As Derek Blasberg tweeted, "Gisele closing Alexander Wang's show reminded everyone why she's a professional supermodel and not a Super Bowl commentator. Looked AMAZING."

The Brazilian model returned to what she knows best, surprising the crowd at Fashion Week by closing Alexander Wang's Fall 2012 show.

Gisele was just one of several supers to hit the dark, mirrored runway: Shalom Harlow and Karolina Kurkova also joined the superstar finale.

Just like her unexpected appearance closing Givenchy's Spring 2012 show last season, Gisele's runway turn was the surprise of the night, especially since Wang is known as the purveyor of all that is young, hip and new.

But the presence of the model veterans at Saturday night's show might have been a signal of Wang's maturity and seasoned status. As Style.com noted, the designer plans to open 14 stores in China in the the next year, seriously expanding his international retail presence.

That's no rookie move.

Check out Gisele's triumphant post-Super Bowl runway return and the rest of Wang's dark, moody show.
