Gisele Bundchen made a showstopping appearance during the opening ceremony of the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Business Insider: “Gisele Bündchen’s stunning appearance at the 2016 Summer Olympics opening ceremony Friday night brought down the curtain on a career as one of the world’s most successful supermodels.

Bündchen walked across what could be her longest runway at the Maracanã Stadium, accompanied by a piano playing the iconic tune “The Girl from Ipanema.””

USA Today: “Her sashaying performance attracted worldwide attention, with much of the focus being on the shimmering gold sequined column gown constructed by Alexandre Herchcovitch.

“I didn’t want a conventional gold, but a color that was very similar to her hair tone and skin,” Herchcovitch told Vogue recently.

Herchcovitch was hand-picked for the task by Gisele, and has created clothes for countless Brazilian and international celebrities.”

NY Times: “With her mile-long legs exposed in a sequined gold dress designed by her countryman Alexandre Herchcovitch and slit thigh high, the Victoria’s Secret beauty Bündchen was not operating at a particularly high degree of difficulty — particularly given that her runway strut has seldom been surpassed.

To the strains of “The Girl From Ipanema,” Bündchen walked across a stage in front of nearly 80,000 on-site spectators and millions of viewers around the planet. That was it. This viewer gave her a 10.”
