Gisele Bündchen will be 'even more successful' after Tom Brady split – she's proof older women are 'sexy', expert says | The Sun
GISELE Bündchen looks set to make millions as she mounts a full modeling comeback in the wake of her divorce, a fashion photographer has said.
And just as her ex, former footballer Tom Brady posted athirst trap online while sitting on his bed, he predicts Gisele will come out on top.
In an exclusive interview top fashion photographer Glauber Bassi told The U.S. Sun: “Gisele will be much more successful and luckily for her, the fashion modeling market has no retirement age and is open to her.
“Gisele’s ready to work properly again and to invest in her later career.
“It’s difficult to say how much money she'll earn but it’ll be a lot more than what she earned before.
“Older models in their 40s and 50s are beautiful and sexy, so this is great for Gisele.

“She looked incredible during her Miami beach photoshoots and everyone in the industry is excited to see Gisele shine again.
“Then regarding Tom's photo alone sitting on his bed in his underwear, well he looks like a newly single man on vacation and on his own sensual modeling shoot.”
Gisele looks to have kick-started 2023 with a series of grueling back-to-back modeling shoots on location in Miami Beach.
It was here that she appeared in January, just three months after her divorce.

At the time she looked to be wearing a series of expensive bathing suits and dresses which she modeled barefoot and with finesse in the hot sun.
That month, the stunning Brazilian-born model also appeared in a Louis Vuitton ad campaign.
Through the last decade, as the devoted wife of footballer Tom Brady, the legendary 5ft 10 model had put her modeling career on the back burner.
The dedicated wife and mom had raised their three kids while maintaining the home, at times relocating the family to support Tom's intense career as needed.
During their marriage, it was Tom who went on to reap the rewards professionally.
He became one of the most decorated football players of all time and one the best quarterbacks to ever play.
But as he made a U-turn on his retirement plans in February 2021, the shock decision reportedly cost Tom his marriage.
Gisele had reportedly hoped he’d quit the game for good, and the pair divorced last October.
At the time, her post-divorce statement read: “My priority has always been and will continue to be our children whom I love with all my heart."
She added: “The decision to end a marriage is never easy but we have grown apart."
“Gisele’s starting a new stage in her life and while her divorce must have been challenging, she’ll be putting her all into her career, “adds Glauber who has shot for high-end publications like Vogue.
“This is something that’s going to be so good for her.
“When she had a break for the family and then came back to work, the divorce may have pushed her to do this now.
“The fact that she has had a break won’t be challenging for Gisele at all because she had so much experience before and knows exactly what she’s doing.
“Gisele isn’t starting anything new or looking to change anything – she’s already an amazing model.
“There won’t be any shame factor either because she’s older now.
“It’ll be the opposite because of the way the industry has changed.
“I don’t know how much she'll charge but it’s a great business and the industry has changed so older models are working again now and can earn more.”
As one of the world’s highest-paid and most recognizable models, Gisele first took the world by storm in 1997.
She started out gracing the catwalk for Alexander McQueen before appearing on a multitude of Vogue covers alongside the likes of Naomi Campbell, Kate Moss, and Claudia Schiffer.
While becoming a coveted Victoria's Secret Angel, Gisele appeared on over a thousand magazine covers.
She also shot plenty of lucrative campaigns for the likes of Chanel, Versace, and Givenchy.
After marrying Tom in 2009, Gisele noticeably cut back her work and modeling schedule.
This culminated in her focusing on supporting Tom's career and her family life while she finally left her agency, IMG models in 2021.
“Gisele has always had such a big name in the fashion industry,” adds Gerber.
“She's in her forties now and still incredibly beautiful so the latest work she has been doing on the beach in Miami will give her even more credibility.
“For the brands that she ends up working with from now on in, they will really benefit from her huge profile and beauty and will gain even more credibility now as well.
“She'll get a lot of work.
“When these supermodels go back to work after having breaks for kids or family or anything else, then they take on more advertising jobs.
"They do big photographic campaigns so they wouldn’t work on fashion shows that much or do the catwalk.
“Gisele is thin, but is still fit and because we're trying to become more diverse in the industry she can return.
"She'll encourage others of her age to do so and be a role model.
“I don’t think Gisele wasted any years when she was married because she invested so much in her personal life and her kids and in staying healthy.
She’s also got all the right contacts.
“Mature models are more experienced and easier to work with and know how to handle the cameras and different environments
“They are much more confident and exude self-love.”
Amazingly just after photos of Gisele’s stunning Miami Beach shoots hit the headlines, Tom retired and hung up his pads after 23 seasons in the NFL.
The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback then posted aselfie online in his underwear on Monday.
This came just four months after finalizing his divorce from Gisele.
“Did I do this right?” wrote Tom next to the social media upload which was taken from his bed.
Brady, 45, went on to explain that “a deal’s a deal,” since he reportedly promised to recreate photos of models posing in their underwear for his own brand if he garnered 40,000 likes on a tweet.
“Tom’s photo looks like he's on vacation and wants to show a little bit," says Glauber.
"I don't know what he's earning from his underwear brand but I think he's enjoying himself and looks like a newly single man here.
"He has stopped playing football and likely has more time so he probably doesn't have to work out so much as well.
