Adriana Lima is a Victoria’s Secret vet.
The Brazilian supermodel has been posing with the lingerie company since 2000 but is a long way from retiring from the catwalk.
At 34, the blue-eyed brunette Angel — the title bequeathed to a Victoria’s Secret strutter who proudly dons gigantic wings during the retailer’s fashion shows — loves her job too much.
Part of the often-cushy gig involves traveling all over the world, but she can also call a tropical paradise home.

Bem vindo ao Miami. Translation from Portuguese: Welcome to Miami.
Check out her Instagram account — there she is having lunch in Wynwood, working out at The 5th Street Gym, posing with pals in Miami Beach.
You can check her out yourself next Thursday. The striking mother of two — ex-husband is Serbian basketball star Marko Jarić — will be mixing business with pleasure at the Lincoln Road store from 1 to 2 p.m. April 28, spritzing locals with the retailer’s popular Bombshell fragrance.
Access the VIP line (read: Snag a selfie with a runway legend) with an eau de parfum purchase of 1.7 oz. or larger.
How do you explain Bombshell to those who have never experienced it?
It’s one of my favorite scents. It’s a fruity floral fragrance with notes of purple passionfruit, peony and vanilla orchid. It’s a classic perfume that I think is perfect for every woman.
How does it make you feel when you wear it?
I’d say very feminine and lighthearted because of the beautiful and fresh notes.
Now that you’re in the 305, give us the intel on your top local haunt.
One of my favorite places is The Broken Shaker in Miami Beach. It’s both fun and casual.
Inquiring minds want to know: What’s your beauty routine?
I make sure to start each morning with a clean and fresh face. I typically add a natural oil for moisture and then depending on my day, I’ll add either a light pink lip and black mascara for running errands or a more bold red lip with black liner and mascara for a night out.
How are you staying fit lately?
I’ve been boxing for over a decade, and that’s my favorite workout. For me, it’s a mind and body exercise because you have to be very focused and determined to push yourself for one more burpee or pushup or punch.
What is your biggest guilty pleasure food-wise?
Chocolate molten cake. I can’t get enough.
What advice would you give to someone trying to break into modeling?
Although I started in the industry at a young age, I would encourage young women to also continue their education. No road in life is easy, but when you have a proper education, you have so many more opportunities available to you.
How often do you get home to Brazil?
I try to make it back for either vacation or work a few times a year. It’s hard to stay away for too long.
Any other news?
A few hours after the Bombshell appearance, I’m presenting at the Billboard Latin Music Awards.
