But Brazilian beauty Alessandra Ambrosio still had fun as she gave Sao Paulo Fashion Week her golden touch.
Having flown in to attend a party, she was in her home country for barely 24-hours before she headed off back to New York.
But her whistlestop trip was worth it as the Victoria's Secret model proved a show-stopper in a clingy gold-sequin mini dress.

Alessandra's eyes were dramatically made up, and her hair was pulled back in a loose ponytail with tendrils escaping around her jawline.
She wore no visible jewelry, but none was needed with that bright frock.
The mother-of-two resides in Los Angeles with her businessman fiance Jamie Mazur and their daughter Anja, four, and son Noah, six months, but lately seems to be spending a lot of time at the airport.

She wore a loose white top, grey leggings,long grey scarf and white trainers, proving that she can look just as glamorous in casual clothes as she can in formal wear.

Once again, one of the world's sexiest women was seen making the trek through JFK Airport, this time looking a little worse for wear as she pushed her luggage cart.
Perhaps she was sad to have missed out on spending Halloween with her daughter Anja.
It was Alessandra's partner, Jamie, who did the honors taking the little tot trick or treating around their Santa Monica, California neighborhood.
Anja looked adorable as a BRATZ doll as she was squired down the streets by her 38-year-old father.
