Gisele Bundchen curated an all-Gisele coffee table book which costs $700

I believe education and love are the two most powerful tools we have to change our world. Viviane Senna is a true example of it. Over the past 20 years she's taken up the challenge to improve the educational system in Brazil as the front person for the @institutoayrtonsenna They focus on additional academic help and teacher training. The institute helps improve the lives of 2 million children yearly. Her courage, determination and love makes Viviane Senna #MyModelCitizen . Who's yours? #action2015 #GlobalGoals 📚🙏❤️ Para mim a educação e o amor são as ferramentas mais poderosas para mudar o mundo. Viviane Senna é um exemplo disso. Ela encarou o desafio e trabalha a frente do Instituto Ayrton Senna á 20 anos para melhorar a educação no Brasil, através de programas de reforço escolar e também de capacitação dos professores. O Instituto atinge cerca de 2 milhões de crianças a cada ano. Por sua coragem, determinação e amor, Viviane Senna é #mymodelcitizen . Quem é o seu cidadão exemplar?

A photo posted by Gisele Bündchen (@gisele) on

Here’s an Instagram Gisele posted last week. This feels like a new photo too, not some photo from last year that Gisele is passing off as a new Instagram. The reason I’m saying that is because… her face looks subtly different. Allegedly, when she was wandering around Paris in a burqa and ducking into a plastic surgeon’s office, she got some breast work AND some eye work. I kind of think she might have gotten some subtle fillers as well. Just my opinion.

Anyway, what do Gisele and Kim Kardashian have in common besides facial tweaking? They’ve both got coffee table books devoted to themselves. Kim’s “coffee table book” was Selfish and it apparently sold poorly, although it was pretty affordable. Amazon is currently selling it for $9.99. But you’re going to need a lot more if you want to enjoy Gisele’s coffee table book. The book cost $700!!!!

It’s going to cost you! If you want a new deluxe book of Gisele Bundchen photos, you’re going to have to pony up $700. And yes, the book contains nude pictures of the world’s highest-paid model. According to the publisher, Taschen—a German-based company—the book will be 11 inches by 15.4 inches and is “personally curated and designed by Gisele in collaboration with [creative director] Giovanni Bianco.”

Only 1,000 copies of the limited edition page-turner will be in print, each of which will be personally signed by Bundchen, 35. The book will contain 300 photos of the model, shot by world-renowned photographers like Irving Penn, David LaChapelle, and Juergen Teller.

Though $700 for a book might seem steep, it’s nothing compared to the annual salary the Brazilian beauty makes. She’s earned the top spot on the Forbes list of the highest-paid models since 2002, beating out Karlie Kloss, Kate Moss, and Cara Delevingne by a landslide. She even makes nearly five times more than her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, according to Forbes.

Kim Kardashian did a “collector’s edition” as well and that only costs $100, and I’m sure she would sign it for free. I mean, I’m sure Gisele has super-fans who will pay extra to get a specially “curated” book – ALL GISELE! – which is signed and “limited.” But it does seem… excessive? Goop-esque? See, but even Gwyneth didn’t mess around like this – her cookbooks were actually very affordable ($18-35) AND they included personal photos and stories from Gwyneth too. So… do you think Gisele is really overestimating the interest for this kind of luxury vanity project?

    Who on earth would pay that much money for a book, when there are thousands of pictures of her online for free ?

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      Exactly. I don’t find her beautiful or interesting in the least, but my bff paid $100 for the Kate Moss book as a gift to me so I suppose I shouldn’t judge!

  2. Snazzy says:

    ya …. no.

    • evermore says:

      More coming on Nanny, Tom Superbowl ring jet flight to Las Vegas according to Daily Mail

      • Christin says:

        The nanny isn’t going anywhere, apparently.

        Does anyone think she and those two guys (plus anyone else who might have been on that plane) spent the whole trip discussing world events?

  3. Tate says:

    Would be interesting to see how many of those 1,000 limited edition books sell. Who the hell would pay $700 for a Giselle book?? I wouldn’t pay $1.99

    • Santia says:

      Well, considering that there are 7 billion people (give or take) on planet Earth, I assume they will find 1000 suckers willing to buy this book. But, yeah, seems like a money grab.

    • magz says:

      I’d borrow yours cause I really don’t think I want to clutter my apartment with such a large book of just one woman.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      You’ve got me beat, I wouldn’t want a book of Mrs. Smugness for FREE. Blech…

      I wonder if there is a chapter on pre and post plastic sugery photos?

      • Pondering thoughts says:

        Couldn’t someone just photoshop the plastic surgery out of her so that we can compare?

  4. mkyarwood says:

    Im’a save my $700 and buy a bunch of books for my kids. Sorry, GiGi.

  5. NewWester says:

    Something is very wrong when a coffee table book can cost more than the table you would put it on! At my house either someone would put a drink on the book or my granddaughter would decide to ” draw pretty pictures” all over it.

    • Livealot says:

      Agreed. As much as I heart Giselle, maybe if it was Naomi or some other legend that has passed… Yet still 700$$?? 300 at the absolute most!

