The verdict is, lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret do pay their models very well. Other than that, one big fat beauty campaign contract can also increase a model’s profile. Gisele is considered as ‘the last supermodel who turned into a household name’ according to US Vogue therefore her earnings are reasonably higher a lot more than any other model. I can simply classify these topmodels into 1) professional international models 2) trashy lingerie models 3) evergreen veterans who’re still coveted 4) inked with the Hollywood circuit.

    I agree with what you said in the end..:) Gisele probably invested a lot! Or she had people around her who advised her the right way.

    Hey, thanks for your comment on my post about the Top Ten Richest Supermodels. I didn’t really understand your comment, but I think you were implying I switched a couple names, or photos. I double checked, and I can’t find any mistakes.
