Once the business starts up, the sky is the only limit – at least in the case of the Brazilian supermodel, Gisele Bündchen who – just like last year – has topped the list of the highest-earning models for the seventh year running, as stated on Vogue. According to Forbes magazine, the supermodel takes in about $42 million in a single year – thank to her collaboration with H&M, Chanel, Pantene and David Yurman, as well as a stake in the Brazilian footwear company Grendene and her own, increasingly profitable, lingerie label. The second place is taken by Kate Moss who remained one of the biggest style-icons over almost the past two decades, lately collaborating with Longchamp, Mango, Rimmel, and Vogue Eyewear. The list continues with Russian Natalia Vodianova, the lately featured Heidi Klum and everybody’s beauty-icon Adriana Lima or the Australian model Miranda Kerr thank to her Kora Organics beauty line, as well as deals with Qantas, David Jones and Mango. There is something in common in the top then richest models, and that’s nothing else but the fact as they are either currently Victoria’s Secret Angels or have modelled for the lingerie label in the past. At this level, things go far more deeper than things like beauty or luck; it’s all about talent, business, personality; it’s about the ones who has become a staple at once for all by being blessed with rare kind of genes.
