Adriana Lima is a bundle of nerves before she hits the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
The Brazilian supermodel is gearing up to walk the catwalk at the American lingerie company’s annual spectacle, which is being held in Paris on Wednesday night (30Nov16).
In spite of this year’s show being her 16th appearance for the label, she admits to feeling anxious for the glitzy event.
“(I am) one of the originals, (and yet) I get more and more nervous every year,” she told E! News. “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.”
The mother-of-two jetted to Paris on the weekend (26-27Nov16), in order to prepare for the show. And she cannot be more excited to be spending time in the City of Light.
“I get to go international with the show,” said the brunette beauty. “I love where it’s being held this year, and it’s so beautiful. I can’t wait to see it all come together with the make-up, costumes and performers!”
The 35-year-old is more than happy to strut her stuff next to younger Victoria’s Secret stars, including the likes of Stella Maxwell, Elsa Hosk as well as Gigi and Bella Hadid.
Of course, Adriana is also more than happy to share the runway with Kendall Jenner.
“I have worked with Kendall on runways before when we were in Europe, like Versace and also with Victoria’s Secret,” she dished. “Kendall is very sweet and very nice, and it’s always pleasant to work with someone like that.”
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is broadcast around the world from 5 December (16).
