Aug 10 (IBNS) Victoria’s Secret will have to do away with her angel Adriana Lima
: the Brazilian beauty is expecting her first baby and likes to be out of shooting for a while.
These topless ads demonstrate her worth before the underwear giant.
Adriana Lima announced on her MySpace blog that the rumors are indeed true - she’s a married lady. She ’secretly’ wed NBA star Marko Jaric on Valentine’s Day in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Adriana Francesca Lima (born June 12, 1981) is a Brazilian model best known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000 and a spokesmodel for Maybelline cosmetics from 2003 to 2009. At age 15, Lima finished first place in Ford’s “Supermodel of Brazil” competition and took second place the following year in the Ford “Supermodel of the World” competition before signing with Elite Model Management in New York City.
Lima never thought about being a model, although she had won many beauty pageants in elementary school.
However, she had a friend at school who wanted to enter a modeling contest and didn’t want to enter alone, so Lima entered with her. Both sent in pictures, and the contest sponsor soon asked Lima to come out for the competition.
Soon after, at the age of 15, she entered and finished in first place in Ford’s “Supermodel of Brazil” model search. She subsequently entered the 1996 Ford “Supermodel of the World” contest and finished in second place.
