The transsexual parade otherwise known as the Victoria’s Secret lingerie show: part 6 - Adriana Lima
I had earlier largely avoided addressing Adriana Lima because of an ancestry confound, but there is no escaping addressing a big one like her. Adriana obviously does not look like a male-to-female transsexual, but as specified earlier, all Victoria’s Secret models do not have to look like transsexuals in order for the title to be justified.
People familiar with Adriana Lima but not having carefully examined her looks will recall a woman with a large [fake] bust, wide hips, thick lips and non-angular features, which altogether do not suggest masculinization, and those knowledgeable about the gay domination of the fashion business may wonder how an apparently feminine woman made it big as a fashion model. Therefore, this entry will address how feminine Adriana Lima is, starting from her early pictures.
Take a look at the following picture of Adriana as a teenager and see if you can sense some masculinization, specifically boyishness, notwithstanding her non-angular facial features and thick lips.
The following pictures may help one sense the masculinization if the previous picture is not helpful.
Readers who still cannot see the masculinization in Adriana Lima’s face should refer to the following pictures of a teenage girl, Marketa from glamour.cz, and then look carefully at the pictures above.
Marketa’s pictures in this entry and those of a teenage Adriana are unlikely to be confounded by a sharp age difference in favor of Marketa since glamour.cz reports that all its models are at least 18.
A young Adriana Lima didn’t just have a masculinized face; her physique was slender and boyish, too.
Marketa, although flatter-chested than Adriana, has a face, body proportions and backside that don’t give her a boyish look; Marketa looks like a girl.
Therefore, Adriana is certainly not an anomaly in terms of a supposedly feminine girl having made it big as a fashion model; minus her boyishness in teenagehood, there would have been no need to write this entry. After having lost her boyishness, Adriana has only be suitable for limited work such as lingerie modeling, but her high status has allowed her to model in other settings. A masculinized teenage girl is not normally going to grow into a feminine adult woman, and Adriana is no exception.
See the following two pictures where she is compared to Veronika Zemanova, also with breast implants, and note the striking difference with respect to approximating an hourglass figure, obviously because Veronika Zemanova is feminine.
Veronika Zemanova is so feminine that in a number of pictures her breasts look natural, and in clothing she would put to shame any Victoria’s Secret model.
On the other hand, whereas Adriana Lima has gained weight and become a woman, she has not acquired the femininity that should be required of high-profile lingerie models, even with breast implants.
Look at the following two pictures of a more mature Adriana Lima and see if you can sense the masculinization; the second picture should be an easy one. Also look at this picture and see if her face looks somewhat masculinized, and note her hairy and manly-looking forearms.
It would help to compare Adriana Lima to an all-natural feminine woman that would be ideal for lingerie modeling, and I was thinking about an appropriate woman when it occurred to me that I should select the woman that I would if I were Madeline, and the answer was a no-brainer, namely Gigi from Domai, shown below.
