Gisele Bundchen world’s highest paid supermodel, even after retirement.

Forbes’ published its annual list of the top earning supers across the globe today – and Brazilian bombshell Gisele has landed the top spot for the ninth year in a row.

The 35-year-old Brazilian earned a cool $60 million in the past year, a massive $48 million more than the second runners up, Cara Delevingne and fellow Brazilian, Adriana Lima (who both earned $12 million). “I don’t see how to continue (modelling on the catwalk),” she told Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper at the time, “and stopping will leave room for other projects I have for myself. The 35-year-old mother of two raked in an eye-watering $44 million (€38m) in the last year, thanks to lucrative deals with Chanel, Under Armour and Stuart Weiztman.

The Forbes’ list was based on each model’s earnings from June 2014 to June 2015 and included income from cosmetics, endorsements, advertising and fragrance deals. The wife of football star Tom Brady, Forbes’ calculated her earnings as $120K a day – putting Linda Evangelista’s infamous “I won’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day” statement to shame. Behind Bundchen, 23-year-old model-turned-actress Delevingne and 34-year-old Victoria’s Secret stalwart, Lima, was Dutch model Doutzen Kroes and Russian model, Natalia Vodianova.

Australian Miranda Kerr and 27-year-old Puerto Rican Joan Smalls come in equal sixth with $7.5 million, while Karlie Kloss also tied with Candice Swanepoel, Alessandra Ambrosio and Lara Stone at number eight, all pulling in $6.9 million. Kendall Jenner was one of two newcomers to the list, joining the ranks at number 16 with an estimated $5.5 million in earnings and 36.4 million Instagram followers. “Bundchen alone has earned $430 million [A$598 million] from modeling since 2001,” Forbes’ says. “Still, her highly paid cohort are very much the minority elite–models are rarely paid for editorial shoots or catwalk appearances, while gigs with prestigious design houses don’t pay much but give models exposure they can leverage.” It is news sure to come as a blow to other ex-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, who met up with the Prince in South Africa last month and who is reportedly interested in reigniting a romance. The Sun newspaper has reported that after taking part in an official engagement in Sussex yesterday, the fifth in line to the throne met with the 26-year-old actress and friends at a private party in Chelsea, west London.

Harry was introduced to Cressida by his cousin Princess Eugenie in May 2012 and started dating a month later, however their romance was reported to have hit trouble when the Prince was pictured naked with a woman at a party in Las Vegas. Harry and Cressida were reunited after his four-month deployment to Afghanistan as an Apache pilot and were spotted kissing on ski slopes in Verbier in February 2013. In all, Lady Mary has five children by three of her four husbands, including Isabella, married to Virgin heir Sam Branson, who are all hugely protective of ‘Smalley’, as Cressida is known in the family.
