Adriana Lima first graced the Victoria’s Secret runway in 1999 at age 18, alongside some of the world’s biggest supermodels: Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum, and Stephanie Seymour. Ever since, Lima has been a staple at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, with 2013 marking her 13th stroll down the lingerie giant’s runway. Born in Brazil in 1981, she quickly rose to supermodel fame, winning Ford’s Supermodel of Brazil contest and coming in second place in Ford’s Supermodel of the World search, both at the tender age of 15. At 18, Lima relocated to New York City, where she signed with Elite Model Management and began a career working for some of the world’s biggest fashion names, including Valentino, Givenchy, Donna Karan, and Giorgio Armani. Despite her array of high fashion work, Lima is best known for her Victoria’s Secret work—she’s been an Angel since 2000, opened the Fashion Show five times, and worn the coveted Fantasy Bra twice. As the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show approaches its 18th year, the supermodel looks back on her favorite runway looks.
