Gisele Bundchen, the model with the biggest net worth according to Forbes, is ending her catwalk days where it began, Sao Paulo Fashion Week.
Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen will take to the catwalk for the last time, ending her runway career.
Gisele lit up catwalks for 20 years.
Bundchen is retiring from the runway at Sao Paulo Fashion Week, the same event where she made her debut 20 years ago.
“My body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop.
I respect my body, it’s a privilege to be able to stop,” Bundchen told Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo:.” “While commemorating her 20th career anniversary, Gisele Bündchen will also celebrate her last walk for Fashion Week shows,” a spokesperson for Gisele said in a statement last month.
“The top model, who has walked for the most prestigious brands in the business, such as Chanel, Alexander Wang, Balenciaga and Givenchy and has cut back her catwalk appearances over the years, will walk her final fashion show in her native country during the Sao Paulo Fashion Week.” The leggy, 34-year-old mother of two announced last month she was retiring from runway modeling in order to spend more time with her husband, New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady, and their two children, Benjamin and Vivian.
Tom Brady will still have a busy – and extremely lucrative – career modeling for TV, magazine and other ad campaigns after she stops runway modeling.
But the move is a milestone for the world’s most successful supermodel, who made her bones on the runway as Victoria’s Secret’s No.
1 ‘Angel'” the statement continued.
Bundchen announced that the Colcci show at Sao Paulo Fashion Week in April will be her last.
According to Brazilian source Moda Estadao, Bundchen will still model and appear in ads for Chanel, David Yurman and Under Armour as well as has her own lingerie and footwear lines.
“Gisele will continue working on special projects and also give more time to her No.
1 priority: her family,” the statement concluded.
Gisele Bundchen, the Brazilian-born stunner, has modelled for Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and Christian Dior and is now showcasing her new Intimates lingerie collection.
Forbes named Gisele Bundchen the 89th most powerful woman in the world in 2014.
