Adriana Lima Retires From Victoria’s Secret — See Her Tearful Goodbye
By Pacey on November 9, 2018
Adriana Lima has hung up her angel wings.
Thursday (November 8) night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show marked the 37-year-old supermodel’s last show, and her 18th VS catwalk, with the lingerie brand that launched her career 20 years ago.
Adriana hinted at her retirement on Instagram, ahead of Thursday’s show, captioning a montage of her greatest Victoria’s Secret moments: “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. ❤️ to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana 💖.”
While the show doesn’t air until next month, fan photos and video showed that Adriana was given the honor of closing out this year’s show. For her last strut down the VS catwalk, Adriana wore a beautiful feathered look. The weight of her final moments on the runway seemed to get to the 20-year vet who broke down into tears during her end-of-runway pose.
