It’s not that much of a shock considering her absence from the mainstream catwalks over the last few seasons, but still, we didn’t see it coming! The world’s highest paid supermodel for the past 11 years, Gisele is considered the modern ‘super’, able to balance lucrative endorsements, ad campaigns and the runway with ease.
No official word yet as to why she’s quitting, but smart money is on her spending more time with her hubby Tom Brady and their two children. Oh and in case you thought she’d be twiddling her thumbs in retirement, think again. She still has her footwear and lingerie brands to look after, in addition to being a Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations.
