Gisele Bundchen Captivates on Vogue UK Cover

Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen teams up with Mario Testino for the December 2011 issue of Vogue UK. Styled by Lucinda Chambers, Gisele is rocking some crazy colorful tights with Louboutin skyhigh heels. Highlights from her interview after the jump:

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.”

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.”
