Gisele Bundchen is the highest-paid model on this planet. The hottest, one might say, in terms of earning power in the 2013-14 fiscal year, according to Forbes.
The 34-year-old Brazilian stunner made a reported $47 million this year. A staggering total, but here's an even more amazing fact to put it in perspective:
The 21 highest-paid models made a combined $142. Gisele single-handedly made half of what the next 20 made all together. All due to pics like these:
Kate Upton who? This marks the eighth year in a row that Gisele has been the highest-paid supermodel in the world, and by considerably wide margins.
Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima tied for second place behind Gisele, and each made $8 million. Even her husband doesn't make close to her salary.
Year in and year out, how does Gisele do it?
That's not a rhetorical question. Lucrative ad campaigns with Chanel, H&M, Carolina Herrera, plus lending her face to brands like Pantene, will get it done.
Other models who made the list, albeit well below the aforementioned Mrs. Tom Brady, were Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio and yes, Kate Upton.
It's okay, Kate. You're still doing okay, we imagine.
