Gisele Bundchen for Vogue UK December 2011

Gisele Bundchen is Vogue UK's cover girl for the December 2011 issue. Photographed by Mario Testino and styled by Lucinda Chambers, Gisele rocks some mighty colorful outfits.

On her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady: “Oh, Tom. He’s such a gentle giant. I’m so proud of him. When I go to watch him play, I’m like this big cheerleader, jumping up and down for him. I was born such a passionate person. I don’t know if that’s my blessing or my curse!”

On taking care of herself: “People think if you look after yourself you’re being selfish, you know. But what Tom taught me - and he is a living example of this - is that in order to be your best, you have to honor your own needs first. If I honor my needs first, I will be the best wife, the best mom, the best sister, the best friend. I have to come first, because then everyone benefits.”

On her love of meat: “C’mon, I’m Brazilian! But I also love animals. So what I find really helpful - you might think I’m crazy - is that before I eat any meat I always take one second of silence to put my hands over it and bless it and be grateful at least that it was a life.”
On the importance of family: “Family for me, is my base. I’m so grateful for that…Every year we have a family holiday, all of us together – my sisters, my parents, my sisters’ husbands and children. It’s kind of a sacred ritual.”
