Her husband Tom Brady, parents Vania and Valdir, and sister Gabriela, looked on proudly as Gisele strutted her stuff for Colcci.

Gisele started her 20-year modelling career at the tender age of 14 during the very same fashion week in Brazil, and has since amassed an eye-watering fortune of nearly $400 million (around £250m). Just last year, she reportedly earned £28 million.

So why has she decided to stop now? According to the Daily Telegraph, Gisele told Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, "Automatically, my body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop.

"I respect my body, it's a privilege to be able to stop."

Her sister and representative Patricia said in a statement that she will now "focus on special projects and also spending more time on her number one priority: her family."

Gisele has two children with, Benjamin and Vivian, with her American football player hubby Tom.

At the end of the show, a host of other models joined Gisele all wearing pictures of the iconic model.
