Have you ever bought something just because someone popular modeled the product? Well, you are not alone – there are many people whose buying power has been affected by certain individuals who showcase the products, which is why companies and brands pay tons of money to them.
Topping this list are supermodels like the Hadid sisters and Victoria’s Secret angels who have amassed millions from strutting their stuff on the runway. Here are some of the wealthiest models in the world:
Who doesn’t know Adriana Lima? She became famous for being a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 1999 and has held onto the title for the longest time. The pretty face started modeling when she was 15 in her home country, Brazil, and she eventually moved to the Big Apple to pursue her dream.
Once she signed with a top modeling agency, Adriana’s face became one of the most sought-after, evident by her $85-million fortune as of 2019. Her fans, however, were saddened when she retired her wings in 2018.
Two beautiful ladies stand before me… this famous line was originally delivered by no less than Tyra Banks herself in the hit modeling show America’s Next Top Model that spun other versions in different countries. The host started her career with modeling, and like Adriana, moving on to become a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
On top of her modeling stints, Tyra has also written a book, Modelland, and has acted in several films. The 46-year-old is showing no signs of stopping so you can expect that her $90-million fortune will still grow.
Back in the ‘80s, Cindy Crawford was the ultimate It model. Almost all, if not everyone, know who this gorgeous lady is and that’s because brands were fighting over her to model their products.
Apart from being the face of several items, Cindy also used to grace covers of fashion magazines. Since then, she had ventured into acting. Her earnings are now at $100 million.
Svelte model Heidi Klum is the first woman from Germany to have ever held the title of a Victoria’s Secret Angel. For over a decade, she had been active in modeling and later tried her luck in businesses.
Heidi had launched her own fragrance and accessories line and has dipped her toes into acting as well. So far, she has amassed a whopping $120 million and although her next step is unpredictable, it is safe to say that she has enough money to retire comfortably.
Gisele Bundchen is the lucky gal who snatched Tom Brady’s heart, but apart from that, she is a beast on her own. This is because this Victoria’s Secret Angel has raked in $400 million, which she uses for her efforts to fight climate change.
