Bundchen is top earner on the ramp

Twenty eight-year-old Bundchen is at the top rank with earnings to the tune of $25 million from numerous campaigns including those for brands like Versace, True Religion jeans and Dior. ‘The world’s top earning model’ is based on estimated earnings of models from June 2008 to June 2009. Four Brazilian models have found a place in the rankings.
“The modelling industry has been hard-hit by the economic crisis, but the value of the beauties at the top is as strong as ever,” the magazine noted.
Bundchen is followed by 35-year-old Heidi Klum of Germany with an estimated earning of $16 million. The majority of Klum’s earnings are driven by her TV and endorsement career. The model has endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Volkswagen, McDonald’s and LG, the report said.
Kate Moss was placed on the third spot with $8.5 million, followed by another Brazilian model Adriana Lima who earned $8 million. At the fifth position is Doutzen Kroes, the face of cosmetic company L’Oreal, and she raked in $6 million.
