Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen is in her home country and taking time to appreciate the little things in life—while also looking absolutely fabulous on the beach. The former Victoria’s Secret Angel, who is a total legend at the lingerie brand and in the modeling industry overall, galavanted across the sand in an itty-bitty animal print bikini featuring a risqué triangle top and tie-side bottoms.
The 43-year-old showed off her ultra-toned figure and super sculpted abs as she leapt with her legs and arms extended and was captured mid-air—shoutout to her photographer for that marvelous capture. There were a few sparse footprints along the shore, miles of water, gorgeous lush green mountains and gray-blue skies behind her.
“Special little moments❤️,” she captioned the carousel in both English and Portuguese and shared the summery photo dump with her 22.2 million Instagram followers.
Several fans chimed in to the comments to note that she posed on Brava Beach in the beautiful town of Santa Catarina in Southern Brazil.
“Our country is beautiful,” Márcia Goldschmidt commented.
“❤️😍🙏 fellow supermodel,” Karlie Kloss chimed
“Welcome to the neighborhood,” Eduardo Borges added.
“Beauty 😻✨,” The A-List Beauty wrote.
“This place is heaven,” one fan added.
“Good times and good memories ❤️,” another stated.
The mom of two included a sweet photo of her between her parents, Vania and Valdir, in the second-to-last slide.
Bündchen was featured on the cover of Vogue Brasil’s August issue, and she opened up to the magazine about what she attributes her decades of success to.
“I believe it has a lot to do with my personality and the choices I made along the way. I was faithful to my values and my essence, I always gave my best, I took the profession seriously and I was always very professional,” she shared. “I am naturally more reserved and ended up choosing works that I thought were more relevant to expose myself. Perhaps this contributed to his longevity in a career that is normally so fleeting.”
