Adriana Lima was born in 1981, in Salvador, Brazil. She was discovered at the age of 13 while shopping at a local shopping mall. Then in 1996 at the age of 15, she won the 'Ford Supermodel of Brazil' contest, and continued on to the 'Ford Supermodel of the World' competition, where she came second.

Shortly after her sixteenth birthday, Adriana signed with Elite Model Management, and moved to one of the fashion centers of the world, New York. Once there, her modeling portfolio began to expand rapidly, after appearing in Vogue (Italy) in 1997, as well as Vogue (UK), I-D (UK), Marie Claire (Brazil), and Vogue (Italy) in 1998. Adriana Lima also appeared in Vogue (US, Germany, UK), and Marie Claire (Italy) all in 1999.

A stunning blend of French, Portuguese, Native American and Caribbean, five foot ten with chocolate brown hair and steel blue eyes, she is sexy and intelligent, but doesn't take herself to seriously. Her beautiful face has been on a billboard in Times Square and on the covers of Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire, Vogue Italia and Elle.

One of Adriana's most notable catwalk appearances was in the Victoria's Secret Summer 2000 Swimwear Catalogue (shot in Cannes), where the Brazilian beauty shared the spotlight with a bevy of supermodels such as Heidi Klum and Laetitia Casta. She has also been photographed by some of the world's greatest photographers -- such as Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh and Ellen von Unwerth.

Before becoming a model Adriana wanted to help children, now aged 24, and very popular, she dedicates her spare time and money to the 'Caminos Da Luz' orphanage in Bahia, her native home town in Brazil.
