According to a brand expert, Gisele Bündchen is more focused on herself than ever before as she returns to modeling following her divorce from Tom Brady.
Brady announced his retirement from the NFL in October 2022, months after the couple announced their divorce. Bündchen, who was once the world’s highest-paid supermodel, participated in a new Louis Vuitton campaign and was spotted posing on the beach for what appeared to be a magazine photoshoot, as per IB Times reported.
“The probability of Tom Brady’s retirement this season is something Gisele highly considered,” brand expert Eric Schiffer told Fox News Digital. “It happened because she feels renewed and empowered to focus more on herself and what makes her happy.”
He added, “Having a comeback career post-divorce is something anyone who has gone through an excruciating soul-crushing split relates.”
According to the expert, the Brazilian supermodel put her career on pause to focus on her family and played more of a supporting role in Brady’s career in recent years, so her desire to go back in front of the camera post-divorce was not surprising.
“This seismic shift is in her best interest if it makes her happy, feel powerful, and aligns with her vision of herself at this stage of Gisele’s life,” Schiffer explained. “Gisele’s potential to return to stardom never got destroyed, and so many are pulling for her.”
Tiffany Demers, inventor of the Upkeep app and a beauty expert, told Fox News Digital that Bündchen is a “great example” of how breakups should not prevent people from living their lives to the fullest and expressing their personal style.
“Post-breakup glow-ups used to include a new hair color and cut, but as Gisele is proving, glow-ups have a whole new meaning,” Demers said.
Last month, Bündchen was seen braless while posing in a see-through black midi dress with a wide buckled belt and cheeky thong on a busy Miami beach.
Page Six also got images of Brady’s ex wearing a plunging purple Versace swimsuit with long sleeves and a dramatic cowl hood at a photo session earlier that week.
In one photo, she can be seen seductively staring up at the sun, while another shows her kneeling on her knees with a fierce expression on her face.
For months, reports persisted that Bundchen was upset when Brady reversed his retirement plan and returned to the NFL for his 23rd season last year.
The couple never addressed the reports of marital difficulties before announcing their divorce on Oct. 28, 2022, after 13 years of marriage.
Vivian Lake, 10, and Benjamin Rein, 13, are their children. Brady and their ex-wife Bridget Moynahan have a 15-year-old son named John “Jack” Edward.
On Feb. 1, exactly a year after his first retirement announcement, Brady announced his final retirement from the NFL through video on social media.
Bundchen sent a supportive note in the comments area of her ex-husband’s video. “Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life,” the model wrote alongside a prayer emoji.
