The Olympic Games opening ceremony is always a spectacle to behold. A lot of work goes into preparation and choreography of all those involved, from dancers, musicians to teams representing each country. The Rio Olympics opening ceremony featured Supermodel Gisele Bundchen who elicited admiration from across the globe.

In a darkened stadium, Gisele walked across the stadium in a stunning thigh-split metallic silver gown by Alexandre Herchovitch. In the near magical moment, camera phone flashes lit the terraces, and light beams lit up behind her to commemorate the work of the legendary Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer. Before the opening ceremony, the supermodel posted a message to all the spectators and participants of the games to uphold love and positivity.

The 5’ 11” supermodel was the star of the moment as the infamous bossa nova song “Girl from Ipanema” played on the piano. A tall, tanned girl who got catcalls as she walked by pubs and bars inspired the song, which was released in 1964. It was a perfect choice for the now legendary catwalk.

Searches involving supermodels skyrocketed by over 1850% on Google after Gisele reached the end of the runway. Social media was ablaze trying to come to terms with how she managed to walk across the floor of the Maracaná stadium in 5” heels.

News making rounds on social media and blogs suggest that it was her last catwalk. The grace with which she walked made the catwalk seem like an Olympic event. Gisele Bundchen was born in rural Brazil. She started her modeling career in Sao Paolo and later moved to New York where she rose to be one of the highest paid supermodels in the world. The supermodel is married to American Football quarterback, Tom Brady. Gisele Bundchen’s name will forever be in the annals of Olympic history.
