She first walked the Victoria's Secret ramp in 1999.

Since then, 37-year-old Adriana Lima has been making her mark on the VS ramp year after year.

This year as she walked the runway during the annual extravaganza, Adriana confirmed that this will be her final walk. She holds the title of the longest standing angel.

Dressed in an embellished lingerie, the model sported feathered wings, below, as she walked her last season.

Tears streaming down her face, she thanked the crowd, before closing the show.

Overwhelmed by her reaction, the crowd gave her a standing ovation.

'Dear Victoria, thank you for showing me the world, sharing your secrets, and most importantly not just giving me wings but teaching me to fly. And all the love to the best fans in the world. Love, Adriana,' Adriana wrote on Instagram as she bid farewell to the lingerie brand.
