She's got the looks of a goddess ... and the bank account of Bill Gates.

Well, not just yet, but thanks to a handful of lucrative deals Gisele Bündchen is on track to become the world's first supermodel billionaire, Forbes reports.

Currently taking in an estimated annual income of $45 million, the world's top-earning model stands to make much more by branding herself via licensing ventures.

Her Grendene footwear line, for instance, sold 25 million pairs in 2010, while her new Gisele Bündchen Brazilian Intimates lingerie line for Hope (which includes a stake in the company) could help Bündchen rake in another $19 million per year.

The Brazilian beauty also designs a fashion range for Brazil's C&A department store in addition to owning the Sejaa Pure Skincare beauty brand.

With Forbes putting the model's total earnings over the last decade past the $250 million mark, the stunning super is just a few sound investments away from achieving billionaire status.

Wow. We knew Tom Brady was lucky, but we had no idea ...
