Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen had more income in the last 12 months than any other supermodel, and even husband Tom Brady.

Bundchen, 34, has been the perennial paycheck queen of the runway since 2002, according to a new list from Forbes, which estimates her pre-tax haul at $47 million. She has all sorts of sweet deals representing products from Oral-B to Chanel and Carolina Herrera.

Nobody else came close.

Tied for second with $8 million each were "Dutch powerhouse" Doutzen Kroes (left) and Adriana Lima, Victoria's Secret's "longest-running Angel."

Legendary Brit Kate Moss, Sports Illustrated fave Kate Upton, ex-Angel Miranda Kerr and Liu Wen, "the first Chinese model to walk Victoria's Secret runway," formed a group earning $7 million each.

Brazil's Alessandra Ambrosio and American Hilary Rhoda were next, with $5 million apiece.

While Forbes' supermodel story put Brady's pay at $31.3 million, June's list of the 100 highest-paid athletes failed to include the New England Patriots quarterback, who has won three Super Bowls.

Brady's been high on the list before, but perhaps he fell just short this year because of the restructuring of his deal in February 2013. But it must have been close. Just from the Patriots, Brady earned $13 million in 2013, and finishing at No. 100 was soccer star Luis Suarez at $17.3 million.
