Barely a day goes by without one of their beautiful faces (and bodies) peering out at us from a billboard, advert or print campaign. And so it’s unsurprising that the likes of Gisele, Miranda Kerr and Joan Smalls have topped Forbes list of the highest-earning models for the year.

With current campaigns including H&M, Chanel and Pantene under her belt, Brazilian model Gisele tops the list for the seventh consecutive year, at a worth of £27 million.

And yet again, there seems to be little competition for her title as Miranda Kerr, who follows her in second place, is worth an estimated £4.6 million, thanks to earnings from her organic beauty line, Kora Organics and deals with Spanish fashion retailer Mango and Qantas.

Hot on Miranda Kerr’s heels is fellow Victoria’s Secret Angel Adriana Lima who is currently valued, at £3.8 million with out very own Kate Moss not too far behind at a cool £3.6 million.

Along with the usual suspects, there are two new names in this year’s top ten, Chinese model Liu Wen who has been estimated to be worth £2.75 million, and Puerto Rican Joan Smalls at £2.2 million.

Liu has had an incredible couple of years in the industry. The very first Chinese model to walk in the Victoria’s Secret fashion show she is also the current face of Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss and Estee Lauder. Whilst, Smalls – a fellow Lauder ambassador – was the first Latina face of the beauty behemoth and fronts campaigns from Givenchy and Fendi to high street hero H&M.

Whilst models Hilary Rhoda, Carolyn Murphy, Candice Swanepoel and Lara Stone all made it into the top ten with earnings of £2.5 million down to £2.04 million respectively, Forbes has predicted that next year we may see the likes of Karlie Kloss, Kate Upton, Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio inch their way up the model money-making ladder.
