Gisele Bundchen left IMG Models in early 2021 after approximately 22 years of being represented by the fashion modeling agency. Gisele Bunchen is one of the world’s most famous fashion models, and now she’s saying goodbye to her fashion modeling agency, IMG Models, after 22 years of working together. The 40 year old supermodel beauty is reportedly taking her fashion modeling representation in-house, with twin sister and manager Patricia Bundchen set to take the reigns of her fashion modeling career.

Gisele is believed to be one of the modeling industry’s top earners. Discovered when she was just 14 years old while at a mall in her native Brazil, the 5 foot 11 inches supermodel became a fashion modeling star during New York Fashion Week in 1996, having made her runway debut just two years earlier in 1994.

Gisele Bundchen was a Victoria’s Secret Angel from 2000 to 2007, wearing the coveted Fantasy Bra in 2000 and 2005, and has also graced over 41 Vogue covers throughout her fabulous fashion modeling career. In 2016 Brazilian supermodel announced she was quitting the catwalk, sharing on Instagram and writing:

‘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.’

Her final runway walk was something of a homecoming, modeling looks from Colcci during Sao Paulo Fashion Week in April 2016. However, Brazilian fashion model Gisele Bundchen has continued to pose for magazine fashion editorials and luxury fashion campaigns around the world. News of the retired Victoria’s Secret Angel’s representation came after her husband Tom Brady won his seventh NFL Championship during the Super Bowl.

Gisele was there to celebrate with her 43 year old loving husband Tom Brady, bringing his three kids Vivian, Benjamin, and Jack on the field during the Super Bowl to congratulate their famous dad (two of the three children are Gisele’s). The power couple shared a passionate kiss before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback accepted his MVP trophy that night in Super Bowl LV. Gisele Bundchen’s husband Tom Brady also broke his own record for oldest player to win a Super Bowl and joins Hall of Famer Peyton Manning as the only quarterbacks to win the Super Bowl trophy with multiple franchises.

  • Gisele Bündchen’s birth date: July 20, 1980.
  • Nationality: Brazil.
  • 17.2 Million Instagram Followers (June 2021).

“Brazilian fashion model Gisele Bundchen has earned over $497 million dollars from fashion modeling since the beginning of this century.”

Gisele Bündchen is arguably one of the most successful models of all time. Over more than 20 years in fashion, she built an unprecedented modeling career. During this time, she became the face of countless global campaigns for the most prominent brands and graced more than a thousand magazine covers, such as Time, Forbes, Rolling Stone, and the top fashion magazines including Vogue, W, Elle, and Harper’s Bazar. She has been photographed by the most prestigious photographers and walked the runaway for the most iconic fashion brands in the world.

Her path was so outstanding that a new term had to be created to define her presence in fashion. Gisele became known as a “Übermodel,” meaning “more than a supermodel.” In the late 90s and early 2000s, Gisele ushered in a big change in the era’s typical stereotype and brought to fashion a new look: a healthy body, curves and a golden tan. She also broke standards when she was able to combine a remarkable fashion career and a bustling commercial career. But her success is not only credited to her beautiful face and sculptural body. Her professionalism, positive attitude and contagious energy have been singled out by many as decisive traits in reaching the top of her career.

Furthermore, Gisele is also recognized for her passion and commitment to the environment. Along with her father in 2008 she created a project called “Agua Limpa” who planted more than 40,000 trees and was able to help the quality of the water in her hometown, Horizontina. In acknowledgment of her dedication to the environment, she was designated a Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations Environment Program in 2009. Since then, she has been working with the UN to draw attention to environmental issues and undertaken field missions in Brazil, Kenya, and the U.S. With a global reach, she uses her notoriety to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our planet and all living beings to make the world a healthier and happier place for her children and all generations to come.
