5 Models Who Turned Into Multi-Millionaire Moguls
2. Gisele Bündchen (Estimated net worth: $290 million)
Unarguably, Bündchen is one of the most popular models in the world—so popular, in fact, she’s most usually known simply as Gisele. At 33, she’s been modeling since she was 16, and has been the face of many multi-million dollar campaigns including Versace, Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Christian Dior, and Victoria’s Secret. A humanitarian and advocate for green living, Bündchen is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Programme.
As a businesswoman, Gisele makes serious money through her lingerie line, her eco-friendly cosmetics company, Sejaa, and her incredibly popular Ipanema flip-flops. For the seventh year in a row, Gisele is the highest-paid supermodel in the world; making $42 million in 2013 — slightly more than more than quarterback husband Tom Brady’s $38.3 million. As the star of H&M’s new summer campaign, it doesn’t look like Gisele will be going anywhere anytime soon.
