Gisele Bundchen Says Goodbye to the Runway in Final Fashion Show – Entertainment Tonight
One of modeling’s icons has walked her last runway.
Gisele Bundchen took her final trip down the catwalk on Wednesday, appearing in the Colcci Ready to Wear Spring/Summer 2016 Fashion Show in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The 34-year-old Brazilian model has been the face of the brand for many years.
Bundchen, who made her debut at New York Fashion Week in 1996, said her goodbyes at the end of the show surrounded by fellow models, all of whom donned shirts printed with her likeness.
Bundchen’s husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, supported his wife from a front-row seat.
Brady also posted a sweet message to his wife on his Facebook page, writing: “Congratulations Love of my Life…Nobody loves life more then you and your beauty runs much deeper then what the eye can see. I can’t wait to see what’s next.”
Earlier in the day, the model confirmed her runway retirement when she posted an Instagram pic of her first catwalk at age 14, writing that she was “grateful” for her opportunities in the fashion industry and felt privileged “to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business.”
