Adriana Francesca Lima is not just another pretty girl, whose height or weight is appropriate under the model standards. She’s a sexy and charismatic top model, which became the example for many to follow. Her really nice eyes captured not only fans, but also fashion designers and publishers around the world. Today Adriana is an angel the most eminent brand “Victoria’s Secret” and a mother of two children.
The future angel was born in the Brazilian city Salvador. The education gave her only mother because her father left the family when she was 6 months old. But this did not prevent mother to raise Adriana as a purposeful and self-confident person.
Lima’s parents were social workers and could not help the model to get into the fashion world, so it’s true to say that Adriana is a world-famous model thanks to her natural resources and a persevering character.
The modelling career began while Adriana shopping at the Mall, she was spotted by a scout. After personal communication she gave him a positive response to the proposal to try herself in the industry.
Within 2 years Adriana won the beauty contest “Ford Supermodel Brazil”, and then in the same competition only on an international scale she took the second place. The following year Adriana Lima signed a contract with the famous New York Agency “Elite Model”.
With Victories began the recognition. Adriana’s photoes decorated not only pages, but covers the most famous journals in the world. She started to closely collaborate with ELLE, Vogue, Marie Claire. The designers wanted to see the model on their shows; Adriana Lima was on the fashion shows such renowned designers as Vera Wang, Giorgio Armani, Fendi, Ralph Lauren, The Valentino. This list can be continued very long. The most successful advertising is considered to be a job for the brand “Vassarette”, after this photoes of Adriana people began to learn and to invite her to show other brands for advertisement.
In 2000 Adriana signed a contract with the widely-known brand “Guess” and photographed for advertising their jeans. And then for six years was the face of the world-famous cosmetic brand “Maybelline”.
However the most successful cooperation has been signed a contract with the notorious brand “Victoria’s Secret”. First Lima appeared at the fashion show of the brand in 1999, and signed the contract only in 2000 and still she is the official angel of the brand. The model repeatedly opened the shows of “Victoria’s Secret”.
The model numerously tried her in acting movies. The filmography is just limited to a few cameo parts. She played a small role in the TV series “Ugly Betty” and a small part in the film “The hire” with Mickey Rourke. This modest list of films with top model’s participation is too short while, but it is highly likely that in the next few years her career as an actress will raise.
The first one who won Adriana’s heart was the singer Lenny Kravitz. They dated for two years, which led to engagement. What are the reasons they broke up is unknown. After having an affair with Lenny, the model was spotted in the company of another person. The editorials of all fashion publications spread the news of her affair with the prince of Liechtenstein. And again after a two years relationship it ended in a breakup. A serious relationship Adriana has with basketball player from Serbia Marco Yarich. After meeting 3 years, they got married in 2009 and in the same year was born their first daughter Valentina after 3 years later was born Sienna.
