According to reports from many sources, supermodel Gisele Bundchen is to retire from the runway next month after a final walk at the Sao Paolo Fashion Week in Brazil. She will, however, continue to work in high profile fashion campaigns. The sources also say it has always been her wish to end the runway career in her native country, Brazil, where she started her 20-year career. Bundchen is reportedly the highest paid model in the world. She is a mother of two and a wife of NFL quarterback Tom Brady.
Fans have been noticing that Gisele has been appearing less and less on the runway in the last few years, so the announcement is not a surprise. The supermodel helped raise the profile of Sao Paolo as a fashion mecca, as well as promoting Brazilian designers across the world.
When it comes to most notable Gisele's appearances recently, the media remind of her September catwalk show in Paris called “feminist protest”. She appeared alongside much younger colleagues like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevigne, but they remained in the shade of the supermodel's confidence.
Bundchen was famous for being a mascot of Victoria's Secret fashion shows for years. She has been appearing in sexy lingerie by VS since 1999. Although she did not yet officially confirm that she was retiring, many fashion experts claim that the reason lies in her desire to spend more time with her children and husband at home.
