Adriana Lima is a model and actress who was born in 1981, in Brazil. She is known around the
world because of her job as a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Adriana Lima has admitted in several interviews she was discovered as model thanks to a
friend who asked her to go with her to a casting. There, all of a sudden, judges proposed her to
take part in a contest called Supermodel of Brazil, what she finally won. And in 1996, she
participated in the global version of the previous contest, being runner-up. Some years later,
she decided to move into New York to become a professional model. Her first jobs were in

has also been in charge of open this show four times.
She has been chosen twice to wear the Fantasy Bra, which is a bejewelled bra. First time was
