  • Gisele Bündchen returns to modeling after her divorce from Tom Brady
  • A brand expert said Bündchen having a career comeback post-split is not surprising
  • Bündchen's potential to return to stardom "never got destroyed," according to Eric Schiffer

Gisele Bündchen is now more focused on herself than ever before, according to a brand expert, as she makes a return to modeling following her divorce from Tom Brady.

Months after announcing their divorce in October 2022, Brady retired from the NFL for good. On the other hand, Bündchen, who was once the world's highest-paid supermodel, starred in a new campaign for Louis Vuitton and was spotted posing on the beach for what seemed to be a magazine photoshoot.

"The probability of Tom Brady's retirement this season is something Gisele highly considered," brand expert Eric Schiffer told Fox News Digital. "It happened because she feels renewed and empowered to focus more on herself and what makes her happy."

He added, "Having a comeback career post-divorce is something anyone who has gone through an excruciating soul-crushing split relates."

The Brazilian supermodel put her career on hold to focus on her family and played more of a supporting role to Brady's career in the past few years, so her desire to be back in front of the camera post-divorce was not surprising, according to the expert.

"This seismic shift is in her best interest if it makes her happy, feel powerful, and aligns with her vision of herself at this stage of Gisele's life," Schiffer explained. "Gisele's potential to return to stardom never got destroyed, and so many are pulling for her."

Beauty expert and Upkeep app founder Tiffany Demers told Fox News Digital that Bündchen is a "great example" that breakups should not stop anyone from enjoying their life to the fullest and expressing their unique style.

"Post-breakup glow-ups used to include a new hair color and cut, but as Gisele is proving, glow-ups have a whole new meaning," Demers said.

Last month, Bündchen was spotted going braless as she struck poses in a see-through black midi dress with a wide buckled belt and cheeky thong during a photo shoot on a crowded beach in Miami.

Page Six also obtained photos of Brady's ex rocking a plunging purple Versace swimsuit with long sleeves and a dramatic cowl hood for a photo shoot earlier that week. In one shot, she can be seen seductively looking up at the sun, while another picture captured her posing on her knees while giving the camera a fierce look.

Last year, rumors circulated for months that Bundchen was not thrilled when Brady walked back his decision to quit football and returned to the NFL for his 23rd season.

The pair never addressed the rumors of marital strife before announcing on Oct. 28, 2022, that they finalized their divorce after 13 years of marriage.

They share daughter Vivian Lake, 10, and son Benjamin Rein, 13. Brady is also dad to son John "Jack" Edward, 15, with ex Bridget Moynahan.

On Feb. 1, exactly a year after his first retirement announcement, Brady announced via video on social media that he decided to retire from the NFL for good.

Bundchen left a supportive message for her ex-husband in the comments section of his video. "Wishing you only wonderful things in this new chapter of your life," the model wrote alongside a prayer emoji.
