Forbes magazine recently released the latest list of the world’s most highly paid models. Ranked 1st on the list of the world’s most highly paid models is legendary Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen with estimated earnings of $45 million United States Dollars over the past year. To make it into the ranks of the world’s top earning models, it is not enough to simply walk the high fashion runways of New York and Milan or sign on to big marketing campaigns. To make it into the rankings of the world’s most highly paid models these beauties that command the biggest paychecks in the modeling industry are brand names themselves. For example, Gisele Bündchen and German beauty Heidi Klum, the women topping the list again this year, have become fashion superstars around the world. The models on the list were ranked according to estimated earnings from May 2010 to May 2011.

There is no doubt that from Brazil to Milan, New York, and Paris, Gisele Bundchen is an unparalleled force within the fashion modeling industry. Gisele Bundchen remains, of the two financial giants of the industry (the other being Heidi Klum), capable of moving masses of product to the consumer. From fragrance to sandals, watches, high end clothing, and everything in between, Gisele Bundchen will most likely continue to earn millions upon millions in the next few years and is also believed to soon become the first model on planet earth to become a self made billionaire!

Since leaving Victoria’s Secret in 2007, Gisele Bündchen has gotten married to NFL superstar Tom Brady and become a mother, but she has yet to slow down. Gisele Bündchen remains the face of numerous campaigns and endorsement deals throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America. From H&M to Dior and Versace, Gisele Bundchen stands behind brands that represent both luxury and affordability. Her selling power is incredible: Gisele Bündchen’s endorsement of Pantene in Brazil was credited to helping increase sales of the brand by approximately 40% over the previous year. Gisele Bundchen’s most lucrative deals go beyond modeling as she earns a percentage of sales from the Ipanema flip flops bearing her name, which today rival Brazil’s well known Havaianas brand.

You know their names. You recognize their faces on the world’s most prestigious fashion magazines. You know they make millions, and we mean millions. But did you know that these supermodels are also becoming business giants in the fashion industry? Business you said? We thought this was a fashion blog about the modeling industry and our favorite models and supermodels. Actually, you are correct, but maybe not in the way that you thought you were prior to reading this article.

Meet Gisele Bundchen – The World’s First Self Made Billionaire Model?

Above: Beautiful Brazilian Supermodel Gisele Bundchen Modeling For Versace Photographed By Mario Testino For Versace Wearing Beautiful Versace Dresses.

Gisele Bundchen is known throughout the world. She is expected to perhaps become the world’s first self made billionaire model. Gisele Bundchen is still the highest paid model in the world, having earned approximately $45 million last year. While her record $5 million a year Victoria’s Secret contract has ended, she still earns serious money by licensing her image to Brazilian shoe company Grendene. Her sandal line, Ipanema by Gisele, accounts for about 20% of the company’s $95 million in annual sales. Annual royalty that gets sent in the form of checks to the beautiful wife of superstar quarterback Tom Brady: about $8 million per year just from that income source alone.

Meet German Beauty Heidi Klum – $20 Million Per Year Is The Only Introduction She Needs

Pity the poor supermodel. In The 1990’s supermodels earned $50,000 a day on the runways of New York, London, Paris or Milan. Today, all but the cream of the crop are likely to walk away with little more than a taxi fare and a few pairs of the designer’s high heels. As for high powered cosmetics contracts, long the province of supermodels like Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford, those are now going to Hollywood stars like Scarlett Johansson and Eva Longoria, both with L’Oréal.

Fortunately, beautiful faces never go out of style. A popular model with a few contracts under her belt can slap her name on fragrances, clothes, shoes, and skincare lines. “Brands are still looking for that beautiful face or body,” says Ryan Schinman, chief executive of Platinum Rye, which represents corporations that partner with celebrities. “Older models with household names are making more than they ever did as supermodels in the 1980’s or 1990’s. They are at the height of their earning potential.” Heidi Klum, the world’s 2nd most highly paid model having earned approximately $20 million last year is known throughout the world thanks to having been an Angel with Victoria’s Secret and now the famous host of Project Runway which is seen by millions of viewers worldwide. As she approaches her 40’s, one can only imagine that this is just the beginning of her fashion modeling empire.

But no supermodel can quite compete with Sports Illustrated favorite Kathy Ireland, whose branding strategy inspired the likes of Cindy Crawford and Heidi Klum. Kathy Ireland, who puts her name on everything from sofas and window blinds to jewelry and even entire homes has taken branding to the billion dollar universe! In 2007, her company, Kathy Ireland Worldwide, in which the green-eyed beauty holds a majority stake, generated $1.5 billion in retail sales. Kathy Ireland takes home at least $15 million of that dollar amount. Everyone knows it pays to be pretty and beautiful. It is also good to know that it pays even more to be really smart. Thus, while many in the fashion industry have claimed that the “Age Of The Supermodel” is long gone, many could argue that this is just the beginning!

