She is one of the best in the business, so we’ll admit to feeling a little shocked when supermodel Gisele Bundchen announced that she is retiring from runway modelling.
The stunning Brazilian, famed for her never-ending legs, revealed that she has had enough of that side of the industry, and is looking to end her 20-year stint as one of the top runway models in the fashion world.
The 34-year-old also revealed that she will walk her final runway walk in Sao Paulo next month, where she will be modelling new designs from Colcci’s summer 2016 collection.
The Brazilian beauty was quick to reassure fans that, while this is the end of an era for catwalk modelling, she is not retiring entirely from the industry. Indeed, she will continue to pose for fashion spreads and campaigns.
Gisele, who is married to sports star Tom Brady, is one of the world’s highest paid models and has walked for every major label, from Chanel to Victoria’s Secret.
So, now that she’s retiring, who will take her crown?
