Gisele Bundchen: “Our imperfections are what makes us unique and beautiful”

168202971_10 - Gisele Bundchen: "Our imperfections are what makes us unique and beautiful"

From Daily Mail:

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.”‘

… says 32 year-old Gisele about her latest pro-natural campaign.

easy to say when you always look perfect 😉

she has a body perfect for modelling, but her face is too masculine

My thoughts exactly, Mary!
“For instance, my imperfection is that my body is flawless, I have a perfect modeling face, I live at the beach, and my husband is a wealthy athlete.”

Easy to say whe you are perfect.
She is and will remain the best body of the industry to me. She looks so German/Amazon woman to me. Fit, strong, sexy but also cute.

I don’t think she needs photoshop anyway so why using it with her. Sometimes I wonder why we photoshop some models: Adriana, Miranda, Doutzen … they don’t need it.

Her boyfriend doesn’t seem to be getting tired of her booty…lol
Did you guys notice how celebrities wear corsets more and more? Gisele doesn’t have such a defined waist but she looks like she does in the pics with the long black dress. Talk about embracing your flaws…

mary
Guest

she’s not wearing a corset…look at the side view, the dress is exposed all the way up and there is nothing but skin underneath…she is just contorting her body to look curvier

The long black Givenchy dress, not the short dress with the metal rings.

I would say it is true, I am most attracted to advertising that is not over photoshopped, real raw where you can see imperfections. I find the imperfections add interest, which makes me want to look at the pictures, photoshopped pictures are SOOO boring, they cant keep my attention.
Agreed though, it probably only works on supermodals whose imperfections are limited or where a unique nose is seen as an “imperfction. Take a normal person on the street with their pimples and cellulite and we probably wouldnt feel the same way lol

Nana

Flaws? Like a slightly raised nose and a long face when everything else about you is perfect. Some wouldn’t even say those are flaws.

But I like Gisele. She sounds a lot more intelligent than other models. There’s something so classic supermodel about her. I hope she stays around.

KayT

Correct me I I am wrong but didn’t she get a nose job? I always roll my eyes when I read the newest celebrity quote encouraging all women to “embrace their flaws” and “love who you are” when they know good and well that they’ve had work done. Hypocrites.

Whenever I read these comments the only thing I can imagine is that their are 20 something comments which every single model/actress/singer revises and says when they are asked body image related questions.
1) Embrace imperfections.
2) You cant please everyone
3 ) I was the awkward ugly girl.

Lol, not saying its the case. But thats often how it comes across isnt it.

In this case, the quote is quite generic.

Yes baby, ofcourse you love your imperfections since you get rid of them!
On the other hand, I think she has an incredible body. Not very pretty in the face area though. And she seems annoying, gives me the vibe of a girl who doesn’t have any girlfriends but only boys around her!

serena

Lol they all say the same thing, these overpaid models with their plastic surgery and millions from being born tall and beautiful. Well at least she has a smart point that photoshop is over the top. I’ve seen ads where the model or actress is so photoshopped that you can’t even recognize her!

Her and her husband look so alike-like brother and sister. Both tall, slim, sandy blondish hair and cleft chins.

That’s what I’ve always thought! I think that Gisele makes for a good model, but her facial features are rather manly… Otherwise, she seems to be pretty flawless… -_-

She is one of the very few people in Hollywood who I actually care what she says. She talks about how you have to put a lot of effort into your body, as in you have to exercise and eat right. She also gives out good beauty tips every once in a while. Her body looks so strong and lean, which is my ideal. I think she is skinnier than I would ever try to attain, but feminine yet super strong is what I’m going for and I think she’s the perfect example of that. I also like how she… Read more »

She got a b❆❆b job and a nose job J Casablancas from Elite called her on it years ago.
Looking at her 2000-2004 runway shots and they were as round as balloons

ludivine
Guest
ludivine

Exactly. her b❆❆b job is obvious, so she didn’t embrace her imperfections.

Raluca

The first pic made me think of a Dementor (from Harry Potter) 🙂

Mew

She’s one of those hypocrits I mentioned in Kelly Brook comments. This girl has got both nose job and fake b❆❆bs for a fact, who knows what else and she says “being yourself is the best”? Yeah, shut up Gisele and stop trying to be so high and mighty.

Candy M.

Its debatable whether she even has imperfections. That being said, most the time you still resemble yourself after photoshop, unless your britney spears. That plastic skin is hideous to me. Otherwise they photoshop the most random and insignificant things that nobody will ever notice. A lot of the time it seems they make the models look worse!

I sometimes disagree with the “easy for x to say” notion, since i do think we have the ability to learn to view ourselves in a more positive light, but in her case it does seem very accurate. Maybe it’s very subjective, but i do find her to be remarkably lacking in the flaw department. And she’s not even the most beautiful woman to me. It’s just, well she has the big mouth, the big nose, that are sometimes not viewed as the most desirable thing, but those are unique qualities in my eyes, the ones that do make someone… Read more »

Here is what confuses me: Gisele is listed at 5’11 and Tom at 6’4″. She’s wearing high heels, at least 3-4″ and he’s still got a couple inches on her…so either he’s a giant or she’s more like 5’9?

