Gisele Bundchen, Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima are all so much more than just pretty faces with killer legs. On Monday Forbes released its list for the World’s Highest Paid Models, 2014, and these Victoria’s Secret Angels rounded out the top three with Tom Brady’s wife blowing away the competition.
According to Forbes 21 beautiful women” made a combined $142 million” within the past year, which proves “flawless genes and a stellar business acumen are a killer combination.” Topping the highest paid model list in the world for 2014 is 34-year-old Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen at $47 million. Us Weekly reported Bundchen beat out her NFL pro husband who only earned $38.3 million in comparison.
With gorgeous hair and a face and body to match it isn’t any wonder Gisele ranked the top of the list. The mother of two has contracts with Pantene, H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Brazilian shoemaker Grendene, Oral-B and her own line of lingerie and intimates, which catapulted Bundchen to the top of Forbes’ Highest Paid Models, 2014.
Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima round out the top three, both earning $8 million for 2014. The 29-year-old Dutch delight is also a new mom of two. Doutzen has deals with L’Oreal Cosmetics, Victoria’s Secrets, H&M and Calvin Klein, plus her own line of cashmere sweaters. Adriana Lima is the “longest running Angel” in Victoria’s Secret history. The 33-year-old Brazilian beauty with two children began with the clothing/lingerie company in 2000, is the face of Maybelline, has an overseas contract with Veet Hair Removal, and is the brand ambassador for Desigual.
