After twenty years on the runway, the world’s biggest and highest-paid supermodel, Gisele Bundchen, retired from the catwalk in 2016.
The leggy Brazilian is no longer walking runways, but she still appears in editorial and commercial campaigns for companies like Chanel, Balenciaga, H&M, and Carolina Herrara. She's a multi-millionaire and could have retired completely, but Gisele has maintained her equity in brands like Gisele Bundchen Intimates and Grendene shoes.
We love Gisele as she is today—a modern, multi-lingual fashion business juggernaut—but our favorite era? Her first decade in the spotlight, when she was young, hungry and on the rise. Here are ten of Gisele's most iconic looks from the nineties and yes, it seems beachwear was her forté.
