The blue/gray-eyed Brazilian beauty can attribute her exotic good looks to her
French, Portuguese, Native-American, and Caribbean heritage. Her climb from
obscurity to glam girl occurred after placing second in the Ford Supermodel of
the World Contest at the age of 13. Three years later, she headed to one of the
fashion centers of the world, New York, and signed with Elite Model Management.
Once there, her modeling portfolio began to expand exponentially, after
appearing in Vogue (Italy) in 1997, as well as Vogue (UK), I-D (UK), Marie
Claire (Brazil), and Vogue (Italy) in 1998. Adriana also appeared in Vogue
(U.S., Germany, UK) and Marie Claire (Italy) in 1999.
