Kate Upton Makes As Much Money Modeling as Kate Moss Now
By Antoinette Bueno
It pays to be pretty.
Forbesreleased their list of The World's Highest-Paid Models Of 2014 Monday, and not surprisingly, Gisele takes the number one spot, earning a whopping $47 million in the last year alone.
Gisele, 34, is pretty much untouchable on the supermodel list -- Victoria's Secret Angels Doutzen Kroes, 29, and Adriana Lima, 33, tie for second on the list, but their earnings of $8 million each last year pale in comparison to Gisele's $128,000 a day.
Though another shock on the list is the rise of Kate Upton, 22.
Upton's celebrity status earned her $7 million a year, putting her at a tie for third place with the legendary Kate Moss, 40.
Supermodels certainly seem to be having a moment, with It Girls Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss landing the highly coveted September cover of Vogue.
Calling the trio "The Instagirls" thanks to their massive popularity on social media, Vogue singles them out as well as fellow models Arizona Muse, Edie Campbell, Imaan Hammam, Fei Fei Sun, Vanessa Axente and Andreea Diaconu for building their own brands and "single-handedly catapulting themselves to this generation's version of supermodel status."
