How the Legends list works:
Every so often a model comes along who stands the test of time and leaves a lasting impression on the industry as a whole. With storied careers that hit every high note and reputations for professionalism and excellence these women are the standard by which other models are judged. More often than not their career trajectories push them outside the world of fashion and into television, film, entrepreneurship and philanthropy, transforming them into household names and even corporate entities.

More than anything it is longevity and widespread recognition that puts the legends in their own league. Some of the criteria we evaluate for this list include the following:

– At least 15 years of high profile work with top magazines, photographers and brands.
– Media presence outside of the fashion industry and widespread name recognition.
– Work that is considered iconic in nature i.e.. campaigns, covers & television commercials.
– Must have had at least one long term contract with fashion or beauty brand.

Milla Jovovich

La Bundchen is more than just a model, she’s a full-fledged business. With top tier campaigns and covers whenever she wants them and record setting series of contracts Gisele remains undoubtedly in demand. Add to this the beauty’s unofficial status as a national ambassador for Brazil, complete with appearances at the World Cup and photoshoots alongside futbol’s biggest stars and you begin to understand her status as a cultural icon. In the world of fashion the name Gisele denotes a professionalism, energy and attitude that is downright infectious – no wonder she was selected as the face of the classic Chanel No. 5 – an honor typically reserved for cinema stars.

Believe it: not the Gisele Bündchen escaped from a heartbreak

The über is our August cover. And in the quest for stories that help tell a little as she is, we believe, an old boyfriend who didn’t give a damn about her.

Gisele Bundchen looks perfect, right? It is very likely that not sue, I think even if I never swore, sure there’s too lazy to get up to exercise in the winter and, well, does it make sense to think of Gisele jealous of someone? With anger, jealousy, bad mood? No, no, no and no. But believe me: she had an unrequited love!

And it wasn’t the choice for modeling career that left her free father’s expectations, like any mortal. Prepared to meet the top facets never before revealed? Some US business around here. Others, you’ll discover in the August edition of Glamour, which is mara, and arrives at newsstands from day 30.

She was upstaged by his first love at the age of 15 years.

(Second article published in 2009 in the newspaper Zero Hora, when Gisele had 15 years-and I’ve lived in SP-, returned from vacation to Horizontina. Bogadinho had 17. They were former classmates of the school class Frederick Logemann and Jorge were! It was her first kiss. “That Kiss was the most special thing in my life. I was a year dreaming about him. That kid gorgeous, wonderful, charming, mischievous, that I loved so much, that esnobava me,” said Gisele publication in the year 2000, when it was an international top! After that, she returned to New York, and he moved with his family to Palmas, Tocantins. Never saw each other again.)

“The quiet girl and Gise into hers. We’ve always been friends before we can be together, she always rode a bike with me. Let her fly, and she loved it. After our first kiss, we spoke for a period before she left Brazil ‘s. At the end of year we used to speak at Christmas and new year, because I was coming to spend their holidays in Florianópolis (Santa Catarina). For sure I was marked with this story, was a teenage passion and stayed a while thinking about her. My co-workers, friends and especially my students think it that much. But I’ve already lost a girlfriend at the time because of this story.”

Alessandro Bogado, teacher and owner of Academy of jiu-jitsu and self-defense (Oh, and happily married today)

She had a career plan drawn up by father, Valdir

“After a time when Gisele was in São Paulo, Valdir sent the Agency a questionnaire which asked which were strong and weak daughter TLD landmarks. Not only that: it was a vast questionnaire. And I’m the one who replied. The biggest problem was the power supply. Gisele ate a lot of crap! There were bags and bags of chips, that pipoquinha sweet … She didn’t gain an ounce, but I didn’t know what could happen in the future (well, today we know that she changed the food, so it was never a problem). Hence, in 98, Valdir went to New York to talk with John Casablancas, owner of the Elite at the time. Talk, don’t … He was doing the business plan of the career of Gisele is more like it. Demanded that he determined what would happen in one, two and three years of work. And if forecasts proved, because in 1999 she was chosen the model of the year by American Vogue.”

