Adriana Lima is back on the promotional trail once again.

The Brazilian-born beauty was in Schaumburg, Illinois today (December 8 ) to promote the $2-million Fantasy bra at Victoria’s Secret at the Woodfield Mall.

Dressed in a sexy red mini dress, Adriana hammed it up for cameras before sitting down to sign autographs for a couple hundred of her adoring fans.

Meanwhile, Adriana recently made headlines after she revealed that she feels sexier after pregnancy.

“Actually, I feel more confident, even more beautiful, more sexy after I gave birth to my daughter,” she said.

However, Adriana said, she was worried about getting back on the catwalk after gaining 50 pounds during her pregnancy.

“That’s all (the weight) I tell,” she said. “That’s all I can say. … I was very nervous about it. I say, ‘Am I going to be able to, you know, lose the weight? I don’t know how my body’s going to react.’ How fast I was going to lose the weight. It wasn’t an easy road. But, you know, I’m persistent. So it wasn’t easy to find, you know, an extra 30 minutes between Valentina’s naps to just run to the gym and you know, do my jumping rope and my boxing.”

They’re some of the most beautiful women in the world and tonight (November 10) the Angels of Victoria’s Secret joined forces at the Lexington Avenue Armory in New York City for its annual star-studded runway show.

Adriana Lima opened the show in a giant set of wings, making her return to the catwalk for the first time since giving birth to daughter Valentina a year ago.

Backstage she told reporters: “To be back in shape for the fashion show, it wasn’t easy for me. I really worked very hard.”

Adriana gained 50 pounds in her pregnancy. She has been hitting the gym seven days a week, she said. “I’m very proud of myself, I gotta say, because it wasn’t easy. Sometimes I would go to work out and I had, like, days of not sleeping.”

Adriana undoubtedly looked back in pre-pregnancy shape as she modelled the $2 million Bombshell Fantasy diamond bra she first debuted last month.

Designed in collaboration with Italian jeweller Damiani, and containing more than 3000 jewels, the piece took six craftsmen 1500 hours of work to complete.

On the catwalk, Adriana was joined by Selita Ebanks, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Lily Donaldson, Karolina Kurkova, Jessica Stam, Izabel Goulart, Isabeli Fontana, Erin Heatherton, Chanel Iman, Candice Swanepoel and fellow Brazilian beauty Alessandra Ambrosio.

Conspicuously absent was Heidi Klum, who bowed out of the Victoria’s Secret label recently.

“Obviously, it’s different,” said Alessandra, when asked about Heidi’s departure. Added Adriana: “I miss the way she walks and her laugh and her personality.”

Also missing in action? Mom-to-be Miranda Kerr, who is expecting her first child with actor Orlando Bloom.

Pregnant Doutzen Kroes, who married to DJ/producer Sunnery James earlier this week, was also understandably otherwise engaged.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is set to air on CBS on November 30.

Channeling her inner Marilyn Monroe, supermodel Adriana Lima revealed the $2 million bombshell fantasy bra at Victoria’s Secret, Herald Square in New York City today (October 20).

Weighing in at 142 carats of bejeweled exquisiteness, including 60 carats of white diamonds and 82 carats of topazes and sapphires.

Adriana will rock the luxe confection at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, airing November 30 on CBS.

Though she’s spent much of her life in front of the camera, supermodel Adriana Lima looked surprised and flattered to be photographed as she vacationed in Miami, Florida on Tuesday (September 21).

After tending to her Victoria’s Secret duties earlier in the day, the 29-year-old super hot mom hit the beach with a pal for an afternoon of sun and sand.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with Fox News, Adriana revealed that motherhood has not only made her feel sexier, but it’s also boosted her career!

“Being a mom is the greatest thing that could happen to me now. Now I know what unconditional love is… Valentina, she really taught me the real meaning of life and coming back (to modeling) after having her really helped me with my career,” Lima says. “I feel like a new person. More confident, more patient, more open to people.”

As for feeling sexier? “I feel at peace with myself – I can’t explain,” she says. “Sexiness is all about attitude. Sexiness for me is all about embracing yourself, embracing who you really are. Whatever it is, if you’re funny, if you’re clumsy, just embrace it and enjoy. And Valentina, she doesn’t even talk yet, and she teaches me all of these things. Embrace yourself, be who you really are, and that’s it. Enjoy life.”

Adriana Lima dropped by Aventura Mall in Miami today (September 21) to help celebrate the launch of Victoria’s Secret newest heavenly scent, Bombshell.

Joined by fellow beauty Lily Aldridge, the Brazilian-born bombshell signed autographs, posed for photos and later met with fans who had lined up all day in hopes of meeting their favourite Victoria’s Secret Angel. Some even got the chance to get a Bomshell makeover!

Meanwhile, in a new interview with the Miami Herald, Adriana opens up about how her life has changed since becoming a Victoria’s Secret model.

“I get recognized a lot more than I used to. As a model, you are transformed for each photo shoot so people don’t realize it’s you when you are dressed down or with little makeup on,” she says. “But Victoria’s Secret focuses on each model as an individual and really lets our personalities come through in our photo shoots and media appearances. Now people see me on the street and know my name.”

A few more highlights from her interview:

Adriana on the most enjoyable part of her job: “I love working with everyone who is part of the process — from stylists, producers, other models and hair and makeup artists. Everyone has fun together and all of the models get a chance to become friends. I also love that my schedule can be flexible now that I have a child.”

Adriana on whether it is strange to see her pictures in the catalog next to fragrances: “Not really. Fragrances are a huge part of sexiness and that’s what VS is about — finding and embracing sexiness in your daily life. It only makes sense to offer scents that help you get into a certain mood to go along with the bras and panties you are wearing — whether it’s your daily lingerie or for a special occasion.”

Adriana on working with the other models: “We all get along really well. When you work 14 hour days together, you can get into personal conversations and have fun. We have to feel comfortable to stand next to each other and play off each other for the cameras.”

Adriana on her fitness secret: “I work out nearly every day. Especially after I had [daughter Valentina, now 10 months], I really wanted to focus on being healthy and being good to my body. I discovered boxing and it has really empowered me. I love going to work out now. It gets out aggression and my trainer really shakes it up so I don’t get bored.”
