PostSubject: ADRIANA LIMA   Wed 24 Aug - 19:17

Adriana Francesca Lima (born June 12, 1981, Salvador, Bahia, Brazil[3]) is a Brazilian model, best known as a Victoria's Secret Angel since 2000, and as a spokesmodel for Maybelline cosmetics from 2003 to 2009. At the age of 15, Lima finished first in Ford's "Supermodel of Brazil" competition, and took second place the following year in the Ford "Supermodel of the World" competition before signing with Elite Model Management in New York City. Since 2005, Lima has ranked in the top five of Forbes' lists of the 20 highest-earning models in the world, and in 2006 ranked No.99 on the Forbes Celebrity 100. She is married to Serbian basketball player Marko Jarić (Serbian: Марко Јарић).

Career
Modeling
Lima never thought about being a model, although she had won many beauty pageants in elementary school.[4] However, she had a friend at school who wanted to enter a modeling contest and did not want to enter alone, so Lima entered with her. Both sent in pictures, and the contest sponsor soon asked Lima to come out for the competition. Soon after, at the age of 15, she entered and finished in first place in Ford's "Supermodel of Brazil" model search. She subsequently entered the 1996 Ford "Supermodel of the World" contest and finished in second place.[5] Three years later, Lima moved to New York City and signed with Elite Model Management. After acquiring representation, Lima's modeling portfolio quickly began to expand, and she appeared in numerous international editions of Vogue and Marie Claire. As a runway model, she has walked the catwalks for designers such as Vera Wang, Giorgio Armani and Valentino, among others. Lima became a GUESS? girl in 2000, appearing in that year's fall ad campaign. She also appeared in the book A Second Decade of Guess? Images.[3]

Lima continued to build upon her portfolio, doing more print work for Maybelline, for whom she worked as a spokesmodel from 2003[5][6] until 2009, the same year she appeared in the company's first calendar, a limited edition run also featuring Kemp Muhl, Jessica White, Julia Stegner, and Anna Wang.[7] Lima has also worked for notable fashion brands bebe, Armani, Versace, BCBG and Louis Vuitton. She also appeared on the covers and in the editorials of other fashion magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, ELLE, GQ, Arena, Vogue, V, Esquire and French Revue des Modes. Her April 2006 GQ cover was the highest-selling issue that magazine for the year.[8] She also appeared in the 2005 Pirelli Calendar[3] and became the face of Italy's cell phone carrier, Telecom Italia Mobile, a move that earned her the nickname, "the Catherine Zeta-Jones of Italy."[9]

In February 2008, Lima was featured on the cover of Esquire, re-creating the classic 1966 Angie Dickinson cover on Esquire's 75th anniversary along with fellow Victoria's Secret Angels Alessandra Ambrosio, Karolina Kurkova, Izabel Goulart and Selita Ebanks. She appeared only in shoes, diamonds and gloves for the November 2007 issue of Vanity Fair celebrating 20 years of supermodels with her fellow Angels.[10] In February 2008, she was chosen to be the face of Mexico's Liverpool department store chain and launched the partnership with a press conference, runway show, and summer campaign. Lima returned to the high fashion runway in 2009, walking for Givenchy.[11] That same year, after visiting Turkey, Lima signed a contract with Doritos to appear in print campaigns and commercials which began airing in Turkey that April. She was also one of the faces of Givenchy for the Fall/Winter 2009 season, alongside Mariacarla Boscono and Iris Strubegger.[12] Lima is one of the two faces of Blumarine's Fall/Winter 2011 season.[13]

In 2011, Lima signed a deal as a spokeswoman for Megacity by Votsu, a Brazilian social gaming company, to appear in their commercials.[14] She also became the face of Brazilian luxury brand, Forum for there F/W season.[15] Adriana Lima has worked with the most established photographers in fashion such as Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matidin, Vincent Peters, Mario Sorrenti, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and David Sims.

