Topping this year’s list of Highest Paid Models by a gap big enough to build a new mansion in is Brazilian queen Gisele Bündchen, whose bank-busting $47 million not only outstripped husband Tom Brady’s $31m New England Patriots paycheck, but was nearly five times the earnings of her nearest competitor, Dutchwoman Doutzen Kroes, on $8 million. Highsnob favorite Kate Upton is the list’s highest ranking newcomer, having made $7M in her first year of modelling, outstripping more established talents like Karlie Kloss, Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne, who made $4M, $4M and $3.5M respectively. The list itself was calculated by taking into account contracts for advertising, licensing and brand representation, with each figure quoted prior to the deduction of tax and other management fees.
