Adriana1 The Highest Paid Models Of 2016 Have Been RevealedInstagram

Forbes have released their official list of the world’s highest paid models in 2016 and it doesn’t include some of the people you might think.

Of course, number one stays the same for the millionth year in a row (will she ever be beaten?), but the legendary Miranda Kerr, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Doutzen Kroes, and Kate Moss have not made the cut this time around.

It looks like having deals with Chanel pays off… I might look into it as evening work.

In last place (well, 7th) at a mere $8.5 million, Cara Delevingne.

The American beauty is earning an incredible $9 million from her deals with Maybelline, Tommy Hilfiger, BMW, and Topshop.

And all before she turns 22.

Rosie has a luxuriously sexy lingerie and perfume range at Mark’s and Spencer which is obviously extremely lucrative.

Her highly successful modeling career has raked in a massive $10 million.

With 64.5 million Instagram followers, Kendall’s social media presence is indubitable.

Adriana Lima, Victoria’s Secret’s longest running angel, clocked her biggest deal this year from her contract with the L Brands-owned lingerie giant, Maybelline and IWC watches.

She was one of the first Victoria’s Secret angels back in 2000 and her modelling career doesn’t seem to have dipped despite the fact she is now 36 (pretty old in modelling terms).

And let’s not forget her amazing cameo in Devil Wear’s Prada.

According to Forbes, the world’s 20 highest-paid models earned a gross cumulative $154 million between June 1, 2015, and June 1, 2016, and boast close to 200 million Instagram followers combined.

Male models are not included in the ranking as they typically earn far less than female models (one of the only industries where the gender pay gap is reversed).
