Gisele Bundchen was not heading to prayer when she donned a traditional Muslim burqa while in Paris.
The New York Post reported the supermodel and her younger sister covered themselves head-to-toe in burqas so they could enter Paris’ International Clinique de Parc Monceau so Bunchen could get work done on her boobs and eyes.
A source told the Post that the 35-year-old Brazilian beauty was concerned her breasts were sagging after having two children, so she gifted herself the surgery as a birthday present and post-catwalk retirement.
The dead giveaway that it was not a Muslim woman underneath the burqa was Bundchen’s sandals, the Post reported. Muslim women are forbidden from wearing open-toed shoes.
According to the Post, Bundchen and her sister Rafaela were picked up by the model’s longtime chauffeur at the Bristol Hotel and driven to the clinic earlier this month. Photos accompanying the report showed the Brazilian beauty with her driver before putting on the burqa and one after she put it on.
Sources said Bundchen and her sister were picked up after the surgeries and then traveled to the exclusive Les Sources de Caudalie spa to recover before leaving Paris five days later.
On Friday, the Bundchen sisters were photographed at Charles de Gaulle Airport heading back to the United States – sans the burqa, which has actually banned in France since 2010.
Bundchen, who had vowed never to undergo plastic surgery, has not commented on the reports.
