Gisele Bundchen Facts
The Brazilian goddess is estimated to be worth $250m, and is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as “the world’s richest supermodel”.
Gisele is a big football fan, and follows Big Phil Scolari’s former side Grêmio.
Two Brazilian musicians wrote a song about Gisele called Tributo a Gisele. She liked it so much that it became the theme of her official website.
Why We Love Gisele Bundchen
Gisele Bundchen has been described by both Naomi Campbell and Claudia Schiffer as the “last true supermodel” – and who are we to disagree? (Not that we’d disagree with Naomi Campbell about anything, as she scares the poops out of us).
When she first rose to fame in 1999, Vogue magazine hailed her as “the return of the sexy model” - a welcome return to curves and hotness following years of heroin-chic. They weren’t the only ones to notice: Leo DiCaprio was also pretty taken with her, and the pair began a lengthy romance. Gisele eventually sacked him off and shacked up with American kicky-ball star Tom Brady, and actually owes New York a public streaking because of him, as she claimed that she’d run through Manhattan in the buff if Brady’s New England Patriots won the 2008 Super Bowl – which they did. Alas, as yet, no streak. We shoulda got it in writing.
