Candice Swanepoel isn’t a name many people have heard of and it’s not a name most people want to have to attempt to spell either. Candice is one of the newest Victoria’s Secret models and she is a woman you will be hearing a great deal more of in the future. As it is already, she is making $5 million this year — not bad for a girl who is just starting out in the industry.
What would a list full of models be without at least one of them married to a famous sports star. Gisele Bündchen is that woman and she’s currently with Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. Gisele Bündchen is a huge name in the industry and reports suggest she has made $44 million dollars this year. She’s been in the business for a while now, but with a payout like that, she might keep continuing for a while yet. Not because she needs the money, but because she is obviously still in high demand.
Doutzen Kroes is another Dutch supermodel who has the looks to die for. Another Victoria’s Secret model, Doutzen is making $9 million dollars this year. She makes that money from her work with Victoria’s Secret and some other gigs on the side like L’Oréal, Tiffany & Co., Samsung, and Calvin Klein in advertising jobs.
Alessandra Ambrosio has another one of those names you hope you don’t ever have to spell, though her name is a lot more of a common one around the world. People know who Alessandra is because she is one of the most beautiful women in the world. Also a Victoria’s Secret model, Alessandra is one of those few girls who doesn’t look overly skinny and yet is a supermodel. Maybe we are making some ground in the modelling industry, or maybe the scales somehow tip in her favor.
Like many others on our top ten list, Alessandra is making a whopping $5 million this year when it’s all said and done.
One of my personal highlights on TV this year was the fight between Cara Delevingne and some American TV hosts who had her on the show after Cara had just completed a movie she was starring in. Anyway, some people might not know that Cara is not just a movie star but also a supermodel who makes around $9 million dollars for her modelling career during 2015 alone. When you combine the money she is making from the movies, she might just be the highest paid supermodel on the list bar Tom Brady’s wife.
Everyone knows the name Adriana Lima because she currently holds the title for the longest running Victoria’s Secret model ever. Adriana is not in a veteran’s wage though, raking in around $9 million this year still suggests she is very much in her prime. I guess they do it differently in modelling compared to sports.
In case you didn’t guess, Natalia Vodianova is from Russia and she has some of the biggest most natural eyebrows you will ever see. Natalia is a supermodel but also does work for Guerlain cosmetics and Calvin Klein’s Euphoria perfume. As such, she is making a bit more money than the rest of the field thanks to her additional advertising income.
Natalia is making around $7.7 million dollars during 2015.
There are two famous supermodels from Australia. One of them is Jennifer Hawkins and the other one is Miranda Kerr. Miranda was dating Orlando Bloom there for a bit and even had a child. However, they have recently split up. The people down under absolutely adore Miranda while others don’t see what the fuss is about.
Miranda Kerr is reportedly making $5.5 million dollars this year.
You’d be forgiven if you thought you were looking at Tyra banks in this shot; however, this is none other than Joan Smalls. Joan looks very much like a young Tyra and her check book is going to be eerily similar too. Joan is said to be raking in somewhere between $5.5 and $6 million dollars this year.
Lara Stone is a Dutch beauty queen who is reportedly making a cool $5 million dollars during 2015. Lara has great big lips, great big white teeth, a chest larger than the average supermodel and that blank look you get on people’s faces from that side of the world that some people adore — perfect for a model pose.
