The 24-year-old American hunk—who was discovered on MySpace and has starred in campaigns for H&M, Zara, Kenzo and Cartier, as well as Madonna's 'Girl Gone Wild' video—topped a list compiled by Forbes after taking home $1.5 million in the last year, more than $40 million less than highest-earning female model Gisele Bundchen.
Though he has starred in several fashion adverts, the bulk of Sean's earnings in the assessed period—September 2012-September 2013—came from his work in fragrance campaigns for Jil Sander's Ultrasense and Viktor & Rolf's Spicebomb.
Second on the list with earnings of $1.4 million is British Dolce & Gabbana hunk David Gandy, while Simon Nessman's $1.1 million earnings saw him secure third place on the list. Russian Arthur Kulkov—who brought home $905,000—and model-turned actor Noah Mills, who amassed $740,000, placed fourth and fifth respectively. Ryan Burns' exclusive deal with Zegna saw him take sixth place with earnings of $610,000. Tyson Ballou, Ollie Edwards, Jon Kortajarena and Tobias Sorensen rounded off the top 10.
