Model Adriana Lima sat down with E! Online to talk about the much-awaited annual Victoria's Secret fashion show. The upcoming event will be held for the first time in the City of Lights on Dec. 5 and will air on CBS.
In an exclusive interview with E! Online, the Brazilian shared about her preparations for the upcoming show, what she felt working with younger models and how she misses her pals and fellow angels Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel.
The entertainment news website revealed this is Lima's 16th time to walk for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. A veteran on the runway, she dishes how she feels about sharing the catwalk with younger models like Kendall Jenner.
According to Lima, she enjoys working with the 21-year-old model whom she has already worked with before.
"I have worked with Kendall on runways before when we were in Europe, like Versace and also with Victoria's Secret. Kendall is very sweet and very nice, and it's always pleasant to work with someone like that," the 35-year-old model told E! Online. Lima also pointed out Jenner's personality and hard work to succeed as a model, qualities which she thinks will suit the latter as a Victoria's Secret model.
Lima and Jenner will also share the catwalk with other talented models. USA Today reported that the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show includes Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Jasmine Tookes, Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Elsa Hosk, Josephine Skriver, Martha Hunt, Stella Maxwell, Taylor Hill, and many more.
Despite being a veteran on the runway, the Brazilian model admits she feels more nervous every year. "[I am] one of the originals, [and yet] I get more and more nervous every year. I am just so happy and excited to be a part of this and be here in Paris...I haven't slept for a week because of all the nerves," Lima shared.
Aside from the experience itself, she is also excited that the show is being held in Paris for the first time. Lima reveals that she has not stopped working out since the last Victoria's Secret show. In addition to working out, she maintains a healthy lifestyle by drinking lots of water and brings a rose mist and lip balm to keep her skin vibrant.
Moreover, Lima also admits the two important aspects missing the show this year. Her two pals, Prinsloo and Swanepoel, who just welcomed their babies.
