Adriana Lima wants long modelling career

Adriana Lima wants to model for at least another six years.

The Victoria's Secret Angel may have walked every catwalk for the brand since 2000 - except for 2009 when she was pregnant with her second child - but she fears her time in the nitty-gritty industry may be running out.

Speaking to Luxury London, she said: "I would like to continue for as long as possible. Not only at Victoria's Secret, but as a model for as long as my body will hold up. Hopefully I can pull up another six years - I'm 34 now - because I want to show the world there is a different beauty in mature women, especially after they have had kids."

However, the brunette beauty has admitted she still has insecurities and regularly has to tell herself she's beautiful.

She said recently: "The best beauty advice I've received is to highlight the things you appreciate about yourself. You shouldn't try to hide what you feel are imperfections with make-up; instead embrace them.

"Even though I am a model, I have days where I have to tell myself that I have to be the best version of myself mentally and it will show physically."
