Brazilian bombshell Gisele Bundchen topped the list (yet again) of the World’s Highest Paid Models, as reported by Forbes magazine. The Victoria’s Secret ‘Angel’, 34, made a staggering $47 million last year, $16 million more than her NFL quarterback husband Tom Brady.
A mother of two (I know, we can’t believe it either) Bundchen has lucrative contracts with fashion retailer H&M, French fashion house Chanel, fashion label Carolina Herrera and a host of others, all of which contributed to her securing the No. 1 spot.
According to Forbes, Mrs. Tom Brady who has more than 2.7 million followers on Instagram doesn’t get out of bed for less than $128,000-a-day. She’s set a new standard for the modeling industry, earning nearly six-times more than her closest rivals on the list Dutch model Doutzen Kroes and fellow Brazilian model Adriana Lima.
Other names listed on Forbes roster included: Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr, Kate Upton, Alessandra Ambrosio, Natalia Vodianova and Liu Wen. The list also saw the inclusion of several newcomers including: Jourdan Dunn, Cara Delevingne and American-born 22-year-old Karlie Kloss.
Figures quoted on E Online, stated that the 21 models on the Highest Paid Models List earned a combined total of $142 million last year. And for the eighth consecutive year running, Gisele came out on top!
