After 20 years as a model—and eight years as the highest-paid one in the world—Gisele Bundchen made her final catwalk appearance last night in her homeland. The 34-year-old says that after the Sao Paulo Fashion Week appearance, she plans to spend her time working on other projects and bringing up the two young children she has with NFL quarterback Tom Brady, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business," she wrote in an Instagram post with a picture of herself as a 14-year-old model. Brady was in the front row for his wife's last show, where she fought back tears during the final bow, the AP reports. (More Gisele Bundchen stories.)
