Gisele Bündchen has replaced Kate Moss as the face of shoe label STUART WEITZMAN.

The Brazilian beauty appears in adverts for the autumn/winter 2014 season which were shot by celebrated fashion photographer Mario Testino and show the 33-year-old model topless, covering her modesty with her arms while wearing white trousers and black ankle boots.

According to the Daily Telegraph newspaper, Weitzman said: ''With her lithe physique, bronzed skin and tousled golden locks, Gisele personifies the confidence, empowerment, beauty and ease women feel the moment they slip into their Stuart Weitzman shoes.''

Gisele, who is also the face of H&M and the soon-to-be spokesmodel for Chanel No. 5 perfume, will appear in Testino's black and white images on huge billboards from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, as well as featuring in a number of glossy magazines.

The likes of January Jones, Solange Knowles and the Duchess of Cambridge are fans of Weitzman's shoes and before Kate Moss, Russian beauty Natalia Vodianova was hired to model for the brand.

Meanwhile, Gisele has also been asked to hand out the FIFA World Cup 2014 trophy, after choosing to stand in for Brazil's president Dilma Rousseff, who has been the target of abuse due to the huge expense incurred from hosting the tournament, to present the golden prize to the winning team at the official closing ceremony on July 13.
