In a prolonged message posted to Instagram, Adriana Lima implied that she could be leaving Victoria’s Secret. The Brazilian mannequin, who has been an Angel since 1999, wrote on Saturday: “I realized that a majority of woman probably wake up every morning trying to fit in a stereotype that society/social media/fashion, etc. imposed. I thought that’s not a way of living and beyond that, that’s not physically and mentally healthy, so I decided to make that change. I will not take off my clothes anymore for an empty cause.”
The realization appeared to come back after receiving a name to shoot an attractive video to be posted on social media. After a good friend shared that she was sad together with her physique, Lima wrote, “It made me think…that everyday in my life, I wake up thinking, how do I look? Was I going to be accepted in my job?”
In November, Lima advised People that she has no less than two extra years to go earlier than hanging up her Angel wings. “I plan to be at 20. Two more years. Maybe more, I don’t know,” she shared backstage at her 18th Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show look. “It’s nature. I’m working out, I’m being healthy, so let’s see how the body is going to turn out. But I enjoy it. So let’s say 20.”
Perhaps signaling a change of coronary heart, Lima unfollowed a lot of the Victoria’s Secret Angels and Ed Razek, senior artistic at Victoria’s Secret, over the weekend.
