Gisele Bündchen, is back!  Following a year’s retirement from the runway, the Brazilian supermodel returned to the catwalk at Rio De Janeiro’s Maracanã Stadium on Friday, celebrating the Opening Ceremony of the XXXI Olympic Games.  The next day, not only did she speak with Today’s Natalie Morales, but she waved a gold ribbon during a Pantene event (left).

SECRETS FROM A SUPERMODEL’S KITCHEN!

Giselle     Even supermodels  have their “off days.”  We were thrilled to see one featured on Gisele Bündchen’s Instagram feed.  Captioning the photo (above), “I can’t resist” and tagging it #rawdesert (sic), the model/mother of two, 35, made herself appear far more human.In January, Allen Campbell, personal chef to Bündchen and her husband, Tom Brady, spoke to Boston.com, revealing that he never uses white sugar, white flour, or MSG in the preparation of the family’s food.  Other no-nos include “nightshades” such as tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, or eggplant (because they are not anti-inflammatory for Brady), as well as coffee, caffeine, fungus, and dairy.  “My philosophy is that a plant-based diet has the power to reverse and prevent disease,” Campbell shares.

So what do the Bündchen/Bradys eat?  “80 percent of what they eat is vegetables,” says Campbell, adding, “[I buy] the freshest vegetables. If it’s not organic, I don’t use it. And whole grains: brown rice, quinoa, millet, beans. The other 20 percent is lean meats: grass-fed organic steak, duck every now and then, and chicken. As for fish, I mostly cook wild salmon.”  Not your traditional American diet!

2016 is going to be a banner year for the Pirelli Calendar.  Rather than featuring nude or semi-nude pinups, the latest edition will feature women of substance who are, for the most part, fully-clothed.  Models will include some familiar faces — Yoko Ono, Patti Smith, Serena Williams, Fran Lebowitz, and Amy Schumer — as well as philanthropist, Agnes Gund, money manager, Mellody Hobson, filmmaker, Ava DuVernay, artist, Shirin Neshat, producer, Kathleen Kennedy, and actress, Tavi Gevinson.

According to Pirelli:  The Calendar: 50  Years and More, the notoriously exclusive work was first published in 1964.  Reserved for important clients and VIPs, it was originally designed as “an eye-popping advert for their high-quality products, a freebie that would be proudly displayed and obsessed over year-round by their target market.”  Famous faces who have graced its pages have included, Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Cindy Crawford, Penélope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, Heidi Klum, Sophia Loren, and Kate Moss.
