The Brazlian beauty’s latest campaign is with BLK DNM, and she has ensured that she looks as natural as physically possible. Working closely with the brand’s creative director, Johan Lindeberg, Gisele was persuaded to pose make-up and hair styling free for the snaps. Speaking about her fresh-faced shoot and working with Johan, she said:
‘I loved his approach because I feel like women should be really real and raw and it doesn’t really happen anymore.
‘I love that feeling of, you know, we are women – we are so different. Our imperfections are what makes us unique and beautiful.
‘He’s not trying to retouch you or put a pretty light on you. He’s not like, “You’ve got to look a certain way.” He’s like, “You are you.”‘

Kate Upton, who is famous for not having the typical skinny model figure, just got her first US Vogue cover together with a spread that shows off a slightly slimmer (photoshopped) Kate. From Vogue:
What makes the Kate Upton era so unlikely is that the things we love about her—those curves! that personality!—defy what the word model has come to mean, at least on the runway: a seemingly endless procession of lanky, expressionless wraiths. That is most certainly not Upton’s profile. (Descriptions of her figure tend to involve euphemisms for a single word: breasts.) And yet Upton’s body has sparked debate. This year’s Sports Illustrated cover—a shot of her in Antarctica, parka open to reveal a stunning breadth of cleavage—set off a fresh round of “Is she fat?” conversations across the Internet.
“It was hard at first,” she admits of hearing such rumblings. “You sit there and you’re like ‘Is something wrong with me?’ ” But she’s learned to ignore her critics—and come to regard her healthy body as a point of pride. “The things that they’re rejecting are things that I can’t change. I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.”
I don’t really have a plan. I’ve lived a very big life, and I don’t feel my age, and I feel like I was born to be a mother. Sometimes people speak about [having kids] like, “Your life ends—you’re never going to be able to do anything again!” And I’m like, “What are you talking about?” Motherhood is the most beautiful, exciting thing, and there’s nothing that I feel like I can’t accomplish while having children in my life. I would sacrifice having more years of being wherever I want whenever I want for years with my kids.

On another note, Hayden was definitely photoshopped in this shoot – compare the top picture with her actual figure on the beach last week:
