Hubby Tom Brady and his New England Patriots may have only earned the number two spot in the NFL this year, but supermodel Gisele Bundchen won the Super Bowl in Time magazine’s list of the most influential models of all time. The catagory, in ‘All-TIME 100 Fashion Icons‘, also included Cindy Crawford, Heidi Klum and Twiggy.
Bundchen, discovered in San Paulo, Brazil when she was 14, has been the highest paid model in the world since 2004. Last year, Forbes magazine estimated that her total earnings have passed the $550 million mark. She is credited with ending the “heroin-chic” era of modeling (Kate Moss, Gia Carangi) and was one of the best known of Victoria’s Secret angels.
After a highly publicized five year relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio, Bundchen began dating quarterback Brady. They married in April 2009 and welcomed son Benjamin Rein in December of the same year. She has had a love/hate relationship with Pats fans, many attributing Brady’s failure at winning another Super Bowl to the “Gisele jinx”. She has also been blamed for what many fans feel is Tom’s lack of football fashion sense – from his endorsement of UGG boots to his Justin Bieber hairstyle of last season.
