Fashion FTW!

Forbes released its ranking of the world's highest-paid celebrity couples and fashion's own Gisele Bundchen and hubby Tom Brady top the list.

Beating out musical power couple Beyonce and Jay-Z, Bundchen and Brady brought home a combined $76 million between May 2010 and May 2011. While Brady, star quarterback for the New England Patriots, contributed $31 million of the total sum from his new four-year, $72 million contract, it was the supermodel who brought home the big bucks: $45 million in just 12 months.

Fashion reappears in the number four spot, with Victoria Beckham contributing $5 million to her husband's $40 million soccer contract (and many endorsements) for a combined $45 million. Rather surprisingly, in the number five spot are "Twilight"'s Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson, who each landed $20 million for a combined $40 million.

It was already clear that Gisele is the industry's highest-paid model, from her modeling gigs plus a variety of product lines in her native Brazil. But her supermodel-sized salary plus her husband's major league payout propels her to the top of Forbes' list, giving fashion a serious "win" (over vampires, no less).
