Gisele Bundchen at Vogue fashion shoot on St. Barths

Visitors to St. Barths during Thanksgiving shared the island with supermodel Gisele Bundchen who was engaged in a week-long photo-shoot for French fashion magazine Vogue. Each day, the Vogue team set up in and around the historic harbor town of Gustavia, capturing Gisele in fashionable vests, blouses and short shorts against the backdrop of cobblestone streets and ancient stone buildings.

By night, Gisele Bundchen relaxed with the rest of the Vogue team of photographers and stylists in a private gated compound of luxurious villas provided by WIMCO Villas.

There were no sightings of her famous husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who was 2,000 miles away dismantling the Detroit Lions 45-24 on Thanksgiving day. Perhaps Gisele will persuade Mr. Brady to sneak away to St. Barths for a quiet vacation once the NFL season ends.

The photos from this fashion shoot will appear in the March and April issues of Vogue France and on their website
