Top 10 Richest Supermodels in the World

Gisele Bundchen and Victoria's Secret Models

Ever wonder which supermodel rakes in the most money? I bet you’re thinking it must be one of those glamorously hot angels from Victoria’s Secret right? Well, if that’s what you’re thinking, you’re darn close. The answer is ex-Victoria Secret model Gisele Bundchen (pictured in the middle above). Even after severing ties with Victoria’s Secret because the company refused to meet her demands and increase her $5 million annual salary, the supermodel still rakes in a whopping $33 million a year.

Kate Moss, who comes in second to Bundchen, pulls in $9 million from her various contracts. Victoria’s Secret models Heidi Klum, Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio come next, earning between $6 million and $8 million annually.

What I want to know is how Gisele Bundchen makes five times more than amazingly beautiful Alessandra Ambrosia? Are the folks in the marketing departments blind? Don’t worry Alessandra, if Dolce & Gabbana doesn’t want you to be the face of their products, Kineda will take you!

    I like Alessandra too, but I think Gisele has more of the all-American girl look which is why she lands bigger ad contracts.

    Oh Snap!

  • lilkitty

    Some of the girls on that list are not “super” by any means.

    It must be nice though to make all that from just being beautiful. :p

  • haz

    can’t believe kate moss still earn so much with so many negative news about her relationship with pete

  • David

    “It must be nice though to make all that from just being beautiful. :p” With addition to makeup and photoshop :)

    Adriana and Alessendra should be bumped by one, that list needs a bit of tweaking. That would be nice if you were the photographer taking their pictures. ;)

  • vm3z9

    “It must be nice though to make all that from just being beautiful.”

    Natural beauty is just the same as any other talent. Some people are born to naturally understand and excel in music, art, etc. Talent is just a trait that some people naturally perform better than others or with less effort. For a mechanical skill, people train and study to get better. In terms of beauty, people strive to achieve the same “skill” through exercise, diets, and to a lesser extent, plastic surgery.

    Models are simply using another one of their natural talents to their advantage.

    Although I kind of agree with you that beauty occurs naturally, I don’t agree that it’s a “talent.” Talent is usually something that can be measured, while beauty is very subjective.

  • edison

    hmm…so is talent…
    u may have a so-called ‘talent’ but wifout anyone appreciating it…it’s kinda useless as well…

  • Lenka

    wow… adriana lima have only 6 mil.? r u kiddin’ me?

  • Dexter Kanuto

    Alessandra Ambrosia will or probably reach the salary cap of what Gisele Bundchen is getting.

    Gisele is on the number one podium position because she’s not just beautiful or what others considers her to have that ‘AMERICAN’ look, she also got really rich due to her relationships with Leonardo Di Caprio and pro-surfer Kelly Slater.

  • RNS

    Gisele’s salary has little to do with what is written about her in tabloids. At the level of fashion she works in she’s being signed by the industries top people who, thankfully, are not simple minded enough to base opinion on what they read in gossip columns. Gisele has worked a number of years and is deserving of what she earns.

    Kate is paid so much because she is a fashion icon. Even after she retires completely from shoot work she will earn royalties.

    I see afew missing names this year.

  • Plastic Blinds

  • Amitmall1987

  • whocares

    beauty has minimal to do with modeling it depends on how seriously you take your job and I can see why Gisele is number 1 because she’s the best.

  • ambrosio
