The 2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show will be Adriana Lima's last. The VS Angel, who has repped the lingerie brand for 20 years, announced her retirement on Instagram this evening during the taping of this year's runway extravaganza.
Some sneaky guests who attended the taping took videos of her final trip down the VS catwalk, which was just as emotional as we expected. Instead of classic wings, Lima wears a a fan of skinny long, white feathers on her back, with a sheer sequined top, pale blue undies, and white feathered Brian Atwood heels.
She placed her hands on her heart and bowed her head in gratitude when she reached the end of the catwalk, and appeared to be fighting back tears as the crowd cheered her on.
In an earlier look from the show, Lima donned a black low-cut leotard and booties with a set of glittery moon and stars on her back.
Lima announced her retirement this afternoon with a heartfelt highlight reel of her past VS fashion show appearances. Today's show marks her 18th. Her first was in 1999.
"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 💖," she captioned the video.
