Adriana Lima, from Bahia Brazil is one of fashion’s most recognizable supermodels in fashion. Adriana’s exotic multi ethnic beauty has aligned as the face and image of some of most prestigious fashion clientele including Givenchy, Donna Karan, Maybeline, and most famously as the cornerstone of the Victoria’s Secret brand for the past ten years.
Adriana is perhaps best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret. Her first fashion show for the company was in 1999, and she has been an official Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000. She has appeared in subsequent Victoria’s Secret runways ever since, even opening the show on numerous occasions. She has also been featured on countless television ads for the brand, and her solo Victoria's Secret Super Bowl XLII commercial was the most-seen ad of the game
In early November 2011, Adriana traveled to Haiti with Donna Karan and the Clinton Global Initiative to shoot the Spring|Summer 2012 Donna Karan Campaign. This trip marked Adriana’s first immersion into the Haitian culture and she truly felt that Haiti reminded her of her hometown of Bahia, Brazil. Immediately after returning from Haiti, Adriana expressed a deep interest in participating in charity work to inform individuals of the current issues in Haiti. Adriana’s most recent charitable venture is taking an active role in St. Damian’s Hospital in Haiti. Her primary function in the St. Damian’s endeavor is to raise awareness of maternal health and proper medical care for mothers and young children in Haiti.
