Two days before her swan song issue of Vogue Brasil hits the newsstands, Gisele Bundchen has released a couple more stunning images via her Instagram account.
The 34-year-old supermodel announced her retirement from the catwalk less than two weeks ago but she’s clearly not going quietly.
In the photo above, the mother-of-two shows off her flexibility as well as her amazing curves as she kicks one leg high into the air. “When you can’t change the direction of the wind – adjust your sails,” she wrote as a caption.
In stark contrast, she also posted a nitty gritty black and white headshot (above).
Her hands and part of her face are covered in a powdery black substance, perhaps dirt, in the striking image captioned: “When we honor the earth, we honor ourselves.”

Her naked cover shot for the magazine celebrating her 20 years as a model shows the years have taken very little toll on her toned physique.
“My 20-year career celebration cover at @voguebrasil. Thanks to everyone who is part of this special edition,” Bundchen wrote alongside the photo.
Her latest shot shows Bundchen (fully clothed) on her way to the Vogue Brasil party thrown to celebrate her catwalk career.
The supermodel – who earned $47 million last year, according to Forbes – quit after insististing that her body was telling her that now was the time to quit
“I am grateful that at 14, I was given the opportunity to start this journey. Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business.
“Automatically my body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop,” she told Brazilian newspaper Folha de S. Paulo. “I respect my body. It’s a privilege to be able to stop.”
Judging by these photos, many may beg to disagree!
