Ok ... sometimes you just don't make the cut ... no matter how fabulous you are!
While filming in Prague for the Victoria's Secret Dream Angels commercial (the one promoting the 2011 VS Holiday collection) Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio was captured in some beautiful behind-the-scene photos. From some online sources it seems that the pink lingerie against the bright red background did not match the outdoor footage of the other models featured in the commercial who wore whites, blues and purples. For the sake of overall commercial aesthetics, Ale's footage was cut out.
Hmmmm ... I wonder how that decision affected her paycheck. Seems to not be a set back at all for this lovely goddess since for the 2012 Victoria's Secret fashion show, she received the highest honor of wearing the annual million dollar bra worth 2.5 million dollars! You win some, you lose some.
