Forbes' List of the World's Highest-Paid Models, 2013

The World's Highest-Paid Models, 2013: Gisele's Earnings Down, Kerr's Are Up


Success as a model requires flawless genes and a lot of luck. The 10 women on FORBES’ list of highest-paid models have something else, too: business sense


forbes.com

Take Gisele BŁndchen, who leads the pack for the seventh year in a row with $42 million in earnings, seven times as much as second-place Miranda Kerr (and a bit more than quarterback husband Tom Brady’s $38.3 million).

BŁndchen’s earnings may be off $3 million from last year’s total, but the 33-year-old Brazilian has enjoyed a sharp rise in fortune since 2009, when she led the list with $25 million. This is in part due to her successful partnership with Grendene, the Brazilian footwear company, in which she owns a stake.

Since 2012, Grendane’s shares have more than doubled, pushing its valuation to a five-year high. The supermodel mom makes millions from her eco-friendly cosmetics company, Sejaa, and multi-year contracts with international campaigns like Pantene, Oral-B and Sky HDTV.

Our earnings estimates are based on editorial shoots, independent licensing ventures, spokesperson gigs and contracts from beauty and fashion companies from June 2012 to June 2013.

Kerr pulled in $7.2 million in the 12 months ending in June, leaping up the rankings from No. 7 last year, when she earned $4 million. The Australian model first strapped on a pair of Victoria’s Angels wings in 2007. Now, at 30, she’s expanded her portfolio with contracts with Quantas, David Jones and Mango. Like BŁndchen and many other models on our list, Kerr is trying to cash in on booming markets outside of the States. In Asia, the launch of her skincare line, Kora, and deals to pitch Lipton Tea and P&G detergent brand Bold helped her move up our list this year.

“Because international exposure is so much greater in value, there’s been this sudden shift in the industry where models are all finding ways to expand their brands and partnerships. It’s a smart business model for them,” says Ed Razek, president and chief marketing office of Limited Brands, Victoria’s Secret’s parent company.

Victoria’s Secret still cultivates much of the top echelon of talent in the modeling business. Six of the 10 women on this year’s list either have Angel contracts, or have appeared in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Once known for handing out outsized contracts, Victoria’s Secret has ratcheted back over the years, and multi-year agreements have become a rarity.

“Our contracts are based on the way senior business leaders are paid, which is on incentive compensation. So it’s in the best interest of our business, and in the best interest of these models to perform at the highest level possible that they possibly can,” said Razek.

To be sure, the lingerie retailer isn’t struggling in the least bit. In spring of 2012, Victoria’s Secret reported $542 million in operating income, and $655 million in the fall, totaling $1.2 billion (which was 70% of Limited Brands’ $1.7 billion in operating income). The company pays models less simply because it can — the prestige of being an Angel is rich compensation by itself. Similarly, gigs with hot names like Prada or Fendi don’t pay much, but models can cash in by landing other campaigns through the increased exposure.

Adriana Lima‘s earnings dropped from $7.3 million last year to $6 million, but she still moved up one spot in our ranking to No. 3. Lima has been with Victoria’s Secret since 2000, making her the longest-running Angel. No surprise, her supermodel seniority comes with a super-sized deal, and it’s more lucrative than any other current modeling contract in the company. Most of Lima’s earnings come from her deal with the lingerie retailer.

Of course, an Angel contract isn’t the be-all-and-end-all of fashion. The wingless Kate Moss (No. 7) still managed to pull in $5.7 million, though she took a $3.5 million plunge from last year, when she ranked second. But at 39, the neo-hippie waif can still rock the bad-girl image while maintaining her title as fashion’s most in-demand supermodel, holding multi-year Vogue eyewear contract, deals with Versace and Rimmel. Moss will also be posing nude for Playboy to celebrate her 40th birthday, according to reports.

“Kate still has enormous international presence,” said Ivan Bart, senior vice president and managing director of IMG models, the New York-based modeling agency that represents Moss. “She’s still doing a lot of modeling and business around the world, and she’s got a number of English and European associations.”

Some new faces on the list this year are Liu Wen and Joan Small. Wen (No. 5), who hails from China, raked in $4.3 million over the past year through deals with blue-chip brands Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss and Estťe Lauder. The 25-year-old turned heads when she became the first Chinese model to walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. But what truly makes Wen watch-worthy is her potential to cash in on her home country’s exploding fashion market, which is expected to triple in size to $200 billion by 2020.

The Puerto Rican model Smalls (No. 8) became the first Latina ambassador for Estťe Lauder in 2010 and has since filled her client list with big names: Victoria’s Secret, H&M, Fendi and Givenchy. “A model of color selling luxury products makes a huge statement. Increasingly, brands are trying to connect with consumers by incorporating diversity into their image, and someone like Joan relates well to the key demographics that advertisers really want to reach,” said Bart, whose agency also represents Smalls.

Some likely candidates to make the list next year: Karlie Kloss, the newest addition to Victoria’s Secret’s lineup, and Kate Upton, the commercial-turned-editorial bombshell who Vogue recently deemed “the hottest supermodel on Earth.” Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio, who dropped off the list this year, could make a comeback.

And Alessandra is no where to be found despite contracts with VS, Almacenes Exito, P&G, KIO networks, etc. etc.

This doesn't sound right at all.

Doutzen not being on the list stuck out to me. Alessandra, who is with DNA too, not being on the list also stuck out to me, although I can see her just missing the cut off. Even though Hilary got a few campaigns, I also was a little surprised to see her make the list and not Constance, and Constance is also a DNA model.

IMG definitely cooperates with them and provides them information, all but three models on the list are IMG models. Granted IMG is a powerhouse but I still think that it is skewed a little towards them.

Didn't she also work with Colcci in the past year, or no?

No, because her samsung & emilio pucci campaigns are for fall/winter 2013
-------------------
Forbes 2012 list (June 2011 to June 2012 )
5. Doutzen Kroes
Made: $6.9 million
thanks to her contracts with Victoria's Secret, L'Oreal and Tiffany & Co.

june 2012 - june 2013 she still owned those 3 huge contracts and she scored even many more campaigns
Including her huge contracts with H&M & Repeat cashmere (worth millions)
+ campaigns for: equipment + miu miu + bruno magli

How on earth did they kick her out of that list?!

Not to mention Karlie Kloss, especially with all her side projects.

Joan Smalls and Liu Wen are the odd ones out in this list. I really doubt they make so much money, and I definitely doubt they make more money then some of the models left out.

What I think, is that Forbes wanted a "fresh" list, because honestly the list is practically the same every year.
I'm highly doubting the accuracy of this year's list.

This list is quite funny to be honest. I can't believe Natalia, Doutzen or Alessandra aren't there, also Kate Upton to be honest. Natalia Vodianova last year was the 3rd most paid model in the world with 8,6 Million and this year she hadn't at least $3,2 million? ahahah quite funny
I agree with @anlabe32 about Forbes wanting a fresh list because there aren't other reasons on how fake is this list
