is officially the world's best-paid supermodel. The Brazilian beauty made a massive $35 million in 2009 despite taking a break to have a baby.

The 29 years old took some time off from the catwalk last year to give birth to her first child, baby Benjamin, with her sports star husband in December 2009. But even though the pregnancy left the supermodel sidelined for much of the year, Bundchen still managed to outperform her catwalk rivals in the financial stakes - earning a massive $35 million for her modelling duties.

The massive pay cheque puts her top of a list of the world's best paid models, pushing British beauty , who made $7.5 million, into second place. Bundchen's fellow Brazilian, and Victoria's Secret angel was third in the list by Walletpop.co.uk, followed by another face of the famous underwear brand, , in fourth. The top five is rounded out by Czech model , who also took time off to have a baby in October 2009.
