Earlier this month she announced her split from husband Marko Jarić after five years of marriage.
But ironically Adriana Lima looked every inch the blushing bride as she attended the Chopard Backstage Dinner & Afterparty at the Cannes Film Festival in France on Monday.
Wearing a strapless white dress, Lima, 32, could have been on her way down the aisle, although the daring split in front was a little racier than can be seen at most weddings.

While the party was sponsored by Chopard, Adriana made sure she was decked out in jewels.
Dangling diamond earrings and a huge matching choker completed her eye catching look.

Her upbeat appearance shows she is clearly doing her best to put her sad split behind her.
Their break-up was a shock as the couple had not previously hinted at any marriage troubles.
‘After long and careful consideration, we have decided to separate after five years of marriage,’ the couple said, in a joint statement to People.

Adriana, 32, met Marko, 35 in 2006 at a party and they got engaged two years later, marrying on Valentine’s Day 2009 in a private civil ceremony in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
The model famously remained a virgin until her wedding day, previously telling GQ magazine: ‘Sex is for after marriage.
‘[Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me.’

The couple were last seen pictured together in February, at a yacht party in Miami, Florida, where they have their family home.
Adriana has been modelling since she was a teenager, winning Ford’s Supermodel of Brazil model search aged 15 and coming second place in the Ford Supermodel of the World contest in 1996, after which she signed with Elite Model Management and moved to New York City.
She has appeared on the covers of magazines including Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, GQ, Arena, Vogue, V and Esquire, and since 2000 she has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel, making her one of the top models for the lingerie brand.

Marko started his professional career in 1996 and notably became the only player to win back-to-back Italian Championships on two different teams, in 2000 with Fortitudo Bologna and in 2001 with Virtus Bologna.
He moved to the US to play for the Los Angeles Clippers in 2002, and has since played in teams including the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Memphis Grizzlies. He was waived from the Brooklyn Nets for the current season and is rumoured to be retiring.
Speaking about her marriage in 2009, Lima said: ‘I never saw myself being married. But after I met him, everything changed. I knew he was the one and I could see myself married with him and with a big family.’

However, the split announcement came earlier this month leaving fans shocked.
But Adriana did have some support at the Chopard party on Monday as she was surrounded by her model pals.
And continuing the wedding theme, their floor length dresses looked just like bridesmaid gowns.
Liu Wen grabbed attention in a light blue frock which showed off her slim figure.
