You could be excused for thinking that Gisele Bündchen’s wardrobe is a veritable gold mine of designer products, yet the reverse is actually true.
The supermodel from Brazil who rose to become one of the highest-paid models in the world enjoys unrivalled access to goods from the most exclusive brands in the world, therefore understanding efficient decluttering techniques is crucial. Herein lies the role of renowned organiser Marie Kondo.
Gisele Bündchen revealed in an interview with Vogue (opens in new tab) that she only keeps her favourite pieces, or as Marie Kondo would put it, the things that “spark joy.” The only items still in the model’s closet are an early pair of Vince jeans and a leather jacket, but her sisters end up with the rest of designer gifts.
People believe they need more things, but they don’t. Gisele declares. Start with the straightforward idea of asking yourself, “What makes my life possible?” as you wake up in the morning. Such a straightforward question, The sun, the water I drink, the food I eat, the air I breathe, and the ground I walk on. We might be able to take a little more care if we realise how important the Earth is to our survival and truly value all the treasures it has given us. The fashion sector is worth $1 trillion. We possess the tools. All we need to do is want to.
Gisele Bündchen declutters her home using Marie Kondo’s organising techniques, but the model claims that her love of order influences her attitude in ways that go beyond her home.
When asked about her biggest pet peeve, Gisele says that arranging is her “biggest vice” and that she “can’t take cluttered environments” in a clip from Vogue’s 73 Questions (opens in new tab).
Following her divorce from football player Tom Brady, Gisele Bündchen recently bought a lavish Florida home and a $1.3 million Florida cottage as she starts to diversify her real estate holdings. Although nothing is known about their interiors, we can assume that they are, above all else, immaculately ordered.
