MODEL ADRIANA LIMA

BRAZIL ISN’T SOME STEREOTYPE OF BEACH BEAUTIES AND HARD BODY GUYS WITH GENETIC, YEAR-LONG TANS. IT’S A CULTURE THAT INVITES CHIC DESIGN AND EXPERIMENTAL AESTHETICS. HERE IS SUPERMODEL ADRIANA LIMA AND TWO OF BRAZIL’S TOP MALE MODELS IN SOME OF SUMMER’S MOST GRAPHIC AND AGGRESSIVE LOOKS

Adriana Lima needs no introduction. Hers is one of the most recognizable faces in modeling, and she very well might be Brazil’s most cherished export. We sat this global ambassador of beauty down for a chat about her heritage and her superpowers of love.   

Tell us a bit about your Brazilian background, where are you from and when/how did you leave? 
ADRIANA LIMA I was born in the capital of bahia, salvador, and I left my home fifteen years ago.

What is the Brazilian perspective on art and fashion, and how do you see it as different from the American or New York perspective?
AL
I think Brazilian art is very futuristic. One example is Oscar Niemeyer, the biggest Brazilian architect who built the most important monuments, museums, and parts of the city of Brasilia. He is over 100 years old and he’s still alive and creating. Brazilian fashion is getting big around the world. Carlos Miele is my favorite designer—he knows how to create clothes for women in an elegant and sexy way.  

How often do you return to Brazil?
AL
I return to Brazil at least three times a year.  

If you had a superpower, what would it be?
AL I consider myself a hero. Why? Because of the love my husband and I created together: Our daughter, Valentina. There is nothing more powerful than the ability to create life through love.  

How do you feel the Brazilian spirit in your everyday life?
AL
I am very blessed and proud to be a Brazilian. I believe we are more connected with nature, and we smile a lot.
