Why Is She Famous?
Gisele won the Model of the Year award recently, and was also the host of the VH1 Fashion Awards.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" and named "Model of the Year" by VH1 and Vogue, you would be hard pressed to find other ways to describe this Brazilian beauty. Gisele Caroline Bundchen was born July 20th, 1980, in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Gisele is not the only beauty in her family; in fact, her five other sisters -- Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, Patricia, and Rafaela -- are also aspiring models.

A natural phenomenon, Gisele stands tall at 5'11", with dark blue eyes, a freckled face and wavy brown hair. The road to becoming today's most sought-after model came by chance for Gisele, after she was spotted by an Elite Modeling Agency agent while eating a Big Mac at a Sao Paulo McDonald's with her friends at the age of 14. Despite her father's disagreement with her career choice, Gisele moved to the city. In 1995, she entered the "Elite Look Modeling Competition", and her career has taken off ever since. Gisele has since been in campaigns for major fashion houses such as Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Valentino, Celine, Gianfranco Ferre, and Chloe.

As for magazine covers, she has graced the covers of Vogue USA, Vogue Italia, Marie Claire, Harper's Bazaar, Arena,, Allure, and she is currently on the cover of the September edition of Rolling Stone. On August 26, 2008, the New York Daily News, in a list, named B√ľndchen the fourth-most-powerful person in the fashion world.
