Talk about a super model! Forbes recently released its annual world’s highest-paid models list and Gisele Bundchen has claimed the number one spot for the seventh year in a row. Earning estimates are based on editorial shoots, independent licensing ventures, spokesperson gigs and contracts from beauty and fashion companies.
Earning $42 million from June 2012 to June 2013, the magazine credits Bundchen’s hefty paycheck to her acute business sense. She is currently a partner in Grendene, a the Brazilian footwear company, whose shares have more than doubled since 2012.
The wife of Tom Brady also earns millions from her eco-friendly cosmetics company, Sejaa, and multi-year contracts with companies like Pantene, Oral-B and Sky HDTV.
