SHE SPEAKS: Gisele Bündchen has the last word. Today, the 34-year-old Brazilian model posted a photo to her Instagram account of her 14-year-old self at her very first runway show, above a caption stating the following: “Today, after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business.” Bündchen touched down in Brazil yesterday to strut the runways of São Paulo Fashion Week.
But can one really count on Bündchen not making a runway appearance ever again? Never say never. As WWD reported March 18, an agent at IMG had previously stated that Bündchen “may have to do shows — special projects — in the future,” and that “the word retirement is a little bit of an extreme word.”
