Gisele Bundchen, the highest paid supermodel in fashion, earns about $44 million a year, according to Forbes. Between endorsements, books, fragrances and being Tom Brady‘s wife, Bundchen really is a “super-model” for hardworking women—not to mention she’s had two children and still has abs. Despite announcing her retirement from the runway so she can spend more time with her family, Bundchen is still very popular and involved in the industry. And her net worth of about $360 million, estimated by Celebrity Net Worth, proves she truly is the highest- paid and highest-regarded supermodel.
Here’s what you need to know about Bundchen’s money:
1. She Makes About $128,000 Per Day Largely From Ad Campaigns
Louis Vuitton, H&M, Balenciaga, Chanel, Carolina Herrera are just a few endorsements Bundchen has had. Whether she’s doing commercials or appearing in magazine ads, she is the face of these brands and is surely raking in the cash.
In 2015 alone it is estimated she has accumulated $47 million, according to the Daily Mail.
Gisele claims modelling wasn’t always a dream of hers, it just kind of happened, according to an interview with Vanity Fair in 2004.
Some people start modelling because they want to be models and they want the parties and the recognition, and then there are people like me. I come from a simple family, and for me, getting into modelling was a chance to make money and create a business.
2. Her $700 Book Sold Out The Day Before it Was Released
A hard cover book published by German publisher Taschen commemorates Bundchen’s 20 years in the modeling industry through photos and personal insights from Bundchen. This 500-page book containing about 300 photos of Bundchen was priced at $700 with only a limited stock on 1,000 copies available, all signed by Bundchen.
On her Instagram, Gisele claims “100% of proceeds are going to a charity near to my heart,” although she does not specify which charity this is.
This coffee-table book, Gisele, sold out this past Thursday, the day before it was supposed to be released.
She wrote on Instagram, “Gratitude for all the love I received from everyone at the launch of my book today. Thank you for being there for me at this very special moment.”
3. She’s Married to Tom Brady Who Has a Net Worth of $120 million
Both Brady and Bundchen are big names in their own fields, but put them together and you have a power couple with a power income. Brady’s estimated net worth is $120 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
The Patriots quarterback with four Super Bowl wins under his belt has been married to Bundchen since 2009. They have two children together, Benjamin, 5, and Vivian, 2.
4. Her Contract With Victoria’s Secret Was a Record- Breaking $25 Million
Bundchen was with Victoria’s Secret from 2000 to 2007 and the Brazilian model, who has a fraternal twin sister, had a record-breaking $25 million contract with the company.
In 2000, she modeled the Victoria’s Secret Red Hot Fantasy Bra, which was valued at $15 million—and set the record for the most expensive lingerie ever created, according to OK! Magazine.
She is said to be dedicated and competitive, reportedly walking 30 shows in a season during her heyday, according to Independent.
5. She Has Her Own Line of Intimates
