Gisele Bündchen has a smile that could cross a street, legs that go for days and a tan that never fades. The Brazilian supermodel turned actress, author and activist once-upon-a-time dated Leo for (a touch longer than) one hot minute and more recently, did an interview for Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show covered in puppies. “Pup Quiz:”, Fallon called it. Three-hours-worth-of-You-Tube we call it.

Bündchen’s spent years calling Boston home but can’t shake her hometown accent. She grew up as one of five girls in Southern Brazil before landing in the Big Apple in ‘96, fluent in Portuguese and little else. She went on to become one of the most sought-after models – ever.

Bündchen’s got that Bond girl look about her. This angel is unafraid and sleek and ready for anything. A sparkle in her eye and a spring in her step, this mother of two holds the record for the most Brazilian VOGUE covers of all time.

She told Vanity Fair in 2014 she had “another two years, maximum” left in her but she’s still walking the runways 14 years later with no sign of slowing. Blonde bombshell and fellow super Claudia Schiffer dobbed her in to VOGUE as the last supermodel standing – and any wonder. With seemingly endless campaigns, causes and catwalks in her diary.

So, a tribute to Bündchen’s style – and how you too can dress like the last super standing.

NY glam

Taxi! Gisele Bündchen knows how to do New York Glam like no other. Think slinky, think silky, think sexy. If nightlife isn’t your thing or you don’t have a Red Carpet event to attend anytime soon, make like Giselle but ditch the heels for white kicks and a denim blazer.

It’s time to get wet

Summer fun seems to be Bündchen’s mantra. Surf-ready almost always, she’s often found pool or beach side. Forever bikini ready, she’s a fan of simple and flattering triangle cuts.

A summer dress to live in

The trick is to keep it interesting with a print or a texture. The golden rule? Make sure it’s a shade you can wear all summer long. Lunch date here you come.

Black, it’s back

An all-black look is an essential for every wardrobe. The little black dress is hand, sure, but elevate your look a cut above with wide legs pants and pumps. Super chic. If you want to take it down a level, swap out the pumps for black flats.

Look good in leather

The leather jackets is a must-have to toughen up any look and keep the winter at bay. Team it with a simple white T-shirt or sweatshirt, or elevate your look with a silk combo.

Keep your look one step ahead with new styles each day.
