It's official: Gisele Bündchen has left the
The world's highest-paid supermodel took to the runway one last time for the Colcci show on April 15 during São Paulo Fashion Week. The walk marks her last in a career that spans over 20 years.
As expected, the 34-year-old, who announced her retirement from the runway in March, looked perfect as she strutted her stuff. Wearing a few different looks, including a flirty white mini dress with some killer knee-high gladiator heels, and an orange and white striped dress, the Brazilian beauty was beaming with confidence and happiness.
During the show's finale, the former Victoria's Secret Angel was joined by fellow Brazilian models including Ana Claudia Michels, Caroline Ribeiro and Fernanda Tavares, who wore shirts with Bundchen's face, and the words, "The best is yet to come" printed on them.
Husband and pro-football player Tom Brady was also there for the event, and showed his support for his wife by watching from the front row.
Prior to the show, the Vogue cover girl shared a photo on Instagram expressing gratitude for the opportunities she's had throughout her career, and calling her retirement a privilege.
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
Even though we're sad to see her leave the runway, we'll still be sure to find the stunner in the pages and on the covers of our favourite fashion mags. But of course, we can't help but think she'll be back.
Until then, we'll just have to reminisce on her amazing career.
