She is often credited with single-handedly ending the heroin chic era of the ’90s, and for that we are eternally grateful because we love a woman with some curves.

Gisele Bundchen has been on the cover of hundreds of magazines, appeared on countless billboards and is the face of more than 20 brands. She is one of the world’s wealthiest and most famous models, making Tom Brady a very, very lucky man.
