Gisele's Post-Baby Bikini Body Sizzles in New Ad Campaign

06/22/2010 at 12:30 PM ET

Courtesy of Calzedonia

It was a little more than a week ago that Gisele Bündchen took to the runway for the first time since giving birth in December, flaunting her flawless post-baby figure during Sao Paolo Fashion Week. But it turns out that the new mother had gotten her famously flawless figure back long before then: Just-released images from Calzedonia’s Spring/Summer 2011 swimwear campaign–which was shot in February, according to InStyle.com–feature the 29-year-old supermodel showing off her picture-perfect physique in a tiny string bikini–a mere two months after giving birth to baby Benjamin! Donning a jewel-encrusted swimsuit from the Italian beachwear label, the Brazilian beauty was back in tip-top form posing for the camera on a tropical beach. With her new family in order, it seems as if the supermodel’s career is still on fire. We can’t wait to see what’s in store next for her! See more shots from Gisele’s campaign at InStyle.com.–David Yi

jessica on

woooow I love her. she is so gorgeous and can model absolutely anything! from gowns to swimsuits. one of a kind model!

ta on

The next is a second Baby

giseleloves on

yowza. her face is even more perfect than her body!

Mandy on

must be nice

jlsmter on

darlings… I’ve been an entertainment and fashion retoucher for 20 years… this is not her body. she’s heavily retouched to have such nice, taut, smooth, 18-year-old belly skin. people, wake up. i’ve retouched for this publication and many others like it.

Kelly on

She has a big nose.

Kelly on

Good for her but CERTAINLY NOT realistic. Also, there was at least some airbrushing involved.

I feel this puts a lot of undue pressure on new moms.

Kelly on

Thanks @jlmster! So true! Thanks for giving us the REAL scoop!

Rolyat on

Sorry, but I don’t see it. She’s not that beautiful. And she’s presently the highest paid model in the industry. I hope she saves her money. Cause the looks are already slipping.

Sienna on

People who say she is anything less then gorgeous are crazy! (I know…everyone has different taste & their own opinion)…but I think she is beautiful and always has been. And obviously I know there was major retouching in this photo I’m sure…she still has an amazing body. Even when you see paparazzi photos of her on the beach, she still looks pretty perfect.

Rosa on

This is not realistic – there’s no way after 2 months of giving birth she looks this perfect. Has anyone ever heard of airbrushed?

KRN on

FAKE!

Fabiana on

Please, the name of the city is Sao Paulo NOT Sao Paolo.

nacho on

I’d be that perfect too if I had a photo retoucher in my life. yes, she is tall, yes, she is skinny, but perfect.. far from it.

PATRIE on

She looks great! Of course there’s some retouching, but most of it is her. She was smart, and ate healthy, and exercised during her pregnancy. Seriously, it’s makes me sick when I hear women say, “I’m eating for two” while they are pregnant. It is just an excuse to overeat and eat anything you want anytime. Then, they blame the “baby fat” for the next 5 years! I ate healthy, and exercised during my entire pregnancy (second child by the way) and lost all of my pregnancy weight within a year. We are definitely all not the same, and we gain and lose weight differently, but be honest with yourselves, she does look awesome ;-)

anonymous on

For people who think this was retouched, etc. here is the video:

lexiloo on

her and kesha have similar features.

JAMTX on

OK, of COURSE there is airbrushing involved but that doesn’t mean this girl still doesn’t have a knock out body! She has good genes and I disagree about new moms, if you can’t realize that some people just have good genes and others just have to work a little harder that that is your problem not hers.

Dawn on

Now that’s a SUPERMODEL!…

BARBARA on

The correct name is Sao PAULO for the love of god is the second bigest city of the world in population !!!!!!

moreag on

Ever since her irresponsible and callus quote about pregnant women …”I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals” I have lost all respect for her. Those of us who have had baby already feel self conscious about the extra flab on our bellies I don’t need you rubbing your airbrushed body in my face.

I exercised every day, watched what I ate and still gained 50 pounds. Every woman is different so to characterize us as garbage disposals in just ignorant.

T.Bone on

Is it not this womans job to look fabulous? This is what she gets paid to do. I do my job to the best of my ability and I get paid for it. Not near as much as she does by the way but the better I work the better I get paid. If we got paid millions to look fantastic who of us would not put 100% into that?

JJ on

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – there’s always going to be one person that doesn’t find the most beautiful person attractive. To call Gisele anything less is crazy.

Jim on

Isn’t it amazing what they can do with photography and photochop and surgery these days?

SJP on

There’s no way that photo wasn’t heavily retouched.

