Can it really be summer without Gisele Bundchen topless on a magazine cover somewhere in the world? Fortunately, Vogue Paris does the honors with a sexy bikini beachwear photo spread for its new issue.
Bundchen, or just Gisele as she’s known throughout the fashion world, is pictured wearing just her bikini bottoms in a sandy beach shot.
Her back it to the camera, but there’s no mistaking that trim sand-sprinkled backside.
Photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin were behind the lens for the Paris magazine’s June/July issue.
The 31-year-old Brazilian beauty wears both one piece and two piece swimsuits and also after-beachwear in the photo spread.
Bundchen, who is married to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, is rumored to be pregnant with a second child. If so, she hasn’t shown it by cutting back on work.
She has landed deals with Versace, Givenchy, the Bank of Brazil and Salvatore Ferragamo so far this year.
In the late 1990s, Bündchen led a wave of Brazilian models into international fashion, but she’s been the most successful by far. Since 2004, she has been the highest-paid model in the world and the sixteenth richest woman in entertainment, according to one biography.
Vogue editor Anna Wintour, no less, crowned her the “model of the millennium,” and her rise to supermodel status was dubbed “the return of the sexy model.”
Check out why in her new photo spread.
