It's good to be Gisele Bundchen, Forbes' top-paid models list confirms - LA Times

Talk about being worth her weight in gold! Try plutonium! The Brazilian supermodel, 34, has topped the financial magazine’s annual list for the eighth year in a row by earning an estimated $47 million. That’s a $5-million increase from last year’s calculation and a stunning $129,000 a day in earning.

Gisele, who out-earned her husband Tom Brady as well as all other models, has cash rolling in from contracts with H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Pantene hair products and Oral-B in Brazil. She also dabbles in design, getting a nice sum from her work for cobbler Grendene and her designs for Hope lingerie, which launched Gisele Bundchen Intimates.

The scary thing is that this year’s second-place models earned only 17% of what Bundchen did! Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes, who are both still full-time Victoria’s Secret Angels, tied for second place. While their $8-million figures are nothing to scoff it, it’s an unfair world if you’re not Gisele.
