UPDATE 24/9/15: Despite having hung up her stilettos earlier on in the year, drop-dead gorgeous Gisele has just added yet another string to her never-ending bow.
To celebrate her 20th anniversary in the industry, the 35-year-old has launched an exclusive “Collector’s Edition” coffee table book, setting you back a cool £450 (no, we’re not kidding).
Consisting of 300 exclusive snaps of herself (nudes included), the limited edition book is “personally curated and and designed by Gisele in collaboration with Giovanni Bianco”.
But for all those die-hard Gisele fans, getting your mitts on one of these will be no mean feat. As well as the eye-watering price tag, German publishing company Taschen will be releasing just 1000 copies of the book, complete with a signature from the protagonist herself, obvs.
For all those keen to see what amazingness she will bring to the table this time, the book is available to pre-order now. Race you there!
28/4/15: When Gisele Bundchen announced her retirement from the catwalk a couple of weeks ago, we totally expected her to go out with a bang, and today she proved us right. In fact, it was less of a bang and more an explosion as she revealed her May Vogue Brasil cover, in celebration of her killer 20-year career. The 34-year-old super poses totally nude in the black and white shot, looking like a bronzed Grecian goddess. Pretty ironic considering her reason for retiring was because her body was telling her it was time to quit! Your bod is looking pretty good to us Gisele.
Obviously pleased with the results, Gisele posted the shot on her Instagram with the caption ‘My 20-year career celebration cover at @voguebrasil. Thanks to everyone who is part of this special edition.’ The glossy shoot marked a double celebration, as the magazine toasted it’s 40th anniversary issue, and Ms Bundchen put together a dream team of photographers, stylists and make-up artists to create the stunning images. If we were here, we’d be getting this one framed and hung up in pride of place, pronto!