In 2006, Lima ranked as the fifth highest paid supermodel. In 2007 and 2008, she ranked as the world's fourth highest paid supermodel by Forbes Magazine.[8][16][17][18]

Victoria's Secret

Adriana Lima with the 2010 Fantasy Bra.Lima is probably best known for her work with Victoria's Secret. Her first fashion show for the company came in 1999, and since being contracted as an Angel in 2000, she has appeared on subsequent shows ever since, opening the show in 2003, 2007, 2008, and 2010.[citation needed] Lima has appeared on several television ads for the brand, including the praised and criticized[19][20] "Angel in Venice" commercial of 2003 with Bob Dylan and her solo Victoria's Secret's Super Bowl XLII ad, the single most-seen ad of the game, watched by 103.7 million viewers.[21] 2008 continued for Lima with hosting the What Is Sexy? program for the E! Entertainment Network and a July tour for the BioFit Uplift Bra launch. She was also featured in November's Miracle Bra relaunch.[22] Topping the year off, Lima wore the "Fantasy Bra" for the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The bra, created by American jewelry designer Martin Katz, was set with 3,575 black diamonds, 117 certified 1 carat (200 mg) white round diamonds, 34 rubies, and two black diamond drops totaling 100 carats (20 g). Valued at over $5 million, the bra carried more than 1,500 carats (300 g).[23]

In 2009, Lima launched the company's new makeup line, "Christian Siriano for VS Makeup."[citation needed] Lima skipped the 2009 show due to her pregnancy[citation needed] but she was back for the 2010 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, in which she wore the "Fantasy Bra" again, this time created by Damiani called "The Bombshell Fantasy Bra" valued at $2million.[citation needed]

Acting
Lima's first acting role was the wife, alongside Mickey Rourke and Forest Whitaker, in The Follow (2001), a short film in BMW's series The Hire, starring Clive Owen and directed by Wong Kar-wai. She also appeared with her fellow Angels in a guest spot playing herself in the series How I Met Your Mother in November 2007.

In 2008, Lima appeared on the American television series Ugly Betty, where she played herself and made friends with the series' title character, Betty.[24]

Reception
Lima was listed in the 2005 Forbes' edition of The World's Best-Paid Celebrities Under 25.[25] Also, she ranked No.99th in the 2006 Forbes' edition of The Celebrity 100 (Forbes' Highest Paid and Powerful Celebrities in the World).[26] Lima was chosen to be a part of People magazine's 100 most beautiful people in the world list, sharing that space with the Angels, with whom she also received a star on the Hollywood "Walk of Fame" prior to the 2007 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.[citation needed] That same year, she ranked 7th on FHMs "100 Sexiest Women 2007" list[27] and was awarded as the "Hottest Girl on the Planet" at the first Spike TV Guys' Choice Awards, although the category was not mentioned in the actual broadcast.[citation needed] Lima was also voted on Maxim's "Hot 100" 2007 at the No.53 spot.[citation needed] She was voted No.1 as the Most Desirable Woman in 2005 by visitors of the men's lifestyle website, Askmen.com (she placed 4th in 2006 and 2007, 10th in 2008, and 19th in 2009).[citation needed] Since November 2008, Models.com has featured her at number one on the list of the "Sexiest Models."[28] As of July 2011, she is also ranked No. 4 in the website's "Money Girls" list.[29] In 2010, she was voted eighth in "FHM's Sexiest Women In The World".[30] Previously to this, FHM ranked her at No. 6 in 2009, No. 21 in 2008 and No. 4 in 2007.[31] In an interview about beauty, celebrity photographer and Victoria's Secret main photographer, Russell James says Adriana is one of the most beautiful women he's ever worked with in the course of his career.[32]

“ Adriana Lima. I've seen her go from a young girl who's very unaware of how absolutely beautiful she was to this absolutely beautiful woman. But her heart is also so amazing. Any charity that asks her to work, she'll do it. And she's just so damn beautiful. You just look at her and you're 'Oh, jeez ...' It's ridiculous! [32] ”

Personal life

Victoria's Secret Angels Adriana Lima (left), Marisa Miller and Selita Ebanks ride in the Guantanamo Bay Christmas Parade Dec. 1, 2007Lima is a devout Catholic who attends church every Sunday.[33] In April 2006, she told GQ that she was a virgin. "Sex is for after marriage," she explained. "They [men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there's no respect, that means they don't want me."[33] Characterizing her religious roots, she is known for taking a Bible backstage to read.[34]

She has been romantically linked to musician/singer Lenny Kravitz and Prince Wenzeslaus of Liechtenstein.[17] In November 2007, it was confirmed that Lima was dating Serbian basketball player Marko Jarić (Марко Јарић).[35][36] Originally, the couple planned on a large wedding in Salvador, set to place in June 2009. Eventually, they eloped in a private civil ceremony in Jackson Hole, Wyoming on St. Valentine's Day in February 2009,[36] with plans for two separate weddings in their respective hometowns at the end of 2009.[37] In May 2009, it was reported that Lima applied for Serbian citizenship.[38] Shortly thereafter, she announced that she was pregnant and expecting her first child around Thanksgiving.[39] The couple's daughter, Valentina Lima Jarić (Валентина Лима Јарић), was born on November 15, 2009. Valentina was born at 34 weeks gestation, weighing just 4.4 lb (2.0 kg), due to Lima's suffering from preeclampsia.[40]

