With numerous high-profile appearances on the cover of famous magazines, fashion runways for notable designers, also in endorsements for exclusive brands, Gisele Bundchen certainly stands out to be one of the most substantial supermodels in the world. One of the six daughters of Valdir and Vania Bundchen who both are of German descent, the blue-eyed beauty was born Gisele Caroline Nonnenmacher Bundchen on July 20, 1980 in Tres de Maio, a town near Horizontina, Rio Grande de Sul, Brazil. Growing up as a skinny, tall girl, she was frequently taunted with the nickname Olivia Palito, the Portuguese version for Popeye's Olive Oyl, during her grade school years, making the girl's life a little bit uncomfortable for sure, but fortunately this all began to change by the time she turned to 14 years old. On a trip in Sao Paulo, the teen surprisingly was spotted by a representation of Elite Modeling Agency when visiting a local Mc Donald's store and upon noticing her potentiality, the agent quickly offered her to try for modeling which she later eagerly accepted.
