42-year-old Brazilian model and ex-Victoria's Secret angel Adriana Lima became the main star of the new issue of Harper's Bazaar Arabia magazine. On the cover of the glossy magazine, the model appeared in a very unusual look: in a black outfit from Roberto Cavalli, a flat hat, with a Cartier bracelet and spectacular makeup with wide arrows.

In an interview, Lima spoke about her age and self-acceptance: "I started modeling at 16, but I'll never be 16 again. I am 42 years old and I am the happiest person in my entire life; the most self-satisfied. I accept my age and I won't change for anyone."

The Brazilian also said that her hobbies, such as boxing and meditation, have faded into the background since she became a mother: "Today my meditation is to go to the bathroom for five minutes, lock myself in there and pray that my children don't knock on the door and ask me for something."

Adriana also said that she was not at all embarrassed by criticism. And recently, a flurry of criticism fell on the mother of many children after her appearance at the premiere of the film "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes", which took place in Los Angeles. The model decided to respond to the haters who, after her next appearance, accused the girl of abusing fillers and facial plastic surgery, and showed a photo without makeup.
