Supermodel Adriana Lima Hangs Up Victoria's Secret Angel Wings After 2018 VS Fashion Show

Adriana Lima  announced her retirement from Victoria’s Secret after walking her 18th and last fashion show at Manhattan’s Pier 94. Her  Instagram post  was a sweet goodbye.

Adriana Lima announced her retirement from Victoria’s Secret after walking her 18th and last fashion show at Manhattan’s Pier 94. Her Instagram post was a sweet goodbye.

Victoria’s Secret Angel, Brazilian beauty Adriana Lima is hanging up her wings after two decades and 18 fashion shows with the brand. Lima shared the news on her Instagram following Thursday night’s taping of the annual show.

The name Adriana Lima is almost synonymous with the Victoria’s Secret brand, and Lima is so devoted to its success that she famously walked the runway in 2012, just five weeks after giving birth.

"Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the ❤️ to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana 💖"

Victoria’s Secret sent Adriana out with a bang, devoting a whole segment of her final VS runway walk to her. Making a solo walk down the runway against the backdrop of a video montage of her spectacular VS career, tears broke when Victoria’s Secret gave her a sign to carry that read, "Thank you to the best Angel of all time."

Lima’s departure comes a year after the retirement of fellow Brazilian sister Alessandra Ambrosio, who retired her wings after 17 years after the 2017 fashion show. With multiple challenges for the brand dominating its current status, the departure of Adriana Lima is one more data dot in projecting the Victoria’s Secret future.

The early read on VS execs Ed Razek and Monica Mitro’s online Vogue interview “We’re Nobody’s Third Love, We’re Their First Love”—The Architects of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Are Still Banking on Bombshells is not great. The Cut wrote: This Interview With the Minds Behind Victoria’s Secret Is . . . Really Something.

I know both Ed and Monica and have articulated my own thoughts on Victoria’s Secret many times. It’s a moment for reflection before saying anything else right now about Victoria’s Secret. Meanwhile, we share a look back at Adriana Lima’s career to date. There’s no doubt that she has an exciting future ahead of her.

Angels-quote-2-24-15-.jpg

Two more Victoria’s Secret Angels have left the flock. Karlie Kloss made the biggest news last Friday, leaving the world’s largest lingerie brand to pursue a degree at New York University while maintaining her modeling career and business interests.

Doutzen Kroes

Now we learn that Doutzen Kroes also left the Victoria’s Secret gaggle of Angels in late December to pursue a ‘lucrative business opportunity in Europe. Like with Kloss, Ed Razek, Chief Marketing Officer of VS, stressed that there was no conflict. Doutzen Kroes now has two children with husband Sunnery James: their son Phyllon and new daughter Myllena. Razek wrote on his Instagram account:

Doutzen had a lucrative opportunity in Europe and it would have conflicted with her VS obligations. So, at her agencies request, we released her from contract. There was no conflict. No animosity. None of the nonsense I’ve read on Instagram. She had a great business opportunity, and I wanted to be fair to someone I adore and respect. That’s all. I honestly believe Doutzen is one of the most stunningly beautiful people in the world. And I always will. I have told her that many times. Now you know.

Lindsay Ellingson

The third Victoria’s Secret Angel to depart the brand is Lindsay Ellingson, who is launching a cosmetics line called Wander Beauty that will debut on the QVC television channel in April 2015. Ellingson’s business partner Divya Gugnani graduated from the Harvard business school and used to work at QVC. Gugnani is the co-founder of Send the Trend, a NY based startup that was acquired by QVC in 2012.

Victoria’s Secret has confirmed the loss of Karlie Kloss with glowing words about the model.

‘Karlie and I met several months ago to discuss the many things she hoped to do in her life and career. As we talked, it became clear she would not have the time to fulfill her myriad commitments. Reluctantly, we agreed she would leave the brand at the end of her contract. Karlie is one of a kind, a very close friend, someone I truly admire and love. She is, without question, one of the best models ever. But she is an even better person. Her future is unlimited, and I am excited to see all the good she will do. Karlie Kloss will always be an Angel to me,’ Ed Razek, senior creative executive for Victoria’s Secret, said in confirming the Friday night rumor.
