Gisele Bündchen is on track to become the first model in the world with a fortune exceeding $ 1 billion, according to a study by Forbes magazine.
The renowned Brazilian model will shortly become the first woman in the fashion industry whose assets exceed $ 1 billion. Her wealth is based on the revenue from fees received for fashion shows, advertising and marketing revenue from clothing creations whose design was done by the Brazilian model.
In addition to advertising campaigns for the Swedish brand H & M and the Italian brand Versace, Gisele Bundchen, 30, won several million dollars from the sale of over 250 million pairs of flip-flops, which she created in collaboration with the brand Ipanema.
In May, Gisele Bündchen was ranked the richest model in the world for the seventh consecutive year.
International press claims that the Brazilian model won the sum of $ 45 million last year, after becoming the face of the brand Pantene in March 2010.
Top model Gisele Bündchen is married to NFL star Tom Brady. She is the mother of a boy, aged one year and a half.
