Bundchen was excited to have the series premiere in 2010 after she worked for it for two years. She wanted to use the TV series to educate the kids and adults about conserving the environment.
Brady’s wife has a small star tattoo
Bundchen decided to have the tattoo inside her left wrist after she moved to Manhattan when she was 15. She recalled her grandma telling her and her sisters that everyone had a special star and she used to look at her star in the night sky before retiring to bed while growing up. When she came to New York, she opened the window of her apartment, and light and fog covered the sky, and so she couldn’t see her star. She took a pen and drew one on her wrist, but it kept on rubbing off. Bundchen decided to go to a tattoo parlor and get a permanent star, and she was excited that she could go with it to anywhere in the world.
A book about her was sold out in one day
In 2015, it was announced by publishers Taschen that there would be a tome charting Gisele’s modeling career that would go for $70. The 536-page book was carefully curated and included a selection of Gisele’s best images from the time she started modeling actively. On the book cover was Irving Penn’s landmark, “return of the Curve,” Gisele’s portrait which was featured in the US Vogue magazine in the 90’s when Gisele was still new to the industry. Over 1000 copies of the book were made before the official release date and distributed all over the world.
