SHE'S the multi-million-dollar supermodel who leaves millions of fans worldwide weak at the knees with her raunchy lingerie shoots.
But Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen has failed to impress her Australian-based godmother.
She's launched a campaign against her famous relative's risque advertisements, claiming they degrade women.
E l i z a b e t h N o n n e n-m a c h e r, 51, who campaigns on the Gold Coast against child sexual abuse, has launched an online petition against the model's Hope lingerie commercials.
Ms Nonnenmacher says she's spoken out to fight for women's rights. Until now she has never publicly revealed her family link with the world's highest paid model.
Bundchen is one of the richest women in the entertainment industry with an estimated $70 million fortune.
"There is an image portrayed of Brazilian women, we are easy to take to bed, we prostitute ourselves too easily, we are sex objects, this is not true," she told The Sunday Mail.
"My goddaughter unfortunately is helping encourage these views."
In the Brazilian advertisements, Bundchen removes her clothes in a bid to distract her husband from financial bad news.
The Brazilian Women's Rights Secretariat was last month unsuccessful in having the "sexist" ads banned.
Ms Nonnenmacher has since written seeking an appeal of the decision by the Brazilian advertising agency to allow the advertisements to be screened.
Ms Nonnenmacher is the models' godmother and a cousin, her father being older brother to Gisele's mum.
She admits the pair have a strained relationship.
The university-educated professional, who holds Australian citizenship, cherishes mementos like a card from 1994 where Bundchen wrote:
"A big special kiss from your goddaughter, who adores you."
They were last photographed in 1995, happily chatting before Ms Nonnenmacher left for Australia and Bundchen to New York.
"I'm not doing this for revenge," Ms Nonnenmacher said. "She is stepping into my field where I'm campaigning."
