Gisele Bundchen walks the runway in final fashion show – Fox News
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.
Earlier in the day, the model confirmed her runway retirement when she posted an Instagram pic of her first runway 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.”
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 Sou muito grata por ter tido a oportunidade, aos 14 anos, de iniciar esta jornada. Hoje, após 20 anos nesta carreira, é um privilégio estar fazendo meu último desfile por escolha própria e ainda continuar trabalhando em outras facetas da indústria. #primeirodesfile #14anos
