GISELE may have only given birth six months ago but you certainly wouldn't know it as she returned to the catwalk yesterday. The model paraded in her native Brazil as a part of Sao Paulo Fashion Week.
"I was very nervous," Bundchen said, according to the website of the Brazilian newspaper Estado de Sao Paulo. "But I am very happy, everything went right."
The 29-year-old model walked the catwalk for clothing label Colcci. Gisele has modelled for the brand before, having featured in its campaign in April. The model, who is reported to be the best paid in the world, is a regular at the Brazilian event although missed one in January after giving birth to her son Benjamin in December last year.
The event attracted a host of high-profile models including Paris Hilton who walked for Triton, Raquel Zimmermann who modelled for Animale, and Eva Herzigova who opened Adriana Degreas earlier in the week.
Fashion is not about utility. It is merely a piece of iconography, to express an individuals identity.
