Stuart Weitzman is one of those brands that never disappoint with their campaigns. Each season we get overly excited to see their super-innovative ads that are literally out of this world. So far, the label has tapped so many iconic faces, and every season gets even better. For Fall 2018, Stuart Weitzman’s creative director Giovanni Morelli decided to collaborate with two of the top modeling names of all times. Gisele Bundchen and Doutzen Kroes are the stars who front the official fall campaign.
Finally, something each one of us ladies will want to read! One of the most successful supermodels of our time, Gisele B‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ndchen is going to release a memoir. The Brazilian beauty sure has a lot to teach. Starting from her ultra-successful modeling career, to her super-healthy lifestyle, we want to know everything! In a celebrity fashion, B‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ndchen used Instagram to announce her book. Titled “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life’ will offer a close insight of Gisele’s career, everyday life, her marriage, and family. In the post, she included a number of throwback pictures.
“I¬¨¬®¬¨‚Ä¢m excited to announce the publication of my book, “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life’. Looking back on some of the experiences I have lived through these past 37 years, what I’ve learned, the values that guided me and the tools that have helped me become who I am, has been a profound and transformative experience. I’m happy I get to share with you my journey through many of the ups and downs that made me who I am today!’- the supermodel shared on her Insta profile.
You can expect a full memoir that describes every detail of her modeling career, from the very beginning. The long-legged Brazilian will open up about all the struggles she encountered on the way to the top, and how she managed to stay there for so long. Gisele was the highest-paid model in the world for 15 years in a row. Kendall Jenner is the one who dethroned her for the year of 2017. B‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ndchen has walked every single high-end runway show you can imagine, starred in a number of luxury brands’ campaigns and covered over 2,000 elite fashion and beauty magazines.
Gisele and her husband Tom Brady, are all about eating healthy. And when we say healthy, we mean an extremely natural, plant-based diet. The memoir will also include details about her nine-year marriage with the New England Patriots quarterback. The couple shares two children, so we might also get an insight of their family life and love relationship. When it comes to diet and cooking, fans are hoping that the supermodel will share recipes that keep her in such an amazing shape. They also expect the book to include beauty and fashion tips from the queen of runways.
Gisele’s “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life’ will be released on October 2. You can pre-order the book on amazon.com for $27.

Gisele B‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ndchen lost her leading position on the list of highest-paid models in 2017, for the first time in years. The model passed the throne to Kendall Jenner, but she doesn’t seem to have hard feelings about the situation. The now-retired supermodel and the second highest paid person in the industry looks absolutely stunning on the latest cover of Vogue Italia without a single drop of makeup.
To be honest, seeing Gisele B‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ndchen without makeup isn’t a new thing. The model likes to keep things natural on her Instagram account. Even for glamorous events, she often opts for minimal makeup. After all these years, you’d think the world of beauty and fashion is getting more real, but believe it or not, this is the first Vogue Italia cover to feature a model with a bare face. The 37-year old Brazilian stunner made history this Thursday with her make-up free shoot for the iconic magazine. This was also the first time for the magazine to have a star who styled the looks by herself without a stylist. Considering B‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ndchen’s long career in fashion, this most certainly wasn’t an issue for her.
In the intimate photo shoot, she shows her raw self in cozy loungewear and slippers alongside her husband Tom Brady and their two kids. In her successful career, Gisele’s endless legs or toned abs have always been the centerpiece of almost every campaign and cover, but now fans got to see the intimate side of her life. For Vogue Italia, the model gives a glimpse into her home life as well as her kitchen, bedroom, and yard. The photoshoot happened at the couple’s family home in Chestnut Hill in Boston.
In the photos, you can also see Gisele and her husband Tom Brady playing with their two kids Benjamin and Vivian around the house. The family is captured doing a series of activities together like horse riding and planting a tree in their garden. Photographer Jamie Hawkesworth, who was behind the camera, stated that he took unique measures to ‘preserve the intimacy’ of the happy family. He opted to shoot on film and pass on the artificial lighting.
Gisele B‚Äö√†√∂¬¨‚à´ndchen and Tom Brady had welcomed cameras in their family home earlier this month for the quarterback’s new documentary Tom vs Time. Anyway, this was the was the first time for the famous model to open up about her private home life.

