Victoria Secret's Fans Are Still in Denial About Adriana Lima's Retirement — but She's Leaving for a Good Reason

By Anna Quintana

End of an era! After nearly two decades, Adriana Lima is hanging up her angel wings at the 2018 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show — and fans are in denial. 

"I can't believe Adriana Lima is retiring. VSFS's not going to be the same without her. The new models look like zombies walking on the catwalk," one longtime viewer sadly tweeted. Another added, "There will never be another Adriana Lima, @KendallJenner please for the love of humanity RETIRE." 

So, seriously, why did Adriana decide to retire when she can still clearly rock the brand's iconic angel wings better than newbies like Kendall 0r Gigi and Bella Hadid? Well, it turns at the 37-year-old beauty is looking to shift her focus to more projects dedicated to female empowerment.
