Gisele Bündchen is the highest paid model in the world, nicknamed the “heavenly body”. A true fashion icon, she is now the subject of a large-format photographic book that summarises her prodigious career through cult photos. The book is published by Taschen and sells for 2,000 euros a copy: a real museum piece. It includes photographs by David LaChapelle, Peter Lindbergh, Steven Meisel, Corinne Day and many others who have helped make Bündchen the icon she has become. Gisele’s stunning images, from her rise in the late 1990s to her most recent campaigns, are accompanied by personal tributes from her friends, family and collaborators.
