The Victoria's Secret model thinks women are ageing in "a more beautiful way" now and at 35-years-old, Adriana hopes she is an inspiration for older women.

She said: "These days, women are ageing [in] such a more beautiful way. I'm here representing mature women with Victoria's Secret, so there is no pressure at all [to look good]. I believe that if I would go back to my younger times doing Victoria's Secret, I feel more beautiful right now."

However, Adriana admits she is a "very private person" but tries to share a little bit of all aspects of her life with her fans.

She added to CNBC's Street Signs: "People are watching you and you become their inspiration. I really just want to put a positive message and try to show the real values, the most important values in life out there ...

"I'm a very private person. But I try to share a little bit of everything, you know especially through social media: little moments with my children, things that I like, books that I read."

Meanwhile, Adriana previously admitted she would love to take part in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show until she is at least 40-years-old.

She said: "My goal is to do the fashion show till I'm 40, at least. Or [as long as] gravity is on my side."

And if the brunette beauty wasn't in the fashion industry, she admits she would have been liked to be a nun.

She said: "The church is in me - I always connect. If you're connected with the divine and always have pure intentions with everything you're doing, you're protected by the angels. I'm very spiritual. I believe in nature, I believe in energy, I believe in spirits."