Zeca Abreu, Director of New Faces of the Elite during the early years of the career of Gisele

Sonia Rykiel Fall 2014
Photographer: Juergen Teller
Style: Katie Grand
Make-up: none
Hair: none

IN THE ROUGH: Sonia Rykiel has tapped Juergen Teller for its fall advertising campaign starring Gisele Bündchen.

The Brazilian model is seen without makeup in the black-and-white shots, taken in an artist’s studio. The images mark a stark departure from the French fashion brand’s previous two advertising campaigns, which featured graphic colored backdrops by graphic design duo M/M (Paris).

The fall shoot was art directed and styled by Katie Grand, who said she took her cue from pictures of the label’s founder, Sonia Rykiel, in the Seventies.

“They were very elegant black-and-white snapshots of her in the studio and on a car, and reminded me of Juergen Teller’s work. Once Juergen had agreed to work with us, we wanted to work with a woman with Madame Rykiel’s joie de vivre, and the obvious choice was Gisele,” she said.

“Juergen does not often shoot in black-and-white and we asked him to shoot film to give an authenticity to the images,” Grand added.

Gisele Bundchen is well accustomed to being under the spotlight and having all eyes upon her, but on Sunday the Brazilian supermodel was unable hold back her emotions. Shortly before the final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ kicked off at the Maracana, she presented the World Cup trophy to the public, which would soon gain a new custodian and become German property for the next four years.

Alongside Carles Puyol, a World Cup winner in South Africa in 2010, the ambassador of the Louis Vuitton brand, which produces the exclusive case in which the trophy is transported, carried it to the centre of the pitch. “Basically we were presenting the Trophy to the finalists and to the world,” the model told FIFA.com. “Puyol represented Spain, the outgoing champions, and I represented my home country, Brazil.”

During the rehearsals for the historic moment, Bundchen was keen to talk football with the recently retired former Barcelona defender. “He’s a lovely person, really sweet. We had a great chat about football. He told me about his playing days and we talked about the World Cup, some of the teams and players involved and about some of the biggest moments in the history of football. I learned a lot!”

Gisele said she was a fan of watching and playing all sports, and a big believer in the power of sport to unite people. “I’ve always played sport, ever since I was little. I played volleyball and I believe sport teaches you a lot, such as teamwork, respect and discipline.” As well as the lessons it can provide, the model said that sport has a magic ability to bring different people together. “Just look at the World Cup. The whole world comes together to watch the event and to give their support. It’s beautiful to see.”

“I’m honoured to have been chosen to represent my country, because I love Brazil. When it comes to football, the Brazilians really wear the shirt, don’t they?” Indeed, throughout the month the people of the country wore the shirt and contributed to one of the most unforgettable World Cups ever. They may not have ended the tournament lifting the trophy like they dreamed, but Brazil certainly had the ideal representative to present it to the world.

balenciaga f-w 2014 (5)

Alexander Wang’s goal at Balenciaga is not to adapt but to “break the mold.” And for his third runway season at the storied house, the young designer did just that—adding knitwear with new hybrid treatments to the mix and experimenting with asymmetrical shapes that play on the brand’s classic codes. In the latest Fall 2014 campaign, shot by Steven Klein, Wang continues to push boundaries and rock the status quo by depicting Gisele Bündchen—a model made a legend thanks to her feminine curves and beachy waves—with a masculine cropped cut. The 360-degree view we’re given of her shorn and slicked-back strands in a series of cracked mirrors makes each image all the more intriguing. Similar to an audience questioning how a magician pulls a rabbit out of thin air, the viewer is left wondering how Wang stripped the super of her hallmark attributes to pull this one off. Here, the artistic director does the unthinkable and reveals his secrets exclusively to Style.com.— Amber Kallor

How does this campaign represent your vision for Balenciaga?

