Gisele Shares Throwback Photo in Honor of Last Runway Show
Today marks Gisele Bündchen’s final day on the runway.
The 34-year-old model will hang up her catwalking shoes after she struts her stuff during São Paulo Fashion Week tonight, walking for Brazilian street label Colcci, a brand she has represented since 2005.
Before she takes the runway for the last time, Bündchen shared a sweet throwback photo to her Instagram account from her very first show:
“I am grateful that at 14, I was given the opportunity to start this journey. Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business #firstrunway #14yearsold.”
Bündchen has become the leading lady in the industry, maintaining the position of the No.1 highest paid model for the last several years, according to Forbes.
However, despite the hefty paycheck, the supermodel says her body is telling her it’s time to move on. “Automatically my body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop,” she told a Brazilian newspaper over the weekend. “I respect my body, it’s a privilege to be able to stop.”
