Haute Style: Model Money Makers

Forbes recently released their annual list of the world’s top-earning models with 29-year-old Brazilian Gisele Bundchen claiming the number one spot, bringing in an estimated $25 million in the past year. Aside from having a new baby, the supermodel kept busy starring in campaigns for True Religion jeans, Dolce & Gabbana, as well as launching her own skin care line and lucrative sandals brand (Ipanema by Gisele). Second place went to the lovely Heidi Klum who took in $16 million, mostly due to her continued success with the Project Runway series. And in the surprising third spot is Kate Moss, who despite having a rough year personally, still made $9 million, holding contracts with Versace, Longchamp, David Yurman, and Topshop. Rounding out the Top 10 on the list are Doutzen Kroes, Adriana Lima, Natalia Vodianova, Alessandra Ambrosio, Daria Werbowy, Miranda Kerr, and Carolyn Murphy.
