Even in her early thirties, Gisele Bündchen remains an unparalleled force within the fashion world. As the world's most powerful supermodel, she racks up modeling gigs, endorsement deals, and independent licensing ventures, but still has time to be a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Environmental Program. Bündchen's marriage to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady also writes headlines; after the 2012 Super Bowl, she landed in hot water over critical marks she made about the lackluster performance of Brady's receivers. The veritable endorsement queen, especially in her native Brazil, shills for brands such as Pantene, Esprit, and Versace, and makes a percentage of profits on Ipanema flip-flops and other products bearing her name.