Would you ever buy a book worth $700? That’s what Brazilian supermodel and actress Gisele Bundchen hoped you’d do at the end of September, when her fans learnt that a self-titled coffee-table book about the model was about to be released. Given the fact that $700 is quite a lot of money to spend on a book, a few eyebrows raised when Gisele Bundchen launched her book. However, time proved them wrong.
Published by the German publishing company Taschen, which is well known for its artistic tomes, Gisele’s 536-page book celebrates Bundchen’s 20th anniversary of her career, featuring more than 300 photographs and tributes from Bundchen’s friends and colleagues in the fashion industry, as well as countless high-fashion campaigns, where the supermodel has starred. On the book cover one of Gisele Bundchen’s most notorious portraits is published, captured by one of the most talented contemporary photographers ” Irvin Penn.
So, why did they set such an expensive price tag? It is because there are only 1000 copies available of the book, and all the proceeds will go towards a charity that according to some sources is close to Gisele’s heart. Gisele has been a famous philanthropist, having worked close with UNICEF and on certain climate change advocacy projects (she has been appointed as the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme).
Gisele Bundhcen’s $700 book, titled ‘Gisele’ and personally curated by the 35-year-old model herself, actually sold out on Thursday (just a day before the official book’s launch date), thanks to Bundchen’s fans who diligently pre-ordered it online. The model announced the good news on her Instagram account, sharing her immense gratitude: “Gratitude for all the love I received from everyone at the launch of my book today. Thank you for being there for me at this very special moment. #giselesbook’
Bundchen, who retired from the runways back in April, has been named the world’s highest-paid model for 9 years in a row. She thus made such a choice after 20 years in the industry, stating that it was her body that told her to step away from the runways.
“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.’
If you lost the opportunity to purchase Gisele’s book, do not worry: Taschen is thinking about reduplicating their efforts publishing another edition of the ‘Gisele’ book, due for release next year.
Married to American football player Tom Brady, with whom she has two children ” Benjamin and Vivien, Gisele Bundchen is definitely a living piece of art now.

Models are what drive the fashion industry these days it appears. We remember models more than we remember brands, which is quite the strange twist on things but reality nonetheless. Those top supermodels? Well, let us just say they get paid enough for their God-given good looks and meticulous attention to their body details. In particular, we see some up-and-coming younger models falling into the highest paid categories, though it is the older, more professional semi-retired ones who will keep leading the scoreboard for now. Forbes has just launched the list of the highest paid supermodels in 2015, and while Kendall Jenner is on the list, it’s Gisele Bundchen that leads!
The top paid lady, who seems to have won the genetic lottery is Gisele Bundchen, who has banked about 35 million more than her runners-up, Cara Delevingne and Adriana Lima, coming up with a whopping 44 million USD. Top earners include Karlie Kloss and Candice Swanepoel with 5 million USD in 2015, Alessandra Ambrosio coming in with them (a mother of 2 children no less) along with Lara Stone, all with the same amount. Joana Smalls is the Latino Amabassor for Estee Lauder and banked just a bit over the others, at 5.5 million, while Miranda Kerr joined her on the scale. Bringing home 7 million in 2015 is Natalia Vodianova, while Doutzen Kroes, with her own line of cashmere sweaters, earned but a half million more. At the end of the day though, just Delevingne and Lima just under her, it is Bundchen who has swept the table of awards and taken home the prize, the well-loved Brazilian with her own lingerie line and her knack for designing sandals for Grendene from her home country. She may have generally retired from the runway, but her career is far from over as she continues to sign contracts with Chanel and Carolina Herrera for their fragrances and beauty products, along with doing photoshoots here and there that has the blonde bombshell constantly showing up on all our fashion media.
Over the past year, it was Cara Delevingne whose earnings skyrocketed at a whopping 61% to 9 million USD, which essentially means that we might be seeing Bundchen style success in the future for her. However, it appears there is competition to be found in her best friend Kendall Jenner, who is part of the Taylor Swift girl gang along with Delevingne and Karlie Kloss. Kendall currently ranks number 16 on the highest paid models chart, earning a decent 4 million USD, but with a very large social media following ” 58 million of them spanning Facebook, Twitter and Instagram of course, the latter having a very impressive 36.4 million. Delevingne has only 19 million on Instagram in comparison.
Being a model is not so easy so we give kudos to the newcomers who make it big, often through exposure due to their families. In Jenner’s case, we can call it family plus inclusion in the tight girl gang that enjoys the fashion shows together and parties it up like the best of them in only the sexiest and more fashion forward of red carpet and after part designs by the top artists to have their creativity grace the catwalks of the Fashion Weeks.
Don’t miss: Supermodels Who Want To Be Something More

