How Much Money Do Victoria’s Secret Models Make?
The 21st annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was held in Paris last week, and recently aired for audiences in the U.S. In honor of this event, we’ll take a look at the models that have profited the most in their careers. From the Hadid sisters and Kendall Jenner, to Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio here are the VS Angels who have made the most money from modelling.
11. Bella Hadid
She may be following in her big sister’s footsteps (or Angel wings) but Bella is already one of the most famous models in the world. With over 8 million followers on Instagram she has serious earning potential, and is already personally worth $3 million.
10. Martha Hunt
Younger fans may not recognize her name, but probably know Marta from her appearance in Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video. The 27-year-old had modeled in several campaigns for Michael Kors, London Fog, and other notable brands which has helped her make just over $3 million.
9. Jasmine Tookes
Jasmine made headlines at this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show when she became the third black woman chosen to wear the Fantasy Bra. The diamond encrusted bra is worth $3 million, which would be less than Tookes’s net worth of $5 million.
8. Taylor Hill
21-year-old Taylor Hill has already earned a spot on the Forbes list of “Highest Paid Models.” The brunette Angel has a reported net worth of over $6 million.
7. Lily Aldridge
At 31, Lily is something of an “elder stateswoman” for Victoria’s Secret. The stunning brunette beauty is married to Kings of Leon singer, Caleb Followill, but pulls in a ton of loot herself. She has appeared in campaigns for Bulgari and Rag & Bone, and raked in an estimated $8 million during her career.
6. Gigi Hadid
The statuesque Hadid has cast a rather large shadow for her younger sister. This year was Gigi’s second year appearing on the catwalk for Victoria’s Secret. In addition to her high-profile runway gigs, the gorgeous model and social media star, is also the face for Tommy Hilfiger. No wonder she has amassed $13 million during her career.
5. Joan Smalls
The 5’10” Puerto Rican beauty is one of the most notable models in the world. The 28-year-old became the first Latina model to represent Estee Lauder cosmetics, and it’s campaigns like this that led to her pulling in $16 million from modelling.
4. Kendall Jenner
Even though she recently had a quick hiatus from social media, Kendall has a staggering 70 million followers on Instagram. It’s this level of clout that has led to not only a burgeoning modeling career, but overall international stardom. Jenner’s personal estimated fortune is $18 million.
3. Liu Wen
Liu Wen may not be a household name in the States, but back in 2013, this Chinese beauty topped the Forbes List for “Highest Paid Models.” The 28-year-old is based out of New York currently, and has made around $35 million throughout her career.
2. Allessandra Ambrosio
The Brazilian bombshell is one of the most legendary models in the history of Victoria’s Secret. In 2006, she was selected as the first spokesperson in the company’s PINK line, but has branched out on her own business ventures in recent years. This year alone she made $5 million. The 35-year-old has an estimated net worth of $60 million.
1. Adriana Lima
Along with Ambrosio, Lima was selected to close out this year’s Fashion Show. She has been an Angel since way back in 2000. Adriana was a longtime spokesmodel for Maybelline and has numerous endorsement deals including ones with Vogue Eyewear and IWC Watches. Thanks to all of this, the 5’10” stunner from Salvador has made a whopping $75 million.
