For the soirée, the Brazilian-born beauty was dressed in a sleeveless black wide-leg jumpsuit with gold chains as straps.

The hardware was also incorporated into the bodice of the outfit, wrapping around her neck in a halter style and continuing down to her waist to form a belt-like design.

Alessandra wore open-toed heels that showcased her shiny dark pedicure. Her nails were painted in an abstract red pattern.

The fashionista put a gold bracelet on each of her wrists and rocked a pair of thick gold hoops in her ears.

Ambrosio’s famous face was carefully made up by makeup artist Leah Darcy, who blushed her cheeks and created a sexy cat eye effect with lashes and liner.

Her striking beauty was meticulously accentuated and finished with a glossy swipe of a natural-toned lip stain.
