When you find the right job, why leave it? That’s supermodel Adriana Lima’s motto as she prepares her 16th Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

“I’m very passionate about it from the minute I go to the fitting to when I walk in the show, I give it my all, even before I arrive there, with the workouts that I do almost every day,” Lima told ELLE of her VS experience. “I remember watching the fashion show when I started modeling and it’s every girl’s, every model’s dream to be part of it. All the biggest supermodels have been part of the show and I never thought I’d be part of it.”

And it certainly won’t end any time soon: The 35 year-old model said that age won’t stop her. “For my part, I would do everything to be here until 40— yes I do, and I will!”

Lima is one of Victoria’s Secret’s most loyal models, having walked in 16 of their 22 shows since 1995.
