Supermodel Gisele Bündchen is retiring from the runway and with that an era is coming to an end! The 34-year-old former Victoria’s Secret model is truely one of the greatest runway models that graced the international catwalks! And I’m not just saying that, of course I did some research to proof my point!
Her decision to step off the runways for good is a loss to the fashion world, but at the end of the day it was her decision and if you have a look at her over 20 year long career it’s quite understandable, that the model wants to focus more on her family and other projects in the industry. And she deserves it!
Let numbers do the talking!
Gisele’s net worth has $320 million, that’s for example more than Katy Perry’s ($130 million) and Rihanna’s ($140 million) net worth together and makes her by far the richest model on the planet! Quite frankly you can say that she worked her beautiful butt off to reach a point in her career where she’s leaving (a part of) the fashion industry and not the other way round. The Brasilian über model has graced all the fashion magazine covers, stomped down the catwalk for the most well renowned designers of our time and booked major campaigns. Without a doubt you can call her a living legend in the fashion industry! And by the way if you haven’t read my article about Gisele and her Chanel No 5 campaign, head over to this link!
On her official instagram the mother of two wrote
The runways will miss you, Gisele!
