Adriana Lima: Dropping Baby Weight For VS Fashion Show was Challenging

Adriana Lima: Dropping Baby Weight For VS Fashion Show was Challenging

Adriana Lima is all bundled up as she heads out in the Meatpacking District of New York City on Tuesday (December 4).

The 31-year-old model recently opened up about losing her baby weight for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

“You don’t know what nature is going to return to you,” she told CBS. “You do your job. I was working out. I was being a mom. … I’m Brazilian and I’m a woman. I was really curvy when I was pregnant and I gained a lot of weight, really.

“Something over 40 pounds,” Adriana said when asked how much she gained. “Much, much, much more than that. I don’t want to give it away. So it was a challenge. But nature was good, I guess. Thank you, nature.”

In case you missed it, check out Adriana walking the catwalk at the VS Fashion Show back in November. Adriana gave birth a little less than two months prior to her second child, a girl named Sienna.

    She is simply stunning! Her modesty makes her even more adorable.

    Notice the difference between Adriana’s paparazzi shots and Miranda Kerr’s. Miranda is very aware, ready, willing and eager to walk/pose for the paparazzi. Adriana is surprised by them but gives them a nice face. Miranda is dressed like it’s Spring/Summer. Adriana is dressed for the appropriate season! Miranda’s pictures always have 1 or 2 that have her getting in/out of a car. Adriana’s pictures have a fan running up behind her and requesting to take a picture with her, of which she obliges.

    That is the difference between real and fake. I love Adriana. She’s so beautiful and down-to-earth.

  • aine

    she could come up and slap me in the face and i wouldn’t have a clue who she is…

  • Meme

    Adriana is easily the most beautiful woman in the world. No designer outfit or $3000 handbag needed. It’s not often that you see someone who is so gorgeous yet so unpretentious. She’s beautiful inside and out.

  • rachel


  • hello.

    Face of a goddess.

  • Sase

    Beautiful, down to earth lady, always ready for her fans.
    I like the photos.

  • Nicole

    I love that she’s honest about losing baby weight being a challenge! It seems like it’s the new thing for celebrities to act like all their extra weight fell off immediately post-baby.

  • Kim

    I can’t figure out if its her eyes or what but she’s so stunning and just different looking then the rest of the VS models.

  • Alec


    Well, she’s a lovely mixed race afro-brazilian. That’s why she looks different from the rest. She’s quite beautiful.

  • Smurf

    Why do all Brazilian women like to use that “I’m Brazilian” line so often.
    Does it make u an alien?

  • JonathanWiki

    Love my job, since I’ve been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I’m making it online(Click on menu Home)

  • Rachel

    Love everything about her, and good for her for going on the catwalk even tough her body wasn’t 100% back to pre baby form. IMO being that honest is a lot harder to do than just snapping back quickly and boasting about it every other second like some Angels.

  • Diliana von Bork

    Look! A model that doesn’t call the paps!
    I don’t think she is the only mixed race. I don’t think this is the reason, Alec.

  • Le

    Because brazilian females are really curvy, much more than north americans and some europeans. Not fat, but with more meat in some places.

    And she´s not necessarily afro, in Brazil we were largely colonized by europeans, and also africans. That´s why the mix is so nice.

  • deuces


    She is from Salvador (Bahia), which is called the African soul of Brazil. She has said in interviews that she is afro brazilian. She should know what she is more than you.

  • Sara

    omg… her fan running to catch Adriana Lima it’s so cute

  • what!

    oh hey! someone who is actually dressed for the east coast weather – miranda kerr take note.. also, she doesn’t seem to use her kid as a tool for publicity.. good for you A.L!!

  • what!

    @deuces: she is Afro-Brazilian? i didn’t know that but i’m going to look it up (and before some dumb a s s tries to jump on this comment.. I know you don’t have to look specifically black to be A.B) – either way, she’s a beautiful woman.

