The World's 20 Richest Models
Quote:
Kate Moss to Heidi Klum: The world's 20 richest models worth - and they're worth £579 million between them

Instead of fruitlessly endeavouring to curb the excesses of fat-cat pay, perhaps David Cameron and Vince Cable should turn their attention to the world of modelling.

Twenty-two years since Linda Evangelista said, ĎWe donít wake up for less than $10,000 a dayí, the sums earned by supermodels now rival the biggest of bankersí bonuses.

The moneyís in endorsements. Kate Moss has been the face of Rimmel, Balmain, Agent Provocateur, H&M and Burberry (the last two dropped her after her 2005 cocaine scandal), designed her own collections for Topshop in 2007-10 and is currently the face of Mango.

Tyra Banksí £57 million reflects her role as executive producer of Americaís Next Top Model, a worldwide TV franchise.

So why is Leonardo DiCaprioís former girlfriend Gisele BŁndchen at the top of the list? Flip-flops.

Her Ipanema line of sandals has been growing since 2001, with over 250 million pairs sold in 2010. She also has a skincare line, Sejaa, and her land holdings in Brazil include a hotel.

There is one (former) model whose £743 million fortune dwarfs those of all the others put together. Her name? Slavica Ecclestone. Her ex-husband may disagree that this amount constitutes earnings. So we left her out.

1. Gisele BŁndchen (£96m, Brazilian)
2. Tyra Banks (£57m, American)
3. Christie Brinkley (£51m, American)
4. Kate Moss (£50m, British)
5. Heidi Klum (£45m, German)
6. Elle Macpherson (£38m, Australian)
7. Claudia Schiffer (£35m, German)
8. Naomi Campbell (£31m, British)
9. Milla Jovovich (£23m, Ukrainian)
10. Adriana Lima (£22m, Brazilian)
11. Daria Werbowy (£19m, Ukrainian)
12. Helena Christensen (£18m, Danish)
13. Natalia Vodianova (£15m, Russian)
14. Doutzen Kroes (£13m, Dutch)
15. Eva Herzigova (£13m, Czech)
16. Christy Turlington (£11m, American)
17. Linda Evangelista (£11m, Canadian)
18. Cindy Crawford (£11m, American)
19. Carolyn Murphy (£10m, American)
20. Stephanie Seymour (£10m, American)

A few surprises on that list. Why is Christie Brinkley believed to have made so much more money than Cindy Crawford? And very interesting that Daria W and Doutzen are so high up on that list, their cosmetics contracts must be paying really well!

wow its unbeliavable that Daria and Natalia are wealthier than Cindy Christy or Linda! Especially Cindy considering that she has alot of projects besides modeling
Also i would have expected to see Karolina kurkova or Mini Anden who have both ventured outside modelling into movies and TV but I guess the lack of a beauty contract reduces their earnings significantly

I am quite suprised to see Linda/Cindy/Christy at the bottom... they've been getting big campaigns... well not Cindy but she had some big covers... but as it seems High Fashion is not as well paid as more commercial brands... but Linda is the face of L'oreal... anyway...

where did they come up with the statistics is what I'd like to know. They didn't even say (or did they?) At least with Forbes they give a roundabout how they came up with their numbers to make it more believable.

I think Cindy would be much higher. She has Meaningful Beauty,Cindy Crawford Home,Cindy Crawford Style and official ambassador for Omega watches for 15 years. hmm. Plus Cindy still models. She does alot of hair/shoe advertising still.
