Adriana Lima embraces her "sexy imperfections".

The 30-year-old Victoria’s Secret model does not find her flaws unattractive.

Adriana is empowered by what she believes are her physical shortcomings.

“I think to feel sexy you should embrace everything about yourself, sometimes even laugh about your mistakes,” Adriana told OK! magazine.

“I think it’s so attractive, your imperfections, if you laugh about it and don’t get insecure. I think that’s what being sexy is about.”

Adriana finished taping the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show earlier this month. She hopes to grace the runway for the lingerie company for several years in the future.

“My plan is to be the longest-ever Victoria’s Secret Angel walking the runway. So hopefully I can be there until I’m 50 with my wings!” she laughed.

Adriana is not a fan of being nervous before sashaying on the catwalk.

A peaceful state of mind is essential before she struts.

“I get into the Zen zone. I listen to my music, and I meditate,” Adriana explained. “Right before I walk onto the runway, I put my perfume on. This year, Sexy Little Things Noir goes well.”

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show premieres in the US on Tuesday November 29.
