Brazilian supermodel and perennial Victoria's Secret Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio, will be an exclusive guest of Lexus at the LANDMARK by Lexus pavilion on Victoria Derby Day, Saturday, 4 November.

Alessandra will be one of many special Lexus guests, where the luxury brand's famous Japanese omotenashi hospitality lays the foundation for amazing experiences.

With its world-class collaborators, LANDMARK by Lexus will take guests on an immersive journey through design, fashion and culinary touch points across three levels, where innovation and sustainability come to the fore under this year's theme, Close to the Source.

2023 marks the 21st year of Lexus partnering with the Victoria Racing Club, including its sixth as Principal Partner with naming rights to the Lexus Melbourne Cup.

The Brazilian-born icon graced the Victoria's Secret runway with a stellar 17-year reign, retiring her wings in 2017. Alessandra's success saw her venturing into new territories, co-founding swimwear brand GAL Floripa in 2019, where her journey has inspired countless female business leaders.

Continuing her career as an international supermodel, Alessandra continues to work the runways and campaigns of some of the world's most renowned brands, such as Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Omega.

Lexus Australia Chief Executive John Pappas said Alessandra embodies the very essence of the Lexus brand, encompassing a refined sense of style, irrepressible elegance and sophistication.

"We are delighted to welcome Alessandra as a special Lexus guest at this year's Victoria Derby Day.

"Alessandra's remarkable journey through the world of international modelling, coupled with her impressive business ventures, serves as a testament to her exceptional talent and dedication."

Alessandra says she looks forward to joining Lexus for Victoria Derby Day, which embraces a black-and-white theme, as part of the wider Melbourne Cup Carnival.

"I've not been to Australia for a long time, so I'm really looking forward to visiting again, especially since I will be a special guest at LANDMARK by Lexus during Derby Day. This is my first time at the races, and I hear it is so much fun, so I can't wait to experience it!"
