Bundchen secretly visits Plastic surgeon for eye and breast operation wearing a Muslim Burqa during Ramadan.

We might have another Deflategate on our hands, but this time in France… Not involving Tom Brady, but instead his wife Gisele Bundchen.

Not deflated footballs, but Gisele’s breasts which were not the same after mothering two children. But the plastic surgery the 35-year-old traveled to France to get is not the controversy, reports Page Six

It is the fact that she covered her face with a burqa in an attempt to sneak into Paris’ International Clinique du Parc Monceau during Ramadan with her sister for the breast augmentation as well as some work around her eyes.

The problem is that there may be no obvious public religious displays covering the face in France, which the burqa clearly is.

Another problem was that Bundchen wore open-toed shoes, a no-no for Muslim women in public, so it was easy to pick her out in the streets of Paris. 

Folks in France are outraged by Bundchen’s actions on a few different levels. First of all, she said she would never undergo plastic surgery, so the trip into their country, in disguise, was seen as an act of hypocrisy. 

Furthermore, to use the burqa in such a fashion during the holy month of Ramadan was also seen as sacrilegious by some.

Others just thought she was stupid considering wearing the banned headwear certainly drew attention to her. “A cap and a scarf would have been less conspicuous,” quipped one Parisian.
