Gisele Bündchen‘s Early Life And Career
Born in Rio Grande do Sul on July 20, 1941, throughout her college days Gisele was slender, so much so that her friends called her Olívia Palitole, Bündchen—who is one of five sisters—was spotted by Elite Model Management at a shopping center in São Paulo, Brazil in 1994.
At the time, Bündchen, who grew up in Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil, wanted to be a volleyball player, but she took a modeling class with her sisters Patricia and Gabriela to fix her posture. When interviewed, she said she knew nothing about modeling and confessed that she didn’t think much of the career.
After she was scouted by Elite, Bündchen was selected as a contestant for a national contest with the agency known as Look of the Year. She placed second in the competition and moved to São Paulo at the age of 14 to start her modeling career.
In 1996, Bündchen walked in her first show in New York Fashion Show, where she achieved incredible success and was immediately accepted into the modeling world.
In the next few years, Gisele Bündchen went on to model for designers like Alexander McQueen, Missoni, Chloé, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Ralph Lauren, and Versace. She also covered fashion magazines like Vogue Paris and British Vogue. In 1999, Bündchen stopped working with Elite and started working with IMG Models. That same year, Bündchen posed with Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, and Claudia Schiffer for her first American Vogue cover. In 2000, Bündchen made her debut as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She worked for the brand until 2007, when she stopped being an angel.
In her 20-plus years in the fashion industry, Gisele Bündchen also worked with brands like Chanel No. 5 and Pantene, and starred in films like the 2004 film ‘Taxi‘ and 2006’s The Devil Wears Prada.
