Gisele Bundchen is the highest paid model in the fashion modeling industry earning $30.5 million dollars this year, a lot less than the $44 million dollars she made in 2015. The 36 year old Brazilian supermodel has millions of social media fans and followers located around the world and continues making her name into a global brand while making huge amounts of money from lucrative fragrance and beauty deals with Chanel, Carolina Herrera, and Pantene, plus advertisements for Arezzo shoes and SkyTV in her native country Brazil.

The versatile Brazilian fashion model (Gisele Bundchen was born in Tres de Maio near Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil) continues to sign lucrative beauty and fragrance modeling contracts with Chanel, Carolina Herrera, and Pantene, but it is the royalties that she receives from her own line of lingerie and skincare products that help set her earnings apart from the other supermodels on the list of the highest paid fashion models in the world. For example, the Brazilian supermodel gets a cut of sales from the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grendene, while her line of Hope lingerie known as Gisele Bundchen Intimates also contributes to her paycheck. But, if these amazing fashion modeling campaigns and modeling earnings do not inspire you or your daughter to become a fashion model maybe this will…

“Brazilian fashion model Gisele Bundchen has earned over $460 million from fashion modeling since the beginning of this century.”

2. Adriana Lima (Brazil) with model earnings for the year of $10.5 million dollars.

Brazilian fashion model Adriana Lima (born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil) is Victoria’s Secret longest running Angel in the brand’s history, first modeling for them at the beginning of this century. The 35 year old Brazilian supermodel was the face of Maybelline, Vogue Eyewear, and IWC watches, among other major fashion brands helping her to earn her largest paycheck ever this year.

Adriana Lima is the longest running Victoria’s Secret model (Adriana Lima started modeling for Victoria’s Secret, a division of L Brands, in the year 2000) and that Victoria’s Secret seniority comes with a supersized fashion modeling contract, which she supplemented with fashion modeling contracts with Maybelline, Vogue Eyewear, and IWC watches. Earning $10.5 million thanks to recent deals and beautiful fashion advertising campaigns, Brazilian model Adriana Lima has earned more money this year than in any other year in her impressive and long lasting fashion modeling career. With millions upon millions of social media followers, Brazilian fashion model Adriana Lima is one of the world’s most visible supermodels and continues to make the list of the highest paid models in the world year after year.

For fashion’s elite, follower count on social media platforms such as Instagram has finally turned into financial wealth. Though supermodel Gisele Bündchen still leads the world’s top earning models with $30.5 million dollars, supermodel Kendall Jenner (No. 3) and newcomer Gigi Hadid (No. 5) have risen up the ranks of the highest paid models in the world by turning their huge Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook followings into multi-million dollar paychecks.

A giant social media following helps the 20 year old fashion model get high paying fashion modeling contracts from cosmetics giant Estée Lauder and famous underwear brand Calvin Klein, as well as Mango, Penshoppe, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Karl Lagerfeld, and Topshop. Beautiful fashion model Kendall Jenner is the biggest dollar earner this past year (Kendall Jenner’s modeling earnings jumped 150% from $4 million dollars in 2015) making Kendall Jenner the 3rd highest paid fashion model on planet Earth.

Kendall Jenner has leveraged her huge social media presence of over 65 million Instagram followers (more than any other fashion model in the world) into million dollar modeling contracts with fashion companies such as Estée Lauder and Calvin Klein, who likely see her social platforms as a new media buy (this means that if Kendall Jenner gets hired for Estée Lauder, Calvin Klein, or any other fashion brand, she has the power to directly reach over 65 million people when she posts on Instagram and talks about those fashion campaigns). Thus, when a fashion company hires a supermodel like Kendall Jenner, they are not just hiring a pretty face but the equivalent of an advertising agency or a media company that has the ability to reach tens of millions of people located around the world.

Supermodel Kendall Jenner has accomplished something that many of the supermodels of the 1990’s and the fashion companies that hired them could only dream of during the last century, and that is the ability for the model to reach tens of millions of people directly. Thus, the modeling business has changed in a huge and meaningful way because unlike the supermodels of the 1980’s and the 1990’s, today’s supermodels have become more and more influential because they are the conduits of media, not only beautiful girls who can be the faces of prestigious fashion campaigns, but girls with the incredible power to distribute those fashion campaigns to their tens of millions of followers located around the world.

A royalty cut from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s own series of lingerie, makeup, and fragrances for department store Marks & Spencers accounts for the majority of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s millions of dollars in earnings this past year. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley supplements her Marks & Spencers income modeling for Burberry fragrance and clothing advertisements, among other major fashion brands.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is known around the world from acting roles in major motion pictures such as “Mad Max: Fury Road” and 2011’s “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”, and from being a former Victoria’s Secret lingerie model. However, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has discovered that being an English fashion model could also equal retail gold: a royalty cut from her own series of lingerie, makeup, and fragrances for department store Marks & Spencers accounts for the majority of her millions of dollars in earnings.
