Adriana Lima is the pinnacle of success for a super model. She is one of the top paid models in the world and has graced the covers of top fashion magazines world wide. She is best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Model, a position she took in 2000.
This Brazilian model and actress has appeared in Superbowl Ads, movies like The Follow and How I Met Your Mother. She also appeared on the American television series Ugly Betty where she played herself.
Lima took criticism in 2011 when she discussed her pre-show diet where for 9 days she drinks only protein shakes. She said, “No liquids at all so you dry out, sometimes you can lose up to eight pounds just from that.” We think the criticism wasn’t warranted. Many athletes, figure models and body builders do extreme diets before shows. This is nothing new.
She is married to Serbian NBA player Marko Jaric and still looks amazing after having two girls.
