The Hidden Side of Modeling on Instagram

Going back and forth, six-hour flights in order to get to paradise-like places, having a swimsuit prepared together with your winter clothing, not knowing if you’re going to end your week at the beach or in the snowy heights of some mountain.

Now another model, Adriana Lima, who works for Victoria’s Secret, has shown the world the less known side of modeling, and she has done it through Instagram.

I finished, went to airport, to comeback home to see my 2 princesses. Arriving there, my flight was over 3 hours delayed.(…) Just waked home 2am. Happy to be here. And wanted to share the face of a hard working model, and share that I am not the only one that works this hard. Thank you. (…) Love u all.”

It is a beautiful mixture of passion and hard work. However, it has the purpose of showing that modeling is not an easy task, and that you have to be tough to go through it.
