The Brazillian supermodel stole the show at Rio's Olympic opening ceremony...
We should’ve known. Gisele Bündchen might’ve retired, but she certainly hasn’t lost her modelling mojo. For the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympic Games on Friday, Gisele walked her biggest catwalk yet- we’re talking a live audience of 78,000 people (plus 3 billion watching at home), and a runway spanning fifty whole kilometres. We know.
Bündchen strutted across Rio’s Maracana Stadium in a thigh-split sequinned silver gown created by Brazilian designer Alexandre Herchovitch to the sound of ‘Girl from Ipanema’, as beams of light replicating the creations of legendary architect Oscar Niemeyer ran behind her. We’d go on, but words don’t do it justice.
There is something else we should add though: the performance was so amazing that it led to a 1850% rise in Google searches for the supermodel in just one hour!
Before making her appearance, Gisele took to Instagram with the following message: “As I walk down tonight on the longest runway I have ever been on I will be sending out all my love and positivity. I am humbled and honoured to be part of this historic moment for my country. I believe that unity is the key to creating a world filled with kindness, gratitude, peace and love.”
Not just a pretty face, eh? All hail Gisele.
