No need to attack Lisa for what she believes just because it’s negative. She probably could have said it more lightly but whatever. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and no one is perfect. We don’t need to be attacking each other. I hate seeing personal attacks.
I read somewhere that Gisele makes so much not necessarily because she is the hottest/most beautiful, but she works very very hard, does a lot of shoots,etc. Hard work pays off!
They are all beautiful! :)

She is so lucky!! She has Tom Brady!!

modeling is very hard work…it isn’t just being pampered & having your hair/makeup done…they ALL work hard, and deserve the huge payoffs!

Gisele Bundchen is a pretty woman but that picture of her is horrible nothing sexy about her in that picture.

i’m sorry, but i really dont think gisele is that pretty either. Whether she cares or not… beauty is not subjective. There are many different concepts of what makes a woman beautiful. She is just simply not my idea. Now, with that said im sure their are others that do think she’s pretty, but Lisa is entitled to her own opinion. Oh, i also must agree with the guy who said adrianna lima was beautiful. She’s stunning.

Adriana Lima is overrated. Her features are a bit wonky and she has bad teeth.

Jennifer on

Giselle isn’t pretty.

Gisele is not a conventional beauty, but she has something going on for her. Besides Leo Dicaprio and Tom Brady can not be completely blind.
I think she is very LUCKY, and I would give one arm/leg to be in her shoes.

Both Gisele and Heidi are extremely beautiful women. Do you think they would be paid that much if they weren’t?
