Gisele Bundchen Biography
Gisele Bundchen born Gisele Caroline Bündchen, is a Brazilian supermodel. She was born on 20 July 1980 in Horizontina, a small town in the countryside of Rio Grande do Sul to Vânia Nonnenmacher and Valdir Bündchen.
In 1993, Bündchen joined a modeling course with her sisters Patrícia and Gabriela at their mother’s insistence. The course ended with a trip to Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. It was during this trip that she was discovered by the Elite modeling agency at a shopping mall in São Paulo and invited her to their modeling agency. She was subsequently selected for a national contest, Elite Look of the Year, in which she placed second. Bündchen placed fourth in the Elite Model Look world contest in Ibiza, Spain. At 14, Bündchen moved to São Paulo to launch her modeling career. In 1996, Bündchen had her first New York City break at Fashion Week.
Bündchen traveled to London in 1997, where she auditioned for 42 shows. She got her big break when chosen for her ability to walk in towering heels on a slippery runway for Alexander McQueen’s spring 1998 “rain” ready-to-wear show. In 1998, she posed for Missoni, Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Gianfranco Ferré, Ralph Lauren, and Versace campaigns. She made the cover of the French edition of Vogue, and fashion magazine i-D featured her on its cover, profiling “A Girl Called Gisele.”
She appeared on the cover of Vogue in July, November and December 1999. She won the VH1/Vogue Model of the Year for 1999, and a January 2000 cover gave her three consecutive Vogue covers. In 2000, she became the fourth model to appear on the cover of the music magazine Rolling Stone when she was named “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World”. Bündchen has appeared on the covers of many top fashion magazines, including W, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Allure, as well as style and lifestyle publications such as The Face, Arena, Citizen K, Flair, GQ, Esquire, and Marie Claire, and in the Pirelli Calendar in 2001 and 2006.

Eighty percent of the family’s diet is composed of organic vegetables and wholegrains, namely brown rice, quinoa, millet and beans which are cooked in natural coconut oil. On top of this, food products containing white sugar and white flour are banned from the house.
Red meat in moderation
When the family do eat meat, it’s lean meat: organic steak, duck and chicken. In terms of fish, family chef Allen mostly cooks wild salmon.
Eating dinner between 5:30pm and 6pm allows you to have an early night, and gives your body plenty of time to digest your meal so that your stomach can rest while you sleep. By doing this, during the early hours your body will be light and cleansed. The supermodel has followed this routine for a long time, helping her maintain her envy-inducing lean, toned body from the moment she wakes up.

Tom Brandy And Gisele Bundchen
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen met through a friend back in 2006 — and it was pretty much love at first sight. According to the New York Daily News, Brady proposed to his girlfriend in early 2009. He popped the question in front of her parents, on a private flight “decked out with white roses and champagne.”
The couple tied the knot on February 26, 2009, in a twilight Catholic ceremony in Santa Monica. Brady told GQ the wedding took about 10 days to plan, and only included close family members. They also celebrated a second ceremony in Costa Rica, that following April.
Bundchen and Brady now have two children together, son Benjamin Rein and daughter Vivian Lake.
