Gisele Bundchen to Release $700 Coffee-Table Book
She's the world's highest-paid supermodel, after all.
When you’re the world’s highest-paid supermodel, it stands to reason you can charge an arm and a leg for a book celebrating your illustrious — and undoubtedly gorgeous — 20-year career. In the case of Gisele Bundchen, the price of her forthcoming Taschen art book — being produced in a limited run of 1,000, all signed by her — is $700.
Tom Brady’s wife personally curated all 300-plus photographs in the tome — which sounds like a lot of work, when you consider that, at just 35 years old, she’s been on more than 1,000 magazine covers, walked more than 450 runways and posed for an incredible number of campaigns, from Chanel and Balenciaga to Stuart Weitzman and H&M.
The book also chronicles her rise from Brazilian country girl to world-famous model, and it includes tributes from her "closest" friends, family members and fashion leaders (we can only imagine who will be quoted). On the cover: the famous Irving Penn nude portrait shot in 1999. The takeaway: Brady is a lucky, lucky man.
