Ever since the fateful 1999 Vogue feature that credited her with “The Return of the Sexy Model,” Gisele Bündchen has been a Very Big Deal. Nearly twenty years later, the Brazilian superstar has walked hundreds of runways, worn millions of dollars worth of incredible clothes, made a ton of money, and inspired countless women everywhere to beg their hairstylists for "beachy waves, just like Gisele's."
Gisele may have effectively retired from the modeling biz in 2015, but the A-lister has been spending a lot of time in the spotlight these past couple of months while doing the rounds to promote her tell-all memoir, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life, which was officially released October 2nd. Perhaps Gisele's finest hour was not her mid-'00s modeling heyday — maybe it's happening as we speak. She's on her path; now she's ready to help you find yours. (Save us, Gisele!)
This week, we celebrate Gisele's completion of the path to published author. With that, we also celebrate all the beauty products she uses and the talented team of experts she employs, as well as the offhanded comments she makes once in a while that make you realize, Wow, she really did just wake up looking like that.
