Gisele Rocks the Rio Runway

Gisele Bundchen made a bit of a homecoming as she took to the catwalk in Brazil for Fashion Rio.

The supermodel, from Horizontina, a small town in the south of Brazil, was thrilled to be back for the annual fashion show. "I always loved Rio de Janeiro," Gisele said. "So, it's always a pleasure to be in Brazil and also in Rio."

The fashion icon arrived to fashion label Colcci's show surrounded by a group of bodyguards. Gisele is still under contract to the fashion house until next year, and its catwalk show is one of the few Gisele still works since breaking into advertising work for brands like Victoria's Secret.

Gisele opened the show for Colcci's Spring-Summer 2007 collection, titled 'A Week at the Beach,' wearing a short beige dress with white embroidery. Colcci's new season of off-white, beige and grey clothing are designed to be summer outfits that can be worn any time of day, to any occasion.
