The 36-year-old Brazilian model was featured as “The Girl from Ipanema” during the Bossa segment of the ceremony on Friday night (August 5) at Maracana Stadium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“It was very exciting to be part of this special moment. Everyone involved worked with dedication and passion to create a show that gave the world a glimpse of our history and Brazil’s essence. It was beautifully presented. Our Brazilian community is hard working, cheerful, and welcoming. I believe that we showed the world the beauty of our diversity. #gratitude,” Gisele wrote on Instagram the next day.
