One of the most recognized Victoria’s Secret Angels, Adriana Lima, is no stranger to the limelight. The Brazilian supermodel has been stealing the spotlight for over 15 years and shows no signs of slowing down.
Ford’s “Supermodel of Brazil” contest gave Lima her start at the tender age of 15. Upon signing with Elite Model Management Lima relocated to New York and found ample work. Among her long-term commitments is her contract with Maybelline, a company that she represented for six years.
Besides being walking on international fashion runways, Lima has proven to be versatile enough to represent a myriad of companies. Lima has been the face of campaigns and ads for companies like Swatch, Desigual, and Doritos. Additionally, Lima has tried her hand at acting, taking small roles on TV series.
Furthermore, Lima has worked and done cover shoots for magazines like internationally recognized Vogue magazine. Lima has been recognized numerous times by Forbes, being placed at the top of the best-paid and most powerful lists.
Boxing is among Lima’s hobbies; the supermodel has been boxing for years, no doubt to help her maintain her famous physique. Her friends and family have affectionately nicknamed her “Limabean” and she is famously a devout Catholic, attending mass every Sunday.
