After 20 years Gisele Bündchen is retiring from the runway

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

There are models and there’s Tyra

Remember the days when models ruled the runways and you could actually identify them by only mentioning their first names? It was the era of the Supers: Linda, Christy, Naomi, Claudia, Kate, Elle, Tatjana and so on … Well, Tyra is definitely one of those models who can call herself a true supermodel. But it was a long and difficult way to accompish her success and it surely didn’t come over night. After deciding not to go to College and persuing modeling as a fulltime job, Tyra Banks went to Paris and worked successfully as a high fashion runway model. But as her body started to change and she became curvier, the model decided to not starve herself and to simply change her career into a whole other direction. And her plans paid off, since Tyra became the first ever black model to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine and the rest is history! From then on her career really took off and she managed to make herself a household name not only in fashion but in the whole entertainment industry. This year Sports Illustrated has its 50 years celebration, so it’s about time to look back and see how far Tyra Banks has come since she first appeared on the magazine’s cover in 1996. Take a look! 



If you can’t get enough of Tyra (like me), I can only recommend you guys to watch this E! documentary about Tyra’s career. She takes you on a tour about her life from the very beginning as a school girl to where she’s now, talking about the highs and lows on the way to success including the rivalry that went on with fellow supermodel Naomi Campbell.
