Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen has retained her title as the world’s highest-paid supermodel.

The 36-year-old, who announced her retirement from the runway in 2014, continues to reign over Forbes magazine’s annual earnings list, banking $30.5 million in the year from June, 2015, thanks to lucrative fashion deals with brands like Chanel and Carolina Herrera, and sales of her own lingerie and skincare line.

Gisele easily trumps her nearest competitor, Adriana Lima – her fellow countrywoman is a distant second with $10.5 million .

Kim Kardashian’s half-sister Kendall Jenner ties with Karlie Kloss for third place with $10 million, while another social media favorite, Gigi Hadid, makes her debut on the countdown, at five, sharing the spot with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley with $9 million .

Others featured in the top 20 include Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, and Lily Aldridge, and together, the stunners earned a whopping $154 million over the past year, and boast 200 million followers on Instagram.

Gisele has dominated the Forbes countdown since 2002. She recently lit up the Rio Olympics in her native Brazil by returning to the runway for a one-off appearance during the Opening Ceremony.