There is a piece of news that saddens us to no end. It is a new development that will leave a hole in the fashion industry for some time yet, reminding us that there was one a beautiful supermodel named Gisele Bundchen, who has officially retired from the runway. A star has been extinguished in the world of designers and runway shows as we bid farewell to one of our very favourites to appear on that catwalk. Gisele Caroline Bundchen, the 34-year-old Brazilian fashion model who was scouted at the tender age of 14 will have walked her last runway show at the Sao Paulo Fashion Week Colcci show in Brazil. It is a nice way to retire from her 20-year-long career as she has been the face of the Brazilian brand for several seasons, wrapping up this chapter in her life as she struts her stuff on stage in her own hometown. We will definitely be peeling quite the pang of loss in seeing her go.
Gisele Bundchen is a sixth generation Brazilian hailing from a German descent and born in Southern Brazil. She was raised in an area where many were of the same ancestry along with her five sisters, including fraternal twin Patricia. In 1993 the twins joined a modeling course and Bundchen discovered by the Elite modelling agency a year later during a school excursion. It was in 1996 that she finally got her big Fashion Week break in New York City. In 1998 she was chosen to walk Alexander McQueen’s ready to wear show called Rain because of her ability to walk in towering heels on a slippery runway. Securing her first British Vogue cover, she soon became an in-demand cover girl, particularly big in her generation, being featured in over 10 covers in fewer than four years. Even Kate Moss didn’t have more than nine.
Gisele has posed for Missoni, Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Gianfranco Ferre, Ralph Lauren, and Versace campaigns. By the year 2000, Bundchen was just about the world’s hottest model, known as the Brazilian Bombshell. She’s been credited with ending the “heroin chic’ era of modelling and pioneering the “horse walk’ stomping movement as she picks up her knees and kicks her feet out in front. She was one of Victoria’s Secret Angels from the turn of the millennium to around mid-2007, having been named one of the only remaining supermodels in the world. If we are talking about awe-inspiring facts, in 2004 she was the highest paid model in the world, while in 2007 she was named the 16th richest woman in the entertainment industry. On 12 May 2009, The Independent called her “the biggest star in fashion history” and within the same year Harper’s Bazaar rated her among the top 26 greatest models of all time. In 2012, she was the top earning model on the Forbes models list, while in 2014 she was the 89th most powerful woman in the world. She is, and always has been, an incredible individual in the world of fashion and her status throughout the years as placing in the top lists has proven her mettle.
Gisele Bundchen has also dipped her toes in the world of acting, playing a supporting role in Taxi in 2004, for which she was nominated at the Teen Choice Awards for the Choice Breakout performance category, as well as the Choice Movie Bad Guy. She’s also taken a supporting role in the 2006 movie The Devil Wears Prada. Furthermore, by the end of 2014, the famous supermodel had appeared in 6,013 television commercial spots in the course of a single year in Brazil, much more than any other Brazilian celebrity; she even outranked Neymar, who had made 5,625 TV commercial spots, one of the highest in the country.
But 22 hours ago, the news about her retirement was made official by an Instagram post where she stated: “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.’ Now, with a coconut in her hand, she states that she is almost read. For what though, we are not yet sure. Whatever it is, we are hoping to see some awesome photos, even throughout her quasi-retirement period.
We simply cannot imagine retirement suiting the lively Gisele. It may be that she takes a few years off, but we fully expect to see her step back onto that catwalk and prance down that lane with all the confidence and gusto we are used to seeing in her step. She would thus be joining in the ranks with Cher and Michael Jordan, even Jay Z, by appearing in the spotlight a given time later, only to shine bright once more and set our hearts on fire. While retirement may be expected to be golf trips and tanning under the Bahamas sun, it may actually look more like Chanel campaigns, Vogue covers, and endorsement deals that rake in the cash by the millions. At the same time, we are sure that she will never stop with her charitable activities that she has been known for so well, from being a Goodwill ambassador to donating $150,000 to Brazil’s Zero Hunger program. In 2010, she wrote a check for $1.5 million to the Red Cross to aid the relief efforts in Haiti after seeing the devastation left in the wake of the hurricane. Only time will tell what happens next, but we know that no matter what it is, it has to be big!

“My life is devoted to this,” she admitted in an interview with belfasttelegraph.co.uk. “I know from the outside, people think this girl just poses for pictures, but in my head, all I’m thinking the whole time is, ‘Ok, if I take this job then I can have more money to put in to this action’, so that’s what I’m doing because that’s the form that God gave me to do what I can do, right?”
