One of my favorite Football Wives, Gisele Bundchen, wife of New England Patriot's quarterback, Tom Brady, landed on the Forbes list of The World's 100 Most Powerful Women. Coming in at #60, Gisele brought home $45 million dollars between May 2010 and May 2011 from modeling gigs, endorsement deals, and independent business ventures. The biggest percentage of her income is from her partnership with Brazilian footwear company, Grendene, Gisele for Ipanema, but additional income comes from her deals with H&M, Roberto Cavalli, Pantene, and Max Factor. Gisele also launched a natural skincare line, Sejaa, which is being courted for acquisition by major cosmetics companies. Did I mention that she is also a UN Environmental Ambassador?
Not only that, but add in her husband, Tom, and they come in at #1 as the World's Highest Paid Celebrity Couple.
