Yes Gisele, we would be smiling too if we found out we were worth as much as you are.
Good old Forbes magazine has sunk its claws back into Gisele’s bank balance to announce that the 33-year-old has had her most lucrative year to date, bringing home a total of $47 million (that’s a whopping $128,000 a day), which to most of us seems like an insane amount of money to be raking in on a daily basis. Although it would explain all of the decadent holiday photos she has been taking lately. Gisele often says that Forbes reports her earnings incorrectly, although not even she can deny the $35 million gap that lies between her earnings and the second highest-earning model, Miranda Kerr.
Despite her far more reserved approach to the media, Gisele is absolutely towering above models like Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss, who may party harder with more people, but are not bringing in the contracts like the Brazilian superstar. Her Instagram makes her seem like a really laid-back, holistic yoga bunny, so perhaps the early bird is truly getting the worm. While the others are crawling into cabs at 3:00 a.m., Gisele is getting up to do pilates before going to work for either H&M, Louis Vuitton, Carolina Herrera, Chanel or the other high-profile brands paying her bills.
The mother of one also recently signed new contracts with Emilio Pucci and Balenciaga, which were not even factored into Forbes’ calculations, so who knows how much the final number is. Either way, it’s impressive and the big designers clearly think so, too.