Shona on

I am sure that is not touched up at all….PLEASE

Stephen Leonard on

Oooooo momma you look good

Leelee on

Fake or not…this woman is only 29! If I had had my first child prior to 30 I am damn sure I would look like this too. I am still a size 4, but after 2 kids…there is stretching that doesnt reverse. She should love it and work hard for it as long as she can!

andre on

GISELE IS BEAUTIFUL. WOMEN WISH THEY CAN HAVE KIDS AND GO GET THERE BODY LIKE THIS AFTER HAVING IT. IN THE USA, THIS COUNTRY IS SO OVERWEIGHT AND NOT HEALTHY ITS A SHAME. GISELE IS MARVELOUS!!!!! I LOVE IT….A LOT OF WOMEN TODAY CANT EVEN SHOW THERE BODIES RIGHT AFTER THEY HAVE A CHILD

Diane on

You can bet Tom ain’t complaining!!!! Imagine being gorgeous, rich and having Tom Brady for a husband….I still wish her all the best, although she’s already got it!! Go Gisele!

Lisa on

Whether it’s airbrushed or not, there are other photos out there of Giselle, not ‘airbrushed’ and she is CLEARLY this tiny. She was skinny to begin with, she maintained her health and figure while pregnant and got right back into shape. Come on, give the woman credit for taking care of herself before you cast stones….

Lisa on

Keep in mind, celebrities, as well as many of us, say things that are taken out of context all the time. Not to mention, journalists ALWAYS cut the article to fit and for a good read. Giselle is not American nor born American and her ‘language’ and meaning is different than Americans. Cut her some slack….I’m sure what you interpreted as ‘garbage disposal’ meant something entirely different to her. I have friends all over the country and the language barrier tends to be a problem, but going into a conversation and knowing this beforehand, allows for LESS misunderstandings and reading into things.

Moo Moo on

Women no longer blow up like balloons to have babies, so this is nothing new. Besides, I recall the London Fog campaign where the airbrushed out her big pregnant belly completely, so who knows if this is even what she looks like or not. I was back at my pre-baby hot body within a few weeks of giving birth too… so who cares? yawn.

sarah on

She is a very angry mean woman She has had alot of plastic surgery and starves her self and tom cheats on her

disbeliever on

there is no way anyone can look like that two months after giving birth!

SouthBay on

People get over yourselves ok.. Although the pic obviously have some retouching, it does not take away the fact that Gisele, perhaps, has an amazing body even without retouching. Gisele has a natural skinny body and had a tiny belly even at 9 months of pregnancy. My sister has 2 kids, no stretch marks, and an amazing body without retouching. Don’t hate, appreciate.

jean on

dont think she is attractive. big nose and stringy hair.

STEFANY on

Sorry, but I don’t see it. She’s not that beautiful. And she’s presently the highest paid model in the industry.
******************************
@Rolyat

I totallY agree, I’ve never understood the obsession over this chick, she’s very average in the face.

Tommy on

Yea I hit that before she was famous

Mary Ann on

Excuse me? Can anyone say “air brush” please?

Tommy on

Yea. I hit that before she was famous!!

Monica on

Too skinny…this is not what a Woman’s body looks like….unrealistic.

Sienna on

She’s the top paying model (whether you think she is attractive or not) because she knows how to work the camera. She knows how to pose for the photo and she has the most engaging eyes. Not many people can take photos like that…not even every model can have such engaging eyes, that really capture you, in every single one of their photos. But Gisele does. If you’ve ever seen her during a shoot in person (or on a video) she moves in ways that almost looks contortionistic…but then the photo is amazing. The girl knows how to model.

Maria on

She is beautiful, a unique, exotic beautiful. But let’s not forget the wonders of Photoshop, okay? This lady just had a baby, and no matter how beautiful she may appear on a magazine cover, it is in no way au naturale. Not even possible. Is it a beautiful cover? Yes. Is it Gisele’s real body? No.

Selena on

I dont even think she is PRETTY – sexy, yes. Tall and great body, yes. Pretty NO. Elle MacPherson is pretty – Adrianna Lima is pretty but this chick ? nope…its the body.

Shawna on

You can’t tell me her photo hasn’t been touched up.

eileenfeather on

She is a beautiful average all around women. She has a great metabolism and I think the bench work with tome helps too. How about the two boys. Way to go Giselle.

Leslie on

Why do they post this, to make us mother’s feel bad about ourselves! I know she is beautiful and is retouched on the photo but come on People you can do better than that!

Anna on

I would like to know how all these models and actresses can have a baby and not have any strech marks??? I want to know how!!

