Adriana Lima burst onto the modeling scene at a young age when she won first place in Ford’s “Supermodel of Brazil” contest at 15. Three years later, she signed with Elite Model Management, moved to NYC, and her career took off. She has walked the runway for top designers that include Giorgio Armani, Fendi, Ralph Lauren, Vera Wang, Valentino and many others.
Adriana became a GUESS? girl in 2000 and then began to do print work for Maybelline a few years later. She has been a spokesmodel for the cosmetics company since 2003. She has appeared on the cover of top magazines from ELLE and Cosmo to Esquire and GQ. You probably know her best for her work with Victoria’s Secret. The beautiful Brazilian has been working for the company since 1999 and became an Angel in 2000. Her solo Victoria’s Secret Super Bowl XLII ad was the single most-seen ad from the big game with over 103.7 million viewers. She has also dabbled in acting, appearing in several films and on the TV show Ugly Betty last year.
Adriana Lima is now officially a MILF. She gave birth to her first child with husband Marko Jaric (basketball player) on November 15, 2009. Mother and daughter, Valentina Lima Jaric, are said to be doing well. I’m sure Adriana will be back on the runway strutting her stuff soon.
