Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima unveils her Madame Tussauds New York wax figure at Victoria’s Secret Herald Square.
You would think a Victoria’s Secret model would have a pretty comprehensive idea of how she looks after seeing the first thousand or so pictures of themselves in lingerie. But Adriana Lima tells [email protected] that coming face-to-face with her own wax work was a pleasant surprise.
“I look much better than I thought,” the Brazilian beauty told us at the unveiling of Madame Tussaud mannequin at the underwear giant’s Herald Square store on Monday.
The Adriana Lima replica will be moved to Madame Toussaud’s 42nd St. museum.
“It’s funny because when you look at yourself in the pictures of the job that you do; it’s like acting and you don’t really think about it,” she added, “It’s interesting to look at yourself for the first time. You finally realize what you look like. I did not think I looked like that.”
The replica, which used more than 250 of the model’s measurements, will soon be moved to Madame Toussaud’s 42nd St. museum.
The bombshell brunette also gave us her verdict on newbies Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, who walked in their first Victoria Secret Fashion Show last month.
“To be part of the Victoria’s Secret Show you have to have a certain character. You have to stand out, not only about beauty but also about personality,” she said, “They’re not afraid of being themselves. Even the younger girls that are just starting, they’ve got that down. It’s not easy, but they’re on point.”
JESSIE J’S PURPLE DAY
Singer Jessie J was so crazy about Broadway’s “The Color Purple” that she saw it twice on Saturday. “She loved the (matinee) show so much she came back to see the show again that night, bringing her friend, British actress and model Ruby Rose,” says one insider at the Jacobs Theater. It was a colorful reunion for Rose, who co-starred with “The Color Purple” actor Danielle Brooks on “Orange is the New Black” this season.

GIGI GOES ONE DIRECTION
Do we call them Gi-Zay? Model Gigi Hadid and former One Direction member Zayn Malik were caught red-handed leaving the West Hollywood hotspot The Nice Guy over the weekend. Rumors that the pair are dating had been making the rounds, but photos of the 20-year-old Victoria’s Secret model and 22-year-old former boy bander holding hands in the wee hours of the morning say it all. Hadid split with Joe Jonas earlier this month. Malik split with his girlfriend Perrie Edwards in August after dumping his band in March.
