  • Gisele Bündchen’s birth date: July 20, 1980.
  • Nationality: Brazil.
  • 17 Million Instagram Followers (November 2020).
  • Gisele Bundchen model earnings for the year of $10 million dollars (2018 last reported date by Forbes magazine).

“Brazilian fashion model Gisele Bundchen has earned over $487 million dollars from fashion modeling since the beginning of this century.”

Gisele Bündchen is arguably one of the most successful models of all time. Over more than 20 years in fashion, she built an unprecedented modeling career. During this time, she became the face of countless global campaigns for the most prominent brands and graced more than a thousand magazine covers, such as Time, Forbes, Rolling Stone, and the top fashion magazines including Vogue, W, Elle, and Harper’s Bazar. She has been photographed by the most prestigious photographers and walked the runaway for the most iconic fashion brands in the world.

Her path was so outstanding that a new term had to be created to define her presence in fashion. Gisele became known as a “Übermodel,” meaning “more than a supermodel.” In the late 90s and early 2000s, Gisele ushered in a big change in the era’s typical stereotype and brought to fashion a new look: a healthy body, curves and a golden tan. She also broke standards when she was able to combine a remarkable fashion career and a bustling commercial career. But her success is not only credited to her beautiful face and sculptural body. Her professionalism, positive attitude and contagious energy have been singled out by many as decisive traits in reaching the top of her career.

Furthermore, Gisele is also recognized for her passion and commitment to the environment. Along with her father in 2008 she created a project called “Agua Limpa” who planted more than 40,000 trees and was able to help the quality of the water in her hometown, Horizontina. In acknowledgment of her dedication to the environment, she was designated a Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations Environment Program in 2009. Since then, she has been working with the UN to draw attention to environmental issues and undertaken field missions in Brazil, Kenya, and the U.S. With a global reach, she uses her notoriety to raise awareness about the importance of protecting our planet and all living beings to make the world a healthier and happier place for her children and all generations to come.

  • Gigi Hadid’s birth date: April 23, 1995.
  • Nationality: United States.
  • Gigi Hadid model earnings for the year of $9.5 million dollars (2018 last reported date by Forbes magazine).

Los Angeles, California native Gigi Hadid is one of today’s reigning models-turned-“social media queens” where she boasts over 35 million Instagram followers. Perhaps most significantly, Steven Meisel photographed Hadid for the 2015 September issue of W magazine (her first mainstream American magazine cover), the 2015 Pirelli Calendar, and the cover of Vogue Italia. She has graced the covers of Vogue’s “Big Four” titles (American, British, French and Italian) as well as countless international editions of the venerable title. In early 2017, Gigi also appeared in a grayscale image shot by Inez and Vinoodh on the inaugural issue of Vogue Arabia donning a jewel-encrusted veil – a nod to her Palestinian roots.

Hadid received her big break courtesy of a Bruce Weber-lensed cover image for CR Fashion Book and a Tom Ford advertising campaign. She also starred in promotions for Versace, Stuart Weitzman, and Max Mara, as well as Balmain alongside her younger sister, Bella Hadid. The eldest Hadid sister also walked in her first-ever Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and co-starred in two widely popular music videos: Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” and Zayn Malik’s “Pillowtalk,” his debut single as a solo artist. Hadid, an accomplished volleyball player and equestrian, was first discovered by Guess co-founder, Paul Marciano, at age two. She appeared in several advertising campaigns for the denim conglomerate, including Baby Guess and Guess Kids, and eventually became the face of Guess Jeans’ signature label in 2012.

Within her first year of modeling as a young adult, Hadid had the great fortune of sitting for such luminaries as Mert & Marcus, Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Sorrenti, Craig McDean and Ellen Von Unwerth. During the recent prêt-à-porter collections seasons, Hadid appeared on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana, Giles, Sonia Rykiel, and Chanel, among others.

Vogue magazine captured Hadid for the relaunch of its website in an homage to Anna Wintour’s first cover for the publication, which sparked significant media attention. Gilles Bensimon photographed Hadid for the cover of the Daily Front Row print edition, and Sebastian Faena captured her for a special Icons feature in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar alongside industry veterans Lauren Hutton, Stephanie Seymour, Joan Smalls, and Lady Gaga. Faena also photographed Hadid for a boudoir-inspired portfolio in Vanity Fair.

The budding supermodel has also taken strides to become a fashion force to be reckoned with. In addition to top model, Hadid boasts both director and designer on her résumé. She directed the music video for the 2015 summer hit “Cake by the Ocean” by DNCE. In 2016, Hadid debuted her first collaborative collection with Tommy Hilfiger for the autumn/winter season. She showed her second collection the following year in LA and the brand announced two more forthcoming collections. Most recently, she designed an exclusive collection with Vogue Eyewear that features 90s-inspired styles.

In addition to her active social media presence, Hadid recently completed a year of undergraduate studies in forensic psychology.

The supermodel has appeared on the covers of French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, as well as several other international editions of Vogue. Additionally, she has graced various other covers, including V Magazine, POP, and Harper’s Bazaar to name a few.

She currently holds contracts with Dior Cosmetics, Calvin Klein, and Bulgari accessories and fragrance. Bella has worked with top photographers including Collier Schorr, Mario Sorrenti, Steven Meisel, Inez & Vinoodh, David Sims, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, Steven Klein, Sølve Sundsbø, and Ezra Petronio. Bella’s campaigns have included Fendi, Versace, Givenchy, Michael Kors, Moschino, Calvin Klein, and Missoni amongst many others.

When she’s not traveling around the globe, Bella enjoys riding horses, spending time with her friends and family, as well as exploring her passion for art and photography.

Joan Smalls was born and raised in Hatillo, Puerto Rico with her two sisters. Growing up Smalls actively pursued modeling by entering local competitions in Puerto Rico and submitting photos to agencies in New York City and Los Angeles. Years later, upon graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the Interamerican University of Puerto Rico, an agent in New York City signed the lithe beauty. Over the years her illustrious career has included walking in over 400 shows for a slew of luxury labels and fronting a series of coveted advertising campaigns for the likes of Chanel, Ralph Lauren, David Yurman, Tom Ford and more. Smalls was also named the face of Estée Lauder cosmetics in 2011, becoming the first Latina model to hold the title.

Off-duty, Smalls channels her passions into important philanthropic efforts. She has been actively involved with Project Sunshine, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing free educational and social programs to children and families living with medical conditions, as well as the United Nations Girl Up Campaign, a global movement for gender equality through leadership development training. Then in June 2020 after seeing the actions taken against the Black community and the strides in the Black Lives Matter movement, Smalls decided to donate 50 percent of her earnings for the remainder of 2020 to Black Lives Matter organizations. The supermodel also took it a step further by founding her own organization, DonateMyWage.org, which highlights 11 organizations within the BLM movement and helps people calculate a donation amount based on their wages. Smalls firmly believes that in order to see true change in any aspect of life, we must all work together and be the change we must see.
