You’d think the Olympics would lack a variety of standout fashion moments, but several Brazilian-born models are in Rio de Janeiro to prove us all wrong.
On Monday, 35-year-old Victoria’s Secret bombshell Adriana Lima spent her afternoon with The Today Show team right by the beach where hosts Hoda Kotb, Matt Lauer, and Al Roker are stationed as they interview top athletes and, well, Lima, too. “The @todayshow squad,” she simply wrote as the caption to a group shot of herself with the stars.
Yes, we’re sure Lima excellently represented her host country’s culture, but it’s what she wore to the daytime outing that also wowed. Lima rocked a silky, ‘70s-like pair of high-waist, wide-leg pants with black sandals, a black asymmetrical RVN top ($168; rvnnyc.com), and a gold choker. She let her naturally wavy locks run free and smiled as she walked along the beach effortlessly.
Fellow Brazilian star Alessandra Ambrosio, who posed with Pita Taufatofua, the hunky flag bearer from Tonga, for a segment, also joined the beauty nearby.
Talk about a model takeover.
