Bundchen, Lima and Ambrosio: The highest-earning models in the business

Posted by Laura Zúñiga on August 19, 2014

Forbes have released its list of the world’s highest paid models of 2014 – and it’s Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen who steals the show for the eighth year in a row.

The supermodel easily out-earned second placed Dutch model Doutzen Kroes and third placed fellow Brazilian Adriana Lima by a staggering $39 million to cement her place at the top.

According to Forbes.com, "Bundchen, who boasts 2.7 million Instagram followers, has earned US$386 million from modeling since 2001".

And the 34-year-old isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

Her appearance at the World Cup in July– where she presented the Louis Vuitton World Cup trophy case before the final took place – marked the start of a hectic modelling schedule.

She has high profile campaigns lined up with Isabel Marant and Balenciaga for Autumn/Winter 2014, and is set to be the new face of Chanel No.5 alongside her role as the face of Oral-B and Pantene in Brazil.

British born Kate Moss came in a fourth place behind Victoria's Secret model Adriana Lima.

The 40-year-old - who is currently the face of luxury jeweller David Yurman - totted up $7 million.

She was ahead of American Sports Illustrated new comer 22-year-old Kate Upton who flew on to the list in fifth place.

Cara Delevingne and American born Karlie Kloss, 22, were newcomers to the list of 21 highest paid models.

The top earners:

Gisele Bundchen - $US47 million
Doutzen Kroes - $US8 million
Adriana Lima - $US8 million
