Gisele Bundchen, Swimwear in the Amazon

by Alice Byrne

Following on from her four covers for the July issue of Vogue Brazil, here Gisele Bundchen stars in an editorial spread shot by Jaques Dequeker in the breath-taking Amazon Rainforest. In this swimwear shoot, Gisele shows off her fantastic body in a dynamic series of poses in from-fitting fashion choices that were chosen by fashion editor, Daniela Paudice.

This editorial was featured alongside another shoot in New York by Patrick Demarchelier, and although I had previously said I had preferred the New York shoot, after going through these images again, I feel like this Amazon series is a really fantastic spread for Gisele. It is a perfect swimwear shoot, and it is just the kind of modelling that Gisele is so amazing at.

I love the styling of Gisele’s wet hair, and the subtle make-up, as this really allows the stunning swimwear pieces to stand out and be the focal point of the photographs. The location of this shoot is obviously stunning (the Amazon Rainforest has to be one of the greatest locations for photography in the whole world), and I think the setting works really well alongside the swimwear designs. It is without a doubt a beautiful location, but as it is so wonderfully simple, it does not detract from the fashion and styling.
