World's highest-paid model will retire from the runway in April. Here's looking at some of her most memorable catwalk moments.

We love Gisele Bundchen. But you probably knew that!

The 34-year-old Brazilian supermodel who also happens to be the highest paid in the business -- she made some $47 million last year according to Forbes -- is now ready to take a bow from the catwalk.

Bundchen will end her spectacular runway career that spanned 20 long years in her home country at the Sao Paolo Fashion Week next month.

It seems apt then to look back at some of her most memorable catwalk moments in the last two decades.

We start with her stunning appearance at the 2006 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that was also her last for the brand.

Bundchen who is probably the most recognisable of the VS Angels is seen here during the 2000 show, her first as an Angel.

Though not a 'runway moment', this shot of Gisele Bundchen showing off a $15 million Jewelled Bra has got to be, without a doubt, the most important one in her career.

The stunner in her home turf! Gisele is seen here at the Sao Paulo Fashion Week Summer 2014/2015. This is where she will take the final bow this year.

The thing is if you look so freaking stunning even in a pair of tattered jeans and a top during a rehearsal, you really are in the right business.

So thank you Gisele Bundchen for all these moments!

You will be missed!
