Gisele Bündchen might have another Bünd in the oven, but that doesn't stop the money from rolling in. Forbes has published their annual highest-paid super model list, and Gisele tops it (again). Of the rest of the top 10 earners, Victoria's Secret models make up the majority of the list. Now, let's compare how much we make to how they make...

1. Gisele Bündchen: $45 million (a full $20 mill more than she made in 2010)
2. Kate Moss: $9.2 million
3. Natalia Vodianova: $8.6 million
4. Adriana Lima: $7.3 million
5. Doutzen Kroes: $6.9 million
