Adriana Lima topless
Adriana Francesca Lima was born on June 12, 1981 in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. She is now best known as one of the faces of Victoria's Secret. To begin her career she, at the age of thirteen, had finished the first place in a Ford Supermodel of Brazil model search before she finally won the second place in the 1996 Ford Supermodel of the World contest. Following her "victory," Adriana soon moved to New York City, and eventually moved on from Ford, signing with Elite Model Management.
Lima continued to build upon her entry, doing more print work (Maybelline, Bebe, Mossimo, BCBG) and gracing the cover and editorials of more high fashion magazines (Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, Vogue). Probably best known for her Victoria’s Secret work and Angel status, Lima first graced the VS runway in 1999, and was the show opener for the 2003 and 2007 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows.
As for fashion shows, the Vogue girl has walked down the runway for the following designers: Cynthia Rowley, Vera Wang, Christian Lacroix, Emanuel Ungaro, Betsey Johnson, Girls Rule, Richard Tyler, Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani, Fendi, Randolph Duke, Ralph Lauren and Valentino.
