Clipping: Highest Paid Models, Forbes List 2012

LISTS | 6/14/2012 @ 11:02AM |
The World’s Highest Paid Models

Just how rare is a supermodel?

To hear Ed Razek, chief marketing officer of Limited Brands, describe it, discovering a true supermodel, with all of the requisite gifts, is a daunting task.

“In the entire history of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, 140 separate women have walked that runway,” Razek says. “There are seven billion people on the planet. That makes each of them not one in a million, not one in five million, not one in ten million. That literally makes them one in 50 million humans.”

And that’s all the women who have participated in the show over the last 15 years. The elite list of models Forbes has compiled is even more rarefied company — and they’re paid handsomely for their talents. Over the last 12 months, the combined earnings of the top ten highest-paid models, from Gisele Bündchen to Candice Swanepoel, totals just under $100 million.

Just like last year, the Brazilian bombshell Bündchen leads the pack with a stunning $45 million in earnings (all estimates from May 1st, 2011 to May 1st, 2012). Even in her early thirties, Bündchen remains an unparalleled force within the fashion world. As the world’s most powerful supermodel, she racks up modeling gigs, spokesperson deals, and independent licensing ventures at every turn. The veritable endorsement queen shills for brands such as Pantene, Esprit, and Versace, and makes a percentage of profits on Ipanema flip-flops and other products bearing her name. While in the United States many know her as the wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, Bündchen’s effect as a spokesperson, especially in her native Brazil, can make a huge difference.

Bündchen’s success combining business with modeling is influencing young, ascendant models. “The ones that are coming up, their model for excellence is Gisele. They’re looking at her and saying ‘that’s what I want to shoot for,’” Razek said.

Coming up a distant second in the rankings is British supermodel Kate Moss, with earnings of $9.2 million. Moss is known for her party-hard ways, but she remains one of fashion’s biggest icons, with big endorsement deals with Longchamp, Mango, Rimmel, and Vogue Eyewear. She also has a lucrative design deal with TopShop going back to 2007.

Natalia Vodianova, a Russian model whose name may be less familiar, was third with $8.6 million. Fragrance campaigns with Guerlain and Calvin Klein Euphoria have boosted Vodianova’s earnings into the highest echelons of modeling. The 30-year-old, who now lives in the UK, also designs lingerie collections for Etam and shoes for Centro.

“There was a time where the odd beauty was in style, and that created a backlash for a time when advertisers couldn’t use those girls,” said David Bonnouvrier, chairman of DNA Models, which represents Vodianova, along with fellow top models Doutzen Kroes (#5) and Alessandra Ambrosio (#6). “The top girls now represent a return to a true representation of beauty, not the odd beauty or a fashion-diverted version of beauty.”

Adriana Lima, who’s primarily known as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, registered $7.3 million in an exciting year. In addition to announcing that she’s expecting her second child, Lima made a big splash in early 2012 when she appeared in two attention-grabbing Super Bowl commercials, one for Kia and another, more seductive spot for Teleflora. Crossing over from the fashion world to a more mainstream audience, she now has more Facebook followers than any other model, and grabbed the final spot on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list.

“Adriana’s a very modern, diverse beauty,” said her agent, Chris Gay, president of Marilyn New York. “She’s an ethnic mix of a girl, where quite frankly because she has such a multi-racial, multi-cultural background, everybody is accepting of her. That has always been her huge benefit.”

If you’ve followed our annual ranking in past years, you might wonder what happened to German supermodel Heidi Klum. Last year she ranked number two overall, after Bündchen, and her $20 million in earnings this year would have placed her comfortably into the same spot this time. However, Forbes determined that, like Tyra Banks before her, Klum has graduated from model to mogul. Since ending her 13-year run as a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2010, Klum has become more of a businesswoman and multi-media personality.

Klum still endorses products, like Coca-Cola in Germany, but a large portion of her earnings comes from hosting popular television shows like Project Runway and Germany’s Next Top Model. She’s also partnered with companies to start her own business ventures. Klum has worked with New Balance and Amazon to create her own clothing brand and launched a jewelry line on QVC in September 2011. She even has her own micro-site within AOL for advice on everything from fashion to parenting.

Looking ahead, it’s tough to see anyone who might be able to dethrone Bündchen in the near future, given her sizable earnings lead. But there are young models coming up who may eventually challenge for the top spots. Candice Swanepoel, while only ranked 10th, is the youngest supermodel on the list. The 23-year-old South African has become a staple in Victoria’s Secret advertising. Same with Erin Heatherton, another 23-year-old who just missed the list.

