A Very Bündchen Spa Day

Gisele Bündchen in Vogue Italia June 2013

Leave it to Vogue Italia to present Gisele Bündchen as you’ve never seen her before. Almost every inch of the 5’ 11 supermodel has been publicly paraded—including this month’s Vogue Brasil, where her yes-I’m-that-Super post-baby body was said to have motivated Testino’s cover shoot—but Meisel’s voyeuristic spread in the Italian mag hitting newsstands today offers what we'll call unprecedented intimacy (yes, we've seen the Pirelli calendar, trust us on this). The Health and Beauty cover story shows Bündchen posing in various states of undress at a spa, while receiving treatments both ancient (her nearly-nude limbs strike a sphinx-like pose while she undergoes cupping therapy) and cutting-edge (the mother-of-two is practically shown inside out getting a blood facial). We love a bare-faced Gisele as much as Gisele, herself, enjoys being makeup-free, but Pat McGrath's imperceptible hand is enough to make a girl drop everything and book a facial. Though we're sure that we can credit 99% of Gisele's allure to genetics, it is somewhat relieving to think that perhaps, for the mere price of a home mortgage, it could be bought. Maybe vampire-inspired technology could make us grow a few inches, too? A girl can always dream.

    I too get facials wearing DI-A-MONDS.

    • Camellia

      Haha, that made me laugh out loud. Awesome.

  • Holly

    What the WHAT is a blood facial?!

    • Kattttt

      Is it her blood? Is it not her blood? Which is more disgusting?!

      • Addison Cain

        It's her blood! They get it taken out and re-injected into their face. Kim K did an instagram pic of herself getting one. I'll stick to clay masks, thank you.

    Very Irving Penn. Must have now!

  • Aubrey Green

    Her body is out of control.

  • Sarah Moran

    Is it just me or does she look like Barbra Streisand in a couple of those shots?

    • genie

      I agree with you, she does.

  • mermaidsdream

    Do you think this is what Big Sean means in "Clique" when he goes "I've been up straight for 9 days/I need a spa day"


  • Camellia

    Blood facials? The ugly side of beauty. Truly macabre. No offence to anyone, but that makes me think, what price beauty? Vanity gone mad?

  • ami

    On top of the extensive maintenance shown in this spread, no mere mortal could afford (time and/or financially), there have been nose jobs, boob-jobs etc etc. Not that I am hating on that: power to her. But when it comes to allowing women to compare themselves to impossible standards full disclosure is appropriate.

    99% genetics? Please. Looking like Giselle is work, even for Giselle.
