Gisele Bundchen has topped the Forbes Highest Paid Model List every year since 2002, and this year, yet again, she has made more money than any other model in the world.
At 34, she has reportedly brought home an estimated $47 million before taxes and fees in the last 12 months.

So how did she make all of her moolah? Well, along with lucrative contracts for H&M, Chanel, and Carolina Herrera, Gisele also makes money from the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grendene. She also has a line of Hope lingerie – Gisele Bundchen Intimates.
Beauty-wise, she’s the face of Pantene and Oral-B in Brazil.
Second place was between Doutzen Kroes and Adriana Lima, who both earned a cool $8million. Both of these supermodels are well known for their work with Victoria’s Secret.
Our Kate Moss came in third with $7million – and for someone who gets to play as well as work, we think that’s pretty good going.
Kate Upton was a newcomer of the list, thanks to her $7million in the bank. It’s been a great year for the actress and model, just recently she was announced as the face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics.
Next up it’s Miranda Kerr ($7million), who has made more headlines thanks to her personal life than her campaign pictures but, still strong. Her paycheck was boosted thanks to her cosmetics range Kora Organics which she launched in 2009.
Liu Wen was next on the list – she was the first Chinese model to walk the Victoria’s Secret fashion show and the 26-year-old is HUGE in China.
Coming in with $5million is Alessandra Ambrosio. Yes, surprise surprise, it’s another Victoria’s Secret millionaire. The 33-year-old Brazilian mother of two adds to her Angel income with PINKO and H&M contracts, and she also has her own clothing line with Planet Blue.
As well as Kate Upton, there are a few other newcomers to the highest-paid models list. One of which is 22-year-old Karlie Kloss. The Victoria’s Secret Angel was discovered in a charity fashion show, and now models for the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Coach and Neiman Marcus. Her estimated income is a sweet $4million.
Also raking in $4million is our very own Jourdan Dunn, who joins the list thanks to lucrative cosmetics signings with Maybelline and Burberry English Rose Makeup.
We’re quite surprised by Cara Delevingne’s income on the list – $3.5million – granted, it’s a lot of money, but Cara is everywhere, and has been for over a year now.
As well as walking countless catwalks, she is the face of Burberry beauty and YSL’s cosmetics campaign, and she also models for DKNY, Mulberry and La Perla.
You better star upping those rates, Miss Delevingne.
