Adriana Francesca Lima was born on June 12, 1981, in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.
The blue / gray-eyed Brazilian beauty can attribute her exotic good looks to her French, Portuguese, Native-American, and Caribbean heritage.
She's a spokeswoman for Victoria's Secret, Guess?, Armani, and XOXO, and is one of the most in demand runway models in the world.
She placed second in the Ford Supermodel of the World Contest at the age of 13. Three years later, she headed to New York, and signed with Elite Model Management.
