A TRUE ICON: Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell on Gisele Bündchen: “She is the only true remaining supermodel!”

Besides her gorgeous looks, what are the other ingredients of her success?

Bündchen-power: chocolate and silence

In an interview with the Brazilian edition of Glamour, Gisele agreed to share her formula for blending success with inner peace and harmony.

“I practice Transcendental Meditation twice a day. Every morning and lunchtime or evening, for about 20 minutes,” Bündchen told the magazine.

“I’m not very superstitious. I believe in the power of intention and thought, so always try to focus on the positive side of any situation.”

And food? What goes on the table of a supermodel?

“I’ve changed my diet a lot in recent years,” she admitted. “Today I prefer my food as healthy and natural as possible. However, dark chocolate is still my temptation!”

World-changing beauty

Since 2004, she has been the highest-paid fashion model in the world, and is the sixteenth richest woman in the entertainment industry (as of 2007).

As of 2014, she is listed as the 89th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.

And the beauty from Brazil knows how to put that power to good use. Bündchen is the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme and supports many charities including Save the Children, Red Cross and Doctors without Borders.


Gisele Bündchen has appeared in Vogue and in ads for Victoria’s Secret, dated actor Leonardo DiCaprio and married NFL star Tom Brady. Bündchen has also ventured into acting, doing a supporting role in Taxi and in The Devil Wears Prada.
