Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio made for a steamy day 19 of Love magazine’s advent calendar. The 35-year-old stripped down to just a pair of panties as she teased her way through the minute-long video. It’s appropriately titled “La Voisine,” which means “the neighbor” as she puts on a show for a strange man across the way.
The video, which is directed by Phil Poynter, begins with Alessandra stepping onto an apartment balcony in a sweater, panties, and thigh-high stockings. She proceeds to remove twist and twirl her way around as her clothes slowly disappear. All the while, a mysterious man in an adjacent apartment starts to take photos of her stripping down. Towards the end, Alessandra is clad in a matching lacy bra and panty set as she flaunts around in black high heels. She ends the video topless and walking away as she tugs on her panties.
Love magazine is known for its racy photo shoots and risqué advent calendar, and Alessandra’s clip fits the mold. Fans took to the magazine’s Instagram account to share their opinions on the popular model’s performance. One Instagram user said the video literally made their day, while another said the video is one of the best yet.
“amazing, one of the bests….hope one with adriana lima.”
They mentioned wanting to see model Adriana Lima appear in the calendar as well, and it’s not a far-fetched idea as other Victoria’s Secret models, such as Taylor Hill and Stella Maxwell, have appeared in the calendar. However, not all the women who pose for the magazine’s calendar are models. Singer Ciara, Kim Kardashian, and Rita Ora have all appeared in the calendar as well.
Maxim covered Alessandra’s performance calling it a “seductive striptease.”
“Alessandra performs a seductive nighttime striptease on a Parisian balcony, all the while a very lucky neighbor looks on snapping photographs.”
Perez Hilton also weighed in on Ambrosio’s performance, saying it’s “not so weird” in comparison to Love‘s previous days.
“LOVE’s advent calendar videos have been all over the place lately, but this one featuring Alessandra Ambrosio goes back to basics!”
Hilton is referring to advent days by celebrities such as Ciara and model Alexa Chung, both of whom performed in strange videos. Ciara danced her way from a forest background to unicorns and a piano-playing cat.
While Ciara’s video did seem a little out of place in the calendar, it was not nearly as awkward to watch as Alexa’s. Fans took to Instagram to share their feelings on day 17, which was modeled by Alexa. They said it was cringe-worthy and awkward to watch in the comments of Love‘s Instagram post.
“Eww….this is so awkward like do I even need to say it.”
However, the awkward videos are outweighed by the racy ones as fans eagerly check back to see who is starring in the next video. So far, it seems viewers are eagerly anticipating Gigi Hadid’s appearance as her younger sister started off the calendar on day one.
Bella Hadid can be seen in aerobics gear as she “works out” in her sexy video. Love is sure to keep things interesting as it changes up each day with themes from the Northern Lights to glow sticks as seen in Joan Smalls’ day 20 video. However, Alessandra’s sexy shoot has made more headlines as the veteran model teased viewers and the camera with her risqué moves.
It seems the calendar has yet taken another turn as it tells a short —and sexy— story with Alessandra’s video.