  • @Dee

    Miranda was dressed uo because she was going to meetings and photo shoots. When she wasn’t, she was in jeans. And since when is a light jacket or coat not appropriate for weather in the 50′s? Are you the one that was pretending that you lived in NY, and that it was “freezing”, when it was actually only slightly cool? That person sure did look foolish, didn’t they. Was it you?
    And now it’s wrong to have a car waiting for you? That’s ridiculous. If the situations were reversed, you would be claiming that Miranda SHOULD have had a car waiting, but since she didn’t that means that she wants to hang around for the paps. We all know about your double standards, so you can’t deny it. The fact remains that Miranda gave the paps less time to photograph her, while Adriana is just hanging out on the corner waiting to be photographed.
    And why aren’t you claiming that Adriana called the paps? Since she obviously love attention, and since she had no qualms about inviting them to watch her box, why aren’t you calling her a famewhore like you do Miranda? You claim that paps don’t hang out in NY. You claim that bigger stars in NY don’t get papped. You claim that to get papped in NY, you HAVE to call them, yet here you are complimenting Adriana.
    You do know that you, and your cronies are the biggest liars and hypocrites on the web, don’t you.

  • @15

    If she didn’t call the paps, how did they find her?

  • ….

    tbh i was annoyed when they had her stomach covered, but then she came out with her post pregnancy belly and i was fu*cking proud!!! i think women are beautiful at any size and any stage in their lives and we’ll all be a lot happier if we stop trying to see perfection in thinspiration

  • ?

    What is she doing?
    She looks like she is just standing around waiting for a bus.
    Is she hoping that more people will recognize her and give her some attention?
    Especially snce Candice, Ale and Miranda got all of the buzz from last night’s show.

  • blah

    how did that crazy miranda kerr fan find her way over here? ughhhhh!!!#@

  • hmmm

    Soooo, if Miranda smiles and/or waves at the paps, she is a famewhore.
    if Adriana smiles and/or waves at the paps, she is just “giving a nice face”.
    What was that word again? Oh yeah. Hypocrite.

  • ha!

    @hmmm: maybe because miranda kerr is on here daily? smiling/waving/exploiting her kid. etcccccccccccccccc

  • @27

    Doesn’t matter. Smiling and waving, is smiling and waving.
    I guess that the paps don’t camp out waiting fo Adriana. That was why she had to invite them to the gym.

  • ha!

    @@27: go back to masturbating on miranda kerr’s thread.

  • Dieter

    She has an IQ of 160 !!!!

  • ?

    Love how you haters think that it is OK to attack Miranda on Adriana’s thread, then bi*ch about fans bringing her up on the thread when they are defending her.
    Our favorite word of the day?

  • blah

    @?: G o a w a y
    far far a w a y

  • Boo

    Always amazes me how the most famous face of VS is never that photographed

  • Boo

    @?: Shut Up. Miranda is s fame HO. deal with it.

  • AnnSa

    Well two things are for certain. She’s a beautiful woman. And people love her

  • and

    I don’t like her kind of beauty. But she looks to be a grounded woman.

  • zzzzz

    gorgeous woman. wish JJ posted more of her

  • Anne

    This woman is unbelievably beautiful, and I like her laid back style. So much better than that annoying Miranda.

  • um

    @Anne: thats true.. but don’t start that crazy fan girl up.. she’s exhausting

  • rtt


  • Jenna

    Love her. She actually seems like a genuine person, especially compared to all the other VS models.

  • Julie

    Because Brazilian girls have a really hot curvy body naturally, which makes them proud. And that’s why there are a lot of them as top models in the fashion industry.
    And I don’t know if you’re gay or you are really just blind to don’t realize that.

  • hay

    Brazilians rule!

  • retrobanana

    i like miranda and adriana equally but i think adriana is like the ultimate goddess of all goddess have loved her forever…

  • Angel

    So stunning,what a face!!!!!!!!!!!!!
