Brazilian bombshell, wife and mom, Gisele Bundchen, is set to take one last strut down the runway Wednesday on the very same runway at the very same event that launched her career 20 years ago. As the world’s top-earning model, according to Business Insider, the high fashion beauty will be sashay down the runway at Sao Paulo Fashion Week (SPFW.)
Last month, the 34-year-old model announced that she would be retiring from the runway, as she wanted to focus more on her two other roles, being a wife to Superbowl Champion Tom Brady, and a mother to their two children Benjamin and Vivian. Although most assume retiring means your on your way to “Has-been land”, Bundchen is quite optimistic. “My body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked me to stop”, she tells Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo. “I respect my body, its my privilege to be able to stop.”
Bundchen has modeled for major fashion houses including Alexander Wang, Balenciaga, Carolina Herrera, Valentino, Versace, and is most famous in the states for being a beloved Victoria’s Secret Angel. She will, however continue to model off the runway and promote her lingerie line, Gisele Bundchen Intimates, which launched in 2011 under a Brazilian label. Her final runway show will be for Brazilian label Colcci.
