Gisele Bundchen Is No Angel as She Turns Victoria’s Secret Rival

Victoria’s Secret will face off with one of its most famous Angels, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, when its first store opens in Brazil later this year.

The Brazilian model -- who strutted the runway as a Victoria’s Secret Angel in its annual fashion show until 2007 -- is teaming up with closely held lingerie maker Hope to open the first Gisele Bundchen Intimates store in Sao Paulo in May. That same month, a Victoria’s Secret-branded shop is set to begin selling bras and panties in Brazil.
