The magazine's roster of the world's highest-paid models in 2013 features cover girls are so wealthy that, in list-topper Gisele Bündchen's case, their earnings even eclipse those of famous athletes (like her husband, Tom Brady). And Gisele certainly is the top of the tops (despite having a famous bottom) -- she's number one on Forbes' list for the seventh year in a row.
So what does it take to become a top-earning model? Business sense, Forbes insists. After all, most of these successful stunners, like Gisele, Miranda Kerr and Kate Moss, have clothing, accessory or cosmetics lines on the side; high-end ad campaigns aren't the cash cows you'd think. And nearly all these ladies are Victoria's Secret Angels, so that gig can't hurt.
