A representative for Gisele Bündchen has confirmed that the supermodel is retiring from the runway. Rumors started surfacing on Monday that Bündchen was prepared to leave the catwalk. Apparently, we've wasted a lot of time since then hoping, wishing, and praying that the news weren't true.
"Gisele will focus on special projects and also spending more time on her number one priority: her family," said her sister and representative, Patricia Bündchen in a statement. If reports from Monday are correct, Bündchen will make her last appearance on the runway at next month's São Paulo Fashion Week in Brazil for the label Colcci. Moda Estadão reported that it was Bündchen's dream to end her runway career in her native Brazil.
Bündchen is walking away from just a small slice of an extremely lucrative modeling career that nets her six figures daily. It's safe to say that the supermodel, who recently signed a $25 million contract with Under Armour and is married to football star Tom Brady, will make up for whatever she loses in runway appearances.
