Caras Chile March 14, 2014

The most sought after model in the world makes her debut as a face of the new fragrance by Carolina Herrera. And in the midst of the maelstrom of fashion week. The Brazilian of the 300 million dollars says that her success is more will than it is genetic. We speak of luxury, surgeries and desire to return to Pucón.
As Karl, Anna,Patrick. Gisele is one of the few people in the industry who does not need last name. She is to the world of fashion that Messi is to football and Rihanna is to music. The best paid, which breaks schemes and that in Brazil, her home country, generates the same excitement as Ronaldo and Pelé together. The number one in the list of Forbes models, with a fortune of $ 300 million.

“Gisele Bündchen returned to the world of fashion glamour of curvy women”, said the designer Alexander McQueen when she went up to the catwalk in 1997. And since then her style has marked the course of the mannequins. The girl from Horizontina who dreamed of becoming a professional volleyball player rescued the supermodels of anonymity when it was discovered at a McDonald’s at the age of thirteen. Soon after she landed in New York and one of the first people who received her was Carolina Herrera: “I didn’t speak a word of English and she made me feel at home,” recalls Gisele. That relationship today materialized in 212 Vip Rose, the new fragrance from the creator of Venezuelan origin, and the reason why Gisele is ready to give a series of interviews with the most prestigious media, which will start past three in the afternoon and end at 22.30.

Faces will be the penultimate magazine to enter the room of 214 Lafayette, an exclusive residence in Soho New York. It’s been six hours since she started the event, and any human being would be tired. She would shudder in the eyes, and in the mood. But Gisele (33) is radiant. As a perfect hostess offers champagne, water, or coffee, and then shoots the phrase that will leave me in shock: “Oh my god!, your hair is gorgeous”. She has cream, lingerie and Hawaiian with her name, which now has just closed a millionaire contract as the world image of a brand of shampoo, has the perfect formula to put in the pocket the umpteenth person with that agenda must comply.

Her face and body seem to be carved and sculpted by hand. She is taller than one think, more skinny and much, much more cute. If you have wrinkles, makeup too well. If you have ever had a pimple, is not brand. She is dressed in black, as if it were on way to a party. Because that is what the fragrance that is her face. Glamour, celebration and luxury. Little to do with the image of a mother breast-feeding her same viralizó days ago via his Twitter account, showing nursing to its 15-month-old daughter surrounded by hairdressers, makeup artists and assistants.

-Perfume 212 Vip Rose speaks of a VIP list. It is difficult to imagine one without your name in the header… do you think that it has helped you become a supermodel in a decade?
-I think that my authenticity helps, because I am a person that I’m always trying to get to know myself. And when one looks inward, in introspective way, one delights. I am no longer the person who was twenty, ten or five years ago. And luckily I changed, because that means that I could evolve. I did many things, I said many things, that I took decisions different to other models.

– How do you leave the Victoria’s Secret fashion shows?
-Exactly. I am a person of great intuition, for years that I was working with them and it was time to renew the contract. Came the day in which I had to answer them and didn’t know what to do, there was something internally that did not convince me… Everyone told me to follow, that if I was good to what change. Then at night I grabbed two papers and wrote in one ‘yes’ and another ‘no’. And asked God to help me solve what was best for my life. The next morning, with eyes closed, I chose a role and was the one which said ‘no’. So I grabbed the phone, I called them, tell them thanks for the eight wonderful years, and not signed. It had nothing to do with the company, but with intuition, an inner call I could not refuse. When I’m looking for answers and can not find them I start to breathe slowly and look inward. Many times I’ve had to make big decisions, and try to be very aware.

-Resigning means also that will come something better, isn’t it?
-I I Victoria´s secret and there I met my husband, I could invest much time in that relationship is something that would have not been able to because the contract required many hours of work. In fact, usually the Victoria´s Secret models only work for them and I was also doing other things… In life everything is about setting priorities, and is a decision that I do not regret. Life always shows us the way, choice of one looking at it or make the distracted. If I am annoying, if something in my body is not good, I have to find out what it is. And when one becomes the question of honest and sincere way, the answer is unambiguous and concrete.

– But you really think that your plus is not beauty but personality?
-I have spent twenty years working and I am here because I have joy and I am grateful. I think that when you have that energy in life everything is back. We are energy, and all that is is what we receive.

Gisele seems to have extensively studied speech. It is not very fond of interviews but today has given one after another, and possibly in all said the same thing. She spoke of his first cover in Vogue Paris, her work with Karl Lagerfeld and, of course, shooting the commercial 212 Vip Carolina Herrera, where is seen happy passing it well in the Big Apple. But days before the launch, the world saw her breastfeeding her second daughter Vivian, product of her marriage to the prominent Tom Brady football player. A little girl who already has more than one year.

-What do you think of the models and actresses who are interned in the gym or in the operating room shortly after giving birth?
-Everyone has their different process. You don’t know, and I don’t know either, what each person has passed. Attempt is not to judge, because everyone knows why it does what it does. But for me, I looked at my mother who always worked hard and we breastfed all and is a full woman with values of family, this is normal for us.

– But you are a model, and breastfeeding brings consequences. Not it gives you scare that your breasts fall off?
-For what if not to breastfeed? That is what makes us special women, we have the opportunity to lead a life and after feeding her. It is an experience that I am not going to give up, and I’m not interested in what happens to my body. Motherhood is the most important. I dont judge what others do not do, I repeat only what I learned. Already has a year and three months, and continued breastfeeding… Now the milk is running out a bit and makes me sad. It is a nice feeling, a very large and unique connection.

-Then for you the luxury does not pass by the money you earn, but on the other hand…
-The silver can not buy time with affection. I believe that the true luxury of these times that are so fast is to have the freedom to be authentic, have time to reflect and get to know. We receive lots of information and one can lose within that. Then, stop for a second and realize before deciding what to do is essential.

-What is your beauty routine?
-A combination of things. First is the spirit, because if a person is upset by its problems and focuses on that, it shows in the face, is in its power. I am sensitive. My children are healthy and that’s what makes me happy, so I am well. The rest are pure experiences that have no importance.

-In your forrado surely there are diapers, what more?
-Many diapers! I like aromatherapy, then I have different types of oils, Concealer, lip balm of dark circles and sunglasses to disguise the fatigue in the face. Usually I also have a perfume roll on and almond oils to moisturize hands. I don’t like creams that have much perfume so much, I prefer the more natural scents.

The music sounds strong on the third floor of 214 Lafayette. Carolina Herrera of Baez, daughter of the designer, and other celebrities are waiting with champagne, goats salted and chestnuts to the hostess to make her triumphal entry. On a giant screen projected the commercial perfume and guests capture the time photos Polaroid. Press policymakers who witness the interview offered to make one last question.

-A few years ago you were in Chile next to Leo DiCaprio…
-Pucon, what a wonderful place! My best friend is from Chile, he is called Nino Muñoz and is photographer. We met when I was 16 years old. I always say that I die of desire to return, it is one of the most beautiful landscapes I remember.
