After two decades in impossibly high heels and the wings of an angel, Adriana Lima is ready to retire from her Victoria's Secret duties. With 18  runway shows under her bejeweled belt, she took her final steps on the glitter-strewn runway tonight. Before the swan song, she let her Instagram followers know that this would be her last turn on the catwalk, writing, "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." To commemorate 20 years of strutting with the best of them, here are Lima's best looks.

"I think this year is going to be the highlight of my career," Lima told People. "This has been my 18th fashion show and I am still as excited as I was from the first day. I always love to be on runways and being part of the Victoria’s Secret show. It is my favorite to do."

During this year's show, there was an entire segment dedicated to Lima and her longstanding history with the brand. During her pass in the Constellations segment, she swapped out her signature wings for a crescent moon.

Speaking of signature wings, here's the Angel in her natural habitat: stomping down the runway.

In 2013, Lima showed wore a bedazzled biker jacket and a matching cap. The high-cut panties leave little to the imagination, but the one thing that doesn't change? The wings.

Lima's a team player, too, even though she's arguably the model that's most synonymous with Victoria's Secret. Here she is alongside fellow Angel Alessandra Ambrosio, who retired last year.

Proving she's a versatile model, here she is in some unconventional wings.

Lima's signature walk includes plenty of attitude, a kiss and a wink to the camera at the end of the runway, and plenty of showboating.

Last year, she stole the show in this ensemble, which featured feathers, bling, and plenty of skin.
