Adriana Lima
Adriana Lima was born on the 12th of June in 1981. Her place of birth was Salvador, Bahia in Brazil. She is five feet ten inches tall. Adriana’s measurements come in at bust 34 inches, waist 23 inches, and hips 33 inches. Adriana claims she is of African, Indian, and Swiss descent. At fifteen years of age, in 1996, Adriana placed first in the Ford Supermodel of the World Search held in Brazil. She then went on to the Ford Supermodel of the World competition, and she placed second. Three years later in 1999, Adriana moved to New York city and signed with Elite. Adriana has since expanded her portfolio considerably, including acting in the BMW short film with Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, and Forest Whitaker. Adriana’s GQ cover in April 2006 was the highest selling issue of that year, and she has since become known as the Catherine Zeta Jones of Italy. However, her nickname to close friends is LimaBean. She is probably best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret, and as of 2007, was the world’s fourth highest paid supermodel. Adriana is tri-lingual; she can speak Portuguese, Spanish, and English. It was reported that Adriana was engaged to Lenny Kravtiz, but she denies the rumours. In 2006, Adriana told GQ magazine that she was a virgin saving herself for marriage.
