SHE shunned Sydney for Melbourne, and the sun came out to shine on Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen on her arrival yesterday.
The $37 million clothes horse flew in from Los Angeles to be greeted by a paparazzi pack.
She was protected by burly security guards, including a phalanx of Australian Federal Police officers.
The stunner showed she’d done her research for her first visit Down Under, arriving at the airport in a grungy AC/DC T-shirt.
Both Healesville and Melbourne zoos were on stand-by in case Bundchen wanted to visit, but the sanctuary won the day.
Earlier, the model was holed up in her five-star hotel, reportedly to watch her US football star boyfriend Tom Brady play his NFL game on the telly.
Tonight, she’ll launch her Ipanema footwear collection, with proceeds going to a campaign to preserve waterways in the Amazon Basin.
The thongs will be on sale at Novo outlets and Myer.
