Best paid top models of the world

Bethann Hardison  “The model has become a hanger.”


We considered them old-fashioned, dumped after their 25th anniversary. On the contrary, the top models are still trendy and stylish attracting very appealing and lucrative contracts.

Here are the best paid top models of the world, and seemingly Gisele Bündchen is the highest paid model with an estimated fortune of $150 million, so unfair! I am 30 year old and I do not earned half of what she does.

To be honest, I am kind of surprised not seeing Tyra Banks as she makes a lot of money with her American next top model show. Anyway here are the most successful “hangers” of the industry.


  1. Gisele Bündchen, 30, she has been the highest-paid model in the world and the sixteenth richest woman in the entertainment industry since 2004. With an estimated $150 million fortune, she has just launched her own lingerie brand Gisele Bündchen Brazilian Intimates.
  2. Heidi Klum, 37, model, actress, television host, businesswoman, fashion designer, television producer and occasional singer.  Busy girl!
  3. Kate Moss,  37, model, actress,fashion designer for our British TopShop. 
  4. Adriana Lima,  29, is a Brazilian model, best known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel since 2000, and as a spokesmodel for Maybelline cosmetics from 2003 to 2009. 
  5. Alessandra  Ambrósio is a Brazilian model. Described by Tyra Banks as “the future of  the modeling world”, Ambrosio is best known for her work with Victoria’s Secret and  was chosen as the first spokesmodel for the company’s “PINK” line. Ambrosio is currently one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels and the former face of the UK company Next. She appeared in advertisements for brands like Revlon, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, and Ralph Lauren, as well as the Pirelli Calendar. She has walked the catwalks for designers such as Prada, Chanel, and Oscar de la Renta. She has appeared in numerous international magazine covers, including Cosmopolitan, Elle, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, Ocean Drive, Vogue and the only model to appear on the cover of Glamour in the United States in 2006.

About frenchychic

Born and raised in Paris, I am a Marketing and Sales professional. And now, I am a blogger! I used to be Australian, German and French (Parisian) and now a Londoner lady since February 2010. I love everything about France: the food, the wine, the fragrances, the designers, the music and our attitude, energy & character. My blog is not all about cosmetics nor fashion, is about what is happening in the world in a French perspective: how do we think? What do we think? Why do we thing like this? And what do we French think about YOU strangers from all over the world! It was my passion for arts, culture, international events & news, fashion that drove me into creating La French Attitude and I love every minute of it and I hope you too! Enjoy! Sté xxx
