Gisele Bundchen’s Vogue US April 2010

  • Pin it

Curious about what Anna comes up with for Vogue’s next cover, I discovered, much to my surprise, that it was a model! And that’s a noble, yet rare thing to do, Anna!

However, there’s still to debate whether Gisele falls into the models category or is she just being transplanted to the “starland”! Why? All you have to do is read fragments of the web article to see the dream life she’s leading with a perfectly fit athlete and her perfectly harmonious spirit. Gisele Bundchen covers (and so much more) Vogue US April 2010! (the story continues right after the jump with more images! Click here for the gallery!)

I know you heard this before, and you’ve even heard it from me, still, I feel compelled to repeat myself: Gisele has that mummy look she never had before. Yep, mothers do have something special in their look. Especially in their early mothers life! That brings something new to old Gisele, too bad it’s not Anna’s contribution. What irks me about this Gisele’s Earth Mother story is the sanctification of Gisele’s persona. Suddenly she’s more than a model. She’s a Na’vi! How uninspired and entertainment-submerged must be the person who wrote the article as to talk about a real life person in computer-sci-fi generated terms?

From all the world’s vocabulary, it had to be Na’vi? (for those of you who are not yet familiarized with the concept and the visuals, Na’vi is the computer generated population from the planet Pandora, also fruit of Avatar’s scenarists imagination!) I admire Gisele and feel the righteousness of her covering Vogue’s Shape issue. Then again, if we’re to relate to shape issues, why bring on a goddess to make us all feel puny and irrelevant? Especially all those young mothers who look nothing near Gisele only four months after giving birth?

To draw an early conclusion before feeling the tension mount: this is yet another perfect example of how Anna likes to hide fashion underneath thick layers of entertainment and Good Ol’ American dream stories. And then we all wake up to this cloudy reality far from the Na’vi ideals and wonder if those who depressed from not being able to touch the Pandora reality were that off the common sense line! (you can read the amazed, fairy tale-ish story here and draw your own conclusion, please share if you feel like it! Photos via)

Again it is nice to see a model on the cover of Vogue, any Vogue for that matter, but Gisele has never interested nor inspired me, and sorry Kpriss just because she has given birth it does not make her special. Children are the special ones not really motherhood for they can be a wonderful gift and joy to all, whether they are parents or not.

#2 Diane on 03.17.10 at 1:13 pm

She looks awful,i never liked her,she doesn’t express anything,but an extra tanned girl.

#3 Ellington on 03.17.10 at 1:19 pm

Why Diane… are you jealous? Are you suffering because she is a star and you are not? ;)

#4 Rob Schneider rules on 03.17.10 at 5:26 pm

Dude – you expressed a negative opinion about Gisele and nobody accused you of being jealous – perhaps they should have? ;)

Gisele is as beautiful as most models are – the cover looks pretty 80s though – “Lookin’ good/feeling’ great/Swim! Jog! Rollerskate!”

#5 Rob Schneider rules on 03.17.10 at 6:14 pm

I read the other comment – I see what you were doing. I thought it was a pretty daft thing to say so I jumped on it. My bad

#6 anom on 03.17.10 at 7:41 pm

It is always a relief to see a model, any model on the cover of a fashion magazine & Giselle knows how to look great – that is for sure! I hope it continues I would love to see Daria on the cover next month.

#7 kpriss on 03.18.10 at 7:38 am

Ellington, I wasn’t quite transparent in what I said about young mothers, true, so I’m coming back with few things I’ll hope will clear things up. There’s a legendary glow to pregnant women. I always thought it to be a myth. Until I saw it. (visibly) pregnant women begin to look like mommies. I can’t seem to find the right words to explain this right, except the “glow”. So it happens to the young mothers also: whenever you see a young mother (with a child under the age of 6 months, usually breastfed), she has that “glow”, that something making her look special…

