When it comes to supermodels making bank, Gisele Bündchen has had a good run. For the last 14 years, the model has topped Forbes' list of highest-earning supermodels. She was No. 1 again on this year's list with earnings totaling $30.5 million (thanks to contracts with brands like Pantene, Carolina Herrera, and Chanel).
