Gisele Bündchen Tops World’s Highest-Paid Models List for 14th Straight Year
Even though Gisele Bündchen is officially retired from the runway, she once again took the top spot on Forbes‘s list of the world’s highest-paid models, and it wasn’t even close.
The Brazilian superstar and wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady came in at No. 1 with a cool $30.5 million payday for 2016, $20 million more than Victoria’s Secret angel Adriana Lima, who came in at No. 2 with $10.5 million. Gisele has now sat atop the rankings every year since 2002.
According to Forbes, the 36-year-old continues to earn the big bucks during retirement. Gisele has a number of high-profile deals with beauty companies like Chanel and Patene, as well as advertisement gigs with several partners in her home country of Brazil. She also has her own lingerie and skincare lines.
While Gisele beat out up-and-coming names like Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid (who came in at No. 3 and No. 5 respectively), she was only able to land the No. 99 spot on Forbes‘s rankings of the highest-paid overall celebrities. Brady earned the No. 52 spot on that list with his $45 million payday.
Any way you cut it, though, the Brady-Bündchen household is doing pretty well for themselves. No wonder why they can afford to live in Taylor Swift’s neighborhood.
