Curtain Call: Gisele Bundchen retires from the runway!


It’s the fashion news of this week.

According to Brazilian magazine Estadao, 34 year-old top model Gisele Bundchen will be retiring from the runway after her last appearance for the Brazilian brand, Colcci during Sao Paulo Fashion Week in April, marking the end of an exceptional career of strutting her stuff down catwalks all over the world for the last 20 years.

Journalist, Giovana Romani announced the scoop, saying that even if the yoga addict model does continue modelling for ad campaigns, Gisele Bundchen will not set foot on a catwalk ever again.

Like Karlie Kloss, who left Victoria’s Secret to focus on her studies, Gisele will be concentrating on other priorities. Her children, Benjamin and Vivian, and her husband football player, Tom Brady will now get to spend more time with the Brazilian bombshell.

In 2014, Forbes ranked Gisele as the world highest paid model, earning an estimated USD47 million in the year. However, since the big bucks were usually made from ad campaigns rather than from fashion shows, we probably don’t have to worry too much about Gisele’s bank account at the moment.

So as we await with bated breath till she unveils her next career move, here are some of Gisele’s best moments on the red carpet and on the runway.
