Sun, sea, sand and luxury comfort – what’s not to love about Dubai? Well according to model Adriana Lima, it’s an amazing place to be with the Brazilian beauty revealing in an exclusive interview she feels at home when in the UAE. Fin doubt what else she had to say…
The supermodel caused a stir in Dubai last month when she visited the region to promote Marc Jacobs’ new fragrance, Decadence, for which she is the face of.
The Victoria’s Secret model brought some sultry sass to the campaign which is more seductive than Marc’s line of Daisy scents. To celebrate the launch of the fragrance, here’s our Adriana Lima interview in which she takes about her love for the region and her most extravagant life experiences.
On working with Marc Jacobs
Shooting the campaign was a great experience. There was sexy mood lighting, I was wearing a silky black Marc Jacobs dress, and there were beautiful flowers next to vintage fragrance bottles. It felt vintage and modern at the same time. It was very decadent!
On admiring Marc Jacobs
Marc is such a creative genius that you just have to enjoy the ride when you work with him. It’s fun to let him take you outside of your comfort zone. You never know what he will come up with and you’re never surprised that he’ll always surprise you. Working on the Marc Jacobs show was also one of the biggest achievements in my careers. I am definitely a fan of his creations. He has his own vision.
On the most decadent thing she’s ever done
I went on a date to a private island!
On loving the UAE
I love this city, I connect with it because it’s like my hometown, the weather is always warm and the people have been so welcoming nice. I feel comfortable here.
On her greatest life lesson
Believe in yourself and be strong. Don’t let anyone push you down.
On her best beauty advice
One of the best pieces of beauty advice that I have received is to try to accentuate your beauty. You shouldn’t try to hide what you feel are imperfections with layers of make-up. Instead highlight what you appreciate about yourself.
Her advice to model hopefuls
Even though I am a model, I have days where I don’t feel beautiful, and those are the days when I have to give myself a pep talk and tell myself that no matter what, I have to be the best version of myself mentally and it will show physically.
