Antonio de Moraes Barros Filho/WireImage(NEW YORK) — Gisele Bundchen is the world’s highest-paid model, according to Forbes magazine.  The 31-year-old Brazilian bombshell who is married to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, earned an estimated $45 million in the past year, thanks to contracts with Esprit, Pantene and Versace, amongst others.

British supermodel Kate Moss is a distant second on the Forbes list with estimated earnings of $9.2 million between May 2011 and May 2012.

Russian Natalia Vodianova is third with $8.6 million.

The top ten highest-paid models raked in a combined total of just under $100 million.

Bundchen and Brady were also named Forbes‘ highest-paid celebrity couple last August, with Brady bringing home $31 million worth of bacon. Brady signed a $72 million four-year contract with the Patriots in September 2010.
