Gisele Bündchen Is Highest-Paid Model

The Brazilian supermodel tops Forbes magazine’s annual list

They’re beautiful. They’re skinny. And they’re very, very rich.

Yes, the women who top Forbes magazine’s latest list of the highest-paid models have us just a tad envious.

In the number-one spot and way ahead of the rest of the pack: Gisele Bündchen, who earned an estimated $45 million from May 1, 2011, to May 1, 2012. And she gets to go home to Tom Brady at night.

Following Bündchen’s fashionable heels are Kate Moss ($9.2 million), Natalia Vodianova ($8.6 million), Adriana Lima ($7.3 million), Doutzen Kroes ($6.9 million), Alessandra Ambrosio ($6.6 million), Miranda Kerr ($4 million), Lara Stone ($3.8 million), Carolyn Murphy ($3.5 million) and Candice Swanepoel ($3.1 million).

It’s an elite group for sure.

“In the entire history of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, 140 separate women have walked that runway,” Limited Brands CMO Ed Razek tells Forbes. “There are seven billion people on the planet. That makes each of them not one in a million, not one in five million, not one in 10 million. That literally makes them one in 50 million humans.”

OK, OK, make that hugely envious.
