Most-Searched Model of 2012: Gisele Bündchen
By Angel Lenise Robinson December 28,2012
Unless you’ve been missing in all of 2012′s fashion action, you’d know that when it comes to the arena of supermodel status, Brazilian beauty Gisele Bündchen is the industry MVP. For one, she topped Forbes’ list of highest paid models, raking in an impressive $45 million thanks to endorsements with Versace, Pantene, and Espirit (that trumped the second-highest earning model, Kate Moss, by nearly $36 million). At 32 years old, that’s quite the feat, considering that most models are deemed expendable by the time they reach their mid-20s. Aside from covering Harper’s Bazaar Brazil, appearing in a saucy topless spread for VOGUE Italia and, sauntering down Alexander Wang‘s Fall 2012 runway, she managed philanthropy with the United Nations Environmental Program and parenting alongside her quarterback husband, Tom Brady. The couple — the third-richest celebrity pair in the world — also welcomed their second child, daughter Vivian Lake, earlier this month. From modeling to mommy-hood, Gisele earned her most-searched model stripes well.
