Gisele Bundchen came out of retirement on Friday night at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics opening ceremony, and all eyes were on the former supermodel, with some fans on social media joking that her sport was "walking." They're not kidding! Gis strutted down a catwalk at the Maracana Stadium in a metallic sequinned gown by Alexandre Herchovitch as "Girl from Ipanema" played, and after that she joined the crowd to watch the show -- and dance!
"The Olympics symbolize so much for our global community," she wrote in a heartfelt post on Instagram. "The unity that is felt is amazing and gives me goose bumps. There is so much dedication and love the athlete’s themselves pour into their chosen sport. Each athlete has given their all to achieve lifelong dreams and their journeys have led them here to Rio to compete for their countries with pride. The energy is electric and contagious. I am so happy to be part of the opening ceremony in my homeland and to celebrate these bright stars from around the globe. I truly believe that each Olympian lights the path for the next young child dreaming of being at the Olympics and encourages the practice of sports. As I walk down tonight on the longest runway I have ever been on I will be sending out all my love and positivity. I am humbled and honored to be part of this historic moment for my country. I believe that the unity is the key to creating a world filled with kindness, gratitude, peace, and love.❤️🙏🏼🇧🇷🌎"
Aww, loves it!
