Gisele’s Freckles…


Are out in full force in the new David Yurman campaign ads and video. Tom Pecheux did seemingly very little (Idealist and Olio Lusso, perhaps?) to the Brazilian stunner's face...but of course it doesn't need much help to begin with.

    This woman is beyond gorgeous.. Doubt she needs anything besides rolling out of bed like this.

  • Pat

    LOVE IT (and only because I am Brazilian). for starters, it looks like it wasn't photoshoped at all!! we can see lines and freckles and everything else that make her so beautiful (and human -- altough, let's face it, very few humans look as good as she does)

    • Pat

      I meant "NOT ONLY", not only "ONLY"...hahaha oops

      • Sonia

        Totally agree with you. It's refreshing to see someone so natural (love the freckles and the expression lines) and beautiful.

        • Maiastras

          I immediately noticed what both of you mentioned. I was never a huge fan of Gisele but I absolutely love how this photograph captures her beauty.

    Oh, I have even more freckles than Gisele))
    she's gorgeous

  • Tory

    Good God. She's too beautiful. This needs to stop.

  • Alice

    Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!

    To be honest, I don't really see why people hate freckles.
    I honestly think they're super cute. In fact, I've always wanted freckles really badly. People think I'm crazy but seriously, freckles are so adorable!

    Take these photos for instance, Gisele is stunning!
    Well, I mean she's always stunning but when we can see her freckles, she's even more stunning (is that even possible?)!!
    I love that we can see everything on her face here: freckles, a few smile lines, etc.
    Seeing her looking so naturally amazing just makes me love her more!

    She looks so human! But in a more beautifully amazing wonderful way :)

    Love David AND Gisele.

  • Erika

    I love that you can see the texture of her skin! It actual skin--not airbrushed to high heaven. Bravo, d. yurman!

  • Fairytalesandcoffee

    I used to be obsessed with her feline-like face some years ago....its always interesting to see how people's face's change as they get older. She does look a bit different from her hey day. I think it's fascinating that people don't realize that one's face is constantly shifting and growing, and it is not about wrinkles, or anything like that.

    • Janine

      I think a lot of changes come from having children. I think women's faces become a bit more angular. Gisele's gorgeous. I just think she's grown up.

  • Aya

    I echo everyone's sentiment here: She's gorgeous and it's refreshing to see someone look human, rather than plaster.

  • Nomi

    I agree that she's beyond beautiful, and as a woman with freckles, and in my 30's, it's nice to see a lovely and gracious "natural" state in these photos. Though I don't believe that anything in advertising is coincidental or for humanistic reasons... it probably has as much to do with the fact that the women who buy these pricey baubles are in the more "mature" crowd that this ad is posturing to identify with.

  • Rachel Gilman

    Peter Lindbergh appreciates natural beauty so you will never see a ton of airbrushing. Thank goodness for that. I love freckles.

  • J_kazenwadel

    i tried idealist and it turned to sand on my face, weird!

  • ClosetCravings


  • Rebecca

    There is no doubt that she is beautiful and the pictures are beautiful but her skin just looks sun damaged...

    • reddysteadygo

      I agree! I go nuts for a freckly face but her skin looks dry and damaged in these closeups I think.

  • Vicki

    I love those rings in the first photo, she is gorgeous! Also, got my issue of Glamour last night and saw you had a whole feature in it Emily, it was a great article and you looked fantastic! :)

    • reddysteadygo

      Is that the September issue of Glamour or the big "Summer Fun" Guide?

  • Rolah M. Lønning Osman

    Wow, I love how you can see her wrinkles, totally beautiful, 100% natural. It makes me want to age gracefully! Something I think a lot of us has forgot about..

  • Mabelmatilda

    I have freckles too just like Gisele, I don't know if I like them or not, sometimes I feel like they make my face look 'dirty' sometimes I feel like it makes my face look unique, but hers are so cute not to mention she's gorgeous


Dearest ITG Reader,

We're working on something new called Glossier. It's launching soon(!) and we want you to be the first to know updates.

xo, Emily
