ZARZAR MODELS recently released the latest list of the highest paid models in the world (the world’s highest paid models). The latest list of the highest paid models in the fashion modeling industry (the top earning models in the world) covers all model earnings for the past 12 months (from June 2016 to June 2017) and are approximate based on the leading industry sources including Forbes magazine (one of the most prestigious financial magazines in the world and a leader in financial data analysis). All amounts are in United States Dollars.

The Highest Paid Models In The World – The World’s Highest Paid Models For 2017

The 10 beautiful fashion models on this year’s highest paid models list earned a combined $109.5 million dollars (before modeling agency fees and taxes) over the past 12 months proving that flawless genes and stellar business acumen are a powerful combination that can make you very wealthy. Model earnings are based on modeling income from cosmetics, fragrance, and other important modeling agency contracts (estimates are sourced from interviews with numerous modeling agency managers, agents, and brand executives).

1. Kendall Jenner (United States) with model earnings for the year of $22 million dollars.

The 22 year old supermodel (born in Los Angeles, California) has over 86 million Instagram followers, more than double any other model on the list. Kendall Jenner has turned digital fame into millions of dollars, advertising for cosmetics giant Estée Lauder, lingerie brand La Perla and sneaker maker Adidas, among other world class fashion brands. Non-modeling money from her family’s E! reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, social media endorsements, and her Kendall + Kylie clothing line added to her total earnings.

2. Gisele Bundchen (Brazil) with model earnings for the year of $17.5 million dollars.

Though Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen retired from the fashion runway in 2015, the 37 year old fashion model still makes millions of dollars from modeling contracts including a lucrative fragrance deal with Carolina Herrera, plus advertisements for Arezzo shoes and Vivara jewelry in her native Brazil. It is important to know that even though Gisele Bundchen’s modeling earnings have declined significantly since she reached the peak of her fashion modeling career (Gisele Bundchen earned approximately $47 million dollars in 2014), she has appeared on more than 1,200 magazine covers in her two decade-long fashion modeling career in addition to earning more money than any other model in the world every single year between 2002 and 2016. Thus, 2017 marked the end of Gisele Bundchen’s 15 year reign as the highest paid model in the world (the world’s highest paid model).

“Brazilian fashion model Gisele Bundchen has earned over $477.5 million from fashion modeling since the beginning of this century.”

5. Gigi Hadid (United States) with model earnings for the year of $9.5 million dollars.

Thanks to her 38 million Instagram followers, the 22 year old fashion model (born in Los Angeles, California) can command top dollars from brands eager to reach her young fans. A selling point herself, Gigi Hadid has her own collections with makeup giant Maybelline, Vogue eyewear, and Tommy Hilfiger. With her sister Bella Hadid, the Hadid sisters are the first siblings to both be included on the lists of the highest paid models in the world (the world’s highest paid models).

7. Karlie Kloss (United States) with model earnings for the year of $9 million dollars.

At just 25, the St. Louis native (Karlie Kloss was born in Chicago, Illinois) has been on the cover of Vogue’s various editions 36 times. Her current modeling contracts include lucrative deals with companies such as Adidas, Swarovski, and Express. Karlie Kloss is the founder of Kode With Klossy, an education nonprofit that has taught more than 500 women and girls the basics of computer programming and software development. Karlie Kloss also runs a YouTube channel and hosts a talk show on Freeform (formerly known as ABC Family, which is owned by the Walt Disney Company).

Highlights From The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: A Night To Remember With The Most Beautiful And Famous Fashion Models In The World | Victoria’s Secret Models Exclusive Interviews Backstage

The Beautiful Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Models Modeling In Shanghai China.

2017 will be remembered as the year that Victoria’s Secret expanded into China by opening its first full store in Shanghai with additional stores later opening in Chengdu and Beijing. Victoria’s Secret already has 26 Victoria’s Secret Beauty & Accessory stores in China plus another five in Hong Kong (these Victoria’s Secret Beauty & Accessory stores that already exist in China are small shops focused on beauty products and accessories with no bras or panties being sold). China is expected to equal if not exceed the United States in Victoria’s Secret sales in the long term, and because of this huge potential Victoria’s Secret parent company L Brands (NYSE: LB) decided that having a fashion show in China would make the world take notice of their aspirations for global expansion, specially into the Asian markets.

At one point, having a fashion show in China must have seemed like a good idea, maybe the best of all ideas. After all, Victoria’s Secret (the world’s #1 lingerie brand) was making a major push to expand its business around the world, so having the 2017 Victoria’s Secret fashion show in Shanghai China made perfect sense, and asking what could possibly go wrong by having the world’s most famous and prestigious fashion show in China might have seemed absurd, or even borderline ridiculous. However, as it turned out, basically many things went wrong in China.

Above: Highlights From The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: Leslie Odom Jr Performs “Forever Young” And “Winter Song” With Classical Pianist Yundi Li At The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.

Broadway star Leslie Odom Jr. and classical pianist Yundi Li light up the Victoria’s Secret fashion runway in Shanghai China as they perform “Forever Young” and “Winter Song” while the extremely beautiful Victoria’s Secret Angels walk down the Victoria’s Secret fashion runway.

