Alessandra Ambrosio puts her statuesque figure on display in a brown string bikini as she frolics in the ocean water and plays beach volleyball in Santa Monica
Alessandra Ambrosio has been known to show off her competitive side and supermodel figure during a game of beach volleyball.
And on Sunday the Brazilian beauty, 39, was back at it again when she took to the sands of Santa Monica, where she hooked up with a bunch of pals just feet away from the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean.
Her Sunday funday also included some time frolicking in the water, lounging on a towel as she checked her phone messages, a brief stop at a store to pick up some birthday party supplies, and a morning yoga session.
