While the top three highest paid supermodels won’t surprise anyone, you may be surprised to know that for the first time in three years, there are some new entries in the mix.
Topping the charts (as per usual), is the “holy trinity” of Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Kate Moss, and as Edward Razek, chief marketing officer of Limited Brands tells Forbes, the number one slot (Bundchen) shouldn’t exactly be a shock: “Giselen Bundchen is clearly in a class by herself, and has been for a number of years. She’s an international icon who can also move product – from shampoo to couture.”
Not that you need to sell us – even after having a baby, she looks better than most of us on our best days.
Thus, the year’s top 10 list is as follows:
1) Gisele Bundchen
2) Heidi Klum
3) Kate Moss
4) Adriana Lima
5) Alessandra Ambrosio
6) Daria Werbowy
7) Lara Stone
8) Carolyn Murphy
9) Natalia Vodianova
10) Candice Swanepoel
And if you noticed the absence of Miranda Kerr and Deutzen Kroes this year, you’re absolutely right: after taking time to have babies in 2010/2011, the former “top 10” supermodels have found lower rankings on the list, making room for the likes of Candice Swanepoel and Lara Stone who’ve made their mark at positions 7 and 10. (Not bad, considering they’ve edged out the likes of Mrs. Orlando Bloom.)
So who’s in the market to make the top 10 at this time next year? Or I guess we should ask: who is or isn’t pregnant?
