Gisele Bundchen is one of the most successful supermodels in the world and is known for her incredible beauty – and her long, gorgeous hair. Well, you can say goodbye to the latter – she’s shaved it off into a buzz cut for a new Balenciaga campaign. They must’ve been paying her a pretty penny for that shit!
I guess the one positive thing here is that she can just get up and go in the mornings, now. Considering she doesn’t even own a hairbrush, I’m sure she’s not that bothered about her new ‘do. After all, it’s just hair – it grows back.
What do you think? Does she pull it off?

Gisele Bundchen is widely known to be one of the most beautiful and physically flawless women in the world, right? I assume that’s why it’s major news that she’s come out and claimed that she doesn’t actually own a hairbrush – especially since she was recently named the new face of Pantene haircare products. Yikes!
From The AP (via DS):
“In my job you have to remember people are brushing my hair every day. You have to remember the last thing I want [on a day off] is a brush in my hair!”
“Products are amazing but if you are putting things that are unhealthy inside your body it’s just masking stuff. I haven’t drank soda in ten years. My kids eat what I eat. The first [solid] food my son had was papaya and then avocado.
Bundchen added that her children have strong taste preferences, explaining: “He loves garlic because we eat a lot of garlic in our house. Even my little daughter, she will not eat anything unless there’s garlic. Garlic and ginger. They really eat what I eat.”
Huh, well… fair enough. I don’t think anyone would dare criticise Gisele’s health and fitness routines, considering. And shit, if that’s how her hair looks WITHOUT a hairbrush on her days off, I think we’re all in trouble. I would just look like a giant frizzball. You go, Gisele. It really brings a whole new meaning to Beyoncé‘s ‘***Flawless’:

Some dude is trying to sell Leonardo DiCaprio‘s old Lexus for $20,000 when it’s probably worth half as much. It’s from 1999 and has 148,091 miles on it. But this dude, Brian thinks he can get that much because, according to TMZ,
the former service manager at the Beverly Hills dealership told him Gisele was a passenger in the car several times when Leo dropped it off for service.
So I guess he’s relying on gross Gisele fans to buy the car. He should really aim for the person spending millions to go to space with DiCaprio.
There’s a relevant Seinfeld for this:

From the Mail:
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen has used her blog to promote natural child birth. The 32-year-old, who is currently expecting her second child to NFL star Tom Brady, has commissioned a new blog post that supports a woman’s right to a drug-free labour.
The post, written by midwife Mayra Calvette who has spoken on behalf of the five-ft 11-in model in previous blog posts, is titled Gentle Birth: This Is The Way! It discusses a woman’s decision to give birth in her home while being cared for ‘by doulas, midwives and obstetric nurses’.
The blog post, seen on Blog.giselebundchen.com, was sparked last month after the Regional Council of Medicine of Rio de Janeiro’s banned the involvement of obstetricians in residential births. The decision also prohibited the use of doulas and midwives during hospital births.
The post by Ms Calvette, who was present when the model gave birth to her first child Benjamin Rein Brady in December, 2009, reads: ‘These resolutions disregard the most current scientific evidence, the recommendations of WHO and the Ministry of Health. Furthermore, these resolutions do not respect the right of freedom of choice of women, families and from the professionals themselves.’
It aims to discourage the rest of Brazil from following suit with such bans. Ms Calvette, an advocate for the home birth renaissance, delves into the extensive research she has conducted during a project titled the Birth Around The World Project.
‘I traveled through several countries, meeting different cultures and birth models that work,’ she wrote. ‘I realised that the most socially developed countries tend to offer a humane and woman-centered care. Pregnant women have the right to choose their companions during childbirth… have the same room for labour, birth and post partum… and can deny any procedure with her and her baby.’
She visited England, Germany, Holland, Austria, Sweden and New Zealand during her research trip.
The supermodel wrote on her blog in January: ‘When Mayra told me her idea about the [project] I thought it was a beautiful idea and knew that it would be really cool if she could share a little bit of this journey on my blog. I had the opportunity to experience the natural process of birth and it was one of the most life changing experiences for me and very very special!’
The Brazilian stunner, who married her quarterback husband in 2009, is not the first model to have publicly endorsed all-natural births.
Miranda Kerr sparked headlines last month after telling Harper’s Bazaar UK that she opted against epidural anesthesia when she gave birth to her son Flynn. The 29-year-old Victoria’s Secret star told the magazine that she decided to perform a natural birth after watching baby-bonding videos which showed that newborns go straight for the breast if they are without the medication. TheStir.com attracted a heated discussion, with one mother posting: ‘Being a supermodel doesn’t make you an expert.’
So as it turns out, OBs can’t doctor at a home, and doulas and/or midwives can’t doctor in hospitals in South America. Which, of course, is crap, because I, too, agree that a woman should be able to make the decision to birth her child in any which *safe* environment she chooses. I’m not always on the Gisele Boat, because I find that if often floats and covers quite a bit of ground on its own hot-ass air, but I totally agree with girlfriend on this.
What I do want to disagree with, however, is the side-note that the Mail added about Miranda Kerr’s anti-drug birthing comments that were made a few months ago. See, I’m really glad that Miranda was able to push out a kid without suffering any complications that would render a C-section necessary, because I just can’t imagine what kind of shape poor Miranda would be in if she had to undergo a C-section without any kind of medication or anesthesia.
That’s all I’ve got.
That, and go Gisele!

Every year the Met Gala happens in New York City, and every year it’s the same thing: super-big-name celebrities are invited gratis, and other, more fledging celebrities have to pay through the nose to secure admission (no joke—Kate Upton paid $25k for her ticket and she does CAT DADDY), and you have good fashion and bad fashion and not a whole lot in between. The event’s always cool, though, because you get to see the best and the worst of celebrity fashion and this year was no exception.
In today’s list, we have Jessica Biel, who wouldn’t be on this list if it weren’t for her engagement to Justin Timberlake (that’s actually not true, but it’s probably how she feels about the situation); Emma Stone, who looks like every little-girl-who-prefers-red-instead-of-pink’s fairy princess come true; Marion Cotillard and bangs that are as short and choppy as that one time when I cut my own with meat scissors back in after I saw them on some girl on E! on wine night—only difference is they look good on her; Gisele Bundchen, who can barely do any wrong (’til she opens her mouth, anyway); and Camilla Belle, who is really coming into her own and looking fierce as hell.
Honorable mention? Carey Mulligan, up top. Not many people can pull off a dress that says, “No, don’t look at me—look at you!”
#5 – Jessica Biel
#4 – Gisele Bundchen
#3 – Marion Cotillard
#2 – Emma Stone
#1 – Camilla Belle
Who looked the best?
