All agree that there's an old saying, 'Lies, damned lies... and statistics' but opinions differ about where the phrase originates. Some attribute it to the British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. Others credit the American humorist, Mark Twain. As most reference sources give the quote to Twain, it would seem the statistical evidence points here. Which is ironic really, given the words themselves! Today we must ask how, in your life, a 'balance of probability' is being twisted into an indisputable pronouncement. Is that fair?
At the age of 15, the brunette beauty won a Supermodel of Brazil competition, which gained her the attention of Elite Model Management. At 16, she came runner-up in a Supermodel of the World competition, and later signed to Elite.
She began to model for magazines such as Vogue, ELLE, and Harper's Bazaar, and in 2000 became a GUESS? girl.
Adriana has also walked the catwalk for Armani, Versace, BCBG and Louis Vuitton.
In 1999 the model took part in her first runway presentation for underwear brand Victoria's Secret, and in 2000 the company offered her a coveted position as a Victoria's Secret Angel. Adriana has gone on to star in every show since, and in 2003, 2007, 2008, and 2010 she opened the show.
She became a spokeswoman for cosmetics brands Maybelline in 2003 and remained their representative until 2009.
She married her long-term partner, Serbian NBA player Marco Jaric, in 2009 - and the pair have two children together. They announced their separation in 2014.
