Gisele Bündchen’s legs might not walk runways anymore, but they’re still modeling for Stuart Weitzman.
While the brand claims that the Fall 2015 advertising campaign puts their new ALLLEGS boot on “center stage,” it’s the model mom herself that’s truly the focus of attention for anyone given the gift of sight. She might be wearing the 28-inch suede thigh-high boots, but it’s the hint of backside above where the boot hits on her leg that’s really the eye-catcher. Sure, it’s supposed to be all about the shoes, but the pelvage dress (one with hip-high slits that reveals pelvic bones) she’s wearing, defies that order. Shot by Mario Testino, the black and white image might be minimalistic in its aesthetic, but the 34-year-old’s sexiness is far from subtle.
Bündchen debuted as the face of Stuart Weitzman, which was acquired by Coach in January for $574 million, in the Fall 2014 advertising campaign, similarly seemingly pulling off the impossible, showing off lots of skin despite promoting thigh-high boots. “I could not have picked a better pair of legs than Gisele’s to show off such a sexy boot,” designer Stuart Weitzman himself said in statement. “She defines the term ALLEGS, and inspired its name.”
The highest paid model in the world, the mother of two walked in her final show in April. "Automatically my body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop. I respect my body, it’s a privilege to be able to stop,“ she said at the time. She added that halting would “leave room for other projects I have for myself.”
And if the other jobs look like this, surely no one’s going to be complaining about the catwalk loss.
