Gisele Bundchen, wife of New England Patriots and Super Bowl star Tom Brady, has decided to kiss runway modeling goodbye. She will reportedly walk in one last show for Colcci at Sao Paulo Fashion Week before retiring from the runway forever.
Brazilian source Estadao reports that although Gisele Bundchen is giving up her runway career, this doesn't mean she'll stop modeling altogether. She will still model and appear in ads for her numerous endorsement deals, including Chanel, David Yurman and, as of last year, Under Armour. In addition she has her own lingerie and footwear lines.
Forbes named Gisele Bundchen the 89th most powerful woman in the world in 2014. She earns even more than Tom Brady--bringing in an average of a very impressive $128,000 every day of her life.

Gisele Bundchen has been strutting her exceptional stuff on runways for 20 years. The Brazilian beauty will likely have more time to spend with her handsome husband and their two children--as well as Tom's son from his previous relationship with Blue Bloods star Bridget Moynahan--once she hangs up her stilettos. Tom and Gisele recently celebrated their wedding anniversary.

Do you think Gisele Bundchen will still qualify as the world's highest paid model once she gives up her runway work?
It's quite likely. Who wouldn't want Gisele touting their brand? And with her look comes a hefty price.
