“Dear Victoria, Thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the ❤️ to the best fans in the 🌎! Love, Adriana 💖,” she captioned the video of her best moments on the sexiest runway!

“I think this year is going to be the highlight of my career,” Lima told People regarding her departure. “This has been my 18th fashion show and I am still as excited as I was from the first day. I always love to be on runways and being part of the Victoria’s Secret show. [It’s] my favorite to do.”

Last year Lima told People magazine that she would like to hit her 20th show before she quits. “I plan to be at 20. Two more years. Maybe more, I don’t know. It’s nature. I’m working out, I’m being healthy, so let’s see how the body is going to turn out. But I enjoy it. So let’s say 20.”

As she walked the runway for the last time Ariana received a well deserved standing ovation for her final walk down the VS catwalk, which made her super emotional, as she was fighting the tears back. She wore a white feathered fan-like piece on her back with a sheer sequin top, pale blue underwear, and matching feathered Brian Atwood heels.

Lima’s exit follows that of Alessandra Ambrosio, another iconic Victoria’s Secret Angel, who left after last year’s fashion show in Shanghai.
