Gisele Bündchen appeared four times on the cover of Vogue in 1999, becoming one of the year's most celebrated models in the process. The next year Rolling Stone magazine labelled her "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" and she had become a superstar. Gisele Bündchen has since been featured in high-profile campaigns for Christian Dior, Guess, Victoria's Secret, Pantene, Apple computers, and dozens of other products. Forbes magazine called her the highest-paid model in the business in 2006, 2007 and 2008, and put her at the top of a list of a new breed of entrepreneur/supermodels. She began dating pro football star Tom Brady in 2007, pushing her notoriety to a whole new level. (The pair married in February of 2009 and had a son, Benjamin Rein Brady, in December of that year.) Gisele Bündchen has also dabbled in acting, with roles in the films Taxi (2004, with Queen Latifah) and The Devil Wears Prada (2006, with Meryl Streep).
