Adriana Lima an Angel for Victoria Secrets

Adriana Francesca Lima Born June 12th 1981 (1 day before me) that makes her a Gemini! another strapping Brazilian Model and a famous Victoria Secrets and modelling the £5,000,000 diamond bra recently on the catwalk and for a series of model shoots.  She has been an Angel since 2000 and a spokes model for Maybeline cosmetics.  From an early age, Adriana finished first place in Ford’s “Supermodel of Brazil” competition, and took second place the following year in the Ford “Supermodel of the World” competition before signing with Elite Model Management. So from early on she was a young lady in great demand.

Lima was born in the northeastern coastal town of Salvador, Bahia, Brazil on June 12, 1981, to a mixed heritage. Her father, from whom she was estranged for most of her life, is Nelson Torres, and her mother, Maria da Graça Lima, was a social worker who gave birth to Lima at the young age of 18. Lima revealed that her father walked out on her family when she was six months old, but has been making recent attempts to reconcile, I bet he has now she is rich and famous – oh t’s the cynic in me.  In late 2007, Lima revealed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame that although she is her mother’s only child, she has two half brothers, aged 7 and 11, from her father’s second marriage.

Modelling Career

Lima never thought about being a model. However, soon after, at the age of 15, she entered and finished in first place in Ford’s “Supermodel of Brazil” model search. She subsequently entered the 1996 Ford “Supermodel of the World” contest and finished in second place.

Three years later, Lima moved to New York and signed with elite Model Management.  After acquiring representation, Lima’s modeling portfolio began to expand by leaps and bounds, and she appeared in numerous international editions of  Vogue and Marie Claire.

As for fashion shows, she has walked the catwalks for big-name designers such as Vera Wang, Christian Lacroix, Girorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren and Valentino, to name but a few.  Lima then became a Guess girl, appearing in their Fall 2000 ad campaign. She also appeared in the book A second decade of Guess? Images.

Lima continued to build upon her portfolio, doing more print work for Maybeline as well as Bebe and Armani and many others. She also appeared on the covers and in the editorials of other fashion magazines such as Elle, GQ, Arena, Cosmopolitan and Esquire, and many more.

As of November 2008, Models.com featured her at No.1 on the list of the hottest models today. She appeared only in shoes, diamonds and gloves for the November 2007 issue of Vanity Fair celebrating 20 years of supermodels with her fellow Angels.  She is the world’s fourth highest paid model as of 2007, so young and so rich.

Victoria’s Secret

Lima is probably best known for her work at Victoria Secret’s.   Her first fashion show for the company came in 1999, and since being contracted as an Angel in 2000, she has appeared on many shows since, opening the show in 2003, 2007, and 2008, in which she also closed the opening segment.   She is also the face of the Miracle Bra which you see on previous posting .  Topping the year off, Lima wore the “Fantasy Bra” for the 2008 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. In early 2008 Lima renewed her contract with Victoria’s Secret.

The Miami fashion show for Victoria Secrets is just a distant memory now and what an affair of pomp, celebrities and fun it was.  One of the stars was Adriana Lima who wore the much coveted Fantasy Bra.

The Fantasy Bra, with over 3500 black diamonds, 117 clear diamonds and 34 rubies, is worth around five million dollars, and will be seen on the VS runway on November 15 at Miami Beach, Florida.

Well girls lets raid the piggy banks and off we go, do you think they do a double GG, may need a few more diamonds for that one.

Not only does she look fab in the Fantasy bra she is clearly the right woman for the job of modelling the Miracle Bra for Victoria’s Secret.  The 27-year-old Brazilian born model sent temperatures soaring as she stripped off to model the company’s push-up bra.

BRAZILIAN beauty ADRIANA LIMA

Aspiring actress Adriana who has had a cameo role in Ugly Betty, is probably best known for her work with the racy lingerie company which launched the careers of models Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks.  Her first fashion show for the company was in 1998 and since being contracted as an Angel in 2000, she has appeared on subsequent shows ever since.  So maybe we shall also see her on the big screen and not just on TV or the Cat Walk. Let’s wait and see.
