She's been named one of the most beautiful women in the world, but everyone knows that she's more than just a pretty face. Gisele Bundchen joins Forbes' highest paid celebrities list yet again, this time as the only model member. Anyone who knows how busy this woman is knows she totally deserves the paychecks. The magazine ranks the model as #46 on the list with her yearly income coming in at $44 million. It doesn't look like those rumors of her retirement and subsequent official end to her catwalk career earlier this year slow her down!
Gisele's career has been on an upward trajectory basically since she began modeling after being discovered in her home country of Brazil. She's walked for some of the greatest names in fashion including one of her most iconic jobs as a stunning Victoria's Secret angel. Gisele made a name for herself strutting her gorgeous legs down the cat walk, and she's been collecting the paychecks to prove it. Last year, it was reported that the former angel is making $128,000 every day!
While she may have officially retired from the runway, Bundchen can still be seen in print ads, and perhaps most notably, the stunner appears on the cover of Brazilian Vogue this past April completely nude and looking absolutely flawless. Then, almost immediately after her retirement, Bundchen made sure to let us know that even during retirement she's still smoking when she posted a gorgeous bikini instagram photo.
Regardless of what she's doing now, Bundchen has clearly earned her spot at the top of the super model food chain. With her talent and stunning good looks, there's no wonder she's made Forbes highest paid celebrities list. I mean, just look at some of her recent work!
