This morning, bombshell Adriana Lima set the paparazzi scrambling at the Victoria's Secret store in Herald Square. Chic managed to get an interview with the impossibly leggy brunette, who vamped it up in a white shift dress, Louboutins, and shiny red nails. We got her take on the new Showstopper Bra Collection and her favorite TV show.
What’s been the biggest showstopping moment working for Victoria’s Secret so far?
I have a lot of showstopping moments from VS. I was talking about my first VS fashion show. It was in 1998 on Wall Street. That was my first showstopping moment because it was my first VS show, I was backstage with Stephanie Seymour, Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks. I never thought I would be a part of this and there I was. It was a dream come true. Also, career wise after that I became who I am today because of VS. The first time I opened a show, that was a showstopping moment. The VS commercial with Michael Bay where I open the fridge and I spill the milk- I love that scene. I think that was my showstopping moment. When I saw it I could not believe it. Just look around at all the pictures; there are plenty of showstopping moments!
Speaking of shows, what’s your favorite TV show?
I watch series a lot since I travel on the plane. I don’t have time to follow TV because of my baby, but series I do watch a lot. There is a few: I watch Mad Men. Ah yes, The Good Wife! I lovvveee The Good Wife, it’s really good. That’s my thing now.
What are you obsessed with right now?
I am obsessed with this showstopper collection, not only because I’m promoting it today. It’s the perfect bra for every woman. Once you feel confident wearing that tight top, you can get out knowing you’re going to be covered where exactly you need.
Who are you named after?
You know, I don’t know! You have to go to my mother to ask her. I really don’t know how they came up with my name.
Do people mispronounce your name a lot?
Yes, but that doesn’t bother me. It’s not important. How they pronounce is not important to me.
Brazil is hosting the next World Cup for soccer- do you have a crush on anyone on the Brazilian National Team?
I have a crush on this great basketball player from Serbia. I’ve been watching him for a few years, (husband) Marko Jaric. That’s my deepest crush, nobody else.
How's your daughter?
She definitely changed myself in a great way. I feel more beautiful, I’m a different person. And she loves clothes! Bras and lingerie! You have to see when she gets in my closet she goes, “Oh wow, nicccceeee!” It’s so cute. She has a few words when she talks. She can say “Come, go, water, nice, pretty.” English, Portuguese and Serbian! She’s already 21 months and she speaks more languages than I do! Can you believe?
