Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima Reveals How She Stays Young
For the past 16 years, Adriana Lima has made her way down the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway.
Since 1999, the 35-year-old Brazilian supermodel has dropped jaws and inspired people to live healthy, active lifestyles in the hopes of getting a body even a quarter as good as hers.
Adriana, who is as humble, wholesome and warm as she is stunning, spoke with Elite Daily right after walking in this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show on November 30 at the Grand Palais in Paris, France.
After over a decade and a half of wearing wings with the eyes of the world on her, we wanted the details on the biggest changes Adriana has experienced during her time on the catwalk.
Definitely the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show gets bigger and bigger and more iconic... more countries are watching all over the world, over 190 countries are watching. We bring so much Christmas cheer, so much positivity and happiness to homes and to women and it's so great to be working with a company that represents women in such a beautiful way, they embrace every type of woman no matter where you're from or how old you are. And I'm very proud to be part of it.
For most, walking in close to 20 Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows is an unattainable achievement. Lima, however, revealed her life goal isn't yet completed.
I have a goal in my life, and my goal is to have longevity. I want to live many, many years. So I know for that I have to live and do everything in a healthy way... I'm just trying to do my best, but I'm not perfect. I have my days!
At this rate, the mother of two is on track to find, or quite possibly create, the true Fountain of Youth.
With so much excitement in this year's show – the stunning venue, the incredible musical performances of Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars and the Weeknd and the sheer beauty of Paris – one can only imagine which part Adriana favored most.
Of her favorite moment backstage, she said,
There was a moment that all the girls, before we started the show, we held our hands and... all of us, i know this is going to sound crazy but it does help us with the nerves, we screamed like the loudest we could… and then we just let it go and it was really great to have that connection.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show undoubtedly earned its title of the "sexiest night on television" yet again.
