Gisele Bundchen Wants You To Buy Ipanema Sandals!

These were snapped in Berlin, Germany.

Here’s more about the sandals & about Gisele’s recently auctioned nude photograph…

She has her own line of sandals with footwear company Grendene called Ipanema Gisele Bündchen. Forbes puts her 53rd on their list of the most powerful celebrities of 2007 due to the success of her shoe line. Custom Ipanema flip-flops sell for as much as $230 a pair.[17] She is also the owner of a hotel in the south of Brazil, the Palladium Executive.

At April 11, 2008, a black-and-white photo of Bündchen, shot by Irving Penn, was auctioned for USD 193,000.00 (£96,000.00). The picture was one of dozens from the collection of Gert Elfering that were sold at Christie’s International in New York. In all, the auction tallied US$ 4.27 million and included pictures of Brigitte Bardot, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Carla Bruni. Bündchen’s picture reached the highest price in comparison with all others famous personalities. Bardot was the second with USD 181,000.00 (£90,000.00). [Wiki]