Charity
Lima does charitable work helping with an orphanage, "Caminhos da Luz" (Ways of Light), located in her hometown. She helps with construction to expand the orphanage, and buys clothes for poor children in Salvador, Bahia.[41] She appeared on Var mısın? Yok musun?, the Turkish version of Deal or No Deal, where her prize money went to a hospital in Istanbul for children fighting leukemia.[42]

Our favorite bombshell Adriana Lima once again shines as she promotes the new Victoria’s Secret Showstopper bra today at the giant Herald Square VS store. Adriana talks with MDC about some of her favorite VS moments and what are her inspirations.

MDC: What has been the best “show stopping” moment working with Victoria’s Secret so far?

Adriana Lima: There’s been a lot of show stopping moments working for Victoria’s Secret! My first VS fashion show in 1998 on Wall Street was definitely a show stopper. I was backstage with Stephanie Seymour, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks and I never thought I would be a part of this and there I was! It was like a dream come true. I became who I am today, career wise thanks to Victoria’s Secret. The first time I opened the show was another show stopping moment. In one of the Victoria’s Secret commercials with Michael Bay, there is a scene where I open the fridge and drink the milk and spill some… I love that scene! When I saw it, I was like, “Oh my God! This is nice!” Many campaigns… there are so many show stopping moments!

MDC: What do you think about the new ShowStopper collection?

AL: I’m obsessed with this collection. Not just because I’m promoting it today (laughs), but because it’s the perfect bra for every woman. You can feel confident wearing that tight top. You can get out there knowing that you are going to be covered – it’s no-show coverage exactly where you need. You can show off all your curves and be confident with the right coverage.

MDC: How have you enjoyed motherhood and seeing your daughter, Valentina, grow up?

AL: It’s been wonderful. She has definitely changed me in a great way; I feel more beautiful and I’m a different person. And she loves clothes! And bras and lingerie! You have to see, when she gets into my closet she goes, “Wow! Nice!” It’s so cute.

MDC: How old is she now?

AL: She’s 21 months. She has a few words. She cannot say a full sentence yet but she can definitely say, “come, go, water, nice, pretty“. She speaks English, Portuguese, and Serbian… I cannot believe it. She’s 21 months and she already speaks more languages than I do. She’s amazing.

MDC: Who did you look up to when you were starting out? Do you have a favorite model?

AL: I looked up to Bettie Page. I looked up to the pin up girls. I also looked up to Marilyn Monroe – a lot. I don’t have any model inspirations, but I watch a lot of movies. La Dolce Vita – everything about that movie I love. And Flashdance. I like to watch movies to get inspired for photoshoots.

Adriana Lima is a true supermodel: the VS Angel and new mom juggles an impressive array of activities, but still manages to look like a million bucks. As current Sexiest Model in the World and face of VS’s newly launched Bombshell collection, Adriana was on hand yesterday at the Mondrian Hotel to show off the megabrand’s latest offerings and send out a special message to her fans.

MDC: Did you know that you’re one of the most popular models on our site? We constantly get emails of people asking about you!

Adriana: Wow, It is a pleasure to hear that, thank you guys! It always makes me happy that people want to see me. I’ve been modeling over 10 years – 15 years total now and I can’t believe that I’m still here! I have to say thank you to those people. They’re responsible for my success – they’re the ones who are keeping me working.

MDC: I’m sure your fans will love to hear that.

Adriana: Well it is true, I wouldn’t be where I am today without them.

MDC: Now you do so much – VS, high fashion work, etc. how do you find a balance?

Adriana: It is not easy – it takes a lot of organization, being a mom and working and traveling is not easy, but I enjoy what I do. I love modeling and I love meeting new people, seeing the world, hearing wonderful things like what you just told me. That is what keeps me going.

MDC: What are some of your favorite pieces from the Bombshell collection?

My three favorite things are the balcony bra, which is our newest bra and its part of the collection for the summer. I love a push up bra, I’m all about the push up! This bra is perfect for the summer because its very light, it comes in great colors and gives you the perfect pushup without the extra padding and its very comfortable. If you want the extra va-va-voom you can go to the Miraculous bra which gives you an extra two cup sizes, it is one of the most popular Victoria’s Secret bras. Now they’re making it in a swimsuit as well, which is great. You can get a bikini, a two piece or if you’re feeling conservative, a nice one piece.
