Forbes Releases The List For World's Highest-Paid Models—And We're Not the Least Bit Surprised

The jet-setting life of supermodels might seem like it’s all about the fame, fashion and parties, but there are some seriously hardworking ladies in the biz. Forbes just released their list of the world’s highest-paid models of 2013 and we’re not the least bit surprised about the women topping that list. Aside from being household names these women are the go-to faces in the industry. Basically if Miranda is selling it, we want it. While there are some interesting gaps in their paycheck (like a whopping a 34.8 million stretch between the women ranked first and second) it’s an interesting reflection on their contracts and personal businesses. And while Gisele Bündchen, Miranda Kerr, Adrianna Lima, Kate Moss and Liu Wen round off the top five, the top ten still offer some faces we love and are hoping to see more of! Models like Joan Smalls (ranked eighth) and Lara Stone (ranked tenth) are going to continue to be runway darlings, while some of our favorite models who didn’t make the top cut like Cara Delevingne and Kate Upton, we’re hoping to see next year!
