New York, NY, United States (AHN Entertainment) – Forbes magazine published its list of the highest-earning supermodels. The top-three earners remain the same, but there have been some shake-ups elsewhere on the list.
Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Kate Moss retain the top three spots, however, after them, there are some new entries. For instance, even though Bundchen and Klum have had kids and both taken some time off, two models who took time off to have babies have dropped off the list altogether.
Bundchen tops the list with a hefty $45 million per year; Klum comes in second on the list with $20 million, and Kate Moss is third with $13.5 million. Despite unveiling her final collection for Topshop in the past year, Moss ensured her earnings were still significant by adding a lucrative Dior beauty campaign to her CV.
Adriana Lima held steady at the number four spot on the list again with $8 million per year. Fellow Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio comes in at number five with $5 million; Daria Werbowy is at number six with $4.5 million; and Lara Stone, a newcomer to the list, is at number seven on the list, tied at $4.5 million. Stone replaced fellow Dutch model (and another Victoria’s Secret model) Doutzen Kroes in the list after she took time off this year to have her son, Phyllon.
Carolyn Murphy is the only American on the list, and also ties for the oldest at 37 (same age as Kate Moss). Murphy is number eight on the list with $4.3 million. Natalia Vodianova is number nine on the list with $4 million, and Candice Swanepol – another newbie to the list – finishes in the number 10 spot with $2 million. The Victoria’s Secret Angel earned her place on the list at the cost of her fellow Angel Miranda Kerr, who took time off to have a baby, too.
