Brazil’s most famous model, Gisele Bundchen, is planning on walking one final time at São Paulo Fashion Week in her native Brazil next month.

gisThe 34-year old supermodel, wife to quarterback Tom Brady, and mother-of-two has been walking the runways for 20 years and plans to officially call it quits when she walks the Colcci show next month. Although she’ll be retiring from the runways, she’ll continue to grace high-end lines and fashion spreads so this definitely won’t be the last we hear from her.
Bundchen has been a model since the age of 14 and is well-known worldwide. Although she’s walked for many high-end design houses like Chanel and Balenciaga, she’s more famously known for being a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She’s walked the lingerie runway for many years and has worn the wings more than once.
But having a pretty face isn’t all that she’s known for as she has the brains to accompany her beauty. Bundchen can speak several languages, aside from her native Portuguese, including English, Spanish, German, French, and Italian and is a smart business woman which has led her to become the highest paid model according to Forbes. Last year alone, Gisele is said to have earned $47 million so we know there’s a lot more to her than her good looks.
Athough this is the end of her runway career, she’ll be involved in the fashion industry in other ways so be sure to keep an eye out for her future work.
