June 14, 2010 – Gisele Bundchen, the world’s highest-paid supermodel, marked her return to the catwalk Sunday after giving birth to her first baby six months ago.
Bundchen, 29, paraded in her native Brazil in the Sao Paulo Fashion Week, Latin America’s biggest fashion event, for the clothing label Colcci.
The leggy model is a regular at the Sao Paulo show but gave it a miss in January because she gave birth to her baby boy Benjamin on December 8 last year.
Bundchen is married to a US football player, Tom Brady, and spends most of her time in the United States.
She sauntered out Sunday in three outfits, two of them translucent enough to see she had regained her slim figure.
“I was very nervous,” Bundchen said, according to the website of the Brazilian newspaper Estado de Sao Paulo. “But I am very happy, everything went right.”
Asked about her son, Bundchen said: “He’s at home. Mom’s here working, it’s not right to bring him.”
