Gisele the Great

Gisele the Great

Get an insight into Gisele Bündchen’s life with her new coffee-table book.

The world’s highest paid supermodel Gisele Bündchen has had a whirlwind 20-year career so far, and it doesn’t look like she’ll be stopping any time soon.

A new limited-edition book will celebrate Gisele’s career and allow readers to follow her journey from the Brazilian countryside to the high-octane world of the modelling industry.

The book contains over 300 photographs, but will only provide a sneak peek into Gisele’s life as a global superstar – which has included more than 1,000 magazine covers, 450 catwalk appearances and numerous campaigns.

Curated by Gisele herself, the book will be an exclusive collector’s edition featuring famous shots taken by photographers such as Juergen Teller, David LaChapelle and Corinne Day, as well as candid shots by her closest relatives, friends and notable fashion leaders, in an attempt to convey why Gisele is such an important fashion figure.

Only 1,000 copies, personally signed by Gisele, will be available, as well as an Art Edition which will go on sale for $700.

‘Gisele’ will be available to buy online from taschen.com in November.
