Boston-by-way-of-Brazil super model Gisele Bundchen tops Forbes' World's Highest-Paid Models of 2013 list with a cool $42 million. The number is an estimate for Bundchen's work from June 2012-2013 and includes paychecks from her endless advertising, endorsement, and editorial gigs. This is the seventh year in a row that Bunchen has topped the list and 33-year-old towers over the other listmakers, including Miranda Kerr with $7.2 million, Adrianna Lima, $6 million, and Kate Moss, $5.7 million, in spots 2-4 respectively.
Some of this year's most-buzzed and commercialized models, including Kate Upton, Karlie Kloss, and Cara Delevingne, were notably absent from the list but Forbes isn't shutting the door on them just yet, writing:
Some likely candidates to make the list next year: Karlie Kloss, the newest addition to Victoria’s Secret’s lineup, and Kate Upton, the commercial-turned-editorial bombshell who Vogue recently deemed “the hottest supermodel on Earth.” Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio, who dropped off the list this year, could make a comeback.
Bundchen also snagged two other spots on Forbes' annual lists this year, including No. 95 on the 100 Most Influential Women of 2013 and an unranked slot on the World's Most Powerful Couples list with main squeeze Tom Brady.
