Uber-sexy supermodel Gisele Bundchen covers Vogue Paris for Summer 2012 for the June/July 2012 body special, which hits the shelves May 24.
Shot by Vogue photographers Inez and Vindoodh, the Brazilian super shows why she is one of the industry’s best in a black bikini, showing off a toned and supple body. It’s a strong message, rooted in the Condé Nast International Health Initiative, a pact signed by the editors-in-chief of all 19 international editions of Vogue. “If fashion magazines exist to color women’s lives, they have a responsibility with regards to the images and messages they carry. Over the past few years, we’ve seen that the promotion of stereotyped body images, and very slim looks can have negative consequences the kind of which, sincerely, no title anticipated and would condone,” writes Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, in her editorial for the body issue, June/July 2012.
Inside, Gisele Bündchen, mother of a little boy and current face of Givenchy Spring/Summer 2012, lifts the lid on her health and beauty routine exclusively for Vogue Paris and shares the love for meditation, organic food and exercise which help her maintain a figure that made her one of the biggest models of the nineties, marking the fashion esthetic of the era.
