Adriana Lima Brief History

Adriana Lima is an angel, quite literally. Well, a Victoria Secret Angel that is. She’s both a model and actress and was with them for a span of almost 20 years.

This supermodel didn’t just flaunt her beauty for Victoria Secret, as she was also a spokesmodel for Maybelline. This Brazilian model not only won Ford’s modeling contest, she was also signed on by Elite out of NYC.

The 5’10” model grew to become a coveted brand ambassador. She took on the role for many companies throughout her career. She hadn’t intended on becoming a model but fell into it accidentally. She was supporting a friend, but it ended up launching her career.

With bit parts or walk-ons, usually playing herself as a Victoria Secret angel, she continued to pop-up on our televisions. She then landed a role on Ugly Betty. She also helped create a produce a show for Lifetime called American Beauty Stars.

She is a devout Catholic and does charitable work with orphanages. While we commend her work with children, her diet routine before a runway show led to criticism as she explained she only has liquids for a week and a half to drop quick weight.
