Models earn more money than many celebrities. Gisele Bundchen earned an estimated $45 million last year, making her once again the world’s top-earning model. She has had contracts with Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and this year, H&M, allowing her to make more money than any other model since 2004.
The Brazilian beauty is married to Patriots QB, Tom Brady and has a son, Benjamin, who is 1 year old. She is considered one of the most beautiful models, and her body, even after baby is perfect! Edward Razek, Limited Brands’ chief marketing officer who worked with Gisele during her Victoria’s Secret career said: She’s an international icon who can also move products from shampoo to couture.
On Thursday, Forbes magazine unveiled its ranking of the top 10 earning female models in the world, making a total of $112 million in the last twelve months which was up 30 percent from the previous year.
