Gisele Bundchen Foregoes Photoshop

Photo by Antonio de Moraes Barros Filho/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- Gisele Bundchen is arguably the pinnacle of feminine perfection, but the Brazilian bombshell says she is embracing her imperfections and wants all women to have the freedom to do the same.

The internationally famous supermodel, 32, shot her latest ad campaign for BLK DMN without any kind of makeup, professional hairdressing or the help of Photoshop, according to the fashion blog

“I feel like women should be really real and raw and it doesn’t happen anymore [in fashion photographs],” she told, crediting designer/photographer Johan Lindeberg for his unconventional approach. “I love that feeling of, you know, we are women, we are so different, our imperfections are what make us unique and beautiful. He gets that. He’s not trying to retouch you or put a pretty light on you. He’s not like ‘you gotta look a certain way.’ He’s like, ‘you are you’ so now I’m gonna just be here with a camera, so express yourself how you like.”

Bundchen poses in a series of 25 yet-to-be-released portraits, shot by Lindeberg, for DLK DNM’s “Wild” campaign, in which she smiles sans makeup, barefoot and topless, according to Women's Wear Daily.

The photographer/designer told WWD at a May 22 private viewing of the “Gisele in BLK DNM” exhibition that he seeks to portray women as they are.

“I’m a massive feminist. I’m the one who thinks that women should take over completely. To portray women as who they are — I see it more like a documentary portrait. I’m anti-retouching and [anti-] plastic surgery. I think a woman is beautiful how she is,” Lindeberg told the magazine.

That’s easy when your subject is Bundchen, who was the world’s highest-paid model last year, according to Forbes magazine. The 32-year-old bombshell and mother of two is married to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and earned an estimated $45 million in 2011.

Beyonce, Jay-Z Top "Forbes'" List of World's Highest-Paid Celeb Couples

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Beyonce and Jay-Z are movin' on up.  When Forbes released its list of the world's highest-paid celebrity couples last year, the hip-hop power couple was the runner-up for the top spot.  This year, they've climbed to number one.

The magazine points out that though Beyonce put the brakes on her whirlwind schedule in 2011 to welcome into the world her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, the mommy still raked in dough during her maternity leave.  According to Forbes, Beyonce pulled in large sums from her old hits, and that's on top of the money she's made from her platinum-selling album 4.

Between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012, Forbes reports that Beyonce earned $40 million, thanks in part to her non-musical ventures, including a fragrance collection.

As for Jay-Z, he made millions as part of The Throne, which sold out arenas on a global tour.  He stacked slightly less dough than his wife, with Jay earning $38 million between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012.  Some of his money came from non-musical enterprises, including cosmetics company Carol's Daughter and ad firm Translation, according to Forbes.

Together, Beyonce and Jay-Z collected an annual income of $78 million.

Second on Forbes' list is supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her quarterback-husband, Tom Brady.  Combined, the duo pulled in $72 million between May of 2011 and May of 2012, thanks to her modeling work, his NFL salary, and their respective endorsement deals.

David and Victoria Beckham rank third with $54 million, ahead of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who raked in $45 million, and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, who collected $40 million.

Adriana Lima: Leave Gisele Bundchen Alone

John Parra/WireImage for Victoria's Secret(NEW YORK) -- Gisele Bundchen’s Victoria’s Secret buddies have her back.  While the supermodel and former VS Angel has been blasted for criticizing her husband’s Patriots teammates after their crushing Super Bowl loss, on Wednesday, Adriana Lima told ABC News, “I think we should leave the girl alone.”

Lima also talked about her Super Bowl ad at the lingerie line’s Valentine’s Day preview in New York. Asked whether starring in a commercial seen by more than 100 million people is more or less nerve-wracking than walking down a runway wearing next to nothing, Lima said, “None of that. I love my job, and the people that I get to work with are very professional. I really enjoy everything, both of them.”

Will we be seeing more of Lima on screen? “I hope so! Of course,” she said.

Gisele Bundchen Curses Tom Brady’s Super Bowl Loss

Rob Carr/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, hot off a Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants, may feel down – but his supermodel wife still has his back.

After the big game, Gisele Bundchen was confronted by hecklers at Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium. A video from the scene shows Bundchen walking toward an elevator as a man screams, “Eli [Manning, the Giants QB] owns your husband.”

Bundchen smiles before turning her back to the camera and saying to her group of friends and handlers: “My husband cannot f*****g throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time,” referring to the errors made on the part of the Patriots.

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen Escapes Speeding Ticket

Randy Brooke/FilmMagic(FOXBOROUGH, Mass) -- If you need to talk your way out of a speeding ticket, being a supermodel doesn’t hurt.

On Saturday Gisele Bundchen got off with a verbal warning after being pulled over for going 70 in a 55 mph zone, Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio said Tuesday.

Bundchen was driving along Route 6 on Cape Cod, about an hour and a half from Foxborough, Mass., where her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, played against the San Diego Chargers Sunday.

“He reminded her that the speed limit on the Cape is 55, not 65 as it is in other parts of the state,” Procopio told the Boston Herald.

Procopio told the Boston Globe Trooper Michael Hopper pulled over 25 drivers Saturday and gave verbal warnings to four other drivers who were cited for other traffic violations in addition to speeding.

“She was slightly over the speed limit. There was no other dangerous behavior. There were no lane violations, no swerving, no aggressive driving – just driving too fast,” he told The Globe.

Hopper reportedly saw two kids properly secured in the backseat but did not confirm whether or not one of them was her son.
