Adriana Lima's Style Evolution: From Brazilian Beauty Queen To Victoria's Secret Angel (PHOTOS)

Best known for her cleavage-revealing mini-dresses, piercing blue eyes, shiny, dark hair and strutting her stuff in a $2 million dollar diamond-encrusted bra, Adriana Lima is one of the most beautiful women on earth. Her body is so well-regarded that the Victoria's Secret angel starred in two Superbowl commercials last February.

Although today she is one of the highest-paid models in the world, Lima got her start competing in beauty pageants in her native Brazil. After finishing first in Ford's Supermodel of Brazil competition and placing second in the Ford Supermodel of the World contest, Lima found herself in the international spotlight. Off the runway, the supermodel has a glamorous wardrobe to match her successful career. Even being pregnant with her second child hasn't slowed the Angel down one bit.

To celebrate the Brazilian model's 31st birthday on Tuesday, we're taking a look back at her wild, skimpy and stunning outfits. Which of Lima's looks is your favorite?
