Adriana Lima has announced that she will stop showing the body for "empty causes". In a message published in Instagram, the Brazilian model points the finger at the pressure that society imposes on women.
She is one of the most valuable "angels" of the North American brand Victoria's Secret and went to parade in "lingerie" which made her career in the world of fashion. Now, Adriana Lima has put an end to "undressing for empty causes." In a letter published on Instagram, the Brazilian top model, 36, said that "women can not continue to live in a world with superficial values" and wants to contribute to that change.
Adriana Lima says that the profession she embraced at age 15, when she came second in the Supermodel of the World, forced her to "look a certain way." "I'm tired of impositions. Women can not continue to live in a world with superficial values. It is not fair and, more than that, it is not physically and psychologically healthy that society asks us to be, to behave and to appear. I want to change this. On behalf of my grandmother, my mother, and all the predecessors who were labeled, pressured and misunderstood, "she writes.
In a comment accompanying her ad, which is the fourth highest paid model in the world, according to Forbes' recent list, explains that what made her "think" was a friend who told her she was "dissatisfied" with your body. " "The moment I realized that most women wake up every morning trying to fit into the stereotype that society, social media, fashion, etc., have imposed ... I have concluded that this is no way to live.(...) I will not undress again for empty causes. "
Adriana Lima, mother of Valentina, eight, and Sienna, five (the result of her marriage to Marko Jarić, completed last year), ends the text with an appeal and a request: "Let's change the world. Sorry if I exceeded the limits. "
