Gisele Bündchen has once again been named the world's top supermodel for the second year in a row, with earnings of more than $35 million in the past year. The Brazilian model outearned #2 Heidi Klum ($14 mil) by more than double on the list compiled by Forbes.com.
Bündchen, 27, managed to rake in $35 million last year despite having terminated a lucrative contract with Victoria's Secret last May. In fact, she earned $2 million more than she did in 2006.
But the girl friend of football superstar Tom Brady is more than just looks- she's also known for her business savvy. Contributing to her 2007 earnings is the fact that she insists on having her contracts paid in Euros, rather than the failing US dollar.
Kate Moss dropped a spot on the list to #3, and Australian model Miranda Kerr (Orlando Bloom's girlfriend) is a new entry this year at #10.
Here is the list of the top ten earning supermodels in the world:
1. Gisele Bundchen, $35 million
2. Heidi Klum, $14 million
3. Kate Moss, $7.5 million
4. Adriana Lima, $7 million
5. Doutzen Kroes, $6 million
6. Karolina Kurkova, $5 million
7. Natalia Vodianova, $4.8 million
8. Carolyn Murphy, $4.5 million
9. Daria Werbowy, $3.8 million
10. Miranda Kerr, $3.5 million
