THG is counting down the 100 Hottest Bikini Bodies of 2012!
From now until the end of the year, we'll be paying tribute to the hottest of the hot with bikini photos galore. The competition is guaranteed to be sweltering.
Keeping the heat rising at #17: Gisele Bundchen!
Most recently, Minka Kelly bikini photos made THG's hottest list ever.
Now, it's one of the world's most well-known, successful models.
For good reason. Gisele Bundchen is very, very far from unattractive.
The Brazilian beauty, 32, helped put Victoria's Secret on the map for years, having been credited with ending the "heroin chic" era of modeling.
Standing 5'11" with piercing blue eyes and a body that will stop traffic, Gisele needs no introduction (or last name) in her native country and beyond.
From 2004-present, she has been the highest-paid model in the world, and she's the 16th richest woman in the entertainment industry overall.
Basically, Tom Brady got himself a good one. She's the mother of his son Benjamin and is pregnant with their second child; the couple married in 2009.
