A new baby sure didn't throw off Gisele Bündchen's modeling career in 2013.

According to Forbes' just-released list, the proud mom to Vivian Lake and Benjamin remained the most successful model in the world.

The 33-year-old Brazilian beauty earned an estimated $42 million in 2013. That's more than what her quarterback husband Tom Brady made in the same year!

Thanks to successful merchandise partnerships, which include a lingerie line and several accessory collections, as well as modeling gigs with H&M, Chanel and David Yurman, the model made the top spot for the seventh year in a row.


Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr was second on the list with an estimated $7.2 million. After signing new contracts with Mango, David Jones, Lipton and Quantas, the Australian beauty was able to cash in and expand her portfolio.

Adriana Lima, Kate Moss and China's first major supermodel, Liu Wen, rounded out the top five.

Are they any signs that Bündchen is slowing down her career leaving room for a new top model? Not exactly. Just last week, the model was hard at work modeling H&M's fall collection.

This working mom is here to stay!
