I've always thought that she looks like a man-horse hybrid. A really, really sexy man horse hybrid. Jerry Hall, too.

I can definitely see how she's the top model- let's be honest, Kate's her only real competition, and at this point calling Heidi Klum a "model" is like calling Jessica Simpson a "singer"- but top female celebrity over all? Press alone should have edged the Lady Gagas and Rihannas in front of her, and I have a really hard time imagining her making more money than any of those little pop tarts...

could someone give a breakdown of what her worth really means? I know she gets paid hefty for campaigns because she is a major seller, but how on earth could she make 25 million in a year?

someone mentioned her Ipanema line, but even that isn't enough to make up 25 million dollars...
I'm just curious

Gisele owns a Hotel in Brazil,her Ipanema line,Colcci contract and Skincare line plus with all her modeling work combined I believe I believe she invests in properties as well.

I think they were talking about models, not business people) whatever she owns or invests in...well, it is pretty easy when you already have millions to invest and make more...which is rather stupid knowing that she cares for the enviroment etcetera...but FANTASTICAL, you have a very interesting question and you are absolutelly right...just a model can never make that much money per year, no matter what they do!
On the other hand even Gisele said in an interview that NOBODY(even her) can ever know or figure out how much she or any other model earns...all those lists are based on assumptions and never have anything to do with reality, which of course makes perfect sense! She might be making 100 milion or less than 1 million, it is her own thing and nobody has the right to make announcements how much a model earns...no matter how much it is, it is more than enough)

Those lists not only count earnings but they take into consideration media impact/exposure. Gisele is one of the few models who will be on 20 gossip sites after she says or does something, lol.

and the few models who make these lists, are business women, not just models. Heidi,Kate,Gisele all have brands, make good money from modeling,and are always in the media.

^and see I understand that they take into consideration media impact, but how does that relate to how much a model is worth? that's not money she is putting in the bank...say for instance how much Bill Gates is making/worth because of his company and investments.

I agree rado, I don't think anyone can ever truly tell how much she really makes, although however much it is I'm sure the real number would still put her at number one on the Forbes list of models. I was just trying to figure where they get a number like 25 million from lol

again, I am sure the amount is not 25 million) You can read many funny and amazing things in the press and I am almost sure 100% of it is not true, so I stopped reading news or watching TV years ago! Not that I would care even if they were telling the truth!
However I do not really think we should ever be interested in how much money a model makes! I know for sure that they make a lot! And Gisele is not the only one! I am sure Raquel Zimmermann or Anja Rubik might be making tons more than Gisele at this moment and they make them from modeling...Gisele is a business woman, but not a business model with modeling...as we know she has hotels and makes other investments, which does not really make her only a model anymore, so she can not be on such lists as a model...she should "compete" in those funny lists with real businessmen)lol
Any way, whatever this is, i find it extremely absurd to even talk about it!
I think we should celebrate and discuss only the modeling jobs our favorite models do...the rest is private and most people do not and will never wanna talk about it, so there is NO way we can ever get to the truth, no matter how curious we are)
And Gisele is far from the only model out there who makes millions from modeling...there are at least 50 female models, who make millions every year!!! She just happens to be one of the popular ones.

I agree I really find these forbe's list kinda funny myself. I can care less how much a model makes/what is said about her,etc.. honestly. Was just giving my input on what I thought. hehe Most people outside of fashion now focus more on her titles than her actual work.

it's tough to breakdown her actual income.

but basically - because she's such a huge star, she'll earn much much more than other models for doing campaigns.

for example, i'm certain her current Balenciaga campaign will be paying her at least a million dollars.

the reason why Gisele makes so much more than everyone else is because she does alot of MASS-MARKET commercial campaigns that pay a fortune. her Nivea contract will be a multi-million dollar deal. same with Colcci. and her sandal line would be taken into consideration into her income, because it has to do with fashion. i doubt her hotel earnings would count towards the 25 million.

Of course the numbers are not precise but at the same time, this is Forbes Magazine, so I think that the numbers are somewhat sound, perhaps there is a timing issue and earnings get counted in the wrong time frame, but them presumably if one year is understated, then the next year is overstated.

I am one of the people who is interested in this kind of information, so I am glad that lists like these get made. Now what I would like to see is a list (or at least a break out) of the earnings from modeling work alone, be it commercial or high fashion, anything where the model is "the face" of the brand / product / project. I do like knowing that these models are also entrepreneurs and therefore don't have a problem with these activities, but I want to know what Gisele, Kate or Heidi earnings are from non-Top Shop - sandals - TV productions related stuff.

She's not the most beautiful model. But she's the most talented model. that's the difference. she knows how to move. A photographer can get the right shot with her in the first few frames. There's no effort working with Gisele as there is with more arguably "beautiful" models. And she has some type of force or presence that just overshadows other models. It has a little bit to do with the fact that she looks like she could kick your ***.
