The Brazilian beauty, Gisele Bundchen, 34, has once again topped the Forbes magazine’s annual list of highest-paid models for 2014, which estimates her pre-tax haul at $47 million.
The magazine calculated each model’s earnings from June 2013 to June 2014 taking into account income from cosmetics and fragrance deals, endorsements, advertising, and other ventures.
Tied for 2nd Place with $8 million (before taxes and fees) each were Doutzen Kroes (Dutch Victoria’s Secret model) and fellow Brazilian Victoria’s Secret’s longest-running Angel, Adriana Lima.
So, Gisele made nearly six times that of her closest rivals. All of the 21 models on the list made a combined $142 million.
Rounding out the top five with $7 million each were a couple of Kates. British model Kate Moss, American model and Sports Illustrated fave Kate Upton, ex-Angel Miranda Kerr and Liu Wen, “the first Chinese model to walk Victoria’s Secret runway,” formed a group earning $7 million each.
Brazil’s Alessandra Ambrosio and American Hilary Rhoda were next, with $5 million apiece.
