Brazilian Supermodel Adriana Lima Gets Emotional During Final Strut Down Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Runway
Prior to last night’s (Nov. 8) Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, hosted in New York, Brazilian bombshell and VS Angel Adriana Lima announced that it’d be her final catwalk, and that she’s hanging up her wings after almost 20 years with the lingerie brand.
Additionally, ahead of the show, Lima took to Instagram to share on her departure. She said, “Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the ❤️ to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana 💖.”
While she made her #VSFS debut in 1999 at 18-years-old, the 37-year-old supermodel strutted her stuff one last time at last night’s show, which will air on December 2. Also, she told PEOPLE, “I think this year is going to be the highlight of my career. This has been my 18th fashion show and I am still as excited as I was from the first day. I always love to be on runways and being part of the Victoria’s Secret show. It my favorite to do.”
In addition to caring for her two children, Lima also revealed, “I’m looking forward to support women and being connected to different projects which support women around the world. That like my future from now on but I am still happy that I am part of Victoria’s Secret this year. You guys are going to love this year’s show. To me it is definitely going be very special.”
