The ten highest paid supermodel in the world
Gisele Bündchen reigns on the Forbes list for the seventh consecutive year. For the first four places, there are over thirty models: in addition to charm and a bit of luck needed in fact experience and a keen business sense
Charm, luck, experience and a great sense for business. These are the four qualities that used to appear on the Forbes list dedicated to the highest paid models in the world that takes into account the receipts recorded by the top between June of 2012 and June of 2013 and relies on trade agreements, licenses and shots taken . And Gisele Bündchen, queen of the catwalk for the seventh consecutive year with $ 42 million, has them all. If we are unable to sign a contract with the lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret’s it: six of the top in the chart are in fact “Angels” of the fashion house specializing in the depths of high range or have appeared in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The company is very sensitive to the charm and talent, has over the years become a trademark of sure success, to spend more to sign additional contracts.
In the top ten turnover is substantial. On the other account that the supermodel is a golden world where, however, the presence (motherhood can block for a long time a model) and freshness are very heavy. Compared to last year are out of the top ten Natalia Vodianova, 3rd place in 2012 with $ 8.6 million; Doutzen Kroes on the 5th last year with 6.9 million last year and Alessandria Ambrosio in 2012 to 6th place with 6.6 million.
