Gisele Bundchen Is STILL The World's Highest Earning Model, Says Forbes

Making mega bucks from being drop dead gorgeous - SUPERMODEL gorgeous - is a pretty good gig if you can get it. Obviously beautiful genes are key here but luckily for Gisele Bundchen she's got them, and then some, and then some more.

Not only is the Brazilian beauty the new face for H&M's A/W campaign - but according to Forbes she has been ranked the world's highest earning model for the SEVENTH year in a row. We're talking $42 million kind of wealth for 2013.

Former Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr came in at second highest earner - but she wasn't even close to Gisele. Forbes has estimated Kerr's wealth in 2013 to be $7.2 million (seven times less than Bundchen!) thanks to new contracts with Mango, Lipton and David Jones.


The secret to Gisele's success? She's a total business woman. She's got her own lingerie line (naturally), an eco friendly skincare brand Sejaa, accessories lines, the ever-popular Ipanema flipflop collection and then the model contracts. Holy moly.

Take a look at her latest look in these official H&M campaign photos - there's a reason Gisele is THE world's highest paid model...
