Adriana Lima Hangs Up Her Wings

Adriana Lima Hangs Up Her Wings

Supermodel Adriana Lima beautifully retired from Victoria's during the 2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. At the time that the show aired, I had no idea that Victoria's Secret would stop the annual lingerie runway show altogether as announced in 2019. Perhaps Adriana Lima just had a very strong instinct about the future of Victoria's Secret or perhaps she had some inside information. Either way, she elegantly made a fabulous exit from Victoria's Secret as she retired from the mega-lingerie giant.

No other model in the history of Victoria's Secret has opened and closed more Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows than Adriana Lima. For 19 consecutive years she has been the most admired model in the famous brand's annual show not just because of her Brazilian goddess physical beauty, but because of her personality that just seems to reach out to her fans embracing each and every one of them with love, acceptance and now empowerment. She has made some recent public statements as a believer in female empowerment as she moves forward with her modeling career with more of a focus on this specific meaningful purpose.

Although Adriana Lima walked in a segment just to honor her VS Angel retirement after two decades of dedicated ambassadorship, her final runway walk in a traditional segment is perhaps more noteworthy. Her hair in a new mid-length cut is quite flattering for this matured model. The Brazilian goddess wears a sexy, black lace teddy with crescent moon-shaped wings which seemed well matched to the music and the moment. We all love her spunky personality that always shines through especially when she is grooving to the beat on the runway.
