No surprises here! Gisele Bundchen topped Forbes' Highest-Paid Model List for 2014, making her the world's top model for the twelfth year in a row. 

The 34-year-old Brazilian supermodel pulled in an estimated $47 million before taxes and fees in the last 12 months, meaning she out-earned her husband, New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady, by about $16 million. Bundchen currently holds lucrative contracts with H&M, Chanel, Pantene and Carolina Herrera. She also bolsters her paycheck with her own line of lingerie, Gisele Bundchen Intimates.

The bombshell beat out fellow Brazilian Adriana Lima, who tied for second place alongside Doutzen Kroes. Both supermodels earned just about $8 million last year — nearly $39 million less than Gisele. 

Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio also scored a spot on the list, banking a cool $5 million last year. The Brazilian mother-of-two supplements her VS income with contracts from Pinko and H&M, as well as her own clothing line, alé by Alessandra for Planet Blue.

Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls also landed a spot on the Forbes list, earning just about $3 million last year. The boricua beauty recently landed the illustrious September cover of Vogue magazine, where she posed alongside fellow top-models Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss.
