Adriana Lima Reveals When She’ll Retire from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show
Alessandra Ambrosio walked her last Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Monday in Shanghai, but her fellow 36-year-old Angel Adriana Lima isn’t planning on retiring anytime soon. The model and mom of two, who has walked the show 18 times, said backstage that she has at least two more years on the VS runway.
“I plan to be at 20. Two more years. Maybe more, I don’t know,” Lima told People. “It’s nature. I’m working out, I’m being healthy, so let’s see how the body is going to turn out. But I enjoy it. So let’s say 20.”
Lima has worn the Fantasy Bra three times throughout her years as an Angel. “This is my 18th Victoria’s Secret fashion show, and I could not be more excited to be here in Shanghai,” she said. “I feel very emotional to be part of it, in a good way. After so many years and to have a chance to see Victoria’s Secret go and have their fashion show internationally, it’s really an honor for me to be part of it. And every girl who is here deserves to be here. They’ve got what it takes to be an Angel. They have unbelievable personalities.”
“I appreciate to get this kind of respect and love from the girls I work with,” she said. “We work together. We spend a lot of time doing the show so it’s important that we have this kind of connection with each other. It will show later in the work, when we are on the runway or doing commercials together. I really appreciate this from them.”
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs on Tuesday, Nov. 28, at 10 p.m. ET on CBS.
