Born in Brazil, Adriana Lima first appeared to snag the second place for the Ford Supermodel of the World competition in 1996 when at only 13 years old. That came after she won the Ford Supermodel of Brazil contest. It is not surprising that at a young age, the supermodel gained quite a lot of praise for her natural good looks. She’s got a mixed lineage of Brazilian, Japanese, French, Portuguese, Caribbean, and African after all.
When she turned 16, Adriana Lima left Brazil to pursue her modeling career in New York. She signed with Elite Model Management, which then gained her a campaign for the clothing line of Anna Molinari, a famous fashion designer.
The supermodel debuted in a magazine cover for the September 1998 issue of Brazil’s Marie Claire. She also graced the cover of Italian Vogue for its 20th Anniversary issue in September 2000, then followed that with a cover in Vogue Brazil the next month.
Adriana Lima’s first massive appearance was for Guess in 2000, where she took part in the brand’s fall ad campaign.
In her runway modeling career, Andriana Lima walked the catwalk for various designers over the years. Some of her notable runway appearances include designers and fashion brands such as Valentino, Givenchy, Giorgio Armani, Balmain, Vera Wang, Versace, Bottega Veneta, Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui, Louis Vuitton, Paco Rabanne, Marc Jacobs, and many others.
The supermodel also continued to build up her modeling portfolio. She became the spokesmodel for Maybelline and did tons of print work for the brand from 2003 to 2009. She also worked with ad campaigns for Swatch and other fashion brands such as Elie Saab, Jason Wu, MCBG, Miu Miu, Bulgari, H&M, Intimissimi, Prada, Colcci, Versace, Schiaparelli, Blumarine, Balmain, and Givenchy, among others.
Adriana Lima also appeared in countless magazine covers, including in ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, Arena, V, French Revue des Modes, Cosmopolitan, and Grazia. She also graced the April 2006 issue cover for GQ magazine. It became the best-selling one for the publication that year.
In 2003, Maxim also named the supermodel as part of their Hot 100 list in 2003, so did Ask Men that same year. The following year, Ask Men also ranked her as the top in their Most Desirable Women list.
Over the years, Adriana Lima graced the runway and magazine covers that highlight her ass and boobs, a sexy figure with undeniable beauty and charm.
However, the supermodel is most popular for being a Victoria’s Secret Angel. At 17 years old, she walked the runway of Victoria’s Secret. The following year, she got the ever-elusive contract from the brand, and she graced the runway on subsequent shows ever since, until she retired in 2018.
