Forbes' Super-rich Supermodels!

Forbes magazine has released it's annual list of the world's highest-earning supermodels. Predominantly made up of Victoria's Secret models, the top three is unchanging but there are a few new faces that have broken their way into this year's list. Just one question; where's Naomi and Freja?

Gisele Bündchen - $45 million
A gorgeous American football quarterback husband, a new baby AND more lucrative modelling contracts than you can shake a stick at. The woman is untouchable. Need I say more?
Heidi Klum - $20 million
Longtime Victoria's Secret model and television presenter Klum has become a celebrity personality as well as a model, often seen on the pages of gossip magazines as well as attending red carpet events with her musician husband Seal. She is currently the host of the highly successful, Germany's Next Top Model.
Kate Moss - $13.5 million
Queen of London cool, Kate Moss the brand continues to thrive even post-Topshop. Currently the face of Dior beauty, Moss also has her own line of bags with Longchamp as well as her longstanding contract with London high street beauty brand Rimmel.
Adriana Lima - $8 million
Becoming a household name after her guest appearance on Ugly Betty, this Victoria's Secret model is branching into high-end as one of the faces of both Givenchy and Loewe this season.
Alessandra Ambrosio - $5 million
Yet another Victoria's Secret model, Ambrosio is also one of the faces of both Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino this season.

Daria Werbowy - $4.5 million
Appearing in what seems like every campaign going this season (including two of my favourites below) this Polish-Canadian model also has a longstanding contract as the face of Lancôme.
Lara Stone - $4.5 million
After a breakout last year being touted as fashion's new It-girl, Lara Stone signed an exclusive contract with Calvin Klein for this year. The Dutch model has already appeared on the cover of Vogue three times and is married to British comedian David Walliams.
Carolyn Murphy - $4.3 million
At 37 (WOW she looks good!), Murphy is the oldest on the list along with Miss Moss. She has long-standing contracts with megabrands Estée Lauder, Tiffany and Tom Ford, and is a four-time Vogue covergirl.
Natalia Vodianova - $4 million
It's no secret that Natalia is my personal favourite. Having been a supermodel for more than a decade, 29-year-old mother-of-three Vodianova has appeared on the cover of Vogue a staggering 9 times. She has been the face of countless high profile brands most notably Calvin Klein and Guerlain. These days Vodianova focuses more on her charity, the Naked Heart Foundation, which builds playgrounds for children in deprived areas in Russia.
Candice Swanepoel - $2 million
Replacing fellow Victoria's Secret Angel, Miranda Kerr on the list, Swanepoel is the face of denim brand True Religion and has appeared on the pages of Italian Vogue.
