Gisele Bündchen Plays the Guitar and Waxes Poetic on Nature in Chanel's New Videos
Gisele Bündchen hasn't let her supermodel status and her high-profile marriage to NFL quarterback Tom Brady keep her from enjoying the simple things. The 35-year-old former Victoria's Secret model bared it all (in an emotional sense) for two new videos for Chanel fragrances—musing on the importance of nature and fragrance, and giving us a decidedly intimate look at her life.
Both videos begin with Bündchen playing the guitar and humming a sweet tune, and later traipsing barefoot through the leaves wrapped in nothing but a cream towel.
The mother of two credits her connection with nature to her childhood in South Brazil, where she was raised in a small village and often ran around barefoot. "As long as I'm in nature, I feel like I'm in my element," she says. "I love the smell of nature. After it rains, the smell of the earth is my favorite smell."
"I remember my mom's perfume—I remember her scent, so I hope my kids remember my perfume," she laughs. "Maybe a mom's scent is not something you can forget, right?"
