Gisele Bundchen has topped Forbes' list of highest-earning models.
The 35-year-old model - who announced her retirement from the runway earlier this year - made an astonishing $44 million between June 2014 and June 2015, meaning she took the top spot for the 14th year in a row, thanks to lucrative advertising campaigns for the likes of Chanel, Balenciaga, Carolina Herrera and Emilio Pucci, as well as profits from her Gisele Bunchen Intimates lingerie collection and the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grenden.
Elsewhere, Kendall Jenner - who took 16th spot with $4 million - and Lithuanian model Edita Vilkeviciute, who placed 17th, were the only newcomers to the rankings, while Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt and Behati Prinsloo were among those who just fell short of the $3.5 million needed to make this year's list.
