Adriana Lima, one of the most recognisable faces of Victoria’s Secret, may have just hung up her Angel wings for good!
The Victoria’s Secret Angel – or former Angel, by the looks of things – wrote a lengthy post on Instagram about how she no longer wants to take her clothes off “for an empty cause”, following a job offer that helped her come to her career-changing decision…
“I had received a call for the possibility of filming a sexy video of me to be posted and shared on social media,” she wrote on Instagram about what made her make this choice.
“Even though I have done many of this type, something had changed in me, when a friend approached me to share that she was unhappy with her body, then it made me think… that every day in my life, I wake up thinking, how do I look? Was I going to be accepted in my job?
“And in that moment I realised that majority of woman probably wake up every morning trying to fit in a stereotype that society/social media/fashion etc imposed.
“I thought, that’s not a way of living and beyond that… that’s not physically and mentally healthy, so I decided to make that change.
“I will not take off my clothes anymore for an empty cause.”
To prove how serious she is about her decision to quit VS for good, Adriana Lima seems to have unfollowed most of her fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels, as well as Ed Razek, the senior creative at Victoria’s Secret.
It also looks like she has unfollowed Victoria’s Secret itself.
