Alessandra Ambrosio is stepping off the runway — and into designing!

The Victoria's Secret model is proving she's more than just a pretty face with her very own fashion line. Teaming up with Cherokee, the 31-year-old mom of two will debut her new lifestyle brand, Alé by Alessandra, in Spring 2014.

"I still plan on modeling lingerie, but at the same time, this is a business transition that I plan to have around for a long time," the Brazilian beauty shares in a new interview with WWD. "This is not a hobby for me. I've been a fashion model for 15 years and designing is just an extension of my career."

The line will start off with apparel and move on to other categories, including jewelry, accessories, swimwear and even fragrance.

So what's her inspiration? Alessandra's taking her Brazilian roots and mixing it with influence from her world travels.

And she's not the first Angel to give designing a go. Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks have all come before her. Perhaps she's reached out to one of them for some advice?

Not that she needs it. Considering her designs will be influenced by her personal style, we think she'll have a winning line on her hands!

Plus, who wouldn't want to dress like an Angel?
