white hoodie.
Alessandra also sported a pair of black and blue cropped leggings and white tennis shoes.

She was seen listening to music with headphones in her ears as the crew set up the next shot, for which the mother-of-two skipped across the street.
The gorgeous brunette then changed into a long blue animal print top and grey calf length leggings, along with white T-strap sandals.
She was spotted posing beside a lime green bicycle but decided to wheel it rather than take it for a spin.
