In honor of the World Cup kicking off this week, for today’s edition of our favorite guessing game, Throwback Thursday: Celebrity Childhood Photo Edition, we’re sharing this early photo of a world-famous beauty you’ve probably seen strutting her stuff on the runway and TV. Can you guess who she is?
Hint: The location of the 2014 World Cup is also her home country! And today also happens to be her 33rd birthday.
Give up? This young, curly-haired princess grew up to be …
Before she became a Victoria’s Secret angel and one of the most recognizable supermodels in the world, Adriana was a studious, shy young girl growing up in the suburbs of Brazil dreaming of one day becoming a pediatrician.
But life rarely works out the way we plan, and so Adriana ended up pursuing an entirely different path: stunning us with her gorgeous beauty in print ads, commercials, movies, and more. Her latest gig? Working on converting Americans over to a love of futbol as a World Cup Ambassador.
Happy birthday, Adriana—and happy Throwback Thursday, everyone!
