These days the world is filled with self-proclaimed supermodels, but only a select few truly earn the title. Game-changing Brazilian modeling star Gisele Bündchen has embodied the spirit of the term since she dominated the runways of the early aughts, ushering in a wave of sexy, confident beauties who pushed fashion’s aesthetics away from the waif ideal set by Kate Moss. After racking up 141 Vogue covers internationally, walking for every prominent designer, launching her lingerie brand, writing a book, and much more, Bündchen has done nearly everything a model might hope to. While she’s celebrated for her contributions to fashion, there’s one aspect that is often overlooked: her killer personal style. Granted, it’s her job to make designer creations look their best. Indeed, all the years spent backstage and in front of the camera have helped her craft an approach to dressing that’s all her own.

Glamour and sex appeal are essential to Bündchen’s wardrobe. Off-duty, she sticks to denim and oversized sweaters or gauzy boho dresses, though when it’s time for an event, she goes all out. Her tenure as Victoria’s Secret angel may be over, but Bündchen still gravitates towards slinky, body-conscious styles, whether it’s shimmering pink Dior Haute Couture with a plunging neckline for the Met Gala’s camp extravaganza in 2019 or the glossy gold jumpsuit she wore at the opening of Brazilian swimwear brand Rosa Cha’s Los Angeles store earlier that year.

Often accompanied by her husband, football legend Tom Brady, Bündchen makes sure to coordinate their outfits and they frequently share a color scheme or motif. Case in point: when Bundchen wore that pink Dior, Brady was right behind her looking dapper in maroon velvet Tom Ford. Even before she became Mrs. Brady, she had the “couples style” thing down pat. Who could forget her memorable trip to the 2005 Academy Awards when she walked the carpet with then-boyfriend, Leonardo DiCaprio, wearing an ethereal John Galliano designed Dior gown.

Between the Dior and Versace, Bündchen regularly mixes in pieces that are sustainable and eco-friendly. A glance at her Instagram account reveals her passion for climate activism, especially concerning her native Brazil’s rainforests. These values carry over into her wardrobe in which designers like Stella McCartney hold special prominence. A fan of McCartney’s regal evening wear, Bündchen chose a white column gown with a built-in cape for last year’s Hollywood for Science Gala where she was honored by the UCLA Institute of Environment and Sustainability for 15 years worth of charity work. Elegant, sexy, and made of upcycled materials, it represents everything the supermodel stands for now.
