Adriana Lima Retires As Victoria’s Secret Angel, Takes Last Walk Today



After 20 years of working with the label, Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima is retiring as she takes her last walk at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

The 37-year-old model did her final show with Victoria’s Secret today. For this year’s show, Adriana closed the Celestial Angels segment and took her final walk as an Angel while wearing a moon wing matched with black shoes studded with sparkling stones.

In a fan video, Adriana was spotted getting teary during the Flights of Fantasy segment while gesturing a huge thank you to the crowd.

Adriana was grateful for Victoria’s Secret for the journey she went through as a veteran Angel. In an Instagram post she posted a montage of her in all 18 shows she walked for the label, saying:

Dear Victoria,
Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana 💖

As a true Victoria’s Secret veteran Angel, Adriana Lima wore the Fantasy Bra three times, fronted multiple lingerie launches, and even considered by most VS models as their Guardian Angel.
