Adriana Lima has been walking in Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows since 1999 — yes, you read that correctly.
The 35-year-old Brazilian model has opened five shows and has worn the coveted bejeweled Fantasy Bra three times. Through the years, she’s worn dozens of elaborate costumes paired with dramatic thigh-high boots, embellished sandals and more.
The only years Lima didn’t walk in the show were 2004, when Victoria’s Secret instead held an “Angels Across America” tour instead, and in 2009, when Lima gave birth to her first child.
This year, Lima wore two looks: a purple lingerie ensemble with bright yellow embellished boots and a red and blue lacy set with black patent leather boots.
Gigi Hadid, who walked in her second Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year, professed her admiration for Lima on Instagram following the filming of the show last week in Paris.
