Model mum Bundchen tops richest model poll

The Brazilian stunner became a first-time mum in December (09) after she and her American football star husband, Tom Brady, welcomed son Benjamin – and she has spoken openly about the fact that being a good mom is her top priority.

But that doesn’t mean she’s no longer in demand as a catwalk star – and she pulled in $25 million (£16 million) last year (09) even though she was pregnant for most of it.

Heidi Klum is the second richest model, pulling in $16 million (£10.6 million) from ad campaigns and her role as a judge on U.S. fashion show Project Runway.

Brit Kate Moss came in at number three on the rich list, compiled by Forbes.com – she earned an $9 million (£6 million) last year (09) thanks partly to her hugely successful clothing range at Topshop, as well as a new perfume.

Other catwalk queens to make the top 10 include Bundchen’s fellow Brazilian Adriana Lima, Orlando’s Bloom’s lover Miranda Kerr and Dutch newcomer Doutzen Kroes.
