LUXE Models Success Stories: Adriana Lima
In order to give yourself the best chance to become a model, you should first find a role model, to show you how to carve out a successful career in one of the world’s most exciting industries! If you’re looking for modelling success stories, find out more about Adriana Lima, who during her career has become a true industry titan!
Adriana was born in 1981, in the Brazilian city of Salvador. Growing up, Adriana never saw herself becoming a model, despite the fact that she won beauty contests at school. According to Maybelline, a make-up brand Adriana later worked with, the Brazilian beauty’s career began when she was just 13.
The future model was discovered at a shopping mall. At just 15, Adriana triumphed in the ‘Ford Supermodel of Brazil’ contest, going on to place second in the ‘Ford Supermodel of the World’ competition. With this validation, Adriana decided to move to global fashion capital New York and before long, she was signed with Elite Model Management, one of the top modelling agencies on earth.
