Adriana Lima, born on June 12, 1981, is sensational Brazilian supermodel, best known as Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000. She is also one of today’s five top-earning models, who has been continuously appearing in the lists of ‘Sexiest Women’ and ‘Most Beautiful People’
Adriana Lima may be the bold and tempestuous diva showing off her perfect curves and smoldering body in Victoria’s Secret bikinis, but she undoubtedly is the chastest angel of Victoria’s Secret, who waited until age 17 to experience her first kiss to which her partner responded by asking her mother for permission to marry the model. She married in 2009 with former NBA player Marko Jaric and remained a virgin before marriage. She also appeared in 2006 issue of GQ magazine as ‘The World’s most Voluptuous Virgin’.
At the age of 15, Adriana Lima entered 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 City to sign with Elite Model Management and she started appearing in numerous international editions of Vogue and Marie Claire. As a runway model, Adriana has walked the catwalks for top notch designers such as Vera Wang, Christian Lacroix, Emanuel Ungaro, Giorgio Armani, Fendi, Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton and Valentino among others.
Adrian Lima’s most significant new client of 1999 was Victoria’s Secret, who brought her on board that year for their annual fashion show and their summer catalog a year later. The company was so taken with the Brazilian beauty that they named her as one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels, which immediately gave her career a boost in modeling credibility and a big payday to go with it.
In 2002 and 2003, Adriana Lima participated in the shows of Christian Dior, Versace and Alexander McQueen. In 2004, Lima experienced the height of her career in a Victoria’s Secret Super Bowl commercial with Bob Dylan.
Today, this sensational beauty is hugely in demand, first as a Victoria’s Secret Angel and then as the most desirable wife.
