Architectural Digest US October 2013 (1)

First, a caveat: Anyone expecting the home of supermodel Gisele Bündchen and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to be a lavish pleasure dome replete with sultry sirens and gridiron gods cavorting around the pool is in for a serious letdown. Likewise, those who imagine a sprawling palace staffed with a battalion of liveried footmen proffering protein shakes on silver trays have also missed the mark. The reality of Bündchen and Brady’s life in Los Angeles’s Brentwood neighborhood is far more—dare we say it?—normal.
“I like simplicity and coziness,” says the renowned Brazilian beauty. “I want to live in a place that feels like a real home, where you can put your feet up on the couch and just relax.” Brady seconds the notion: “Gisele and I have eight sisters between us, and there are lots of kids. We built this house as a sanctuary for our family—a place where we can enjoy being together.”
The couple’s L.A. story began roughly six years ago, when Bündchen and Brady started making regular excursions to the sunny shores of Southern California during the NFL off-season. On one of those trips, prior to their marriage in 2009, they discovered an open lot with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean near the house they were renting. They immediately knew the patch of land would one day be home.

“It was important for us to plant roots for our family, and since we both enjoy the creative process, we decided to start from scratch,” Brady recalls. (The couple has a three-year-old son, Benjamin, and a baby daughter, Vivian Lake, along with six-year-old John, Brady’s son from his previous relationship with actress Bridget Moynahan.)
To help refine their vision of domestic bliss, the pair engaged architect Richard Landry and one of his frequent collaborators, interior designer Joan Behnke. “I’m all about team dynamics and putting the right people together,” says the future Hall of Famer and owner of three Super Bowl rings. “We knew Richard and Joan could take us where we wanted to go without imposing a signature look. They understood that we wanted a comfortable house, not a style statement.”
For Bündchen and Brady living well also means living responsibly. Bündchen is a global ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme, and the couple is acutely aware of issues related to the conservation of natural resources. One of their primary imperatives when building their home was to use as many recycled components as possible and to implement energy and water systems that would ameliorate the family’s impact on the land. In addition to composting, gray-water technology for irrigation, and environmentally friendly construction materials, the pair installed two substantial arrays of photovoltaic solar panels (one next to the garden, the other on the roof of the house) that would meet all of the property’s electricity needs. “From the beginning we asked everyone involved in the design and construction, ‘How can we make it as sustainable as possible?’” Bündchen says.

HAVE you ever heard a supermodel sing? Well, Gisele Bündchen has given it a go in the new H&M campaign and – much like everything else she does – she’s pretty good at it.
The supermodel – who was Forbes’ highest earner this year for the seventh year in a row – will model the company’s autumn/winter 2013 collection in television and online advertising debuting on September 12, and the voice you hear as she struts her stuff will be her own.

The song, “All Day And All Of The Night” by The Kinks, will be available for free download from hm.com, and will also be on iTunes, raising money for UNICEF. For every single download from iTunes, H&M will make a donation to UNICEF to enable the purchase of vaccines for children.

“I am so excited to be the face of H&M this autumn,” Gisele said. “I love the street style look, and that we can raise funds for a good cause. I hope everyone downloads my song!”

and here’s what Gisele talked about the song in H&M Fall 2013 magazine:

What made you want to record a song for H&M ?
I thought it would be a fun experience. It’s not everyday someone invites you to record a song – I couldn’t pass that up!

Have you always enjoyed singing ?
As a child I used to sing in the school choir. I love music – it makes me feel happy and free.

colcci-2008-fallwinter-18

Gisele Bundchen can finally return to Brazilian catwalks. It is rumored that that the top is preparing to attend the next SPFW, again at the invitation of Colcci, which was brand poster girl for six years. The Colcci , in turn, confirms not – but does not dispute – information. With the 2014 summer campaign photographed recently, says the brand has not yet mounted the casting for the show of their winter collection 2014 which takes place between October 28 and November 1.
According to information Matheus Evangelista to SiteRG , Gisele was already being tipped to return this since 2013 but the pregnancy of her second child made ​​the brand postpone the return. On occasion, the South African model Candice Swanepoel took over the post – she photographed campaigns and even participated in parades in Sao Paulo, all because Alessandra Ambrosio also went through a second pregnancy, and was removed from the catwalks.
Information and internal conversations within the group itself AMC Textile, which the Colcci part, has confirmed the rumors. Let’s wait for more!
