The queen of the runway is back, for one time only. Gisele Bündchen retired from the runway last year, but she's headed back to the place she essentially called home for the Summer 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

After all, she is a Brazilian native.

Women's Wear Daily reports that Tom Brady's wife will strut her stuff during the opening ceremony of the Games at Maracanã Stadium. The moment seemed to big for her to pass up.

Gisele's one-time runway walk comes in the same country that she retired in last year. Her final catwalk gig was at the Colcci show during São Paulo Fashion Week in April 2015.

At the time, she shared a throwback on Instagram of her 14-year-old self at her first gig.

"I am grateful that at 14, I was given the opportunity to start this journey," she said. "Today after 20 years in the industry, it is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business. #firstrunway #14yearsold."

Tom also posted a tribute to his wife at the same day, sharing a photo of her final walk on Facebook.

"Congratulations Love of my Life. You inspire me every day to be a better person. I am so proud of you and everything you have accomplished on the runway," he wrote. "I have never met someone with more of a will to succeed and determination to overcome any obstacle in the way. You never cease to amaze me. Nobody loves life more than you and your beauty runs much deeper than what the eye can see. I can't wait to see what's next. I love you. #GOAT #thebestisyettocome."

Her retirement has hardly affected her pocketbook. Last September, Forbes said Gisele was the highest-paid model of the year, taking home an astounding $44 million in a one-year time frame. Coming in second: Cara Delevingne and Adriana Lima, who each pulled in $9 million, almost five times less than Gisele.

Gisele, Forbes said, has made more money than any other model since 2002. When you're slinging $700 coffee table books and getting punchy with Under Armour, that helps with your bottom line, too.
