Gisele Bundchen kicked off her modeling career at the young age of only 14. She posted this Instagram post right before her final catwalk appearance.
The supermodel has made the exclusive Met Gala guest list since the '90s. Here, she's seen attending the event wearing a high ponytail and a metallic smoky eye.
Seemingly barefaced with just a little pink lip gloss, the world was introduced to Bündchen's voluminous beach waves.
For a fashion event in 2000, Bündchen went for a smooth blowout that drew attention to her very timely side bangs.
In 2004, Bündchen walked the Marc Jacobs runway with minimal makeup and her hair pulled back into a faux-bob hairstyle.
Gisele Bündchen walked the Victoria's Secret 10th Anniversary Fashion Show runway with a flippy blowout that defined her face-framing layers.
One of her most famous red carpet appearances (at the Oscars with Leonardo DiCaprio!), Bündchen styled her ultra-long hair in loose beach waves and went noticeably brighter in color.
At an eyewear launch in 2006, Bündchen showed up with her hair pulled back into a laid-back ponytail, finishing off her look with fluttery eyelashes and pink lip gloss.
Wearing a classic black cat-eye and perhaps her lightest hair color to date, the supermodel walked the runway at Brazil's Fashion Week.
A far departure from her usual makeup looks, Bündchen wore two-toned eyeliner for a runway show in Rio.
Bündchen rarely wears updos, but for the 2009 Met Gala, which she attended with her now-husband Tom Brady, the supermodel pulled her hair up into a classic chignon.
Proving a ponytail is appropriate for any occasion, the supermodel debuted this simplistic hairstyle at the 39th AFI Life Achievement Awards, along with long lashes, black eyeliner, and bronzed cheeks.
In 2013, the supermodel went a little darker with her hair color, trying out a chestnut brown shade with honey-colored highlights.
A shift in your part can transform your entire look. The proof is in this voluminous, wavy, full hairstyle the supermodel wore to the Met Gala in 2014.
For the 2017 Met Gala, Bündchen brought a little color to her makeup with pastel purple metallic eyeshadow.
Giving her beach waves a little twist, the supermodel wore them more uniformed and smooth with an Old Hollywood vibe for the 2018 Met Gala. She coordinated her golden eyeshadow with the color of her gown.
