It wasn't just the sports fans who got excited about the 2016 Olympics Opening Ceremony, because stunners like Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen and the oil-slicked man from Tonga stole everyone's attention and made everything a hundred times better.
Gisele opened the show by strutting down the Maracana stadium "runway" to the tune of the bosanova classic The Girl from Ipanema. She wore a long, Alexandre Herchcovitch mesh dress with a long slit, train, and golden sequins, catching the light and shining brighter than the lit cauldron. It was the perfect eye-catching silhouette for the model's runway comeback.
The Brazilian designer was personally chosen by Gisele to work on the dress. They last worked together in the late 2000s, and in a recent interview with Vogue, he described the four months of working with the model as a special reunion and an unforgettable experience.
This experience was undeniably the same for sports and fashion lovers, too. The supermodel slayed it in the runway and made her country proud.
"As I walk down tonight on the longest runway I have ever been on I will be sending out all my love and positivity. I am humbled and honored to be part of this historic moment for my country." - Gisele BündchenADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
