Gisele Bundchen to become first supermodel billionaire?

Supermodel Gisele Bündchen is all beauty and plenty of brains—according to Forbes, the Brazilian bombshell is poised to become a billionaire.

Besides raking in money by appearing in high-profile campaigns for the likes of Versace and Dior, Bündchen is also earning quite a few extra bucks by branding herself. So far, the catwalker has licensed her name to a number of products, including a jewelry and eco-friendly cosmetics line, and a line of sandals for Grendene. More recently, Mrs. Tom Brady also launched her own lingerie company.

According to Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo, such endeavors could add as much as $19 million per year to Bündchen's already estimated $45 million annual income.

And it doesn't stop there. Bündchen also earns additional money as the creative director for fashion retailer C&A's Gisele Bündchen Collection and intends to sell a stake in her Sejaa Pure Skincare company, which she founded last year.

If all goes according to plan, Forbes reports, she could sashay her way to becoming the first billionaire supermodel and Brazil's first female self-made billionaire.

    Many individuals unsuspectingly become movie pirates after they download movies to iPad, simply because they don’t get them from honest sources. Instead, they download illegal DVD rips or poorly recorded versions through the cinema. To keep above board, it’s best to go through official channels so that you can won’t be facing a hefty for movie piracy or perhaps download a virus onto your device accidentally. Thankfully, there are good reasons for movies that are 100% legitimate so that you don’t have to head for piracy. These official download services are affordable, fast and virus free!

    LOL!!!!! This is amazing! Someone who is very tall and quite average looking, who stands around in underwear, marries a football star and becomes a billionaire because the media tells you she is absolutely stunning and that she has some kind of talent(?) Are you sure her real name isn't Chauncey Gardner??? Only in AMER-EE-KA!

    I guess "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" since so many on here saying they don't think she is good looking. I think everything about her is gorgeous–not cookie cutter perfect blonde look–but flat out gorgeous. She is totally cool, never trying too hard to look beautiful because she doesn't have to! Do I think she is worth a billion? Well, no, but obviously someone does.

    Anyone else who thinks super models are grossly overpaid? Athletes? Television and movie stars? Musicians? It's pretty darned ridiculous when you see who makes the big money. Who do you think pays for it? Yep. We do.

      I used to think the same way until I did a course in economics. They are paid according to how much revenue they will produce. With the internet and movies being downloadable, movie stars are making more money for the stuidios therefore being paid more. Sports stars – same thing: bums on seats, ticket revenue, even the sale of food and beverages and t-shirts. It makes sense when you study economics.

    I certainly don't blame celebrities for making the money they obviously can, but I will never understand a world that rewards them so massively in comparison to folks who truly are more critical to society but don't get near the exposure nor ask for it. Which is perhaps why that is. I know it has been that way for sometime now, but the gap seems to be widening at what I personally think is an alarming rate, which eventually will lead to a societal meltdown. I think were already seeing that in the middle east.

    Democrat or Republican, doesn't matter – according to Reuters, Obama spent more in his first 90 Days than all previous US President's combined – nearly 1 Trillion (yes, with a T) dollars. His current policy is to raise the debt-ceiling for the government of the USA in response to the news that we are in danger of defaulting. I'm not saying other Presidents weren't big spenders, but the record (trillion dollar) expendatures – though well intended – were not fiscally responsible.

Then, she made several (apparently very smart) decisions when it came to marketing her image and spreading out her money for a good return. Now, she's getting what she worked for. If it were simple to do this, many, many more models would be raking in money up to billionaire status.

Or is it ok for people to make massive profits selling things high because the buyer doesn't want to die? Or is it evil to make money no matter how it's made? There will always be wealthy people.
