Today was a very sad day and it was also the end of an era! Supermodel Gisele Bundchen walked in the final runway show of her career, officially retiring from the catwalk. The supermodel and wife of NFL star Tom Brady strutted her stuff for Colcci, the Brazilian streetwear label she has represented sine 2005.
She decided to say her farewell with a little flashback post on Instagram saying, “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.”
The icon, who earned a whopping $47 million last year, said her body told her to stop doing runway. I’m assuming keeping the extra slim figure did take it’s toll.
Although I am sad to see her go – I’m happy she’s putting herself first. Farewell, Gisele!
