In a move that has surely shocked plenty of industry insiders, Gisele Bündchen has announced her retirement from the runway. After more than 20 years of walking in shows for every designer from Jason Wu to Chanel, the 34-year-old will make her depature this year.
The most surprising part: She has chosen to make her last runway appearance in Brazilian brand Colcci's F/W 15 show during São Paolo Fashion Week in April. While the label isn't necessarily a household name in North America, Colcci has been partnering with Gisele for years, casting her in campaigns and runway shows alike. It makes sense that the model would want to close out her runway career with a brand she's close to, in her native country.
