On holiday with her family in Costa Rica, she showed her tummy off in a silver bikini as she played on the beach with her two-and-a-half-year-old son, Benjamin. The supermodel, who has five sisters, has previously spoken about wanting a big family with husband Tom Brady – himself one of four siblings. SWEET!
Gisele’s Model Search
She launched her own model search among her native Brazil’s slums this week. Called Top CUFA – which stands for Central Única das Favelas, or Central Union of Slums – the search will focus on finding model talent from the country’s most underprivileged areas. The contest, which aims “to boost slum dwellers’ self-esteem,” will narrow down applicants to one finalist from each of Brazil’s 27 states, before crowning one girl the Top CUFA.
“I feel privileged to be the sponsor of this project,” Bundchen said, revealing that she had been rejected by 42 agents in London at the start of her career. “I was finally taken on the 43rd try!”
The winner will receive a year’s worth of Pantene hair products – a brand for which Bundchen is spokesmodel in Brazil – a year-long modelling contract, and the crown that Bundchen won at her first Carnival.
GREAT HUMAN-ISTIC NEWS!
