It appears as though it will take a lot to remove Gisele Bundchen from her perch.

The 33-year-old supermodel leads Forbes' list of top-earning models for the seventh consecutive year, raking in an estimated $42 million between June 2012 and June 2013.

She continues to make money from her cosmetic company, Sejaa, in addition to campaigns with Pantene, Oral-B and Sky HDTV. Although Tom Brady's wife is down by $3 million from the previous Forbes list, she's still far and away the top-earning model, making six times more than Miranda Kerr, who came in second with $7.2 million. That's a jump for Kerr, who last year landed in seventh place. Adriana Lima is not far behind with $6 million, followed by Kate Moss ($5.7 million) and Liu Wen ($4.3 million).

Forbes says Victoria's Secret still holds a lot of weight in the modeling business, as 6 out the 10 women on the tally either have Angel contracts, or have appeared in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

Earning estimates come from editorial shoots, licensing ventures, spokesperson gigs and contracts.