Tuchi on

I’m sure most of this is her body, but there were some touch ups. I believe she got into shape ASAP mainly because this is her job. I mean, if we all had a personal trainer and a chef to cook what we should be eating and all that jazz, then i’m sure most of us would look the same!!! Money can buy you anything, right??? Regardless, she looks great!!

Tessa on

She looks really good considering she just had a baby She is beautiful and tall and wheater or not she had a Baby it doesnt matter her body is perfect : )

Tuchi on

@Anna-My sister had 4 children and does not have ONE stretch mark!!!! My mom is the same. All of my other sisters were not so lucky. It’s all in the elasticity of your skin! Good genes I guess! :)

Lynn on

Are there people out there still amazed by the fact she looks this good just 2 months after giving birth??? REALLY??? Haven’t we heard enough from actors who tell us not to believe what we see because of all that retouching stuff and still people seem so amazed by how she looks. Don’t get me wrong she is physically a beautiful women but lets not be so naive.

anonymous on

LOOK AT THE VIDEO, PEOPLE!!!

She looks amazing in real, THIS HAS NOT BEEN HEAVILY PHOTOSHOPPED!!!

Jesse on

Saw her in person in NYC after the baby (have seen her before too). She looks pretty much like this. Maybe they touched up her skin smoothness but she really does look this good. Sheesh, the way people talk about touching up and photoshop you’d think she was a 700 lb wildebeest to start.

Bee on

That video is from the 2010 collection–if it was shot around the same time of the year, she wouldn’t have been pregnant yet… the picture People posted is from the 2011 collection, and it is absolutely retouched… anyone who believes otherwise is naive. But way to make your readers feel worse about themselves, People!

Jon on

Whatever!

Samantha on

Great body…of course its been retouched. She is pretty but I’ve seen prettier models. I’ve never really understood why she is so popular, I think she’s overrated. The bathing suit is great but who the heck would swim in it? Especially since its probably several hundred dollars. SHeesh

Gisele Bündchen Shows Off Her AMAZING Body In Calzedonia Swimwear « Gossip @ R Web on

[...] swimwear. Now, it’s not really anything special to see Gisele looking so perfect but this photo from the Calzedonia Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaign was shot back in February … 2 months after she gave birth to her baby boy Benjamin [...]

Monica on

Besides being gorgeous and a supermom, married to the man that every woman wishes, Gisele donates loads of her money to CHARITY. I think its because god is too good to her…cant stand reading this jealous comments about her. I hope you are all fit and perfect looking people!!!

Pam on

Thank goodness for airbrushing in her case-also whats wrong with some curves she is almost built like a boy

Benilde on

Everything is possible with photoshop. Give me a break.

Quit lying to yourself on

She may have a good body but people get real this isnt her real body…EVERYONE in the industry gets airbrushed and touched up, its part of the business…This is NOT her TRUE body!!!

Christine on

With her money, her husband’s money, the ability to hire cooks, nannies, personal trainers and workout on your own schedule – sure after having a baby any new mom could do it also. Why don’t they try listing the reality of how she got that body back? I would have a lot more respect for that if she was an average full-time working mom who did it all on her own as well as cooked her own dishes, didn’t have the millions to hire all the others to take care of her newborn, etc. then I would say, excellent work.

FrenchLady on

I sure do not want to rain on anyone’s parade there, but these pictures are so touched and retouched before they hit the press, it is not funny. So stars will always appear at their “best” on pictures and magazines. Just keep that in mind – photobrushing….

Fritz on

ABSOLUTELY A RETOUCHED PHOTO… Not that it matters… she’s still has the”skinny” on hot!

Rita on

..after my first baby, my body came right back..even better. AFtger #2 and especially after #3..No way. I have always been fit and still work out religiously…can’t get rid of the baby belly jiggle that I have. It really doesn’t snap back after being stretched so many times. (Not w/o surgery!

chari on

DO YOU MORANS REALLY BELIEVE THIS ?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tom on

OK, the reality is that the body is def retouched but she is not attractive at all. Her face is pretty bad. The body is too thin. Ever hear of airbrushing? Her face has freckles but her body is flawless. Bad Photoshopping! Ewwww

Sara on

OK, total airbrushing going on here. No one has THAT perfect of a post-baby body. No One.

Sharon on

She looks great, but I guarantee there was a great deal of re-touching on her photo. No woman, no woman looks like that after carrying a baby to full-term and shame on publications producing these unrealistic photos of women who have been “made” to look perfect. Sad really.

jennfanta on

This picture is definitely airbrushed!! Look under her bellybutton, it is indented! I don’t think she is attractive, her body looks like a 12 year-old boy, and her nose is huge!

