The Gisele Bündchen for Vogue Brazil photoshoot lensed by Mario Testino might seem like the typical model photoshoot if it weren't for the fact that it was taken just two months after the supermodel gave birth to her daughter Vivian. The Brazilian beauty is the world's highest paid supermodel, so the pressure to regain her shape was definitely sensed and she seems to have aced the tough challenge.
Gisele Bündchen's post baby body looks amazingly toned after just two months, a thing that never fails to amaze despite the fact we are used to seeing celebs regain back their figure all the time surprisingly fast, it seems that models set new records every single time.
The supermodel's attitude towards working out even while pregnant was probably the secret behind her toned figure. Back when she was pregnant with her son, she told Vogue that worked out at least three days a week for the duration of her pregnancy, with the exception of the last two weeks before birth.
She clearly stressed her beliefs about staying fit while pregnant as well: "I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals" she said back then. Well, it seems that nothing changed the second time around. This impressive achievement turned what was supposed to be a fashion editorial into a whole Body special issue. The idea belong to the photographer “Mario got so excited with Gisele’s shape, and how she looked amazing two months after giving birth, that he proposed to do eight more editorials on the theme, each very different from the other, discussing subjects from gender identity to the right to use your body as you wish,” Vogue Brazil's editor Daniela Falcão stated.
The Gisele Bündchen's post baby body photoshoot for Vogue Brazil is relevant due not only due to the star's nationality but also due to the way body image is perceived there and once again, Mario Testino explained the issue for WWD: “In Brazil, body image is very relevant since people have a big concern with the shape, whether being dressed or naked. It’s such a part of the culture — like in Rio, where the beach meets the city and people go to the beach after work and on weekends.”
