Supermodels Earn The Bucks

February 6th, 2006 // 10 Comments

It pays to be a supermodel these days. Gisele Bundchen is the highest paid model these days, taking in $15.2 million in 2005. Not too shabby for posing and walking. What’s more astounding, is that Gisele earned the majority of her cash from modeling and contracts and not from television shows, book deals or clothing lines.

1. Gisele Bundchen – $15.2 million
2. Heidi Klum – $7.5 million
3. Tyra Banks – $6 million
4. Kate Moss – $5 million
5. Adrianna Lima – $4.5 million

The World’s Best-Paid Supermodels [Forbes]

    How much do the America’s Top Model Contestant Winner make per year? It’s amazing what good genes can do for one’s bank book.

    Hope their as nice on the inside as they are on the outside. Nothing worse then an ugly beautiful person.

    Anybody know what younger models, like Gemma Ward (super skinny but really beautiful) and Lily Cole (super skinny but doable) make?

    You know they’re not getting that kind of money for just modeling, they’re sucking someone off….

  4. Wow.. that all in money?

    I’m amazed the ugly one makes the most. I don’t care what anyone says Gisele is 1 ugly ass woman! I suppose for models it’s more about the body though. Oh and Kate Moss is another ugly one but see what I know because they are making the bank.

    Tyra Banks would have thought she would have banked more do to TV. She’s a beautiful woman though and Adrianna Lima, those eyes can melt any guys heart.

    Gisele ugly?! What makes you think that? She is my favorite out of all of them- cute personality too.

    Kate Moss is an unusual success in my opinion, she’s short by model standards and has a rather odd nose…

    Bestdress, I agree. Gisele looks like a tranny.

    Hard-On is right, there’s more going on than just changing into different outfits. The real “work” is done when they strip down for action on office couches, conference tables, backseats of limo’s, hotel & motel rooms, linen closets, restrooms, kitchens, etc.

    Actually met Gissele twice under circumstances that I shall not name but she does look alot more femine in person than on pictures. Actually looked real good and pretty but way to skinny to be sexy.
