Gisele Bündchen’s fraternal twin sister, Patricia Bündchen, joined the model for a rare appearance at the Luz Alliance Gala to benefit the Brazil Foundation.
The pair, both 42, were all smiles as they posed with their arms wrapped around each other on the red carpet on Saturday night.
For the special outing, Gisele wore a simple one-shoulder white dress, which she paired with green heels while styling her hair in loose waves.
As for her twin, she sported a floral dress with her hair combed over her shoulders. She accessorized the look with minimal gold jewelry.
The posh Miami soiree – attended by stars like Karlie Kloss – raised nearly $1 million for reforestation efforts in the sisters’ homeland.
Speaking to PEOPLE about the affair, Gisele said: ‘It was my first gala and I couldn’t have done it without my sister Pati. We are very close, as you know, we are twins.
She continued to gush over her sister, saying the two had each other’s backs, before adding, “We trust each other and we always want the best for each other and that’s priceless.”
In fact, Gisèle relies on more than her twin. She dubbed the rest of her sisters as her “best friends even though sometimes we don’t agree”.
She added: “Family is what gives us our foundation, they are our greatest teachers and they help us become who we are.”
In addition to Patricia, who works as business manager for Gisele in Brazil, the former Victoria’s Secret angel is the sister of Raquel, 48, Graziela, 46, Gabriela, 40 and Rafaela, 34.
“Any time we can spend time with family is just awesome, especially to see the beautiful bond the kids have with their cousins as they all grow up is priceless,” Gisele, who shares Benjamin, 13, and Vivian, 10, with Brady, 45, explained.

“I’m excited to be visiting (Brazil) soon to meet my sister Fafi’s new baby and my sister Gabi is expecting this summer,” she added. “It’s such a blessing.”
Although she rarely posts pictures with her sisters, the proud mom paid tribute to her twin on their 40th birthday in July 2020.
“Today Pati and I are celebrating four decades of life on this amazing planet! How lucky I was to be born with my twin and best friend! she captioned an Instagram post featuring several throwback snaps of the duo “I’m so grateful to everyone who has been part of my journey.”
Gisele specifically gave a shoutout to ex Tom Brady, saying, “My husband, my family (especially my loving children!), my friends and so many others who I’ve never met but who have supported me all these years. ”
As previously reported, Gisele parted ways with the star quarterback last year following an “epic fight” over his shock decision to “retire” from the NFL.
The model and the seven-time Super Bowl champion have since found their footing as friendly co-parents who praise each other on social media.
Brady, 45, finally hung up his jersey for good last February.
