Gisele Bundchen - "V Magazine" Fall 2008
In her interview, Gisele, who turns 28 on Sunday, speaks frankly about her decade-long modeling career, as well as her outlook on fashion, the paparazzi and the environment. Check it out:
On her skin-baring images: “Only Mario [Testino] could make me take these pictures…. People are going to say my butt is showing too much in these but this is V Magazine! If you’re going to do something like that, you do it for V.”
On 15-year-old Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair wearing just a sheet and being on every news show: Can you believe this is news? It’s ridiculous. And the politicians aren’t going to create any laws about this [kind of media saturation]. They’re very happy with it. They can go around doing what they want and no one cares because we’re more concerned about some 15-year-old girl holding a sheet in a picture. No one cares about what [the politicians are] screwing up, or how much money is being lost.
On what she’s more compassionate about: “The destruction of our planet.”
On her role in the fashion world: “I work in fashion but I’m not really a fashion person. I don’t follow trends. I couldn’t tell you which designer made that shoe or that bag. I like jeans.”
