Forbes Magazine has released its annual list of the highest-paid models in the world yet again -- take a look!

Not only are they drop-dead gorgeous, they're wealthy beyond our wildest dreams.

Check out which catwalk queens have made it to Forbes Magazine's yearly round-up of the richest women in the modelling business, which represents their earnings made from June 2010 to July 2011.

1. Gisele Bundchen

Looks like no one can topple the Brazilian hottie, 30, from the top spot.

This is the third year running in which she has taken the crown, with nearly double the earnings she made previously -- Gisele amassed a whopping $45 million this time around, as compared to $25 million in 2010.
