Female Celebrities You Didn’t Expect to be Really(Really) Tall

Adriana Lima | 5’10”

Since 2003, this 5’10” beauty has been a Maybelline spokesmodel and has appeared in Super Bowl commercials. Adriana Lima’s career began when she was thirteen years old, when she won first place in a Ford Supermodel of Brazil search, and she went on to win second place in the 1996 Ford Supermodel of the World contest. Lima moved to New York City shortly after her “victory” and signed with Elite Model Management.

However, Lima’s talent and career do not end there; she also enjoys acting. Her first film credit was in the 2001 film The Follow, and she later appeared in two CBS sitcoms, How I Met Your Mother and The Crazy Ones. Lima was recently named one of the Victoria’s Secret Perfect 10 models at the highly anticipated Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
