Gisele Bundchen takes last strut on Sao Paulo catwalk

April 16, 2015

After 20 years in the industry, Gisele Bundchen is retiring from the runway.


Gisele, the world’s highest paid model, has taken her last strut down the catwalk at Sao Paulo Fashion Week.

To loud cheers from the audience, the 34-year old modeled summer dresses for Brazilian label Colcci on Wednesday before making her finale alongside models dressed in jeans and T-shirts printed with sketches of her. Holding back tears, she smiled and waved to the cameras and audience.

Bundchen told Brazilian media that she wants to now focus on print campaigns and spend more time with her young family.

“Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business.”

Her husband, New Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, was among the cheering audience.
