Now, onto Coffee Talk…

In the last edition of Coffee Talk, we were discussing how Alessandra Ambrosio was hanging up her wings. Now, it seems Adriana Lima may also be leaving Victoria’s Secret? We can’t say for certain, but here’s what the VS alum said on Instagram.

“I had received a call for the possibility of filming a sexy video of me to be posted and shared in social media. Even though I have done many of this type, something had changed in me, when a friend approached me to share that she was unhappy with her body, then it made me think…. that everyday in my life, I wake up thinking, how do I look? Was I going to be accepted in my job? And in that moment I realized that majority of woman probably wake up every morning trying to fit in a stereotype that society/socialmedia/fashion etc. imposed…. I thought that’s not a way of living and beyond that…. that’s not physically and mentally healthy, so I decided to make that change….. I will not take of my clothes anymore for a empty cause…..💜✨ #Embraceyouself #natureisbeautiful #naturalissexy #LOVEYOU 💜✨”

The model continued.

“Likening himself to ‘the janitor in the White House,’ James has had the most privileged and special access, and his photographs tell the stories that happen behind the scenes of this global cultural phenomenon. His special relationship with the talent and the brand has allowed him to capture the frantic energy and excitement from backstage, where no other cameras have been allowed to go.”
