Gisele Bundchen

Gisele Bundchen Gisele can be considered queen of the Brazilian supermodel explosion that started over a decade ago. She helped paved the way for names such as Alessandra, Adriana, Ana, and Izabel. Gisele is one of the top grossing supermodels of all time and her Brazilian model friends are right behind her.

This Brazilian beauty supermodel standing at 5'11" is the most sought after supermodel in the industry today. One of the leading fashion magazines has credit Gisele for the return of the sexy model, something that was lost since the supermodels of the late 80's.

Gisele's road to the top of the supermodel world happened all by chance. She was spotted by an agent from the Elite Modeling Agency while eating a big mac at a Sao Paulo McDonald's while on a trip from her home town of Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.
Despite her father's lack of approval of the career choice, he allowed her to move to Sao Paulo at the young age 14. While in Sao Paulo, Gisele entered the "Elite Look Modeling Competition" in 1995 and her career took off faster than a backstage pass to a
Victoria's Secret fashion show.

Now the girl that was once teased by classmates, with nickname Olive Oil, from the Popeye the Sailor cartoons for being so thin and tall, was soon living the life of a supermodel. She was off traveling to exotic locations for photo shoots, walking the runways for today's top high fashion designers, becoming a Victoria's Secret angel, and appearing on cover after cover of fashion magazines.

Gisele went on to do campaigns for major fashion houses such as Ralph Lauren,Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Celine, Gianfranco Ferre, Chloe, Victoria's Secret and XOXO.

She also appeared on the cover of magazines such as Vogue, Allure, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar, Arena, Rolling Stone, Elle, and this months Vanity Fair. Gisele was titled " The Most Beautiful Girl in the World " by Rolling Stone Magazine

For years she was known as a famed Victorias Secret Angel. Gisele was the face of Victoria's Secret for almost ten years until ending her contract in 2008.

Over the years she has won many awards such as "model of the year" from the Vogue / VH1 fashion awards. Her career has continued to grow and branch out in many directions. With her success she was able to create the Luz Foundation, a project to empower girls and help them deal with self-esteem issues.

She has her shoe line Ipanema by Gisele BŁndchen and donates a portion of the profits from her Brazilian line of flip-flops to protect Amazon rain-forest water. This is among other Brazilian programs she has started to protect waterways and restore deforested areas of Brazil.

Along with so many projects in her life she has also been fortunate enough to find time for true love. She married NFL star quarterback Tom Brady and took a little time off from modeling to have her first child.

In only a few weeks from the having her baby, Gisele was already been back to work and launched her skin care line natural Sejaa. She been a very busy supermodel.

So here we have Gisele Bundchen, bringing back the model to the definition supermodel !
