Adriana Lima debuts sunglasses line

Her eyes are up here.

Adriana Lima, once a star strutter on the now-cancelled Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, is shifting focus from her figure to her face.

The Brazilian model — and prescription-glasses wearer; who knew? — tells Women’s Wear Daily that she has a new collection with eyewear brand Privé Revaux.

Featuring four styles in multiple colorways, the shades, which cost $39.95 each, are named after important women in Lima’s life: her daughters Valentina and Sienna, her grandmother Julia and, well, Lima herself (a pair called the Panther is a nod to one of Lima’s modeling nicknames).

The lingerie model says she’s grateful for the opportunity to grow her career off the runway.

“I never would have thought as a mature woman, I could still be in the business,” she tells WWD. “I’m happy that the world” — fashion and otherwise — “is embracing women in their different stages.”

If the lingerie model has her way, this foray into four-eyed fashion is just the beginning. Lima tells WWD that she hopes to launch her own brand of lacy underthings, as well as a skincare line.

Her capsule collection of shades drops on Feb. 14 on Privé Revaux and Kohls.
