Adriana Lima is pretty much a household name. The Victoria’s Secret model is well-known for her bikini bod and sexy lingerie shots, and is one of the best commercial models out there. Rarely do we see Adriana go high-fashion- but this season she made the transition with the help of Jason Wu! Adriana Lima opened his Fall 2014 runway show this week, clad in a covered-up suit- not what we’re used to seeing from her!
The last time she walked the runway was for Prada in Fall 2013, and in 2011 before that. Her turn on the Jason Wu runway definitely made headlines, though, so here’s hoping to more Adriana in high-fashion settings! It’s clear that the high-fashion world is sensing a demand for “commercial”-type models (like Kate Upton), and on the flip side commercial clients (like Victoria’s Secret) see the value of a high-fashion girl (Karlie Kloss!). I love that the lines between commercial and high-fashion models are blurring- it makes things more interesting!
Did you love Adriana on the JW runway as much as I did?
