Gisele Bündchen to be Vogue China's first cover girl


Vogue magazine's Mainland China edition, which has been 'about to launch' for about two years, now seems set to actually publish its first issue in September this year, if industry gossip and media reports are to be believed.

According to a fashion column by Mônica Bergamo in the Brazilian magazine "Folha de S. Paulo", Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bündchen will soon be on her way to China for a photo shoot for the cover of Vogue China's launch issue.
