How Alessandra Ambrosio’s look-alike daughter Anja, 15, is embracing her mom’s Y2K style: ‘Super cute’

Alessandra Ambrosio’s 15-year-old daughter, Anja, is embracing her mom’s iconic 2000s style.

“I lived through that style so I love it,” Ambrosio, 42, exclusively tells Page Six Style at Ocean Drive’s “Art of the Party” event at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach on Thursday.

“It was very low pants and skirts and showing a lot of your belly and I see my daughter doing that,” the former Victoria’s Secret Angel adds.

The mom of two — who shares Anja and 11-year-old son Noah Phoenix with her ex-partner Jamie Mazur — explained that she, herself, rarely goes for the midriff-bearing look these days but thinks that Anja rocks the throwback fashion.

“I don’t show my belly that much,” Ambrosio says. “But I can see her doing it and I think it’s super cute.”

While Anja has appeared in several photoshoots beside her mom, Ambrosio shared that for now, her eldest child has no aspirations for a career in modeling.

“Not right now,” Ambrosio says when asked if Anja wants to follow in her mom’s catwalking footsteps. “She’s in school. She’s still very focused on that.”

However, Ambrosio noted that she would “of course” support Anja if she chose to pursue modeling.

“Whatever she wants to do,” Ambrosio says. “I would tell her to believe in herself, always.”

Anja often posts photos with her mom on social media and she even posed in Ambrosio’s Jordache campaign when she was just nine years old.

But now that Ambrosio’s kids are growing up, the Brazilian bombshell is learning to navigate raising a teenager.

“When they become teenagers, it’s a whole new world,” she says. “She will be embarrassed by me. She wants to be her own boss, she wants to be heard, she has her own opinions, and she has her taste, so, I have to respect all that and it’s nice.”

As for how she deals with protecting her kids from negativity on social media, Ambrosio says it’s all about just being there for them.

“I think they learn a lot of things online, but I think yeah, as a parent I want to be always there for them and I want to support them,” she says. “I want to teach them the values that I believe, but I’ve been doing that since they were born.”

Ambrosio is in town to launch her second collaboration with PatBO, which she celebrated at a glitzy soirée at the brand’s Miami store opening on Wednesday night.

“I’ve known Patricia [Bonaldi] for a long time and I’ve been a big fan of her brand,” Ambrosio says of the PatBO founder. “So we decided to do the first collaboration last year and it was a super success.”

She continues, “We decided to do the second one a little bit different because the first one was Brazil and this one we wanted something more Miami.”

Ambrosio says the collection has very “vibrant” colors that reflect the essence of the coastal Floridian city.

“You have the cargos, the blue sequins, you have these beautiful big flowers, so there’s a lot of color and energy,” she says.
