Adriana Lima: going against the grain

Model Adriana Lima was recently spotted brazenly sporting an interesting look: she wore her designer one-piece outfit backwards:

The Brazilian bombshell stepped out Tuesday evening in an Alberta Ferretti gown. What made the look so jaw-dropping– besides her sky high legs, toned everything, and entrancing eyes, was that Lima dared to wear the one piece outfit in a way not originally intended by the designer: backwards.

However bold it was of her, it seemed to pay off, as it was well received. Although it’s hard to imagine anything worn by Lima being poorly received. She is five feet, ten inches tall with a twenty-four inch waist, after all.

She wasn’t the first to try this: Angelina Jolie also wore a Max Azria dress backwards, and her moxie was rewarded. Amanda Seyfried however was criticized for the same choice in a different dress.

Lima has built up quite the extensive portfolio, but is best known for her work as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Notable Achievements with VS include sporting the $5 million dollar Fantasy bra, and the $2 million Fantasy Bombshell Bra, as well as opening the VS fashion show five times, the last being less than two months after giving birth.

Lima is also a devout Catholic and attends mass every Sunday. She told GQ magazine that she believes sex is intended for after marriage, and remained a virgin until her own marriage to NBA player Marko Jaric (Serbia) in 2009. Lima also does extensive charity work, building homes and buying clothing for underprivileged children, for example.
