Coachella is really bringing the style today – complete with runway models.
Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio returned for a second day to the Californian festival – and it seems that she’s a fan of hot pants, because she’s rocking her second pair in two days. The model, 35 – who’s a mum of two – looked incredible at the festival in a pair of cut-off denim shorts and a black body, with boots and a sweatshirt tied around her waist.
Yesterday Alessandra wore suede shorts – and we can’t wait to see what she’ll be wearing next.
The model recently spoke about losing her baby weight in time for the Victoria's Secret runway show.
The stunning Angel - who was made a spokesmodel for the lingerie brand's PINK line in 2004 - has opened up about her efforts to get back in pre-pregnancy shape after the birth of her daughter Anja in 2008.
Speaking to Net-A-Porter's The Edit, she said: "Your body will never go back to exactly what it was before pregnancy, whatever people tell you. But I think I have a better body now than before I had kids. Not that it was easy getting back into shape post-pregnancy; after having Anja I only had three months to lose all the weight [before doing the 2008 Victoria's Secret runway show] and I was on this 1,200-calorie-a-day meal-delivery service that I hated.
I couldn't do that again."

"It started when I first began making my own money at 15," she explained.
