Last night marked the end of an era for one Victoria’s Secret Angel: Adriana Lima, who broke down in tears as she announced her retirement from the fashion show that made her a household name.
The show paid a special tribute to the supermodel through a video montage of clips from her past iconic Victoria’s Secret moments, ending with a “thank you” message to Lima, before the model herself came out for her last walk.
From the clips, the 37-year-old is seen shedding tears as she reached the end of the runway while the crowd rose to their feet to cheer for the supermodel as she walked in her 19th and final VS show.
“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,” she had written in a post shared on Wednesday.
And now, she has moved on from the VS show.
