She hass just topped the latest Forbes list of the world’s top models in the last financial year – coming in miles ahead number 2, Kate Moss – but there is no rest for the wicked with Gisele Bundchen launching Dolce & Gabanna’s new fragrance, The One, at Saks Fifth Avenue yesterday.
According to The Daily, Gisele was swamped with screaming photographers and equally vivacious fans. “She crosses that model/celebrity zone,” said Glenn McMahon, president of Dolce & Gabbana USA. “It’s interesting to see the different ages here today. Really, Gisele epitomizes what the Dolce woman is all about: sexy but playful.”
So who was the other models who made the Forbes list? Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima, and Alessandra Ambrosio rounded off the top five, with Australia’s Gemma Ward the youngest model at 19 coming in at number 10.
