Gisele Bündchen attended her first Met Gala red carpet as a single woman in 15 years — grinning from ear to ear. The Brazilian supermodel wore a gorgeous white Chanel gown with vertical stripes and huge feathers on Monday night (May 1). She used to attend the event with her ex-husband, pro-NFL footballer Tom Brady. The couple divorced last year after 13 years of marriage.
Since their divorce, Gisele seemed to be okay and has even offered well-wishes to her former partner. A source close to Bündchen tells People, “She’s back to herself. She’s good, she’s happy, she’s doing lots of good things. She’s back to work.”
They added that “[when she was with Tom,] she was just focusing on being a mom. With all their moves [because he changed teams] and everything, you have to be in mom mode. She’s really happy just enjoying her new chapter.”
Of her Met Gala dress choice, the mom of two said she wore it in a 2006 or 2007 editorial with the late Karl Lagerfeld. The event’s theme was modeled after the iconic designer. This was before she and Brady started dating, which was in January 2007. She said, “I wanted to wear something that reminded me of him and experienced with him. I wore the same dress. So when I was picking a dress, I was like, ‘Which dress is going to be the dress?’ And I thought this is the one!”
