Gisele Bundchen has topped the list of highest-earning models for the seventh year running. According to Forbes magazine, the supermodel took home $42 million (£27 million) in the space of a year - thanks to lucrative endorsement deals with H&M, Chanel, Pantene and David Yurman, as well as a stake in Brazilian footwear company Grendene and her own, increasingly profitable, lingerie label.
And it doesn't look as though anyone will overtake her any time soon, so large is the gap between her earnings and those of the second-placed Miranda Kerr.
Interestingly, eight out of the top 10 models are all either currently Victoria's Secret Angels or have modelled for the lingerie label in the past - showing that the brand's international exposure still remains hugely profitable for its model cast. And next year? Forbes predicts that Karlie Kloss and Kate Upton could make their top 10 debut, while VS regulars Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio, who both dropped off the list this year, are equally likely to make a comeback.
Here is the full list
Hilary RhodaI am a bit surprised that I didn't find my fav Anja Rubik up there. I would assume that Cara Delevinge will be there to. Both of them you can see in so many advertisements. Also I was more than sure that Kate Moss will be at the top. I was really surprised
Who would be your top ten?
Have a great weekend