    • Wren says:

      If you’re the kind of person who would buy a $700 Giselle book then you are also the kind of person who has a coffee table from somewhere like Restoration Hardware that costs more than a mortgage payment.

  6. Lilacflowers says:

    How many has Roger Goodell ordered?

    • C. C. Cedras says:

      ^^^^^ This exactly. I was just thinking she’ll probably sell out all 1,000 copies to the NFL, players, coaches, every man child who has wondered about what TB gets to see up close every day. GAH

      • Lilacflowers says:

        And Goodell went to all that trouble to get the phone when he could have just waited for the book.

  8. Katie says:

    She and Pinnochio must be laughing at all the peasants.

  9. jolene says:

    She’s donating all profits to charity, right?

  10. lower-case deb says:

    i’d buy it for 700 yen.

  11. Palar says:

    At that price it is likely to be a very high quality print on archival paper, a work of art as a book. If executed to a high level as a limited edition I would expect that they will all sell and will increase in value over the years.

  12. Trishizle says:

    She’s pretty annoying and the price of the book is ridiculous but I so wish I had her hair! No one has better hair than Gisele

    • mytbean says:

      no kidding… Her hair is amazing. Is that all genetics, that texture? I mean, the color is not but the texture is so smooth but not oily. I’m hair obsessed.

      • Pondering thoughts says:

        I am sure if you ask her she will love to lecture you about how you have to eat for your hair and not just stuff anything down your throat … Smug Gisele as we know her.

        Apart from that her hair is amazing. But so is her stylist’s and hairdresser’s bill. If you look for pics of her without such ridiculously over-done hair you will find it looks rather normal to plain. If she isn’t going to get photographed she doesn’t have an amazing mane.
        Try google images with: “Gisele out”.

  13. Kym says:

    I can totally see the Brady’s giving left-overs of these out for Christmas presents.
    “Here is an exclusive autographed picture book of me’re welcome.”
    Teachers/Maids/nannies/chef -“uh, thanks..but holiday bonus?..F my life”

  14. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Hahahaha! No way! I want to meet the person who pays $700 for a book of Gisele selfies. I want to shake his hand because he’s officially the dumbest man on earth.

    • Christin says:

      My sentiments as well. Even if she gives ‘profits’ (using that term loosely, as celebrities can still dip into the pot) to charity, I can donate myself.

    • Ange says:

      Gisele selfies…. Or Giselfies?

    • CR says:

      Selfies? It’s NOT a book of selfies.
      “The book will contain 300 photos of the model, shot by world-renowned photographers like Irving Penn, David LaChapelle, and Juergen Teller!”

  15. Christin says:

    This is the first photo where I can detect a facial difference since her infamous Paris trip.

    She is all over the Daily Fail today. One article suggests the nanny plane photo may have more to it than she can find out. It’s picked up from a tab story, so who knows.

    • evermore says:

      YES more to come on that Nanny story. I never bought that Tom was innocently just letting her flash the rings.

    • The other paige says:

      ITA-also those lips look jacked-subtle, but jacked.

    • It must’ve settled–right after the Paris trip, I saw some pics of her in Boston (I think?) with Brady–early in the morning, no make up type deal…..her face looked JACKED. Mainly around her eyes, she looked very tightened and squinty.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      The cheek implants are popping, and her eyes are different.

      I can’t get over the fact that the “most beautiful woman in the world” felt she needed plastic surgery. WTH is wrong with our culture? How could she possibly be feeling insecure about her looks? Why are fake apple cheeks a thing?

      • CR says:

        Is this a joke? She has high cheekbones. She doesn’t need cheek implants. Look at that last pic.
        She got “some eye work” but I think her eyes look the same.

  16. Fancypants says:

    I’m not a big fan of hers but she looks beautiful in that first pic. Her face looks a little plumper. Idk if she had work done-hard to tell from one pic with great lighting- but if she did it was really good work.

  17. CR says:

    What are you talking about? “What do Gisele and Kim Kardashian have in common?” What do KATE MOSS and Gisele have in common? Coffee table book (Taschen). Kate and Gisele are SUPERMODELS. Kim is a reality star!
    Gwyneth’s cookbooks were affordable? Of course… It’s a COOKBOOK!

  18. crtb says:

    These books will be purchased by her and given as gifts.

  19. OTHER RENEE says:

    All I can say is OF COURSE her book costs $700.

    Oh, and I loathe the word “curate.” It’s right up there with “unpack” and “organic.”

  20. Cari says:

    If all these books sell (and sadly, they likely will) she will make $700,000!!!!!!! FML
    The rich just keep getting richer!

  21. Veronica says:

    The cost is more likely due to the photographer than the model. Don’t get me wrong – I’m sure it’s a giant ego stroke for her, one that she hardly needs – but usually the selling point of those books is the art of the photography not necessarily the subject.

  22. Pondering thoughts says:

    Gisele’s upper lip keeps getting bigger and bigger.

    Those wrinkles forming when she is laughing big stop right under her cheekbones. Is that a sign of cheek implants?

  23. nadeshot says:

    this book looks very beautiful, i may just buy one.
