The list also ties Cara Delevingne and Adriana Lima in joint second, and features Kendall Jenner for the first time.
For the ninth year in a row, Gisele Bundchen is world’s highest paid model, raking in $44 million in the last 12 months – and more than $35 million ahead of her nearest rivals. That figure is even more impressive when you consider that she announced her retirement from modelling back in April!
The 35 year old Brazilian supermodel made these astronomical pre-tax earnings through a number of high-profile campaigns for the likes of Under Armour, Isabel Marant, Balenciaga and Stuart Weiztman, according to the annual list published by Forbes. It calculates each model’s earnings from June 2014 through June 2015, and takes into account endorsements from advertising and cosmetics as well as from modelling.
Gisele Bundchen is the top-earning model in the world yet again
Not one but two Fantasy Bras were displayed at this year's London show.
The 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show finally hit London on Tuesday (December 2nd) at the Earls Court Exhibition Centre for it's UK debut which saw twice as much bedazzlement as last year and just as much exciting live music.

Last year, only 40 models stole the runway when it took place at New York's Lexington Armory, but this week a further seven models joined the show for the biggest Victoria's Secret event yet. Not only that but the 19th Annual Fashion Show features a whopping 79 different looks, with this year's six categories including Angel Ball, Dream Girl, Exotic Traveler, Fairy Tale, Gilded Angels and University of Pink.
Gisele tops the list again, but which other models catwalked for big cash last year?
It's no surprise that Gisele Bundchen has topped Forbes' list of the world’s highest paid models for the eighth year running. Earning an astonishing $47 million last year alone, the Brazilian beauty stands head and shoulders above the rest of her fellow catwalkers. But which other models made the list of 2013's highest earners?

Adriana Lima and her husband have split after 5 years.
Lima is best known as a model for Victoria's Secret whilst Jaric is an NBA Player. Lima began modelling for the lingerie company in 2000 and is now amongst the highest paid models in the world. Lima famously, as the LA Times reports, was a virgin until she married at 27. She stated, in a 2006 interview with GQ, that "sex is for after marriage" and that the men in her life had "to respect that this is my choice. If there's no respect, that means they don't want me."
Lima and Jaric began dating from 2007 and became engaged the following year. They eloped in 2009 and married in a private ceremony in Wyoming on Valentine's Day.

They have two daughters together, Valentina and Sienna, who are both under the age of five. The couple's representative confirmed the news of their split to People and a statement was issued which stated that, whilst the couple are separating, they are remaining supportive as parents. In the joint statement, the couple stated: "After long and careful consideration, we have decided to separate after five years of marriage. We are grateful to be the parents of two incredible young daughters that we will continue to co-parent. We would greatly appreciate your respect for our family's privacy as we begin this delicate next chapter for all members of our family."
Lima, in becoming single, joins her fellow model Miranda Kerr who separated from actor Orlando Bloom last year.

Needing some inspiration for a New Year detox? Adriana Lima's got just the thing.
Adriana Lima seems to be the diet and work-out inspiration of the moment as her nutritionist unveils her foolproof Paleo diet and her trainer shows off her cardio circuit training regime.
Fresh-faced Adriana is sticking to natural foods to maintain her figure
There's no doubt that the Victoria's Secret Angel has got a body to die for, but it comes with a lot of motivation and self-discipline. Adriana wasted no time in getting back into the gym after Christmas and it's no wonder as the festive season is the only time Ms Lima allows herself to indulge. 'I eat everything I want on Christmas day', she told Hello! Online. 'I really don't watch what I eat.' The rest of the time, however, she's sticking stringently to 2013's most popular diet, the Paleo diet.

Bundchen has been named the highest paid model with estimated earning of $42 million (£27 million) in the last 12 months, beating competition from Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr and Kate Upton
Gisele Bundchen has been named the highest earning model of the last year by Forbes Magazine, earning an estimated $42 million (£27 million) over the course of the last year, according to the magazine. The Brazil-born beauty battled off competition from a number of high-profile models, including Miranda Kerr and Kate Moss, but managed to finished way ahead of her nearest competitor, earning even more than her mega-rich hubby; NFL star Tom Brady (who Forbes reckon earned $38.3 million last year).
Gisele Bundchen blew away her nearest competitors with some huge earnings
According to the magazine, Gisele earns a large portion of her cash from campaigns for such labels as H&M, Chanel and David Yurman, however it is her own merchandise, which includes lingerie, skin care and flip-flops, that has earned her the most significant portion of her massive takings. Not bad for someone who was pregnant for most of last year, with her and Brady having their second child together at the end of 2012. The earnings were estimated from between June 2012 and June 2013.

Victoria's Secret shows are always the 'who's who' of the world's beautiful women. Their models have been named 'angels', which is a trope carried through by every show's prop wings. This year, performing alongside the models and not looking at all out of place was Rihanna, who was showing off more than just her amazing voice.

Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber sang, whilst models like Toni Garrn and alessandro ambrosio strutted their stuff: that's right, it was the glitz and glamous of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at the Lexington Armory in New York. A bedazzling event, the show was split into six sections, each with their own titles; Circus, complete with acrobats, contortionists and a sword eater; Dangerous Liaisons; Pink Is Us; Silver Screen Angels; Angels in Bloom; and Calendar Girls, which turned out to be the rather odd spectacle of Mars serenading a model for each month of the year.
