Gisele Bündchen is an iconic fashion model, ranking among the highest-paid in the world for more than a decade. She has appeared in various fashion shows including New York Fashion Week, Victoria’s Secret and many more.
She was married to Tom Brady before a divorce in 2022. Let’s look at Gisele Bündchen’s net worth in 2023 for this piece.
Gisele Bündchen's net worth in 2022 is $400 million. This is according to reputable outlets, such as Celebrity Net Worth.
However, that all changed when Bündchen participated in a modeling course in 1993. The course would eventually lead her on a trip to San Pablo,
where scouts from Elite Model Management discovered Bündchen in a shopping mall, particularly McDonald’s.
Although Bündchen never really dreamed of being a model, she accepted the offer from Elite Model Management anyway.
As a result, it wasn't long before Bündchen kick-started her modeling career as a part of runway shows.
The move allowed her to relocate to San Pablo, where she participated in the nation’s Look of the Year competition and finished second.
In 1996, Bündchen got her breakthrough by appearing at New York Fashion Week. A year later, Bündchen was walking in very high heels in Alexander McQueen’s 1998 Spring collection runway.
After garnering much attention on the runway, multiple offers from notable brands came in. Brands such as Chloe, Dolce and Gabbana, Valentino,
Gianfranco Ferre, Versace, Ralph Lauren and Missoni tapped Bündchen for their respective ad campaigns.
Bündchen’s popularity continued rising as she appeared on Rolling Stone and Vogue magazine covers. Bündchen first graced the cover of Vogue in 1999, going on to score 37 international covers the following year.
Rolling Stone also dubbed Bündchen as “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” in 2000. She continued making waves with Vogue over a decade later. Featured on the cover of Vogue Brasil, the magazine sold 70,743 copies overall.
Bündchen announced her retirement as a Fashion Week runway model in 2000. This is because she inked a lucrative five-year contract, worth $25 million, with Victoria’s Secret.
After signing the deal, it wasn't long before Bündchen was tapped to flaunt Victoria’s Secret's Red Hot Fantasy Bra.
Made with 1,300 valuable stones including 300-carat rubies and diamonds, the lingerie made it to the Guinness World Records as the most valuable lingerie at $15 million.
After showcasing the Red Hot Fantasy Bra, Bündchen’s next most memorable stint with Victoria’s Secret came in 2005.
She wore the second-most expensive bra, which was the Sexy Splendor Fantasy Bra. The lingerie was worth $12.5 million.