Singing superstar Katy Perry, scheduled to be a performer, was reportedly denied a visa by the Chinese government, and many models scheduled to make appearances ran into similar issues. Making things worse, it was reported that the Victoria’s Secret team in Shanghai China was prohibited from sending out press releases until they had been reviewed by the government. Then celebrities and fashion journalists assigned to cover the event had to pull out when they weren’t given Chinese visas.

Soon, even supermodels and famous models were getting their Chinese visas denied. American fashion model Gigi Hadid (who has almost 40 million Instagram followers), who was scheduled to appear at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, was reportedly denied a visa. Soon after, Russian and Ukrainian Victoria’s Secret models were denied entry into China without any explanation.

Even relatively simple tasks turned into a struggle. It was even reported that Chinese authorities scrutinized television crews trying to film the Victoria’s Secret models outside Shanghai’s Mercedes-Benz Arena as though they were national security threats. Talk about being paranoid (a fashion show filled with the world’s most beautiful women walking in sexy lingerie is probably the furthest thing from politically sensitive material that one could possibly imagine).

Above: Highlights From The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: The 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Featuring Victoria’s Secret Supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio.

To be fair, the 2017 Victoria’s Secret fashion show was a beautiful fashion show featuring famous singers singing while the world’s most beautiful women walked down the runway. Highlights of the 2017 Victoria’s Secret fashion show included supermodel Karlie Kloss (who went platinum blonde) making her big return in Shanghai after taking a break from working with the brand and supermodel Candice Swanepoel doing the same after sitting out last year after having her baby son.

Harry Styles (originally a member of the famous British boy band One Direction), Miguel, Yundi Li, and Jane Zhang performed while the extremely beautiful Victoria’s Secret models walked on the runway. Then there were the Balmain outfits designed by Olivier Rousteing (a famous French fashion designer and the creative director of Balmain), and of course, no Victoria’s Secret fashion show would be complete without the Fantasy Bra (made from diamonds and gems worth millions of dollars) and worn this year by Brazilian fashion model Lais Ribeiro.

It’s the time of year where a new class of Victoria’s Secret Angels gets its wings. We may be a few weeks away from the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but preparations are well underway for the most extravagant, glittery catwalk of them all. (And, after months of secrecy, the brand finally confirmed and Instagram their models will hit the runway in Shanghai, China.)
It hasn’t been all smooth sailing, though: Despite having been confirmed to walk the show this year, several models have reportedly run into trouble securing their visas to travel to China. Gigi Hadid confirmed this week that she’d have to bow out of the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show; models Julia Belyakova, Kate Grigorieva, Irina Sharipova, and Dasha Khlystun allegedly were denied the required paperwork, too.
Scroll down to see every model confirmed so far, from seasoned Angels to newcomers.

Liu Wen (born on January 27, 1988) is an extremely famous Chinese fashion model. Liu Wen was the first model of East Asian descent to walk for the famous Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the first spokesmodel of East Asian descent for cosmetics brand Estée Lauder, and the first Asian model to ever make Forbes magazine’s annual highest paid models list. In 2012, The New York Times named Liu Wen “China’s first bona fide supermodel”. In 2017, Liu Wen became the first Chinese model to ever appear on the front cover of American Vogue.

Liu Wen’s modeling career started at a modeling camp to help improve her posture. Now the Chinese supermodel is the face of the world’s top fashion houses, and she is just getting started.

10 Secrets About Victoria’s Secret & The Victoria’s Secret Models That Most Women Wish They Knew

“Be kind, forgive, love with all your heart… and in everything you set out to do, find the beauty and the joy.”

Victoria’s Secret #1

Very few people know this but the founder of Victoria’s Secret committed suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate bridge in the San Francisco Bay Area after he realized that he had made the greatest business mistake of his life in the early 1980’s. It turns out that he had sold Victoria’s Secret to entrepreneur Leslie Wexner (founder of the Limited) for $4 million without realizing that Victoria’s Secret would be worth $500 million just a few years later. Today, Victoria’s Secret is the #1 lingerie company in the world and is worth approximately $12 billion United States dollars.

Victoria’s Secret #2

The Victoria’s Secret Angels are not really represented by Victoria’s Secret. These supermodels are represented by their prestigious modeling agencies, and Victoria’s Secret needs the permission of each of those modeling agencies prior to booking each Victoria’s Secret model.

Victoria’s Secret #3

The Victoria’s Secret Angels are no ordinary fashion models in terms of earnings power. Most people would be shocked to find out that Victoria’s Secret Angels make more money in one day than what many men and women make in one year working full time in a regular 9 AM to 5 PM office job. For example, Victoria’s Secret supermodel Gisele Bundchen made approximately $128,000 United States dollars per day (according to Forbes magazine) by modeling for many of the world’s most prestigious fashion brands.

