15 Richest Supermodels of 2016
12. Liu Wen
History was made in the fashion world on the day Liu Wen first stepped onto the catwalk for Victoria’s Secret, for it was on that day that she became the first Chinese model to work with the company. (Incredible, right?) Well, she’s moved on from Victoria’s Secret and now has a number of different contracts with a variety of brands, including H&M and La Perla.
11. Alessandra Ambrosio
Alongside the supermodel who made #2 on this list, Alessandra is one of the most instantly recognizable faces in the stable of Victoria’s Secret Angels models. Whereas some models would be content to work with Victoria’s Secret and call it a day, Alessandra believes that there’s no rest for the wicked! That’s why she also earns additional income by developing and modeling for her own line of swimsuits and clothing. Last year, she earned $5 million in total.
10. Lara Stone
You could say that Lara Stone has never known a world outside of modeling, having been a childhood model before moving on to the big leagues. Her most memorable work of late comes from Calvin Klein’s underwear advertisements, in which she appeared astride a shirtless Justin Bieber. All told, she managed to pull in $5 million over the previous year, building on a fortune that’s already one of the largest in the modeling industry.
