Gisele Bündchen’s Net Worth Is Unknown.
Gisele Bündchen is a Brazilian supermodel with a $400 million net worth. That fortune is separate and unrelated to her husband, Tom Brady, who is worth $250 million. The Bundchen-Bradys are worth a total of $650 million.
Gisele Bündchen was born in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, on July 20, 1980. Her ancestors were Germans. Gisele grew up with her twin sister Patricia and their four other sisters, Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, and Rafaela, in the Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Gisele speaks Portuguese, English, Italian, Spanish, and French, among other languages. She was an avid volleyball player as a child and had aspirations of making it her vocation. Gisele, Patricia, and Gabriela enrolled in modeling training in 1993 to improve their posture. Elite Model Management discovered Gisele at a Sao Paulo mall the next year. She came in second place in the Elite Model Look competition. Gisele traveled to Sao Paulo at the age of 14 to begin her modeling career.
In 1996, Bündchen received her big break at New York Fashion Week. She auditioned for 43 shows in 1997, but only two international shows were picked. She was picked to walk the runway in Alexander McQueen’s Spring 1998 ready-to-wear show “Rain” only because she could walk in very high heels on the slick runway. She also modelled for Missoni, Chloe, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino, Gianfranco Ferre, Ralph Lauren, and Versace in the same year. Vogue Paris, British Vogue, and i-D all featured her on their covers. She made her first appearance on the cover of American Vogue in July 1999. In December 1999, she graced the cover of Vogue once more. Gisele was chosen “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” by Rolling Stone in 2000, and she was featured on the cover of the magazine. She is often recognized for establishing a new model category: the Brazilian bombshell.
Bündchen was on the covers of 37 Vogue foreign editions, including three in the United States in the year 2000. She was on the cover of both the American and British editions of Vogue in January 2000. Gisele was a busy lady during Fashion Week in the spring of 2000. In New York, Paris, and Milan, she opened shows for Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, and Christian Dior. From 1993 through 2003, Bündchen participated in every Dolce & Gabbana ad campaign.
I believe the more tools we have in our toolbox the better. I feel stronger, more confidence and empowered since I started practicing self-defense. I feel it’s an important skill for all, but specially for us women. 🤛🏼 pic.twitter.com/EzUpylXfD4

Bündchen owns the Brazilian hotel Palladium Executive and has a brand of designer sandals called Impanema under the Brazilian footwear manufacturer Grendene.
In 2018, Gisele published her book Lessons: “My Path to a Meaningful Life.” In the United States, her book was a New York Times bestseller, and in Brazil, it was the best-selling book for more than six months. Her book’s revenues were donated to social and environmental concerns.

In the 2004 version of “Taxi,” Bündchen featured Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon. Bündchen starred as Serena in the 2006 film “The Devil Wears Prada.”

In late 2006, Bündchen began dating New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. On a blind date, they were introduced by a common acquaintance. Bündchen and Brady married in a quiet ceremony at St. Monica’s Catholic Church in Santa Monica, California, on February 26, 2009. The pair conducted a second wedding ceremony in Costa Rica in April 2009. Their daughter was born in 2012, and their boy was born in 2009. Brady’s son with actress Bridget Moynahan is Bündchen’s stepson.

Bündchen has been named a United Nations Environment Programme goodwill ambassador for her work to protect rainforests and promote replanting.
Highlights of Salary
From 2002 until 2017, Bündchen was the highest-paid model on the planet. Gisele Bundchen has earned $500 million from her modeling and endorsement career alone as of this writing. Real estate assets and other non-liquid investments are not included in this statistic. Tom’s total all-in earnings are $230 million at the same period.
Bündchen was named the model who made the greatest money from June 2014 to June 2015 in the 2015 Guinness World Records book.
Purchasing Real Estate
Gisele and Tom decreased the price of their Massachusetts home in early 2020. In 2019, custom-built home in a gated enclave in Brookline went on the market for $40 million. In January 2020, the price of the 5-bedroom, the 7-bathroom property was reduced to $33.9 million.
Tom and Gisele paid $9 million for an undeveloped block of land in LA’s Brentwood district in 2009. They spent an extra $20 million over the next three years building an enormously massive 14,000-square-foot mansion, which they only resided in for a year. Why? Dr. Dre purchased the property from them in May 2014 for a cool $50 million. That’s a really good method to make $21 million.
