In the 1990s, Bündchen was the first in a wave of Brazilian models to achieve international success. In Vogue's 1999 article "The Return of the Sexy Model," Bündchen was credited with ending the heroin chic era of modeling. Bündchen was a Victoria's Secret Angel from 2000–2007. Bündchen has been credited with pioneering the "horse walk," a stomping movement created by a model lifting his or her knees high and kicking his or her feet to step. In a 2007 Vogue interview, Claudia Schiffer called Bündchen the only remaining supermodel.
