After 20 years of walking the runway as one of Victoria's Secret's most iconic models, Adriana Lima has announced that tonight's Victoria Secret Fashion Show will be her last.
Just a few hours after she posted an emotional Instagram tribute to the brand to announce her retirement, Lima walked the runway one last time for the show's filming (which will air December 2).
In the video below, Lima struts down the VS catwalk in an all-white bodice with feathery wings. When she reaches the end of the runway, she clearly gets emotional, hiding her face in her hands for a moment and blowing one final Victora's Secret Angel kiss to the cameras.
As the show films twice, she did the same walk during the first afternoon taping and got equally emotional:
So what's next? Backstage, the model told People that she plans to shift her focus to philanthropic efforts, particularly those that serve women.
"I’m looking forward to [supporting] women and being connected to different projects which support women around the world," she told the outlet. "[That's] my future from now on, but I am still happy that I am part of Victoria’s Secret this year."
