Cheer up Brazil! Gisele Bundchen: A sexy retrospective

Since Brazil needs as much positivity as possible this week, we thought that reminding them that they still have Gisele Bundchen would make her the perfect choice for this week’s “Throwback Thursday.”

Click on to see just how Gisele has changed throughout the years.

Now 33 years-old and married with two kids Gisele Bundchen has changed a lot over the years (just check out the video above, wow), but she’s still one of the most popular models in the world as well as one of the richest.

In 1999, Vogue called Gisele “The Return of the Sexy Model” after the modeling world had been previously overtaken by the “heroin chic” look of the era. Of course Gisele became a household name when she became a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2000, a job she held until sometime in 2007.

Previous Throwbacks: Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum & more!

Over the years Bundchen has been called the highest-paid model in the world more than once and even today, in 2014, she was still listed as the 89th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes magazine. So see, Brazil, you don’t have it so bad. Even if she is married to one of our “football” players and not one of your “futbol” stars.
