In a move that can only be described as "baller," iconic supermodel Gisele Bundchen bailed on Monday night's Met Gala, instead heading to Cuba for some pre-Chanel show sightseeing. And luckily for us, she documented it all on Instagram! Here she is in a wee yellow taxi seemingly designed by Fisher-Price:

Anyone needs a ride? Alguém precisa de uma carona? #cocotaxi #cuba

Of course, all this led up to Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel cruise presentation in Havana, to which Gisele showed up in a ruffled red knit top and skirt set, along with a kicky navy beret. Very Carmen-Sandiego-goes-on-vacation, wouldn't you say?