Winnie
Guest
Winnie

she might very well be. if you look at old VS photos where she is standing near Tyra and Adriana, Gisele is just slightly shorter than them. both Tyra and Adriana are listed at 5’10” so if that’s true there’s a high likelihood that Gisele is somewhere around 5’9″ or so

neutra

Couldn’t agree more with the headline – I find those perfectly pretty faces to be so insipid and unmemorable. I’ve said it before, butttt here I go again! It’s better to be found beautiful by some and unattractive by others than be found pretty by everyone.

anonymous, so cool of you to make assumptions about my preferences! And to use no username to boot so I can see who I’m responding to!!! Actually, I like women of all different shapes and sizes, and I really admire models, but my preference are models who have a less androgynous look to them than Gisele and Karolina. Some of my favorites of all time are Helena Christensen, Laeticia Casta, Kate Moss and Amber Valletta. Remember this is a site where we can express our opinions without being attacked for liking “real women”, as if liking “real women” is even… Read more »

5’10 135 lbs?what do you think her stats are?

That sounds about right to me, though I’m no expert 🙂 She is fit and toned but not too skinny.

The only time she’s been that heavy is during pregnancy, guaranteed. I think she’s just over 5ft10 and between 56 and 59kg. Probably 57/58, which = 125-128lbs. She’s have to be that weight to maintain her model stats.

She is not the most beautiful model imo but her face is perfect for high fashion and her body is just perfection.

Am I wrong in thinking she used to be slim but curvy? Now she just seems plain old skinny and like many others have noted, her face has a mannish quality.
I don’t see her and think words like “sensual”, “feminine”, “beautiful” anymore, even though I know I used to think that back in the early 2000’s.

Winnie

yes you are lol. she was never curvy. she’s always been quite ruler-shaped. she was softer before, in her VS days, but she’s never had a curvy body

I don’t believe she had anything done. Her nose is still the same. In those pictures I found on the internet it’s always the lighting or make-up changing her face, but in candids you can see it did not change at all. And regarding that b❆❆b job – she had a higher body fat percentage when she started out, so of course her b❆❆bs were bigger. As far as I know John Casablancas was pretty pissed when she left his model agency. And reading other “statements” he made… Well, google it and decide for yourselfs. I decided to trust my… Read more »

i don’t know about her b❆❆bs or the statements Casablancas made, but i can definitely see a difference in her nose and it looks infinitely better now than it did before. curiously, it also made her other features “sharper” and thus more masculine than they used to be, especially since she’s lost weight

ludivine

I don’t think she is very feminine. Her face and body is a bit masculin. But she is ultra perfect for fashion. What is it with celebrities sharing there ‘wisdoms’ with us. Especially on Facebook. I liked the pages of Adriana Lima, KK and Bar Refaeli. I was stupid to do it, bc they are so ‘wise’ they share there wisdom with you everyday. Adriana does is the most, and frequently she posts pictures of herself wearing fur (very wise that is), and then saying things like: make the most of who you are; don’t follow your dreams, chase them;… Read more »

She’s one of the best models in history. Stunning, unique, athletic and intelligent. Great personality and oes a lot for charity etc. Yeah she’s not perfect but who is exactly and why would anyone want to look like they were “perfect”?! Someone like Miranda Kerr just has a giant round ball for a head.. Her head is 75% cheeks and giant bulbous forehead.. yet no one really says anything negative about her. Gisele on the otherhand gets sooo many negative comments on here. The “masculine” comment I don’t get at all. She’s clearly a very attractive woman with lovely strong… Read more »

LOL! Miranda’s “giant round” head and “giant bulbous forehead” add to her feminine features while Gisele’s long angular face makes her look masculine and androgynous, which some people don’t find very attractive. so what? they’re different people with different strong points in the way they look and plenty of people here find Miranda unattractive as well, just for other reasons.

You always find beautiful women ” unattractive” I think you would prefer it if everyone looked like Lena Durham.

shut up “lol/s” and whatever other aliases you’ve used on here. what’s the matter, couldn’t find anything to nitpick in Erica’s comments so you’re on the hunt in mine and serena’s now? get a life.

serena
Guest
serena

Haha exactly, it’s the same user who goes by ‘lol’ or ‘s’ attacking curvy women and Erica obsessively, what a joke. And yes Gisele is androgynous, I don’t know how anyone can deny it. This makes her a remarkable supermodel and not just another pretty face – she is unique, strong, and beautiful – her masculine features work in her favor and add to her beauty. I think Miranda is cute but she doesn’t look powerful the way Gisele does, she is very baby-faced and adorable.

Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which
I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!
