Biography and Career :

Adriana Lima (full name Adriana Francesca Lima) was born on June 12, 1981 in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil. She is a Brazilian supermodel, best known as one of the Victoria's Secret Angels.

Like her Brazilian counterparts Gisele Bundchen and Ana Beatriz Barros, Adriana Lima hails from a small town, far from the glamorous life she inhabits today. Her climb from obscurity to glam girl occurred after placing second in the Ford Supermodel of the World Contest. This came after she had won the 1996 Ford Supermodel of Brazil Contest.

She signed with Elite Model Management at the age of 16 and moved to one of the fashion centers of the world, New York. Once there, her modeling portfolio only 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 has also appeared in Vogue, US, Germany, UK and Marie Claire (Italy) all in 1999.

As for fashion shows, the Vogue girl has walked down the runway for the following designers: Cynthia Rowley, Vera Wang, Christian Lacroix, Emanuel Ungaro, Betsey Johnson, Girls Rule, Richard Tyler, Emporio Armani, Giorgio Armani, Fendi, Randolph Duke, Ralph Lauren and Valentino.

She revealed in the April 2006 cover feature of GQ magazine that, per her Catholic beliefs, she was still a virgin, explaining: "Sex is for after marriage. Men have to respect that this is my choice. If there's no respect, that means they don't want me."

She has dated many celebrities in the past, including an engagement with rocker Lenny Kravitz (ended in 2003), the prince of Liechtenstein and Major League Baseball player Derek Jeter.

Adriana Lima does charitable work by helping with an orphanage, "Caminhos da Luz" (Ways of Light), located in her hometown. Practically, she helps with construction to expand the orphanage and buys clothes for poor children in Salvador, Bahia.

Why we like Adriana Lima?

I think the proper question here is why not to like Adriana Lima. She is an extremely beautiful and succesful woman. She knows what she wants from life and she knows how to succeed in the career she chosen.

Why is Adriana Lima famous?

Adriana Lima is a spokeswoman for famous brands like Victoria's Secret, Guess and Armani. Adriana Lima has become one of the most in-demand runway models in the world. She has also walked the catwalk for designers Vera Wang, Christian Lacroix, Emanuel Ungaro, and Ralph Lauren.

Trivia :

- Height: 5'10"/178 cm

Quotes :

- "Modeling is a tough job, your co-workers are your rivals, it really puts a damper on your perspective of other girls."

- "Fashion is about good energy. It's about feelings. That's what I have to give the people, good energy and good feelings."

- "It's wrong for a guy to have no personality, no heart. Because I don't care about style or money. I care about heart."
