Gisele Bundchen is world's highest paid model
Tue, 19 Jun 2012 9:24a.m.
Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen has topped Forbes' highest paid models list after earning a staggering US$45 million in a year.
The list, which covers models' earnings from May 2011 to May 2012, shows the catwalk star had a hugely lucrative 12 months thanks to bumper pay deals from Versace and Pantene. Bundchen, who is married to American footballer Tom Brady, also lends her name to several fashion products.
British model Kate Moss came a distant second - earning nearly US$10 million due to contracts with Topshop, Mango and Rimmel.
Russian stunner Natalia Vodianova, the face of Calvin Klein, earned US$8.6 million to come third in the list, while Victoria'sSecret model Adriana Lima landed fourth place with US$7.3 million.
Dutch beauty Doutzen Kroes rounded out the top five with estimated earnings of US$7 million.
Heidi Klum, a regular fixture on previous lists, was deemed more of a businesswoman than a model and removed from Forbes' calculations.
