London: Gisele Bundchen has been revealed as the world’s highest-paid model in the latest ranking by Forbes. Although Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr and Lara Stone also made it to the list with impressive fortunes, the Brazialian supermodel’s 45-million-dollar earnings put her way ahead of her peers, a daily reported.

Also making it to the top ten were Natalia Vodianova, Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel, but the list revealed some notable absences, such as model mogul Heidi Klum.

The 31-year-old model made an estimated 45 million dollars from May 1st, 2011 to May 1st, 2012, remaining an unparalleled force within the fashion world.

She endorses brands such as Pantene, Esprit, and Versace, and makes a percentage of profits on her Ipanema flip-flops and many other Brazilian products bearing her name.

Moss may have secured the second spot, but the British supermodel was placed with earnings of 9.2 million dollars, down from 13.5 million dollars last year.
