Some time back we did tell you that Gisele Bündchen tops the Forbes.com’s 2007 list of The Top Earning Models in the World, raking in $33 million. And this same dame is today in news for avoiding her paycheck in the US currency! She is believed to be uncertain about the strength of the dollar. As last week the dollar hit an all-time low against the euro, the British pound, and the Canadian dollar. Preferring Euros over US dollars, a Brazilian weekly magazine Veja reported that when Ms. Bündchen signed a deal to represent Pantene hair products, she demanded that the brand owner, Proctor & Gamble (P&G), paid her in euros. There are also reports that she will be paid in euros for a deal with Dolce & Gabanna to promote its The One fragrance.
However, Ms Bündchen, 27, declined to comment on her pay arrangements.
