Apr 30, 2008
LOS ANGELES, April 30, 2008 (AFP) - Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen remains the highest-earning catwalk queen after raking in more than 35 million dollars last year, Forbes.com revealed on Wednesday May 1st.
Bundchen, 27, may have ended her long-standing agreement with Victoria's Secret in 2007, but the blonde beauty still has around 20 contracts and has appeared in ads for Disney, Nivea and Aquascutum.
Bundchen, the former girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio and current partner of American football star Tom Brady, earned more than double the second highest paid model on the list, Germany's Heidi Klum.
Klum, 34, earned 14 million dollars through her modelling, media and fashion business interests.
Third on the list was British supermodel Kate Moss. Despite ending campaigns with several high-profile labels, the waif-like icon was able to net around 7.5 million thanks to the success of her fashion line.
Moss also continues to work for Donna Karan, Longchamp, Agent Provocateur, Yves Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli and Rimmel, Forbes noted.
