With over 500 magazine covers to her name—making her second only to Princess Diana in terms of glossy exposure!—Gisele Bündchen’s unbeatable spirit has landed her at the top of the supermodel food chain. Discovered in São Paulo at the age of 14, the Brazilian beauty has since mastered every aspect of the industry: walking the Victoria’s Secret runway as an Angel, closing shows at countless fashion weeks, singing for H&M and even acting (remember her role in The Devil Wears Prada?).
And while Forbes lists her as of the world’s highest paid models, Bündchen is much more than a pretty face. She also became a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program in 2009 and was named one of Forbes‘ 30 Most Generous Celebrities for her donation to the Red Cross for Haiti Relief.
She is also extremely accessible, thanks to her Instagram account—her feed is full of kissy selfies with hubby Tom Brady and hilarious #TBT photos. Her Instagrams do tend to leave one envious, however—if I could arrange a Freaky Friday-style switcheroo with anyone, it’d probably be Gisele.
