The Top 5 Highest Paid Models in the World 2014
Gisele Bundchen – $47 million
Supermodel Linda Evangelista famously wouldn’t get out of bed for less than $10,000; this year it could be said Gisele did not leave the house for less than $128,000 a day. The Brazilian icon pocketed $47 million in the last 12 months before taxes and fees, making her the world’s highest-paid model for the eighth year in a row. Along with lucrative contracts for H&M, Chanel, and Carolina Herrera, Gisele gets a cut of sales from the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grendene. The face of Pantene hair products and Oral-B in Brazil, Bundchen’s line of Hope lingerie — Gisele Bundchen Intimates — also plumps up her paycheck. A Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Environment Programme, 34-year-old Bundchen sits on the board of the Rainforest Alliance, a non-profit dedicated to conserving biodiversity and sustainability.
