Gisele Bündchen

Taschen Collector’s Edition

The large-scale Collector’s Edition book curated and art directed by Giovanni Bianco is a celebration of Gisele’s 20-year milestone in the industry. Gisele by Taschen is a unique artwork limited to a total of 1,000 numbered copies signed by Gisele Bündchen, who will donate all her proceeds from the book to charity. It presents more than 300 photographs from Gisele’s legendary nude portrait by Irving Penn, showed as the book’s cover, to iconic shots from masters of photography as Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Peter Lindbergh, David LaChapelle, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and Corinne Day. This book is a unique artistic presentation of the most famous and the highest-earning model in the world. She was just 18 when she made her debut in the S/S 1998 ready-to-wear “Rain” show of Alexander McQueen. Today she is celebrated by this mesmerizing image collection, which is accompanied by an introduction by Steven Meisel and tributes from Gisele’s closest friends, family, and fashion leaders, who tell how and why she has become the most in-demand cover girl of her generation.
