Gisele Bündchen top-earning model

Brazilian Gisele Bündchen is the world’s top supermodel with estimated earnings of $35 million during the past year, according to a new ranking recently released.

She more than doubled the estimated $14 million earned by Heidi Klum, who came in at No. 2 on the list by Forbes.com, followed by Kate Moss with $7.5 million, Adriana Lima with $7 million and Doutzen Kroes with $6 million.

Forbes.com said that although Bündchen finished her lucrative Victoria’s Secret contract last year, she continues to juggle 20 other modelling jobs.

“The 27-year-old continues to bag new contracts, noticeably with Pantene and a cosmetics giant yet to be named. Her face graces ads for Disney, Nivea, Vogue eyewear and Aquascutum, the U.K.-based luxury line,” Forbes.com said.

“Her line of Grendene sandals, Ipanema by Gisele, banks her about $6 million a year. And her romance with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady keeps her in the tabloids,” it added.

The website said that while Klum is still a Victoria’s Secret model, she is “more of a media and retail mogul” these days with her U.S. Project Runway and Germany’s Next Top Model hosting duties.
