Adriana Lima, Gisele Bundchen are the World's Highest-Paid Models

Since the past dozen years or so, Gisele Bundchen has made oodles of cash from her sheer looks and svelte and lithe physique. While she is barely 34 years of age, she has a dollar dollop of $47 million which is frankly speaking quite a lot of money.

Right behind her though is Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes who earn about $39 million each. Gisele Bundchen earns much more than her hubby too. 

Adriana Lima meanwhile is a bold beauty that is a millionaire to boot. She started off and is still a regular fixture on Victoria’s Secret. As an Angel for the lingerie company she shows her stuff before hungry eyes on the ramps of Paris and Milan. 

Adriana began her journey at the start of the millennium and the 33-year-old model is the longest-running Victoria’s Secret Angel. Furthermore, she is also set to appear in Maybelline and signed a new Desigual contract. 

Way back in 1999 the list of top models that were well-paid included: Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Christy Turlington. And one of the most illustrious of them was none other than the sylvan Kate Moss. 

But that is all old hat by now. Current models include Kate Upton whose sizzling and sinuous body commands a cool $7 million. Miranda Kerr too gets the same amount as Kate. 

But way up there at the top is Gisele Bundchen. She even gave such super sexy girls as Adriana Lima a run for their money. Modeling is one of the most prominent of the display professions such as acting, dancing and the performance arts. 

It is a very visually-oriented field. And while the models get paid in astronomical amounts upfront, they also have to be careful lest they get so much as a single pimple on their faces. 

A simple blemish could destroy the career of a supermodel. So herein lies the conundrum that is modeling. It is a high risk affair and those who undertake it need to watch what they eat and take extra good care of their skin too.   

“The first question from brands these days is immediately, ‘how many followers do they have?’” says Ivan Bart, senior vice president and managing director of IMG models

“Models can be more famous than a lot of celebrities out there because they have such a large following.”

“It [social media] has given models a voice and it’s the next way for advertising to reach an audience,” continued Chris Gay, general manager of The Society Management.

During the last 12 months

  • Gisele Bundchen earned $47 million before taxes and fees
  • Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima earned $39 million each
  • Kate Upton, Kate Moss, Miranda Kerr and Liu Wen also earned $7 million each
  • Alessandra Ambrosio and Hilary Rhoda earned $5 million each.
  • Natalie Vodianova, Carolyn Murphy, Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn earned $4 million each.

The 21 highest-paid models on Forbes list earned a combined of $142 million during the last 12 months.
