Victoria’s Secret angel and supermodel, Adriana Lima, has spoken out against nudity saying, “I will not take off my clothes anymore for an empty cause.”
Lima opened up on Instagram about the pressures of the industry and her realization that she isn’t required to take off her clothes for her career and has every right to take control and say, “No.”
The Brazilian model’s decision came after being asked to film a “sexy video” of herself and then share it on social media. Lima said after discussing it with a friend, she realized she was tired of constantly examining her appearance and thinking about if it was acceptable for her career.
This change is not only for herself but for her grandmother, mother, and daughters. The post that Lima shared on Instagram stated, “I have my own things/insecurities too, I am not afraid anymore to express them, they are a part of me.” By showing fans her more vulnerable, human side, we can see that she is just like anyone else and struggles with her own insecurities and internal battles.
Lima’s job as a Victoria’s Secret angel requires a lot of strutting around in minimal clothing, so we are interested to see if this will impact her job at all.
