Adriana Lima may be known for strutting her stuff in her underwear, but even when she's clothed she thinks it's an important choice. 

The Victoria's Secret longest-running Angel insistst that the right lignerie is essential to your look, even when it can't be seen. 

She told PEOPLE magazine: "I love black leather pants and a good set of high-heel pumps. And you've got to have the right lingerie underneath."

The 32-year-old model has been working with Victoria's Secret since 1999 and every year on the runway she looks more confident and more sexy.

This year she loved the red and black lace bra which was modelled as part of the Parisian Nights theme at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2013.

The model says it is "perfect" for the forthcoming festive season and makes her feel good about herself.

"My favourite look is from ... 'Parisian Nights', the first look I wear. It's a very sexy push-up balconette bra all in lace and red. It's the perfect outfit for the holiday. I like to feel feminine ... I felt really sexy in it."

Adriana told the International Business Times: "It's about believing in yourself. It's about confidence, and how I get to the point, is you have to embrace who you are. That's what gives you confidence. Even if you have flaws or you make mistakes, it's OK."
