She’s already the world’s highest-paid supermodel. She’s married to NFL quarterback Tom Brady, and they have an adorable son. She was named a goodwill ambassador to the U.N. Environment Programme. And she still maintains that enviable runway-ready figure. Now, the website Stockerblog, which has tracked every publicly traded company over the past five years, has determined that the brands Bundchen represents outperformed the Dow Jones Industrial Average on the whole.
Fred Fuld, the economist behind the blog, concluded that “the Gisele Index is up 41% since January 2007 versus the Dow which was down 4% during the same period. Since January 2008, Gisele was up 39% versus a drop of 4% for the Dow. And since January 2009, Gisele rose 67%.”
Since 2007, the 31-year-old has shilled for companies such as Pantene, Volkswagen, Apple, H&M, Dior and Versace.
According to Forbes, last year the Brazilian-born model raked in $45 million, more than the No. 2 and No. 3 supermodels combined (Heidi Klum and Kate Moss, who made $20 million and $13.5 million, respectively).
Bündchen has recently launched an eco-friendly skincare line, Sejaa Pure Skincare, as well as a lingerie line in Brazil. Both ventures should pad her bottom line even further.
