The day after Christmas, the biggest gift of all knocked on 15-year-old Karina Moreira’s front door. Supermodel and fellow Brazilian Gisele Bundchen stopped by.

“I was just standing there like, oh my God, and I just gave her a hug, an automatic hug, and it was really nice,” said Karina Moreira, who is battling bone cancer.

Karina and Bundchen met once before, two years ago at a Dana Farber event. At the time, Karina was undergoing chemotherapy treatments. She was in remission, but the cancer returned and she started chemotherapy again.

Like Bundchen, the teen is a fashion aficionado. She has a blog — “Chic by Karina” — with plenty of how-to videos.

Thursday morning, Karina and Bundchen talked fashion and shared makeup tips.
