Forbes magazine recently released the latest list of the world’s most highly paid models. Ranked 1st on the list of the world’s most highly paid models is legendary Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen with estimated earnings of $45 million United States Dollars over the past year. To make it into the ranks of the world’s top earning models, it is not enough to simply walk the high fashion runways of New York and Milan or sign on to big marketing campaigns. To make it into the rankings of the world’s most highly paid models these beauties that command the biggest paychecks in the modeling industry are brand names themselves. For example, Gisele Bündchen and German beauty Heidi Klum, the women topping the list again this year, have become fashion superstars around the world. The models on the list were ranked according to estimated earnings from May 2010 to May 2011.

There is no doubt that from Brazil to Milan, New York, and Paris, Gisele Bundchen is an unparalleled force within the fashion modeling industry. Gisele Bundchen remains, of the two financial giants of the industry (the other being Heidi Klum), capable of moving masses of product to the consumer. From fragrance to sandals, watches, high end clothing, and everything in between, Gisele Bundchen will most likely continue to earn millions upon millions in the next few years and is also believed to soon become the first model on planet earth to become a self made billionaire!

Since leaving Victoria’s Secret in 2007, Gisele Bündchen has gotten married to NFL superstar Tom Brady and become a mother, but she has yet to slow down. Gisele Bündchen remains the face of numerous campaigns and endorsement deals throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America. From H&M to Dior and Versace, Gisele Bundchen stands behind brands that represent both luxury and affordability. Her selling power is incredible: Gisele Bündchen’s endorsement of Pantene in Brazil was credited to helping increase sales of the brand by approximately 40% over the previous year. Gisele Bundchen’s most lucrative deals go beyond modeling as she earns a percentage of sales from the Ipanema flip flops bearing her name, which today rival Brazil’s well known Havaianas brand.
