Adriana's final appearance comes after fellow model Georgia Fowler let it slip that Thursday would be her last time walking in the lingerie show after 19 years.
And soon after that, the mom-of-two confirmed the news on Instagram with a sweet montage of some of her past appearances.
The 37-year-old model who's been an Angel since 2000 wrote: '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.'
According to a tweet by InStyle magazine, a montage package dedicated to the brunette was played during the show in New York City, which described her as 'the greatest angel of all time'.
The Brazilian-born beauty has working with the lingerie giant since 1999 with her debut at their annual runway show at the age of 18.
In 2000, Adriana became an Angel; she has opened the 2003, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012 shows for Victoria's Secret.
The only show she was absent from was in 2009 because she was pregnant with her daughter Valentina.
She opened her fifth show in 2012, just two months after giving birth to her second child Sienna.
In 2008, Adriana was chosen to war the coveted Fantasy Bra, which was valued at $5 million featuring over 3.5K black diamond, over a hundred one carat white diamond, 34 rubies and two black diamond drops with 100 carats.
Two years later, Adriana was chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra again, this time with a $2 million bra.
She wore it for the third time in 2014 alongside fellow Brazilian model Alessandra Ambrosio; they each wore a $2 million bra.
Adriana has two children: Valentina, age eight, and Sienna, age six, with ex husband Marko Jaric.
The news of her retirement was accidentally let slip by Georgia Fowler.
She told Grazia that Adriana was taking a step back from the brand after 19 years.
'It will be [Adriana's] last year this year I think,' said Georgia, who is also walking the runway for Victoria's Secret in NYC.
'But she's done it for so many years and continues to look amazing on the catwalk and up against the younger girls.'
