The full name of which has become known as the supermodel Gisele Bundchen is Gisele Caroline Nonnenmacher Bündchen. She was born on the 20 of July 1980 in Horizontina a town in the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul in Brazil, as the daughter of a German family.
At age 14 Gisele Bundchen was discovered by Elite Model Agency during a visit to McDonalds with her father in Sao Paulo. Gisele Bundchen is 1.80 cm tall and her measurements are 89-60-89.

From 2000 to 2005, the supermodel was romantically involved with actor Leonardo DiCaprio, the Hollywood film star who played in films like Titanic, The Beach, Gangs of New York and Inception. Since 2009, Gisele Bundchen is married to football player Tom Brady. With him, she has 2 childs, a son and a daughter.
For several years, Gisele Bundchen has worked successfully with the Grendene sandals manufacturer and its brand Ipanema. Each year a separate Ipanema Gisele Bündchen collection is launched that creates trends. Gisele Bundchen puts her fame also for aid projects and environmental protection. Part of the proceeds of each Ipanema Gisele Bündchen collection come below various conservation projects to Good.
With the purchase of a sandal, the SOS Mata Atlantica Foundation is supported with its program Florestas do Futuro (Forests of the Future). With this program, existing forests are protected for 5 years, in order to breed new seeds, which are urgently needed for new forests. "Your feet will bear fruit." Ipanema planted 36,000 trees in the tropical rainforest - all native tree species that are threatened with extinction. The first tree of Grendene & Gisele Bündchen project was planted by Gisele herself.
Gisele Bundchen and the manufacturer of Ipanema sandals Grendene assist with parts of the proceeds of this collection, the Tamar Project (Tamar is the abbreviation for Tartaruga Marinha = sea turtle). The Tamar Project is for 30 years on the coast of Brazil. Since then it is committed to the conservation of certain sea turtles. There are already 10 million baby turtles released into the sea free.
