Gisele Bundchen

I am a big fan of Gisele Bundchen. She's sooo sexy! According to Forbes, she is the world's highest paid model as well as the world's richest model. Not just a pretty face, Gisele is also an enterpreneur. She owns a hotel in southern Brazil and she also has a line of sandals for Ipanema, a Brazilian shoe company.

Gisele hails from Brazil but is of German descent. This statuesque beauty, half of a set of fraternal twins, was discovered at the young age of 14. She left her family at that tender age and moved to Sao Paulo to begin her career as a model. At 16, she moved to New York City for her debut at Fashion Week. Since then, she's been on over 400 magazine covers worldwide! There's been no looking back for this Brazilian beauty.

Gisele has been the face of many advertising campaigns including major houses such as Christian Dior, Chloe, Balenciaga, Versace, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbanna, and Louis Vuitton. Earlier this year, Gisele opted not to extend her multi-million dollar contract with Victoria's Secret ending her long and fruitful relationship with the brand.

Here's an ad for her Brazilian shoe line. She's wearing water!
