World’s top 10 highest paid models 2014

The 10 highest paid models between June 2013 and June 2014 according to Forbes.

The list: 1. Gisele Bundchen ($47 million) – 2-3. Doutzen Kroes, Adrina Lima ($8m) – 4-7. Kate Moss, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr, Liu Wen ($7m) – 8-9. Alessandra Ambrossio, Hilary Noda ($5m) – 10. Nadia Vodianova ($4m)

Gisele B√ľndchen has topped the list since 2007 and by a huge margin these days. The Brazilian is a highly successful businesswoman though, so large part of her income may come from her business instead of usual modelling works.

It’s also worth nothing that Gisele disputed Forbes’s figure late last year, but there’s little doubt that she’s the highest paid supermodel in the world.

Victoria’s Secret Angels Deck the Halls

American premium lingerie brand Victoria’s Secrets has summoned its Angels to wish everyone a Merry Christmas by performing a classic carol. Visually pleasing, but as one of the ladies said… it’s not fair to make a model sings.

Featured in this video are Candice Swanepoel, Miranda Kerr, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lily Aldridge, Lindsay Ellingson and Erin Heatherton.

Victoria’s Secret Angels

Victoria’s Secret Angels are the brand’s contract models. The company introduced the idea in a commercial in 1997, which featured Helena Christensen, Karen Mulder, Daniela Pestova, Stephanie Seymour and Tyra Banks.

The commercial was a huge success, and the Angels began featuring in various advertisements and the brand’s annual fashion show.

There are dozens of Angels past and present. Notable ones (not mentioned above) include Gisele B√ľndchen, Adriana Lima, Heidi Klum and Behati Prinsloo etc.

Not all models who have worked with the brand (catwalks, photo shoots etc.) are classified as Angels though. For example Isabeli Fontana and Angela Lindvall who had walked the Victoria’s Secret fashion show numerous times.
