At high request, here is a Gisele Bundchen before after comparison – on the left, Gisele and her trademark thin and fit figure back in 2014 and on the right, a much curvier Gisele posing in an electric blue swimsuit with mega cleavage earlier this week.
Playing around between shots, the 36-year-old Brazilian model did a shoot with famous photographer Mario Testino in Rio this week, both in swimwear and bright outfits.

I just picture a vial of oil. I think of all the avenues people take to look younger, to look like they haven’t aged, not look their age, and to prevent fine lines and wrinkles and sagging skin. It seems like such an ugly thing and I don’t think it’s necessarily an ugly thing. Some of the most beautiful women have lines around their eyes.
There are extreme ways of anti-aging. Face-lifts and Botox are very different, one’s more extreme. I’m 30, going to be 31 in a couple of days, and I don’t want to knock that stuff — to each their own. But I also feel like there’s a look. When you start doing that, you start looking the same as everyone else. Because unfortunately, you’re conforming to something and your face doesn’t move. Everybody’s faces blending into each other and the more surgery you do, with the big lips, skinny nose and tight brow — why would you want to look like everybody else [in Hollywood]?
There are a lot of insecurities with anti-aging and a lot of stigmas. I’m terrified of feeling that. But, I think there’s enough products on the market to prevent that kind of stuff. There are behavioral things you can do, like not smoking or not drinking too much. I think it’s easier than people make it out to be. But also, that’s easy for me to say.
I feel like the phrase should be banned. Everyone is aging, by virtue of living another day. It’s impossible to prevent. We are all dying. We’re all marching towards death.
On the connection between wellness and beauty:
It’s absolutely connected. Being healthy is beautiful. Being healthy in the inside, it emits through. Your skin is your f-ing biggest organ. You can see happiness through someone’s skin. You can see someone who is taking care of themselves through their skin. You can see a glow that radiates from within. I always feel most beautiful when I’ve exercised, had a good meal, exfoliated, and washed my hair. I always feel most beautiful after I feel clean. I always feel beautiful after I’ve plucked my eyebrows.

Name: Betty Brosmer and later, Betty Weider
Also known as: ‘The girl with the impossible waist”
Height: 5’5” / 165 cm
Age today: 81
Occupation: pin-up model, author, trainer
Also known for:
being the co-founder of Shape Magazine
being the wife of famous bodybuilder Joe Weider
Before the age of photo editing, Betty stood out with her unique proportions depicting an hourglass shape with an impossible waist, measuring only 18 inches / 46 cm. But although Betty’s shape was admired by many and the beautiful blonde had a great career as a pin-up model (and later as a trainer and author), there was a lot of speculation at the time (1950s-1960s) regarding the methods Betty used in order to achieve her hourglass shape. While some say that corset training played a role in transforming her body, others say that the model opted for a waist reduction surgery, a procedure that alters the shape of the ribcage (and moves internal organs in the process).
What do you think of Betty’s body shape and how it compares to the current standards of beauty?

19 year-old Hailey Baldwin is upset these days because people seem to think she’s had plastic surgery and / or lip fillers done. The model set the record straight and stated:
Everybody thinks I’ve had plastic surgery. Do people want me to go to a doctor and have them examine my face so they can tell people I haven’t? My mum’s family call her and ask, ‘Did Hailey do her lips? Did she do her nose? Everybody grows up, your face changes and you mature and that’s what is happening to me. It makes me feel quite horrible to think that people think I look so unnatural. So for the last time, I have never touched my face surgically.
Kylie Jenner is one of those celebs who loves to talk about beauty-related topics, as well as answer her fans’ plastic surgeries questions and inquiries (although occasionally denying her own procedures at first). Recently, the reality star opened up about dealing with yet another rumor: that she got jaw and cheek surgery.
On whether she considers Kim the hottest sister:
I don’t try to compete with Kim to be the hottest sister. I mean I think all my sisters are hot, but Kim’s got the crown, Kim’s so cute and sexy. I never compete with my sisters.
On the rumors that she had jaw and cheek surgery:
No I didn’t [have cheek surgery]. People started saying that when I was 16. You really think Kris Jenner would let a 16 year old me have cheek and jaw reconstructive surgery? No!
On whether the haters got to her:
I always used to love my jaw. I was never self-conscious about my jaw, but before I got my lips done, my lips were very tiny and more like sunken into my chin. Someone made a meme of me on the internet of me that I was the Crimson Chin. And me and [my friend] Stas have been laughing about it for about six years. But now that I have big-ass lips, it looks normal.
