From high-fashion campaigns to branding herself, the Brazilian beauty could easily become the most lucrative model!

Not only has Gisele been the world’s top-earning supermodel for seven years in a row, but she’s on track to becoming the world’s first billionaire supermodel — and the first female Brazilian self-made billionaire!

Sure, she stars in a slew of campaigns, but the beauty also is in the process of branding herself. While licensing her name on everything from jewelry to lingerie and cosmetics, the savvy supermodel is currently eyeing the Brazilian women’s wear market. Not only does she have an uber-successful line of sandals with Grendene, but she also launched a lingerie company, Gisele Bundchen Brazilian Intimates, that’s exclusively sold at Hope (the Brazilian version of Victoria’s Secret). The supermodel, who owns a steak in the brand, is estimated to make $19 million per year from the venture (added on to her estimated $45 million annual income). She’s also the creative director to fashion retailer C&A’s Gisele Bundchen Collection — yet another money-making venture.

Aside from expanding her presence in the women’s wear market, Gisele also founded an eco-friendly cosmetics company, Sejaa Pure Skincare, based in Arizona. According to Forbes the supermodel is in talks to sell a stake in the business of which she owns 100%.

While Gisele may be known as one of the most gorgeous gals around, she’s also apparently seriously business savvy!
