BIOGRAPHY

Gisele Bündchen was bornon 20 July 1980 in Três de Maio, Brazilian, is Fashion Model. Gisele Bundchen needs no introduction; at least to the fashion aficionados. Regarded as the highest-paid model on the planet, Gisele Bundchen enjoys lucrative revenues from over 20 fashion and personal care brands she endorses, along with her own line of fashion products. Her journey from a 14-year old awkward teenage model to a full-fledged multiplatform business tycoon has often been the talk of the fashion industry. This tall-leggy beauty, with navy-blue eyes and honey-colored hair, rose to international fame when she won a record-breaking contract with the American lingerie retailer, Victoria’s Secret, which helped it grow from an ordinary bra brand to a world-famous lingerie giant. Her appearance on international fashion editorials and magazines and regular catwalks at fashion shows made her the most in-demand supermodel. This first-ever model billionaire is regarded as the most popular fashion export from Brazil and is ranked on Forbes’ list of ‘top-earning models’ for eight consecutive years. Apart from being a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme, she also heads the non-profit organization, Rainforest Alliance, involved with biodiversity conservation and sustainability. This Brazilian bombshell has often been in the media for her relationships with high-profile male celebrities.