Compared to the first two campaigns that I did with the brand, we really wanted this one to break the mold a little bit. The first one was an homage and more austere, and we never really showed the face. And for the last one, with Daria [Werbowy], it became this idea of transformation. I like this idea of taking iconic supermodels and showing them in a new light and a different way. Specifically with Gisele, she’s known for her hair, so we said, “Let’s show Gisele like she’s never been shown before and this idea of mystery and vanity.” She’s in this black, mirrored room and she’s breaking out of it. In the first season, we had the marble veins [on the runway and in the collection], and then it became the ivy, and then this season the cracked glass—so it was a continuing thread that tied them together as well.

Does the cracked glass represent breaking the mold of what Balenciaga once was as a house?

I mean, in a sense. Yes, I guess vaguely. I think there’s something so beautiful when there’s an organic touch to it. I love this idea of veins in the marble or things that [are] graphic [but still] organic. That element is very interesting to me because there is a rawness to it.

Where did your inspiration stem from for these visuals?

We worked with Gisele on the show, she closed the show, and we really wanted her. Gisele has been around and shown in so many different ways. So we said, “OK, we want to show Gisele in a way that people have never seen her before.” That was the first goal for us to achieve, and that’s very hard for someone that has done almost everything and has worked with so many different brands and people! It really started with this idea of transforming Gisele and capturing what we felt was different about her being part of the Balenciaga brand. We love showing her really uncompromised and that ultimate extreme beauty breaking out of a mirror. It’s almost beauty so powerful [it can’t be contained]. And also to empower women to cut their hair and feel confident and feel beautiful and feel desired.

We’ve seen Gisele recently and her waves are still very much intact. Was there a bit of Photoshop magic at play within this campaign?

I mean, yes, of course. There was a whole team involved. We had a specialist [Jane Choi] come in who actually works on movie sets doing prosthetics. We spent two days making a prosthetic bald cap on a Gisele body double. And then we had to get another body double who we had to give the exact same haircut. So for every picture we took with Gisele, we had to take another picture with the body double. Then we fused those two together. It was the first time I’ve ever worked in that way, and [master retoucher] Pascal Dangin, he’s just incredible. He’s a true artist and a painter. When he was showing me the mock-ups, I was blown away by what he was able to achieve before we even got to the shoot.

How hard was it to achieve the finished result, as you see the hair from so many different angles?

The funny thing was that Gisele had to come in three hours before call time just to put the bald cap on. We had to wrap the hair very, very flat to her head, put the bald cap on, and then paint the bald cap to the exact same skin color as Gisele. It was basically like putting her into what you usually see on sets like X-Men. Every time we shot the picture it was kind of crazy because it was always just shooting her with the bald cap on and then having to visualize a bald Gisele. Then we’d go in and shoot the body double and that whole process. In the end, seeing it all come together was really magical.

Since we’re seeing Gisele in an entirely new way, who is the Balenciaga girl and how has she evolved since you arrived at the house?

I feel that for me right now the most important thing is to show this idea of empowerment, and people always talk about confidence and strength. It was a bit more understated, and this collection was [one] where I was really breaking through a lot of barriers and connotations, and I wanted the campaign and visuals to represent that. It’s kind of like a continuing dialogue. I never like to put exactly into words who the girl is because the collections speak for themselves. Also, there is something that is celebrated about individuality, and I like that any woman can come to Balenciaga and make it her own.

What do you think Cristóbal Balenciaga would say about seeing a woman with a shaved head in one of his campaigns?

I don’t know! He was always one to look at women in a different way. I think that’s something that I share in terms of an outlook. If he were living today in our world and our society, and wanting to do something that was different and open up some eyes…hopefully I did him proud.

In terms of Balenciaga, what’s next? What are your plans for expansion?

We have the fragrance [B. Balenciaga, pronounced Bee-dot] that’s coming out this fall. That’s going to be big for me because I’ve never done a fragrance before. And we have a couple of new launches, so it’s a little too early to say, but you’ll just have to stay tuned!