Now getting back to Gisele: I’m not too fond of her either. She has a stunning, most perfect body, however, her face ruined it all for me. So it’s pretty strange that now I come to find Gisele looking pretty.. Because of her glow ;)

yeah, right, jealousy, that’s it! lol

#8 Adriana on 03.18.10 at 9:46 am

I think Gisele is pretty but not really nice to look at. I can’t explain it. And when I’m “jealous” at perfect models I just comfort myself that it’s photoshop and in Gisele’s case also nip/tucks! :D

I agree about that mommy glow Kpriss. I like that look in Gisele’s eyes this time which I’ve never seen before and I’ve seen it in real life of course! :)

#9 Adriana on 03.18.10 at 10:13 am

Forgot something. This Vogue is an interesting issue. It contains Kim Noorda’s weight struggle diary. “Beating It – A Model Fights Her Eating Issues”. I’ve read a piece off it and that was a heartbreaking read. Hopefully this is a groundbreaking way to another view in fashion on the body image that Anna wants to achieve with Kim’s diary in the issue! And with that curvy, looking Gisele on the cover? Please let it be so…..

#10 Ellington on 03.18.10 at 12:17 pm

I say that the “glow” is not always there and I don’t think it special or makes someone special. I have several friends who are pregnant, have been, my best friend just gave birth. I would not say that she has or had a glow though. I just find it to be this a cliche revelation. Some women suit being pregnant and carry wonderfully well and some women do not, it does not mean that the ones who suit it are or will be better parents. And what of the women who do not breastfeed Kpriss are they sans glow?
I honestly think that the glow you are seeing is an aura of love. I have seen this in aunts, uncles, grandparents, and people who love the child. This aura of love can happen with adopted children too.
Thanks for sharing your insight on this though.

#11 Adriana on 03.18.10 at 1:25 pm

Ellington, hmm……I’ve not to think long about it to say: “that is so very true!!!” The aura of love (that sounds really wonderful btw!) shows in all sorts of love.
But in Gisele’s case I still see it. She has a different “glow” than before. She’s happy, she’s loves and is beloved and that shows. :)

#12 Mark on 03.20.10 at 10:00 pm

Adriana, this “glow” is called photoshop.

#13 Diane on 03.21.10 at 7:07 am

No Ellington,i do not suffer ! The point is, that there are real beautiful women out there,and i don’t think Gisele is one of them !

#14 Diane on 03.21.10 at 7:10 am

And by the way… i have always thought, that she looks like a man…don’t know why…

#15 Adriana on 03.21.10 at 9:04 am

Mark, you don’t understand what some of us feel this “glow” is. Everything is photoshopped. What’s new? But not the look in her eyes neither her smile!

#16 Ellington on 03.21.10 at 9:45 am

Diane, you can say what you feel about Gisele for good or ill.
I was just remarking on how weak your comment was in regards that you accused everyone else of being jealous and suffering for not “adoring” Megan Fox as you seem to do.
No I do not think that you are suffering or jealous of Gisele, at least I hope not, but I do hope that you see just how jank it is to accuse someone of being jealous just because they do not care for someone or something that you like.

#17 Diane on 03.22.10 at 2:07 am

Ellington you’re a man,right? I truly believe that you can make a difference betwen two women,and you have to admit that judging by their features,Megan is more feminine and appealing.My comments are strictly based on what universal beauty standards are.I do not adore Megan,nor any other woman,since i checked last time,i adore men,but that doesn’t stops me from apreciating REAL beauty,when i see it.Xoxo

#18 Adrian on 03.22.10 at 7:52 am

LOL! Ellington is all woman! :D
I also find Gisele more attractive that Megan Fox. More LOLs: I think it’s so manly to like Megan not Gisele. No correction: Megan is probably very attractive for boys in their puberty!

(Sorry, Ellington and others….can’t help myself!
There women I adore. Like Patti Smith my she-hero as an example.)

#19 Adriana on 03.22.10 at 8:13 am

LOL! I’m not a man either. It’s Adriana.
(Every time I log off I’m log out of my accounts.)