Or perhaps it will be someone like Kate Upton, the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model. Until now, Upton has found more mainstream fame, especially online, than traditional modeling opportunities. But the 20-year-old has plenty of time to capitalize in that direction.

I have always known that America is hiding many treasures from me. I am glad I found this one S)). Celebrating the hospitality of Blantyre Hotel, delicious Pinot Noire and gorgeous sunset in Lenox town, home to Shakespeare and Company’s new international campus and Edith Wharton’s restored mansion. I am here just for another night, but it is going on the list of the places to revisit.

Sirena Vodianova, el ángel de la pasarela

La eterna adolescente, Natalia Vodianova, posa con la colección baño 2012 de Etam.

En este teatro de luces y sombras que es la moda, Natalia Vodianova representa la cara más dulce del éxito. Nacida en 1982 en uno de los barrios más conflictivos de la ciudad rusa de Nizhny Novgorod, es la mayor de una familia monoparental, con dos hermanas, todas de distinto padre y una de ellas, Oksana, aquejada de parálisis cerebral. Mantenidas con los míseros ingresos del puesto de frutas ambulante de su madre, se vio obligada a ayudarla desde los nueve años. Quizá la diferencia entre esta penosa historia y muchas otras similares es que la propia Vodianova define su infancia como feliz. La importancia que todo esto ha tenido en su vida no es poca y es la semilla del proyecto más importante de la modelo hasta la fecha: la Fundación Naked Heart, dedicada a construir desde 2005 lugares de juego y dar asistencia a niños sin recursos por toda Rusia.

Crónica de un éxito inmediato

Su belleza eternamente juvenil –”Algo que me exaspera, a fin de cuentas soy una mujer de 30 años, madre de tres hijos y no paro de trabajar. Ya me gustaría, alguna vez, que mi aspecto exterior delatase todo esto”– cautivó a un cazatalentos que la encontró vendiendo fruta en un mercado. En el 2000 fue presentada abriendo y cerrando el show de Yves Saint Laurent. Su éxito fue inmediato y, en cierto modo, se convirtió en el pistoletazo de salida para el boom de modelos del Este que aún hoy alimenta las pasarelas. Pero Natalia, que ha sido imagen de Guerlain, Givenchy o Calvin Klein, contó con algo más a su favor: posiblemente desde Linda Evangelista no se conocía otra modelo tan camaleónica. Capaz de resultar tan efectiva como turbia “flapper” al modo años 20, como “vamp” de los 40 o frívola “disco-girl” de los 90, Natalia se convirtió en insustituible para fotógrafos como Steven Meisel.

Pero no contenta con romper moldes dentro de la moda también los fulminó fuera de ella. La primera de las normas que “quebrantó” fue la de la maternidad. Con apenas 19 años, dio a luz a su primer hijo. Algo que hubiera acabado con la carrera de cualquier otra, gracias a ella, significó el principio del fin de un triste paradigma para las modelos. Vodianova conoció a su primer marido, el aristócrata y millonario Justin Portman durante una cena en París en 2001. En noviembre de ese año se casaron. Su matrimonio, roto finalmente en junio del año pasado, le ha dado tres hijos: Lucas Alexander, Neva y Viktor, el pequeño. Otro rasgo inconcebible unos años antes para una top de sus dimensiones es la naturalidad con la que habla de su vida privada. De hecho, el mundo se enteró de su nueva relación con el también millonario y portavoz de Louis Vuitton, Antoine Arnaud, gracias a unas fotos de un beso tomadas en Ibiza a los pocos meses de su divorcio, que ella misma colgó en su Facebook.

Rompiendo barreras

Pero Natalia nos reserva más sorpresas: entre otras, su voluntad de mantener una carrera paralela a la de modelo en el mundo del cine. Una carrera que, contra todo pronóstico, va a más. Tras sus cameos en ‘GQ’ (2001) y ‘Furia de Titanes’ (2010), ella insiste, y a lo grande: este año estrenará, junto a Jonathan Rhys-Meyer, la adaptación de la novela ‘Bella del señor’, salida de la pluma de Albert Cohen. Los looks que viste en la película ya han dado que hablar. Y aunque todavía es pronto para decidir si ha nacido una nueva estrella del celuloide, dada la suerte que la acompaña en todos sus proyectos, ¿por qué no?
