Hey, Gisele Bundchen -- you know what's cool? A billion dollars.
Bündchen could well be on her way to a billion-dollar empire, making her the first self-made Brazilian woman to do so and perhaps the first supermodel, says Forbes magazine.
The second is her own brand of lingerie, Gisele Bündchen Brazilian Intimates, sold exclusively through a retailer called Hope. The skimpy fare nets her about $30 million annually.
Also consider Sejaa Pure Skincare, which Bündchen owns. The model is reportedly in talks to sell an equity stake of the company.
With Bündchen's earnings of $250 million as well as real estate and personal investments, she could well be closing in on the 10-digit club.
