Adriana began her Victoria Secret journey at just 18 years old in 1999 and later signed a deal to become an official ‘Angel’ in 2000. Her 18 year career as an angel has seen her open the runway show 5 times and wear the world-famous fantasy bra 3 times, an honour only given to the utmost deserving of all the angels, usually Victoria Secret’s most loyal models.

Adriana Lima has become the most recognisable Victoria Secret model and while it is sad to see her leave the company, she will remain one of the most iconic angels of all time. CelebMix wishes her the best of luck with all her future endeavours, we love you Adriana!
