Gisele Bündchen is beautiful woman on top…
The 35-year-old Brazilian supermodel and entrepreneur tops Forbes‘ annual list of the highest paid models of 2015.
With an income of $44 million dollars, Bündchen’s salary is a league ahead of Cara Delevingne‘s income, which at $9 million has them tied for the second spot.
Bündchen’s earnings are slightly smaller than the $47 million she earned last year. She’s been atop the rankings since 2002.
The versatile Brazilian beauty continues to clock lucrative beauty and fragrance contracts with Chanel and Carolina Herrera, supplementing those money makers with prestigious high fashion campaigns for Emilio Pucci and Balenciaga. Gisele’s Under Armour advertisement, which pictured her attacking a punch bag while social media commentary blared in the background, was perhaps the most impactful this year. Gisele has turned her name into a brand: She gets a cut of sales from the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grendene, while her line of Hope lingerie — Gisele Bündchen Intimates — also plumps up her paycheck.
But Bündchen isn’t the only Latina to make this year’s list…
Adriana Lima comes in at No. 3 on this year’s list, with a reported earnings of $9 million.
Joan Smalls comes in at No. 6, with a reported earnings report of $5.5 million.
Alessandra Ambrosio comes in at No. 8, with a reported earnings report of $5 million.
