Jump To Gisele Bundchen's Stats
Some people just don't see what the bid deal is with Gisele BŁndchen. Just because the Brazilian model has legs up to her neck and wears lingerie as if it weren't there (daily), there are those who pooh pooh her anointment as a supermodel. Those same people have not been thoroughly evaluated for psychological problems either because Gisele must have traded her soul in for those fine, um, looks. Her modeling career, endorsements and brand have jettisoned her net worth to $458,658,250.
Gisele's struts down the catwalks of Paris, Milan, London and New York can translate into a clothes designer's dream as she commands the most money these days to adorn any fashion house's drapes. For nearly 14 years, she has built up a reputation by styling the clothes of Victoria Secrets, Alexander McQueen, Misoni, Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana and Valentino. To this day, designer's salivate to have BŁndchen wear their wares. This year, Gisele has already signed three major spring campaigns. She has secured Versace, Givenchy, and Salvatore Ferragamo.
While designers are upping her catwalk prices Ė reportedly $7,000 per hour for her - magazine covers have been in bitter fights to have her face grace their journalistic forays - Vogue, Glamor, Shape, Cosmopolitan and a slew of others.
Her choice of men seems to reflect her career. She was noted as the consummate girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio in the early 2000s. As her star began to shine more, she ultimately moved on and married the star quarterback for the NFL's New England Patriots Ė Tom Brady. Not too shabby, huh?
No one can say she is just another pretty face. BŁndchen has tremendous endorsement and investment businesses that make her individually a very rich woman. She has her own flip flop sandal wear line called Ipanema. While her modeling generates substantial cash flow, she has been involved with real estate since she was 18. BŁndchen invests, retrofits, constructs and contracts real property all over the world. She claims that only 40% of her earning come from modeling, the rest from contracts.
