Gisele Bündchen is celebrating her 20-year career in the fashion industry by publishing a limited edition coffee table book worth $700.

German publisher Taschen Books said that the 536-page hardcover will showcase more than 300 photos of the Brazilian supermodel shot by celebrated photographers like Irving Penn, David LaChapelle, and Juergen Teller, highlighting her career that was jumpstarted when she was just 14 years of age, Us Weekly wrote. Bündchen, 35, designed and curated the book alongside Giovanni Bianco, and will feature her nude photograph shot by Penn in the cover, Fox News Latino wrote.

Accompanying the snapshots are tributes from Bündchen's closest friends and family, Fox News Latino added. The former Victoria's Secret star will also personally sign all 1,000 printed copies of the book.

The bombshell is Forbes' highest paid supermodel since 2002, beating the likes of other famous models like Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, and Karlie Kloss, Us Weekly reported.

Forbes wrote that Bündchen earned $47 million in 2014 for her lucrative deals with esteemed brands such as H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Oral-B, and Pantene hair products. She also designs jelly sandals for Brazilian shoe company Grendene and has a lingerie line for Hope named Gisele Bündchen Intimates.

The wife of NFL player Tom Brady serves as the Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Environment Programme and is one of the board of directors for Rainforest Alliance, a non-profit organization promoting biodiversity conservation and sustainability, Forbes added.

Last June, Bündchen showed off her bum in Stuart Weitzman's Fall 2015 advertising campaign for the company's "ALLLEGS" boots," according to another report from Us Weekly. She also starred in the designer's Fall 2015 and Spring 2015 photo and video campaigns.

"I could not have picked a better pair of legs than Gisele's to show off such a sexy boot. She defines the term ALLLEGS (aka "all legs"), and inspired its name," Weitzman said in a statement, as quoted by Us Weekly.

In May, Bündchen posed naked for Vogue Brazil's 40th anniversary issue, which also honors her 20-year anniversary in the fashion business.

The supermodel retired from the catwalk last April, marking her last runway appearance for esteemed brand Colcci at Brazil's São Paulo Fashion Week. When asked why she quit the catwalk, Bündchen said that she has learned to listen to her body, and that it "asked her to stop," Yahoo! News.

"Automatically my body tells me if what I do is worth it, and it asked to stop. I respect my body, it's a privilege to be able to stop runway work," she told the Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo, Yahoo! News quoted.
