When talking about famous female models, pretty close to the top, we will see a name that may be recognized from many ads and shows, a name which can only be associated with one face that simply took the world of fashion my storm, and that name is Adriana Lima. If you don’t know the name, you surely know the face; a Brazilian that started from the age of 13 when she was discovered in a local mall. It didn’t take long for her to show her talent and natural beauty as well as her charismatic personality and by the age of 15, she won the Ford Supermodel of Brazil contest and came second in the Ford Supermodel of the World contest. This, of course, proved to be just a starting point in a long career in modeling and things only got bigger as she moved to the Big Apple, New York City.
After signing a contract with Elite Model Management, she became, little by little, quite famous and appeared in countless Vogue editions as well as other big fashion magazines and shows. Many of the big designers saw her as a perfect model and hired her to step on the catwalk with their latest clothes. Names such as Fendi, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren and many more can be found in her portfolio and by the year 2000, she wasn’t showing the slightest sign of slowing down. This year actually came with a new title, the Guess? girl after she featured in an ad campaign.
Other shows and magazines followed, each better than the last and in 2006, when she was the cover girl for GQ, the issue was the highest selling one of the year showing the world once again why Adriana Lima deserves to be considered one of the world’s most famous models. While her body and everything about it is perfect, no one can argue that her eyes are what make her so special; it is enough to look at them once and you are lost forever, or at least this is what fashion designers say.
Now, Adriana is a spokesperson for Angel and everyone is looking forward to seeing her again on the cover of famous magazines around the world.
