Adri­ana Lima hangs up wings; Filipino Kelsey Mer­ritt makes de­but

Sun.Star Cebu - - LIVE! - / MRL

Adri­ana Lima has be­come syn­ony­mous with lin­gerie brand Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret, be­ing its long­est-run­ning model. So when news broke that this year’s fash­ion show would be her last--the in­ter­net was in shock.

The Brazil­ian su­per­model shared the news through an In­sta­gram post with a heart­felt mes­sage to the brand and her fans and cel­e­brated this mile­stone with a Brazil­ian din­ner at Ber­im­bau Brazil­ian restau­rant on Thurs­day evening, as seen on her In­sta­gram Story.

Ac­cord­ing to Vogue, the fash­ion show pre­sented a mon­tage trib­ute to the VS vet­eran’s ca­reer, which made her tear up as she walked the run­way one last time with the crowd giv­ing her a stand­ing ova­tion.

Mean­while, the Philip­pines’ very own Kelsey Mer­ritt makes his­tory, be­ing the first Filipino ever to walk in the show. The stun­ner shared some snaps of the night on her In­sta­gram ac­count in­clud­ing a photo of her and Adri­ana stat­ing her ad­mi­ra­tion of the model, how she’s been an in­spi­ra­tion and that she got to walk on the show with her on Lima’s last day.

The Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret Fash­ion Show which took place on Nov. 8 is sched­uled to air on Dec. 2 on ABC.
