After an Eight-Year Hiatus, Gisele Bündchen Returns as the Face of Loewe’s Fall 2017 Campaign

It’s hard to believe that we haven’t seen Gisele Bündchen in print since the cover of Vogue Brazil back in November 2016. Thankfully, that’s about to change with the unveiling of the Brazilian bombshell’s latest campaign. Appearing in two campaign photos as the face of Loewe’s Fall 2017 collection, Gisele’s return to the spotlight marks a reunion with both Loewe and legendary photographer Steven Meisel.

As the images made their way onto our forums earlier today, forum members found themselves a little startled over the outcome. “Wow! The second one (below) is amazing. The first one (above) looks a bit odd though, looks like her head isn’t attached to her body,” Scotty commented straight away.

“The second one looks beautiful. BUT it doesn’t look like Gisele,” cried out MON.

Sharing the same sentiments toward the images was dodencebt, exclaiming, “Woah, I got chills. The first one could be Lily Aldridge for all we know but the second one is an incredible shot of Gisele. We have been seeing her as ‘Gisele’ in everything for so long that whenever someone does a themed shoot nowadays with her I am first amazed and then reminded that she was once a versatile model.”

Benn98 felt the same way. “Same here, love the second shot. A bit heavily retouched, and recycling the set feels a bit lazy, but she looks stunning here!” he agreed.

“The second shot is giving me everything. A reminder of how amazing she can be,” admired TaylorBinque.
