The always stunning Adriana Lima did a cover for Vogue Brazil (Feb 2012 addition). What do you think of these images?
Remember how Adriana revealed her strict diet and exercise regime leading up to the VS Fashion show? Here’s what she said in defence of her diet..
Victoria’s Secret angel Adriana Lima wants us all to know she doesn’t stick to her pre-show liquid diet and twice-daily workouts routine year-round.
“Everybody is talking about my crazy diet,” she told me backstage this morning as she got glammed for tonight’s catwalk.
The supermodel and hot mom recently admitted she sticks to liquids only ninedays before the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and stops drinking water for 12 hours before she hits the runway to drop the most weight.
But she defended the drastic measures, comparing herself to an athlete in training
“I know it’s very intense but…I just have an athlete’s mind and I appreciate doing this thing,” she told me. “It’s not that I do crazy diets throughout the year. I just do it for this particular thing. After this show, I become normal again!”
In fact, she said she didn’t work out quite as hard she normally does this time. “This year, even though my diet was intense, I took it a little bit easier on the working out so I won’t be as muscular,” she explained.
Adriana said after she’s done strutting her stuff tonight, she’ll celebrate with a big dinner at her favorite restaurant, Milos, with family and friends.
Fellow Angel Lily Aldrige told me she almost gave into carb temptation this morning at the buffet (yes, they actually had bagels backstage).
“I had scrambled eggs and one piece of turkey bacon,” she said. “On the plane here, I had a bagel with cream cheese. I thought about having one this morning, then I thought I should wait until tomorrow.”