#20 kpriss on 03.22.10 at 8:48 am

Ellington, you’re right, I was biased by my own beliefs and I went on regardless of other situations… Thanks for straightening me up! I deserved it! Yes, you’ve said it, it’s love! Love gives that special aura, that amazing glow, those special eyes, that wonderful look, that unearthly smile! Love. So simple to explain! And so little do we get to see real love around us…

Thanks again, Ellington!

Diane – I have to agree with Adriana on this one: lol! (however, I too believe that Gisele looks mannish :D)

#21 Ellington on 03.22.10 at 11:26 am

Sorry to disappoint your non sequitur reasoning Diane (really what does my gender have to do with what I said to you and your suggesting that everyone who does not care for Megan Fox is jealous?).
I am as Adriana said all woman and very straight for the record.
: )

Today’s question:

Can anyone tell me how the current black leather/pleather jacket look came about? They’re in stores across Australasia right now along with the still-popular grunge/tartan shirts. Did one of the designers do a biker line or something?

#23 Adriana on 03.23.10 at 7:04 am

Has that look ever been out then? I always wear on and off black leather and/or (grunge) tartan shirts? Tartan shirts have always been around. They call them grunge since the 90’s due to the grunge scene.
I can’t remember a collection with a biker line.

#24 kpriss on 03.23.10 at 8:41 am

I wonder if Terry Richardson is to blame! doesn’t he make you wonder if he ever changed his wardrobe from the 90s? when those tartan shirts were big hits? (not to bring the subject around Terry and his sleazy ways, it just crossed my mind and I thought it was funny).

To my knowledge (modest, I admit), there’s a big army thing in the air right now. I’m not convinced punk/rock is totally off so it makes sense seeing leather jackets and tartan shirts around… Me I only have eyes for flowers and dresses since it’s summer just around the corner (oh, and some wedge sandals? I so dream about a pair!)

#25 Adriana on 03.23.10 at 11:15 am

Kpriss, rock and punk is still very much alive. This music has found a new very young audience who really despise the charts today and are “jealous” at everyone who lived the rock days. So they love the look too for that reason I guess? And rock music and the current economic situation are a good team! Ja, ja……
Yes, it’s Spring and I wore a leather cap etc. and that was too hot. LOL! No, not because of that sleazy Terry Richardson who causes quite some noise of late. Is he a fashion photographer or isn’t he? To me he’s a soft-p*rn photographer. I hate his photos. I’m open minded towards p*rn: each to their own. But to (ab)use it as arty-fartsy fashion photography with very young models? Ugh!!
When Daul Kim died her photo with his a hand in her crotch appeared on my retina and made me wonder……

To end a bit happy and sunny: I’m gonna look to tomorrow in town for some summery clothing and new summer shoes. Definitely not clogs, no way!

#26 Ellington on 03.23.10 at 11:31 am

I remember Marc Jacobs doing a biker/grunge line a while ago.
I find also Adriana that some young people per se are really going for 80’s music and new wave tunes and house, not just rock and punk. There is a big need and resurgence to have music that one can to dance to. :)

#27 Adriana on 03.24.10 at 3:35 am

Ellington, I feel “so hot” since I’ve learnt that vinyl is THE thing again. I’ve so many LP’s in boxes. LOL! But to be honest: I’ve always missed the beautiful covers. I’ve some framed on wall.
They were cool because they were so great to read the lyrics along and some were almost art.

#28 Ellington on 03.24.10 at 7:47 am

Yes album art is missed and you cannot get the same feeling from a cd jewel case and certainly not from a download. Framing some of the covers is a nice touch.
If you still have a turntable you should mos def use it! Sometimes it is nice to hear a lp spinning! : )

#29 Diyana on 12.07.12 at 4:52 am

When I saw “Diane”, I was like “did I write that?” How mean are those words? I suppose I don’t have exclusivity of using that name on stylefrizz ;-)

#30 kpriss on 12.07.12 at 6:41 am

:) :* I understand how you feel. But Diyana is a pretty unique name / surname, so that grants you exclusivity right from the start :)
