Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen

It pays to be a supermodel. In the last year, Gisele Bundchen, the world’s top-earning model, brought home $25 million. Her husband, hunky NFL quarterback Tom Brady, earned just $5 million, prompting a sports columnist to call him “a kept man.” Just kidding, Tom!

Number two on the list is Heidi Klum, who earned $16 million, while Kate Moss, at number 3, earned $9 million. The earnings period covered was from June 2009 to June 2010.

According to, which compiled the list, fashion houses and retailers are sticking by the models they know best during the current recession instead of going with a new model who might not be as popular with customers. For example, Victoria’s Secret hasn’t added a new Angel to its lineup in the last two years, the website reports. And a decline in magazine advertising has led to fewer editorial pages for new models to break into.

The rest of the list includes Adriana Lima ($7.5 million), Dutch model Doutzen Kroes ($6 million), Alessandra Ambrosio ($5.5 million), Natalia Vodianova ($5.5 million), Daria Werbowy ($4.5 million), Miranda Kerr ($4 million) and Carolyn Murphy ($3.5 million). (Huffington Post)
