Gisele Bundchen for Balenciaga
Steven Meisel

Just as we’ve finally made peace with her impossibly long legs and perfect beach-tousled waves, Gisele Bündchen premieres a brand new look that has us clamoring for a page-boy cut and motorcycle vest! Appearing in Balenciaga’s spring/summer 2011 ad campaign (photographed by Steven Meisel) in a look pulled from the Parisian catwalk, Gisele is a far cry from her usual sun-drenched siren. “It’s a reaction to a certain kind of sexiness,” designer Nicolas Ghesquière told of his latest collection. “It’s about individuality.” And the veteran model, who walked the runway for the brand alongside superstars including Amber Valletta and Miranda Kerr, taps into the season’s androgynous trend in a plasticized blouse, chambray and leather topper and relaxed slacks, however we’re most shocked about her masculine disguise in the black-and-white image above. Also striking? Gisele’s new ‘do—a gleaming, stripey page-boy cut, which she juxtaposes with a smoldering gaze. And while we pretty much like anything the Brazilian bombshell does, we’re not sure how we feel about this new rough and tumble Gisele. Tell us: What do you think of Gisele’s Balenciaga ads? Do you love them or hate them?Justine Harman

Kerri on

I must say… I usually LOVE anything that Gisele is in, but I have to admit… This is a horrid ad. There is nothing attractive or appealing about it.

SM on

So now she and her husband will have the same hairstyle. Hmm.

Lori on

Not a fan. I really don’t like this look.

jj on

She looks like she has a wig on. No one’s real hair is that shiny and fake looking.

Dolores on

Its horible, I hate it. She looks like a cross dresser.

Pat on

She is okay but these designers are way out there, to think that we want to look like our parents again. Blah!!!

anonymous on

UGH to the hair and the ad

Kate on

Ew. Her hair looks as bad as Tom’s.

Denise on

She looks like Kate Moss in the left pic. She’s so beautiful but these aren’t her best pics.

Mary on

These pictures would have been just the advertisement for the “Walking Dead” movie.
