As the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show quickly approaches, runway veteran Adriana Lima shares her thoughts on fashion, feeling confident, and working as one of the industry’s top models.
Star: Do you feel like there’s pressure in modeling at a certain age?
Adriana: “No I feel great. I’m 34 years old, I have two kids and I feel great at this age. I feel like women are even more beautiful when they get older. It’s something special. You learn new experiences through life and you get more confident. That’s something that you learn with age and time. Also, I’m very happy that I’m still here and part of the show and, at the age that I am, showing that women with two kids can pull it off.”
Star: When you’re not here working what do you put on to feel sexy?
Adriana: “I always have something on to feel sexy, like lingerie. That’s how everything starts because it’s always on your mind. You build that mysterious vibe the minute you dress up. You walk around like you feel great, you feel tall, you feel beautiful and sexy.”
Star: When you’re in your underwear, do you have a trick to make yourself feel confident?
Adriana: “It’s all about feeling comfortable. Whatever that is. If you like to wear cotton, a push up bra, or cover up, that’s the secret. You need to feel comfortable.”
Star: What’s one fashion rule that’s meant to be broken?
Adriana: “All the rules are meant to be broken, are you kidding me? You don’t want to be the same, you want to be unique.”
Star: Is there one rule that you’ve broken the boundaries with?
Adriana: “I always break the rules – all of them. If you say, ‘This is what you’re supposed to do,’ I will do the opposite.”
Make sure to tune in to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on Dec. 8 at 10/9 Central on CBS.