Ashley on

I would give just about anything to be as beautiful as Gisele! That woman is amazing! Love her!

annie on

While I think she does look AMAZING, it’s very obvious that there has been some airbrushing. I hate that women judge themselves according to things like this.

veraroberts on

I think she looks better.

Danielle on

Where’s her dark line down the center of her tummy? I gave birth 9 months ago and mine is still there! Heidi Klum still had hers in her anniversary getting married for the gazillionth time wedding pics. I dont doubt that she looks fab, but these are definitely not realistic!

Jesse on

Chari…you misspelled morons. LMAO!!!!

royy on

the picture is totally retouched!!! she needs to stay out of the sun…looking old!!!

Megan on

While this may be an airbrushed or touched up photo.. her body is not impossible to have 2mos after giving birth. It takes a lot of work to get that tight belly back and a lot of people focus more on tending to their child than being indulged in self vanity, but it’s not impossible!

Jesse on

Uh, it’s not self-vanity…their bodies are their jobs. Just like a regular working mom leaves her child and goes to work they do the same thing. I don’t understand why there are such petty, mean spirited comments on this board. Are you all that unhappy with your lives that you have to rip someone that you don’t even know apart to feel good about yourself? Why do women do that to each other?

And remember Alessandra Ambrosio (VS model)? She was in the tabs at the beach 1 month after giving birth and she looked amazing. Then 3 months later she was in the VS runway show…and none of those were retouched and she looked like she never even had a kid. Google it and you’ll see.

Some people also just look good after giving birth. My sister looked amazing and wore her pre-pregnancy jeans out of the hospital with her newborn. Me? My son is a year old and I still look pregnant..LOL! This article doesn’t make me feel bad though, this is her job…good for her!

Tamara on

She may look amazing here, but I’d love to see what the unedited versions of the photos look like. I gave birth eight months ago and don’t find it even remotely fair to make it seem like this is the norm postpartum (it’s not).

Bridget on

Touched up photography is a beautiful thing…

maya on

If you don’t use pregnancy as an excuse to pig out and stop exercising, then chances are good that your baby-weight gain will really be just baby-weight.

Too many women use pregnancy as an excuse to let themselves go. Providing that all other circumstances are good, if you eat healthy and stay active, then chances are good to excellent that you’ll bounce back from giving birth in a relatively short time too.

dina on

I don’t understand all the stuff written about losing all your baby weight. I have had three children and have been back to “my fighting weight” within a few weeks. With my daughter {baby #2} I zipped up a size 4 (pre baby weight) when I left the hospital. I gained 20 lbs per baby and lost it right away.
So don’t gain a ton of weight and don’t eat like it’s a buffet….that’s the secret….

Casasoff on

I’ll believe THAT when I see the untouched photos!
Coming from a Mom who got back in to great shape after her second child….I’ll tell you that body is not possible 2 months after you give birth…no matter how much you take care of yourself.

Casasoff on

Well they’re actually saying now that it wasn’t preventable. Birds drop hard objects all the time in to the ocean and in to the tanks. It was the pocket combined WITH the objects.
Nonetheless, tragic. We’re not even going to address it with Clarissa. Jess plans on spending a lot of time with the kids there this summer and hopefully she won’t notice the absense of the baby :o(

Cristina on

I have never thought she was attractive and she is definitely overrated.

Maria on

Stunning. I really appreciate her.

Carla on

Every woman is different…. I was a human garbage disposal with both my pregnancies and had a hard time even gaining 20lbs… 2 weeks after I gave birth my belly was completely back to normal with diet or excercise. She is just one of the lucky ones.

Carla on

oops I meant WITHOUT diet or excercise :))

Gwladys on

I prefer Bar Refaeli, she’s more beautiful than Gisele, she is perfect!!

Jesse on

Casasoff, sorry to break it to you but go to youtube and search for Gisele Bundchen Post-Baby bikini shoot and they have the video of her, not touched up and she looks just like this.

Plus, google Alessandra Ambrosio (VS model) and you will see her look amazing just one month post-pregnancy at the beach in untouched paparazzi photos and also when she was on the VS runway show on TV. Some people just got it like that. It’s their job to look this good.

Whether airbrushed or not, I agree that this picture puts undue pressure on new mothers. 2 months after giving birth AND a flat tummy – some bodies are capable of this, but most are not. It’s especially sad that a lot of women don’t want to breastfeed, because they want to get back into bikinis in two months after giving birth.
