The fashion icon tops the new Forbes magazine list with an estimated $44 million (£27.5 million).

Although Bundchen, 35, announced her retirement from the runway earlier this year (14), she continues to dominate with beauty and fashion endorsements with the likes of Chanel, Carolina Herrera and Balenciaga.

Model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne is a distant second on the new list with $9 million (£5.6 million), but it's a personal best for the Brit, who raked in $3.5 million (£2.2 million) in 2014.

Victoria's Secret star Adriana Lima ties with Delevingne, while her fellow lingerie angel Doutzen Kroes comes in fourth with a $7.5 million (£4.7 million) fortune.

Russian model Natalia Vodianova rounds out the top five with $7 million (£4.4 million).

Kendall Jenner is among the newcomers on the Forbes list, with an estimated $4 million (£2.5 million) fortune. Kim Kardashian's 19-year-old sister is also the youngest person on the 2015 countdown.
