Gisele Is World’s Top-Earning Supermodel

Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen has been named the highest-earning supermodel in the world after raking in $25 million in 2009 alone.

The catwalk stunner’s contracts with top designer labels Versace, Christian Dior, True Religion and Ebel watches have helped Bundchen bank $9 million more than her closest competitor, Heidi Klum.

Seal‘s wife pocketed an estimated $16 million in the last 12 months, while Adriana Lima landed in third place on the Forbes list with earnings of $8 million.

Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio round out the top five with fortunes of $6 million each, while Orlando Bloom‘s girlfriend Miranda Kerr also makes the list — she is placed eighth with $3 million.
