Adriana Lima: 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Runway

Seeing how Adriana gave birth to her second child, a baby girl, just less than two months ago, people are questioning the merits of whether it’s right for Adriana to hit the runway so quickly? We’ll answer with a very simple question: Why the fuck not? It’s 2012 and Adriana’s filthy rich, so having nannies, nutritionists, & personal trainers leaves ample amount of time for Adriana to spend with her newborn daughter. Just because she’s a woman who gave birth recently doesn’t mean she has to quit her job & sit at home. I feel like if she’s willing to create a balance, then more power to her! The fact that she made her comeback so damn quick simply confirms her insane passion for modeling!! Plus, the profession is such that she needs to work now while she’s still marketable b/c who the hell wants to see a 40-year-old catwalking down the runway wearing lingerie? Adri needs to wring each & every penny while she can!

Anyway, just in case you missed it, make sure you check out backstage pics of Adriana getting dolled-up before hitting the runway.
