Alessandra Ambrosio says her daughter is a ''little fashionista''.

The Victoria's Secret Angel's five-year-old daughter Anja - who she has with businessman Jamie Mazur - is already following in her footsteps and loves getting dressed up in her mother's clothes.

She gushed: ''My daughter, she loves fashion. She's a little fashionista. She has her own personality and style, and she loves playing with mommy's clothes!''

Alessandra says her family, which also includes 22-month-old son Noah, inspired her to create her new casual clothing line, Ále by Alessandra, in keeping with her own bohemian style.

The collection features loose fabrics, effortless crop tops and fashionable beach cover-ups, which the brunette feels are perfect for the working mother.

She added in an interview with E! News: ''As a working mom, I need something that will go from day to night and something that you really don't need to think too much. I wanted to do something easy for women.''

Alessandra has always wanted to design her own range and was motivated by her desire to help make women feel good.

The 32-year-old star said: ''I love fashion. It's in my blood. I always wanted to create my own brand... I wanted to do something that would make women feel good.''

Alé by Alessandra launches on March 17 exclusively at Planet Blue.
