The caption read: "Almost time! Super excited for the release of my book tomorrow!"

Born in the Brazilian countryside, Gisele came from humble roots. The statuesque beauty, made her breakthrough at 18 when she featured in Alexander McQueen's Rain show. The designer praised "The Body" for her ability to walk in towering heels on a slippery runway.

The same year, Gisele secured her first British Vogue cover, and swiftly became the most in-demand cover girl of her generation. She has since appeared on more than 1,000 covers around the globe, in approximately 450 fashion shows, and in multinational campaigns for the biggest fashion and beauty brands. So it's no wonder the book has been such a success.
