Gisele Bündchen wants the world to know that in her post-Tom Brady marriage life, she is still modeling on the highest levels. Bündchen is the star of a new Louis Vuitton x Yayoi Kusama art and fashion collaboration signaling her return to high fashion modeling.

In a video using the appropriate music bed of The Rolling Stones’ song “She’s Like a Rainbow,” Bündchen delivered in the topless ad celebrating the polka-dotted art of the Japanese artist adorning the French luxury bags. Bündchen joins models like Karlie Kloss, Christy Turlington, and Bella Hadid for the second collaboration between Louis Vuitton and the 93-year-old Kusama.

“Blending the creativity of Yayoi Kusama and the savoir-faire of Louis Vuitton, the new collection reinterprets the Maison’s iconic pieces, infused with the artist’s signature motifs,” Louis Vuitton’s website states. “Celebrating art, audacity, and craftsmanship, Kusama’s Painted Dots, Metal Dots, Infinity Dots, and Psychedelic Flower enliven the universe of Louis Vuitton.”

Polka Dot Pivot

The colorful ad’s significance reflects Bündchen’s post-divorce state of mind. Over the weekend, the Brazilian posted a tranquil image of herself in a meditative pose in what looks like the rainforest.

“‘The quieter you become, the more you can hear.’ Rumi,” she wrote the caption in English and Portuguese. “Wishing you all a joyful and blessed 2023.”

Bündchen was in Brazil during the holidays with her children, Vivian, 10, and Ben, 13, from her marriage with Brady. She also worked in São Paulo during her time back home, making an appearance for jewelry brand Vivara’s 60th-anniversary dinner. It is a turnaround from the slate of negative news surrounding her and Brady before entering the new year.

Both Brady and Bündchen lost big in the failed FTX cryptocurrency investment collapse. Bloomberg reported that Brady owns over 1.1 million common shares of the collapsed cryptocurrency exchange, while his ex-wife has more than 680,000 shares. The two were considered boosters for FTX and even filmed a commercial advocating the company. Since its demise, FTX founder and CEO Sam Bankman-Fried has been arrested and charged in an eight-count indictment for allegedly perpetrating a multiyear scheme that defrauded customers and lenders in violation of finance laws.

Resumption Of Life

Brady’s decision to return to football is one of the main reasons his marriage to Bündchen deteriorated. The Buccaneers quarterback, believed by many to be the greatest QB based on his seven Super Bowl wins, retired on Feb. 1, 2022, only to unretire 40 days later. The two eventually divorced after leading the news cycle with tales of their discontent after 13 years of marriage.

The two were the social media fodder for former NFL wide receiver and Brady teammate Antonio Brown last year. “Boomin'” created campaigns using images of himself and Gisele during celebratory football moments and cartoon renderings depicting him as the replacement for Brady in the love life. Neither Brady nor Gisele addressed it during the time, and Brown utilized controversies to propel his burgeoning rap career in 2022.

There is life after being a football wife for Gisele Bündchen: being a supermodel, mom, and unbothered celebrity with a resumption to her pre-Tom Brady lease on life.
