Supermodel Adriana Lima recently met up with L'Officiel magazine to reflect on her 25 years in the fashion industry, she also posed for the new cover shot by Marcus Cooper. The model takes us back in time to the good ol 90's where she landed her first modelling contract and moved into Eileen Ford's apartment.
"When I moved to New York, it was 1997 and I stayed at Eileen Ford’s home in New York City. I wasn’t in a model apartment because I was so young. I started doing castings right away. I remember my first week having castings all day, from 9 in the morning to 7 or 8 at night, running around with my book—these days we don’t carry that anymore. And that thing is heavy! I saw basically all the magazines, all the photographers; and I met you at that time. Your campaign and your fashion show were the biggest moments for me at that point. That opened so many doors for my career."
