Who said beauty is only skin deep? Er, not us… Gisele Bundchen has proved it definitely pays to be genetically blessed (and financially savvy, obvs), as it emerged she’s on course to become with world’s first billionaire model.
The secret to her success is her lingerie label, Brazilian Intimates, which has already proved to be a sell out in Latin America, Portugal, Japan, and Israel. The 40-piece collection is now due to be sold worldwide… and it might be worth getting your order in early. When it went on sale in Brazil, stores reported a 40 per cent increase in turnover.
Gisele, 31, has been the top-earning model for the past seven years and we last saw fronting Versace and Givenchy's campaigns for Spring / Summer 2012. According to Forbes, she earned £28 million in the past year alone. (Repeat after us, ‘We’re not jealous’. Much). No surprise really, given the Victoria Secrets model also has an eco-friendly skincare line, Sejaa Pure Skincare, and shoe brand, Ipanema. Yes, Brand Gisele is IMMENSE.
Btw, she also finds time to be a mum and is married to super-gorgeous American footballer Tom Brady. Oh, and they’re just about to move into a £12 million California mansion. Now she’s a real role model…
