Forbes recently released its annual list of the Most Powerful Celebrities In The World, and in addition to the slew of musicians, athletes and movie stars featured, a number of fashion models also made the cut this year.
Of all the models on the list, which ranks celebrities based on their fame and money, Gisele Bündchen was ranked the highest in 56th place. The Brazilian beauty has been making headlines left and right lately thanks to a number of high-profile fall 2014 ad campaigns she stars in. She was recently named the star of Balenciaga’s fall 2014 campaign, as well as Isabel Marant’s and Stuart Weitzman’s.
According to the list, Bündchen made about $47 million in the past 12 months before taxes and other fees. Gisele Bündchen’s reign as the world’s highest-earning supermodel continues, and to that she can now also add the impressive label ‘World’s Most Powerful Supermodel’. Bündchen is joined on Forbes’ list this year by fellow models Kate Moss and Kate Upton.
Moss, sits at 91, thanks to her ongoing contract with Rimmel cosmetics and St. Tropez, as well as her reunion with Topshop, for whom she created a comeback collection earlier this year. She is estimated to have earned $7 million in the last year.
At just 22 years old, Upton is one of the youngest names to appear on the list. Her phenomenal rise to stardom, thanks to her appearance on the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue cover, sees her placed 94th. In addition to her modeling gigs, Upton also landed her first acting job in “The Other Woman.” all of which contribute to her $7 million earnings in the last year.
