Wondering who the highest-paid supermodels in 2013 were? We’ve got the answers. While from the outside, strutting their stuff on the catwalk might seem like a glamorous and easy job, supermodels out there have a tough task on their hands. And this is precisely why most of them have paychecks we would only dream of. But being the best of the best in this glitzy world is even more impressive.
We would like to present you with a list we have compiled of the highest-paid supermodels in 2013, based on the statistics issued earlier this year by Forbes magazine. Their analysis took into account revenues generated between June 2012 and June 2013, either through paid modeling contracts or endorsement campaigns.
For the 7th year in a row, Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen ranks as the highest-paid supermodel in the world. Apart from being the front lady for brands such as David Yurman, Gisele recently scored a contract with Chanel Beauty. This Brazilian lass generated a total income $32 million in just 12 short months, which is about $2 million more than her hubby Tom Brady scored when he signed a new contract with the New England Patriots. Isn’t he one lucky man!
What’s even more impressive about Miss Bundchen’s income is that it is more than 4 times that of our second place entry in this list of the highest-paid supermodels in 2013: Miranda Kerr. The Australian diva was the forefront for Victoria’s Secret this year so you’ve probably seen her face quite a lot in 2013. Even though she has completed her contract with the famous lingerie company, you will also be seeing a lot of Miss Kerr in 2014, thanks to her campaigns with Pirelli Calendar, Qantas, Alex Perry, and Mango. Although she hasn’t yet given Gisele a run for her money, Miranda Kerr’s career is on the rise and we expect she will be making a lot more money in the years to come.
Adriana Lima, another Brazilian bombshell, wraps up our top three highest-paid supermodels in 2013. As one of Victoria Secret’s most popular angels, Miss Lima has had a good year. She scored a $6 million paycheck thanks to her work with the lingerie company, as well as her ads with Donna Karan, Amazon Beverages, Miu Miu, and Blumarine.
Apart from Bundchen, Kerr, and Lima, our countdown also includes big names such as Kate Moss or Lara Stone. Curious to see who else gets the most money for looking absolutely gorgeous? Let’s take a look at the countdown of the highest-paid supermodels in 2013.
