Backstage at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2018 - Best Photos Revealed!

Rumors are flying after she posted a recent message on Instagram encouraging women to love their bodies, finishing with the statement: "I will not take off my clothes anymore for an empty cause".

Backstage before the show, the 37-year-old Lima, a mother of two, and other models lounged in short black robes bedazzled with gold stars.

After finding out earlier this year that she'd been given her wings from the iconic lingerie brand, Duckie took to the big stage like, well, a duck to water.

"It was better than I could have imagined", she says.

After 19 years, 20-something wings, three Fantasy Bras and a runway reign that will go down in the history books, Adriana Lima is officially retiring from Victoria's Secret.

The 37-year-old model has been a staple of runway shows for the lingerie giants since 1999, but after nearly two decades with the brand, it was announced during the taping of the 2018 show on Thursday that she will be retiring from the runway. Rising models Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Winnie Harlow, and Gigi Hadid also walked during last night's exclusive event.

Last year, the show was held in Shanghai as the US brand sought to push into China's growing lingerie market.

Victoria's Secret screened a montage of her iconic moments on its catwalk over the years and described her as "the greatest angel of all time".

The fashion show will air on ABC on Sunday, December 2.

She said: "All of them".

"It's interesting because I've been pretty open with my experience with Hashimoto's Disease, my thyroid problem", she stated.
