Gisele Bundchen, who is arguably the most coveted supermodel within the fashion world right now, has grabbed yet another magazine cover and editorial. The 28-year-old beauty icon adorns the pages of the June 2009 issue of Numero Tokyo.
On the “Brazilian Beauty Icon” editorial snaps, which were taken by taken by Nino Muñoz, Gisele is wearing a simple but edgy ensemble which includes tight black zippered jeans, a pair of austere-looking golden bras and a leather minidress. Her signature long mane is slicked back, giving the model an androgynous look that I find very refreshing—it signifies a departure from what we are used to seeing from the Brazilian uber model.
