Gisele Bündchen has been at Forbes' Top 100 Most Powerful Women List since 2010, but that was not the case this year.

The Brazilian supermodel was one of the 19 women edged out of Forbes magazine's 12th annual list, Fox News Latino reported. Other than Bündchen, other women removed from the list are pop singer Lady GaGa, FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg, film producer Amy Pascal, and Australian businesswoman Gail Kelly.

Since her name became popular in the modeling industry, Bündchen had a consistent position in Forbes' ranking. According to Fox News Latino, the 34-year-old model ranked at 72nd place in the list in 2010, 83rd in 2011, 60th in 2012, 95th in 2013, and 89th in 2014. However, Bündchen still remains as Forbes' highest paid supermodel, a position the bombshell holds for eight years in a row.

Forbes noted that Bündchen earned $47 million in 2014 for her lucrative deals with esteemed brands such as H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Oral-B, and Pantene hair products. She also designs jelly sandals for Brazilian shoe company Grendene and has a lingerie line for Hope named Gisele Bündchen Intimates.

The model also serves as the Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Environment Programme and is one of the board of directors for Rainforest Alliance, a non-profit organization promoting biodiversity conservation and sustainability, Forbes added.

Last April, Bündchen, who is married to NFL player Tom Brady, retired from the runway and marked her final catwalk appearance for luxury label Colcci at the São Paulo Fashion Week held in Brazil, E! News wrote.

Heading Forbes' 100 Most Powerful Women List for the fifth consecutive year is German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Daily Mail reported. She was followed by U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and philanthropist Melinda Gates, respectively. Ranking at the 41st spot, Queen Elizabeth II (aged 89) is the oldest person in the list while 25-year-old singer Taylor Swift is the youngest, placing at no. 64.

As for Hispanic representation, Latinas who made it to Forbes' list this year are current President of Brazil Dilma Rousseff (No. 7), with Argentina President Christina Fernandez placing at No. 16 and Chilean President Michelle Bachelet coming in at No. 27, Fox News Latino added.

Colombians Sofia Vergara and Shakira are also on the list for the third year in a row. The "Modern Family" star ranked at No. 57 while the "Hips Don't Lie" singer bagged the 81st spot, the news outlet wrote. Both Vergara and Shakira have been on the list since 2012.

Forbes' pick of their 100 most influential women depended on money, media, impact, and spheres of influence, Daily Mail wrote. These powerful women's authorities are based "on them being billionaires or involved in the worlds of business, finance, celebrity/entertainment, media, politics, philanthropists, non-governmental organizations, and technology," the news outlet further explained.
