Guest Post: The Season of Gisele
Type A Supermodel.
A lean mean (fat grilling) machine…and I’m not talking about George Foreman.
Gisele Bundchen everybody.
The face of Spring Summer 2012.
Heralding a long staying power in the modelling world, Gisele has certainly been around the block a few times – 1994 was the year she debuted! But boy her appeal still lives on, what with her booking half a dozen campaigns for this season alone. Versace, Givenchy, Salvatore Ferragamo, Esprit, Versace jeans – just your average run-of-the-mill fashion labels…
But what is her secret? What is this modelling x-factor she possesses? What is it about this superhuman beauty that keeps her in demand?
The modelling industry continuously churns out new faces. From Karlie Kloss to Georgia May Jagger, Miranda Kerr to Rosie Huntington-Whitely. Famed as they are, none of them have credentials that quite match up to those of Gisele. Perhaps all of her positive ‘Namaste’; the yoga-practising, organic-eating, child-rearing (and ultimately patronising) ‘I am the sh*t’ attitude is really working for her? Who knows?
All I know is the lady’s got it and she is in it for the long run!
It is undeniable that she works her ass off (excuse the pun!) to keep her body in shape. A business woman, a mother, equally addicted to hard work and spiritual dedication…she knows what she wants from life and how to manifest that life for herself. Smugness, superiority and self-adoration certainly works in her favour also.
Guess it’s true what they say, a hard neck will get you places.
Forget the up-an’-coming wannabes, the awkward, gap-toothed, candy-coloured hair models. Classic beauty, superhuman attributes and serene sex appeal are the key to steadfast staying power in the world of fashion and advertising.
Well done Gisele.
