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.
