Gisele Bundchen continues to out-earn every supermodel in the world.

The 36-year-old mother of two tops Forbes' list of the world's highest-paid models, earning a whopping $30.5 million -- that's $20 million more than the number two highest-earning model, Adriana Lima.

Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss tied for third place, grossing $10 million, while Jenner's pal Gigi Hadid rounded out the top five list, earning $9 million, tying with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Kloss doubled her earnings since 2015, and worked on more campaigns than any other model on the list. Meanwhile, Jenner is the biggest gainer year over year, with an earnings increase of 150 percent.

According to Forbes, the top 20 highest-paid models earned a total of $154 million between June 1, 2015, and June 1, 2016, before fees and taxes, and have close to 200 million Instagram followers combined.

She did, however, return to the catwalk during the Summer Olympic celebrations in her home country of Brazil. Here's a look at her epic return to the runway:
