Adriana Lima: I'm the Grandma of the Victoria's Secret Angels

Adriana Lima: I'm the Grandma of the Victoria's Secret Angels

Adriana Lima blows a kiss while attending a photo call to launch the new Victoria’s Secret Fantasy Bra worth $10 million on Monday (December 16) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The 32-year-old model recently chatted with Vogue UK about being one of the longest-serving Angels, having walked in thirteen shows for the lingerie giant.

“I’m definitely the grandma,” Adriana joked. “I first walked in the show in 2000, but I was working with the brand even before that, actually. My first show, Stephanie Seymour and Karen Mulder were in it, too – and it is amazing to have done the show for so long… I love the new girls, though. Cara [Delevingne] is so cool. I love the girls that they choose, they are always super nice, really excited. It’s just the most fun job.”

FYI: Adriana is wearing Jerome C. Rousseau heels.

    Thanks for the nice pictures, for a “grandma” she looks really great :-)… I wonder what she will do after working with Victorias Secret.

    wow, i can’t imagine adriana being in a VS show with karen and stephanie. now THAT is what i call a man’s dream come true versus the girls they have now. and what a surprisingly nice gesture for her to mention cara out of all of the new girls, wasn’t expecting that. but i think she’s the closest with doutzen or ale even though i don’t care much for ale but doutzen is a sweetheart. it also looked like she was really close to ana beatriz barros but ana doesn’t model for VS anymore and i have no idea why cause she’s absolutely stunning, and way more beautiful than ale that’s for sure.

    Last night, I dreamed that very wet Adriana Lima and some of her sisters were sitting on the grass having lunch at my late grandma’s house in north Seattle. She was wearing a bikini and sweating alot like in Emma’s 133rd Shampoo sign image. So I removed my Julia Child cooking apron and started to dry her off a little, but she said that it was too greasy or something; not sure exactly.

    She puts the latest models to shame. Far from a ‘grandmother’. She is more stunning than ever!

    by ‘grandmother’ she was obviously referring to be one of the ‘oldest’ VS girls left in the group, with Heidi , Tyra and Gisele out …she stayed the longest , along with Alessandra. and that every year they cast new younger girls… she must be a good mentor :)
    I met doutzen at a signing, she seemed reserved and not social (at the time)…But very beautiful in person… the makeup they use , is WOW.

    Adriana is beautiful, but are her boobs fake or not? I like her when she’s natural.

    She sure doesn’t look like it! In my opinion I think the newbie Karlie Kloss looks like one of the oldest, yet she’s the youngest at only 21. Can’t believe it.

    With all due respect, Lima strikes me as one of those people who runs- is running from her depression (she reportedly suffered from around 2006-2008) by traveling all over the world and working almost non-stop. It’s kind of sad and I’d be upset if my mom was doing that than taking care of me and giving most if not all her time to me. It seems like she prioritizes her work over her family- her two daughters and her husband. I don’t know. God bless her if she’s happy. It’d be nicer if she eased way back (possibly let it all be) on the career and high profile jazz after she married, bought a house and had kids. Anyone else, same thoughts?

    Yep we know. You’ve only been panty pushing for the same dang company your whole c list modeling career. Without VS she would hardly have a career. Shes never been very in demand for the brands and magazines/photographers that count. From 1999-2008 all she did was model for anons. She sort of picked up a little more in recent years, but still super d list caliber for a model whos been working so long.
