The Super Bowl is almost here and this year the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks will battle it out on the field. The New England Patriots are led by veteran quarterback Tom Brady – an international heartthrob. Even more attractive yet is his wife, supermodel Gisele Bündchen, who will hopefully be at the game on Sunday.
There's hardly anything fashionable about the Super Bowl itself, but Bündchen is known for her impeccable sense of style. Additionally, she's immediately recognizable by her flowing locks, voluptuous figure and striking cheekbones. In preparation for the game, find out how to dress like Mrs. Brady.
The back story
Gisele Bündchen was born in Brazil in 1980 and moved to New York City at age 17 to pursue a modeling career after having her debut at New York Fashion Week the year before. Bündchen's career really took off in 2000 when she signed a $25 million contract with Victoria's Secret. That same year, she was deemed the Most Beautiful Girl in the World by Rolling Stone magazine. Throughout the following seven years that Bündchen remained a Victoria's Secret Angel, she continued growing in fame and wealth. Forbes magazine declared her the highest paid model in 2005. By 2007, Bündchen decided to leave Victoria's Secret and attempted an acting career – which wasn't a success.
Bündchen and Tom Brady married in 2009 and had their son, Benjamin, the same year. Their daughter Vivian was born a few years later. Since embarking on married life, she has modeled selectively, including a controversial nude shoot for Vogue Paris in 2012. Her attention has turned to philanthropic efforts, including water conservation and plant recovery in Rio Grande do Sul and donations to preserve the Brazilian rainforest.
Although she's not strutting her stuff down catwalks as often these days, Bündchen hasn't stopped dressing to impress whenever she heads out. Whether she's rocking killer street style in the Boston area or posing on red carpets, you can bet she's looking flawless.
For one Chanel dinner in New York City during October 2014, Bündchen wore a short silver dress with pointy pumps. The gem-encrusted number was accessorized perfectly with diamond hoops, similar to these Round White Crystal Hoop Earrings at Fine Jewelers. This dinner was held in honor of "No. 5 The Film" by Baz Luhrmann, Style Bistro reported. According to Vogue magazine, other models were present that night, including Karlie Kloss, Poppy Delevingne and Gigi Hadid. British singer Lily Allen made an appearance as well.
Back in 2009, Bündchen attended the Rainforest Alliance Gala at the American Museum of Natural History. The plummeting neckline on her strappy silver dress was as striking as the bright orange earrings she paired it with. If you like to go bold with your accessories, perhaps you'd like a pair of Original Star K Heart Shaped Simulated Orange Mexican Fire Opal Hanging Hook Love Earrings. With bronzed skin, minimal makeup and shiny golden tresses, it's likely she stole the show that night.
Earlier that year, Bündchen was seen tossing up a peace sign outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. She posed on the red carpet as celebrities arrived for the "Model as Muse: Embodying Fashion" Costume Institute Gala in May. Bündchen wore a navy blue bodycon dress that was covered in sequins. She accessorized with a small, dark blue clutch and a pair of diamond earrings that played off her new engagement ring. Want your own?
