Gisele Bundchen Bio

In 1993, a then-13-year-old Bündchen joined a modeling course with her sisters Patrícia and Gabriela at her mother’s insistence. The following year, Bündchen went to São Paulo on a school excursion to give them an opportunity to walk in a big city. In a shopping mall, while eating at McDonald’s with her friends, Bündchen was discovered by a modeling agency. She was subsequently selected for a national contest, Elite Look of the Year, in which she placed second — Claudia Menezes, from Bahia, took first place. Bündchen placed fourth in the world contest, held in Ibiza, Spain. In 1996, Bündchen moved to New York City to begin her modeling career, debuting at Fashion Week. After childbirth, in 2010, Gisele was in the Shape issue of Vogue US. In the same year Roberto Cavalli signed up Gisele as the face of his Fall/Winter campaign, which also marks 40th anniversary for the designer’s label.

Claudia Schiffer said: “Supermodels, like we once were, don’t exist any more” and reckoned that Gisele Bündchen was the only one close to earning the supermodel title. Naomi Campbell said: “Models need to earn their stripes – I just think the term is used a little too loosely. Kate Moss is obviously a supermodel but, after Gisele, I don’t think there’s been one.” On August 26, 2008, the New York Daily News, in a list, named Bündchen the fourth-most-powerful person in the fashion world. On May 12, 2009, The Independent, called her the biggest star in fashion history.
