Gisele Bundchen is the world’s highest-paid model and the runners-up aren’t even close. She earned $47 million in the past 12 months, which is about as much as the next seven ladies made combined.

It’s the eighth year in a row the 34-year-old model has topped Forbes‘ annual list, thanks in part to profitable contracts with H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Pantene, Oral-B and of course Victoria’s Secret. She also gets a cut from sales from her popular line of Grendene jelly sandals.

That’s $5 million more than she made in 2013, and $16 million more than what her quarterback husband Tom Brady earned, and he’s one of the faces of the NFL.

Brazlian Adriana Lima — who is the longest-running Victoria’s Secret model in history — and Dutch stunner Doutzen Kroes — another Victoria’s Secret model with a L’Oreal contract and a Calvin Klein fragrance ad — round out the top three, with each of them having earned $8 million.
