Amazing Gal of the Month - Smartasses Magazine

Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentKristin Kreuk Bio – Smartasses Magazine Adriana Francesca Lima (born June 12, 1981) is a Brazilian model. Lima is of Native-Brazilian, African-Brazilian, Portuguese, French, and Caribbean descent. In 2002, she became engaged to singer Lenny Kravitz, but less than a year later, the engagement was called off. Lima married Serbian NBA player Marko Jarić on St. Valentine’s Day 2009 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The couple has two daughters, Valentina and Sienna. On May 2, 2014, Lima and Jaric announced their separation after five years of marriage.

Lima never thought about being a model, although she had won many beauty pageants in elementary school. However, she had a friend at school who wanted to enter a modeling contest and didn’t want to enter alone, so Lima entered with her. Both sent in pictures, and the contest sponsor soon asked Lima to come out for the competition. Soon after, at the age of 15, she entered and finished in first place in Ford’s Supermodel of Brazil model search. She subsequently entered the 1996 Ford Supermodel of the World contest and finished in second place. Three years later, Lima moved to New York City and signed with Elite Model Management. After acquiring representation, her modeling portfolio quickly began to expand and she appeared in numerous international editions of Vogue and Marie Claire. As a runway model, Lima has walked the catwalks for designers such as Vera Wang, Christian Lacroix, Emanuel Ungaro, Giorgio Armani, Fendi, Ralph Lauren and Valentino, among others. She became a GUESS? girl and a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2000, and became a spokesmodel for Maybelline cosmetics from 2003 to 2009. Lima’s 2008 solo Victoria’s Secret’s Super Bowl XLII ad was the single most-seen ad of the game, watched by 103.7 million viewers. In February 2012, Lima became the only celebrity to ever star in two Super Bowl commercials in one game, when she starred in ads for Teleflora and Kia Motors, the latter of which was watched by more than 200 million viewers and sent Kia’s sales to their highest mark since the design debuted. A teaser of the commercial was released in movie theaters in January before the game. It is believed to be the first time a Super Bowl commercial premiered in movie theaters.

Lima’s first acting role was in 2001’s The Follow, a short film starring Clive Owen. She also appeared with her fellow Angels in a guest spot playing herself in the series How I Met Your Mother in November 2007. In 2008, Lima appeared on the American television series Ugly Betty, where she played herself and made friends with the series’ title character.

Lima does charitable work helping with an orphanage, Paths of Light, where she helps with construction to expand the orphanage, and buys clothes for poor children in Salvador, Bahia. Lima also once appeared on Var mısın? Yok musun?, the Turkish version of Deal or No Deal?, where her prize money went to a hospital in Istanbul for children fighting leukemia. In 2012, she came in fourth on the Forbes top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $7.3 million in one year. She also appears in the book, A Second Decade of Guess? Images.

Why we think she’s hot:

Adriana Francesca Lima. Sultry, smoky, perfection-in-the-imperfections – no matter how you describe her, Lima transcends the mere pages of your latest lingerie catalog. She has become more than just a hot model, or even a supermodel. Truth be told, she is both a household name and nothing less than an icon of the 21st Century. When you think of Victoria’s Secret, you think of Lima. And when you think of Lima… well, you already know the answer to that.
