The economic recovery has been good for the world’s top-earning models. With consumers again cautiously spending on luxury goods, the 10 top-earning female models on the planet made a combined $112 million in the 12 months to May–up 30% from a total of $86.5 million over the previous year. Most of this gain was enjoyed by the top three: Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum and Kate Moss. The trio have transformed themselves from supermodels to business moguls, stepping off the runway and into the role of designers, entrepreneurs and pop icons.

Bündchen is an unparalleled force within the fashion industry and a brand name herself. Last month she got a shout-out in an unlikely forum: the third-quarter earnings call of Procter & Gamble ( PG – news – people ). Why? P&G’s Pantene shampoo sales exploded 40% in Latin America after Bündchen started slinging the suds.

“Gisele Bündchen is clearly in a class by herself, and has been for a number of years,” says Edward Razek, chief marketing officer of Limited Brands ( LTD – news – people ), who worked with the supermodel during her Victoria’s Secret career. “She’s an international icon who can also move product–from shampoo to couture.” The economic impact of a Bündchen-backed campaign has placed her far ahead of her peers, earning the Brazilian bombshell an estimated $45 million over the past 12 months. Her earnings climbed $20 million over the previous year, thanks to an economic boom in her homeland of Brazil coupled with a 10% surge in the value of the Brazilian real against the dollar.

what leo should do is hook up with a classy lady, talent, intelligent lady his age, like kate winslet but carb-faced leo is too immature. so, he goes for airheads like mansele and barf.

GERMANS DO IT BEST!
BEAUTIFUL GERMAN WOMAN!

@pigbearman: Leo isn’t carb faced, someone’s a little bit too jealous.

Gisele Bündchen

Since leaving Victoria’s Secret in 2007, Bündchen has gotten married and become a mother, but she has yet to slow down. Bündchen remains the face of numerous campaigns and endorsement deals throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America. From H&M to Dior to Versace, she stands behind brands that represent both luxury and affordability. Her selling power is quantifiable: Bündchen’s endorsement was credited in Procter & Gamble’s most recent quarterly earnings call for helping to increase Pantene’s sale in Brazil by 40%. Her most lucrative deals go beyond modeling: She earns a percentage of sales from the Ipanema flipflops bearing her name, which today rival Brazil’s well-known Havaianas brand. To top it off, most of Bündchen’s paychecks are paid in euros and Brazilian reals, resulting in an increase in earnings as both currencies appreciated against the dollar by double-digit percentages over the last year.

Oprah/MJ/Madonna of models!

Her face is so masculine and “hard” , not attractive at all.
Not a feminine thing on her, only gay guys love her and the fashion world because she makes clothes look good on her straight up and down body, that’s it.

Even the new mommies made the list.
Well, I expected Doutzen to stay in the top ten, because even though she lost almost half a year, she has several huuuuge contracts.
But I was pleasantly surprised to see Miranda retain her #9 position even though she lost half a year, too. She still earned more last year than the year before. If she hadn’t had to hit the breaks, she may have moved up a few notches.
Anyway, congratulations to all of the ladies!

@A: Stop trying to pass your opinion as fact, you douche. LMAO at jealous losers.

DOH!
Never mind.
I was looking at the wrong list.
I googled the Forbes article, and didn’t realize that even though they were listed for earnings last year, they still refer to it as the ’2011′ list.
Neither Doutzen nor Miranda made it this year.
Which really surprised me about Doutzen. I thought that her contracts were larger than that.
Oh well.
Off to hide in a hole.

Oh please @ 05/06/2011 at 8:43 pm

@A @A: yeah, she doesn’t have a “feminine thing on her”, that’s why she has been multiple times listed among the most beautiful and sexiest women in the world. “Only gay guys love her”, then all men that visits askmen.com are gay, right? But you… no, you are very macho by coming to a celebrity gossip site and leave a comment on a post somewhat related to fashion…

I don’t get the fuss about her??????? [ not hating.....]

how come she is so earth friendly???shoes she sells are not environmentally friendly…

@pigbearman: if you really liked southpark, you would know its “man-bear-pig”….
