Adriana Lima Wants to Meet the Dalai Lama, Lose Her Accent

Adriana Lima Wants to Meet the Dalai Lama, Lose Her Accent

Adriana Lima shows off her gorgeous gams in a short white dress at the IWC Schaffhausen Top Gun Gala at the Palexpo Exhibition Hall on Tuesday (January 17) in Geneva, Switzerland.

The 30-year-old Brazilian supermodel joined CEO George Kern at the bash, where she later changed into a blue dress.

Adriana recently revealed some of her ambitious New Year’s resolutions.

On the Victoria’s Secret model’s list: learn how to play piano, do some more boxing, get a driver’s license, meet the Dalai Lama, and take speech classes to help her get rid of her accent!

FYI: Adriana is wearing Rene Caovilla shoes with both outfits.

20+ pictures inside of Adriana Lima at the IWC Schaffhausen Top Gun Gala…

    Why would she want to meet the Dalai Lama? Is she a Buddhist?
    I know that Miranda is, but I didn’t know about Adri.
    And it’s good that she wants to work on her accent. It would open up more opportunities for her stateside if she was easier to understand. I think that helped Miranda in VS. She was given a lot of speaking parts in commercials, and as a spokesperson because her accent is much easier for Americans to understand, and many find it charming.

    good idea out of all the angels I find her the most painful to listen to. I get second hand embarrassment for her when she speaks. This is why she has never been on any of the big talk shows more and likely. They always send Miranda and before that, Marisa.

    im guessing she wants to act… ((so less people with talent – more models in movies??? ))
    anyway.. i think she has a beautiful face – - but pretty much similar to most of the Brazilian models – not so unique.

    IMO she hasn’t been pretty since 2005/ Shes had weight fluctuations ever since then and her face looks chipmunky most of the time and not to mention those horrible halitosis teeth.

    She is 30 and still only models lingerie? lmao…

    I don’t think her accent is the problem. She needs to take English classes. If she speaks English very well, her accent won’t be any problem.

    @jane: i love when peoples only defense is ‘stop being jealous’.. as if thats the only reason to not find someone attractive.. we all find people pretty in different ways.. stop assuming everyone has the same mind.

    Her accent is sexy, but her grasp of the English language is poor. She can improve upon her grasp. I love that she is not as narcisstic and obnoxious as some of her other counterparts

    Adriana 12 year old fangirls (the bulk of her fanbase, cuz thats all she can attract lmao) are known to call “jealous” to anyone who doesnt prefer the island girl/adult film star aesthetic. so overrated she and her fans one note taste.

    Not as narcisstic and obnoxious??
    What do you call trying to hog the attention at the latest VS show? Whe she walked to close a section, instead of GRACEFULLY walking off like a model is supposed to do, she stopped, turned to the audience, and litterally begged for applause. She looked ridiculous and self centered. She didn’t open, and she didn’t have the fantasy bra, so she was desperate for attention, I guess. But it was embarrasing!

    G Says:

    Doesn’t she know her accent is one of the things that makes her sexy and exotic? Example: Sofia Vergara. Why does she want to drop it anyway, some kind of belated colonial mentality?

    @25 Says:

    Sophia speaks much better English, and much clearer. Her accent is both sexy and charming.
    Adriana’s however sound horrible when she tries to speak English. And it isn’t pretty to watch, either. She opens her mouth too wide, yet still seems to be speaking trough a mouth full of marbles.
    She’s smart to want to soften her accent. Many endorsement deals require their spokesperson to actually speak clearly (inagine that). Sophia has several endorsement deals, and is on American commercials quite frequently. Adriana can’t even get VS to give her a speaking part..

Not a true model. what happened to SUPERmodels like Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista who lived, breathed,, personified fashion! she needs braces. or mouthwash. rotten mouth. yucky.

    I agree 2005 was her last good year. In 2006, she lost her 3 year boyfriend, Prince Wales of Liechtenstein and her father died…. So maybe that had some influence on her appearance because again, I agree she didn’t look good since. Even though Victoria’s Secret went south after 2002… 2006 is pushing it… she stayed (for the money and notoriety). In fact, most know her for just that, Victoria’s Secret.

    She had potential to be a one of a kind, untouchable, deserving supermodel… before she foolishly wasted it.

    Supermodel? Not.

    Old, boring panty model hoping to be an actress, but can’t because she has no talent. Yes.

    Shame on her for wanting to get rid of her heritage aka her “accent”. She’s so insecure she can’t just own it.
