Business magazine Forbes has revealed a ranking of the world’s highest paid models. The list is released annually and comprises the names of 21 models ordered according to their earnings.
Once again, supermodel Gisele Bundchen heads the ranking, with a paycheck that is said to amount to $47 million for the past year. Runners up include a host of Victoria Secret models, amongst which Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima (the model who’s walked for Victoria Secret the longest) and Liu Wen (the first Chinese Angel). The list also welcomes new names such as model and actress Kate Upton, as well as the inseparable friends Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne who both feature in the Balmain AW14 campaign.

Kate Moss might be the eldest on the list, but that hasn’t stopped her earning $7 million over the past year, putting her in fourth place. And at the other end of the age scale, 20-year old Lindsey Wixon, who reportedly earns $3 million, counts as the youngest of the lot.
Altogether, the 21 models made a total sum of $142 million from June 2013 to June 2014. Suffice to say, these women are not simply amongst the most beautiful in the world, but are also to be counted amongst the most successful.
