Not only do supermodels get to flaunt the finest couture, be adored by millions in photographs, and travel to the most luxurious destinations throughout the world, but they also get paid for it — and for these ladies, those paychecks pack plenty of zeros.
Forbes recently determined 2015's highest-paid models in the entire world, and leading the pack is Gisele Bundchen. The 35-year-old, who retired earlier this year, earned herself a cool $44 million between June 2014 and June 2015. According to Forbes, the Brazilian bombshell has made more money than any other model since 2002.
Joining the list is fellow Brazilian Adriana Lima, also “the longest-running Victoria’s Secret Angel in the brand’s history.” And if that doesn’t surprise you, one newcomer, who just so happens to be related to the Kardashians, also made the cut.
