There’s no greater fashion week pick-me-up than seeing an iconic model take a turn on the catwalk (and don’t even get us started on the joy that a Zoolander cameo brings on). Sadly, Gisele Bündchen sightings will soon be few and far between as the top-earning supermodel recently confirmed her retirement from the runway and sealed the deal with a sweet goodbye post on Instagram earlier today. Bündchen plans to wrap up her fashion show career at the Colcci show during São Paulo Fashion Week today. The Brazilian beauty will no doubt continue to grace the covers of magazines and star in ad campaigns in the years to come—according to Forbes she earned a whopping 47 million last year alone.
I am grateful that at 14, I was given the opportunity to start this journey. 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. #firstrunway #14yearsold
