- One of the most famous Brazilian supermodels is Gisele Bündchen
- At 1.80 meters tall she is truly stunning
- Bündchen is also an activist and Tom Brady's wife
But what did this important woman in the fashion industry look like in the early stages of her career, in the late 1990s?
The beautiful Victoria's Secret Angel
At just 20 years old, Gisele already enjoyed great popularity as a model and managed to have the longest contract in the history of the famous lingerie brand, Victoria's Secret. Bündchen walked for Victoria's Secret in a pair of angel wings from 2000 to 2007.
Who would have imagined that this girl would conquer the world when she modeled for the first time? To date, Tom Brady's wife has appeared on more than 1,200 magazine covers and in the year 2000 alone she was on the cover of International Vogue magazine 37 times.
Gisele is synonymous with power, fame and beauty
Seven years after this image, in 2007, Gisele was named the sixteenth highest-earning woman in the entertainment industry. Another of her recognitions is the promotion of a healthier image among models because she is not extremely thin.
As if her beauty alone wasn't stunning enough, Gisele created a modeling style where she walks with her feet slapping a bit while placing her hands on her hips. It only took the Brazilian supermodel three years, from modeling for the first time, to being named the most beautiful woman in the world and landing contracts with Dolce and Gabbana and Marc Jacobs.
Gisele is, in addition to all of the above, an activist committed to various political causes. She has been named a goodwill ambassador by the United Nations Organization and has made donations to institutions such as the Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders.
A great woman in every sense of the word!