Victoria’s Secret #4

The Victoria’s Secret Angels have a global reach that supermodels from the 1990’s could only dream about. While it is true that supermodels from the 1980’s and 1990’s such as Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford, and Linda Evangelista where known around the world, they were not able to reach their fans directly on a global scale. Today, Victoria’s Secret supermodels such as Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, and South African supermodel Candice Swanepoel can reach their tens of millions of fans directly through social media channels such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Basically, this is an advertiser’s dream because these advertisers know that they can reach tens of millions of people directly by simply hiring these extremely beautiful Victoria’s Secret supermodels, and asking these Victoria’s Secret models to mention their brands in their social media channels. Thus, this allows these Victoria’s Secret fashion models to earn millions of dollars because of their incredible brand power and global reach through their fans that follow them around the world and most importantly, that listen to everything that these Victoria’s Secret models have to say about these brands.

Victoria’s Secret #5

Simply by looking at the Victoria’s Secret Angels you might think that they should enjoy every single day because once they start having children everything would go downhill from there and only get worse with age. However, what most people fail to realize is that many of today’s Victoria’s Secret supermodels are moms and have not just one child, but multiple children. The truth is that to reach the highest level of fashion modeling, you need dedication and consistency. These Victoria’s Secret Angels became supermodels by taking care of their mind and bodies, and to them having children is no excuse to stop working out, start eating hamburgers with bacon and other junk food, and just getting lazy.

If anything, these Victoria’s Secret Angels start working even harder once they have children (what better motivation than giving birth to your child and knowing that in exactly six weeks the entire world will be seeing you walking the runway in lingerie on national television). It used to be that many people would say a model’s career was over once she hit 30 years of age, but many of today’s Victoria’s Secret supermodels are well into their 30’s and making more money than ever before (this has to do a lot with the fact that they have been around longer and have had more time to gather a larger following around the world thanks to social media). Thus, whereas 20 or 30 years ago an advertiser would have been more cautious about hiring a model in her 30’s or 40’s, it now becomes less of an issue if the 30 or 40 year old model has over 11 million followers just on Instagram alone as is the case with Victoria’s Secret supermodel Adriana Lima.

Victoria’s Secret #6

Victoria’s Secret models are not exactly starving, and by that we mean that Victoria’s Secret models are making so much money that being able to pay the bills is the least of their problems. However, by using that phrase we also mean that unlike many other fashion models, Victoria’s Secret models can be a little more curvy than usual for fashion models. In fact, many Victoria’s Secret models share their eating habits to their millions of fans around the world, and while they do eat extremely healthy and take care of their beautiful and perfect bodies on a daily basis, they do like to reward themselves from time to time for all of their hard work modeling, specially after modeling for a successful fashion show, such as the Victoria’s Secret fashion show each year.

The reason that many Victoria’s Secret models do eat a lot is also because they also work out a lot in the gym. During interviews, many Victoria’s Secret models have mentioned that if they did not eat a lot, they would simply not have enough energy for all of those intense workouts that they do at the gym with their trainers. As they have mentioned many times, the problem arises when you eat a lot, and for one reason or another, you simply stop working out on a daily basis. That is when you start gaining weight (most successful fashion models weigh less than 135 pounds, and while this may seem like a lot to some women, it is important to note that many of these successful fashion models are 5’10 or 5’11 in height).

Victoria’s Secret #7

The Victoria’s Secret models travel the world, and by travel the world we really mean travel the world. The Victoria’s Secret models get to travel to some of the most beautiful and exotic destinations in the world, and along the way get to meet some of the most interesting people in the world (we are taking kings, royalty, famous athletes, movie stars, and billionaires that own the companies that hire them for their advertising campaigns). Thus, while this should not be the reason why someone should get into fashion modeling, it is nice to be able to say that you have visited half of the countries in the world while staying at 5 star luxury hotels.

Victoria’s Secret #8

Many Victoria’s Secret Angels had a hard time getting dates in high school. This has to do with the fact that many Victoria’s Secret models developed their bodies late, or developed their bodies too fast and were too tall and skinny. Just like the fairy tales, something magical happened to many of them that by the time they finished high school and entered adulthood, finding dates would become the least of their worries.

Victoria’s Secret #9

Most people already know that L Brands (parent company and owner of Victoria’s Secret) not only owns the Victoria’s Secret brand and the Victoria’s Secret PINK brand, but that they also own Bath & Body Works, La Senza (lingerie), and Henri Bendel. However, what many people do not know is that Abercrombie & Fitch, Express, Lane Bryant, Lerner New York (which later became New York & Company), The Limited, The Limited Too, Structure (converted to Express Men, brand name later sold to Sears), Aura Science (merged with Victoria’s Secret Beauty), and Galyan’s (merged with Dick’s Sporting Goods). Even more impressive, is that the parent company of Victoria’s Secret had the foresight and vision to sell these businesses at great prices before many of them started deteriorating due to the arrival of the Internet and the Amazon.com effect (why go to a fashion store at the mall when you can purchase the same item on Amazon.com for much less money).

Victoria’s Secret #10

The greatest of all secrets coming after this year’s Victoria’s Secret fashion show…