In addition, her Germany’s Next Top Model continues to dominate the ratings in that country.

The modeling icon people call Heidi Inc. is no mere sexy mortal, but a force of nature. It is important to note that according to Forbes magazine, the top 10 earning female models on the planet made a combined $112 million in the 12 months up to May 2011. This represents an increase of approximately 30% from a total of $86.5 million over the previous year. Most of this gain was enjoyed by the top three supermodels: Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum, and Kate Moss. Brazilian beauty Gisele Bundchen is also expected to become the word’s first self made billionaire model. The trio have transformed themselves from supermodels to business tycoons, stepping off the runway and into the role of designers, entrepreneurs, and business geniuses. Heidi Klum, the German supermodel and host and executive producer of Project Runway, with an audience in the millions, trails far behind Gisele Bündchen at No. 2 on the list with estimated earnings of approximately $20 million in the last 12 months.

DSquared2 Spring Summer 2011 Fashion Runway Show In Milan And Model Interviews

Go backstage with designers Dean & Dan Caten at their DSquared2 Spring Summer 2011 collection in Milan. As they explained backstage “it’s boy meets girl”. There’s masculine things, feminine things and their new DSquared2 Eyewear collection is the statement.

Makeup artist Gordon Espinet used one of their favorite beauty products on the models – Mac Cosmetics Mineralized Skinfinish Natural giving them that perfect summer glow. This girl is glammed down, but she’s still sexy.

Design and fashion shows

Dean and Dan Caten (born Dean and Dan Catenacci) are identical twin brother fashion designers and the creators of DSquared2, a high-end fashion label.

The brothers are known for designing clothes and staging elaborate fashion shows with “explosive energy”. They design men’s and women’s apparel, men’s and women’s footware, fragrances, and cosmetics. A runway show in 2005 featured Christina Aguilera with male models. In September 2007, the DSquared2 fashion show in Milan featured Rihanna entering the stage in an American muscle car, followed by a runway walk.

Their designs have been worn by Britney Spears, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Ricky Martin, and Nicolas Cage. In 2000-2001, Madonna commissioned them to design over 150 pieces for her Drowned World Tour 2001 and “Don’t Tell Me” music video. DSquared2’s design was also featured in Britney Spear’s Circus tour. They have been featured on America’s Next Top Model and appeared in the music video for Fergie’s “Clumsy” and The Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling”.

The intelligent mix of irreverent Canadian wit and refined Italian tailoring, together with attention to detail are the foundation of today’s Dsquared2 philosophy, which has given life to a unique concept of alternative luxury. Recently, Dsquared2 collections have conquered a wider audience and, owing to their natural stylistic maturity, have become more chic and sophisticated while maintaining those sexy and provocative traits so embedded in their creative roots. This evolution is also due to the continuous international inspiration received by Dean and Dan, who, while dividing their life and work between Milan and London, create their collections in Italy: “Born in Canada, living in London, made in Italy”.

DSquared2 Stores
In June 2007, the first DSquared2 flagship was opened in Milan’s fashion district. Stores have also opened in Capri, Istanbul, Kiev, Cannes, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Gisele Bundchen Is Soon To Become The World’s First Billionaire Model

According to Forbes Magazine, Gisele Bundchen is soon to become the world’s first billionaire model. Over the course of the last ten years Gisele has made approximately $215 million for her modeling work and campaigns. These ventures along with her various real estate investments are very likely to bring the model to the billionaire mark. It is safe to say that Gisele Bundchen puts the SUPER in supermodel.
When Gisele Bundchen comes to mind, many of us remember her as the drop-dead gorgeous Victoria’s Secret Angel. Gisele is without a doubt all of the above, but is also recognized as the face of many major designers, including Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, Blvgari, and Christian Dior. Her most recent campaigns for H&M, Versace, and Inpanema flip-flop line are the most current major contributors to her rapidly growing income. In Brazil, she also has her own lingerie line in partnership with Hope called “Gisele Bundchen Brazilian Intimates” and a skincare line “Seeja Pure Skincare”.

Gisele’s modeling career began at age 14 in Sao Paulo, Brazil when she was discovered by an agency at a shopping mall in 1994. She grew up in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, a town in the backcountry of Brazil mainly populated by German-Brazilians like herself. Originally, Gisele wanted to become a professional volleyball player and was often teased in school for being so skinny. Little did they know what the future had in store for the slender, blue-eyed, 14 year-old girl of Horizontina. After placing 2nd in the national contest and 4th in the world contest of Elite Look of the Year, Gisele left the backcountry and moved to New York City in 1996 to begin her modeling career.
1999 was an explosive year for Gisele’s modeling career as she appeared on the cover of Vogue Magazine July, November, and December and was voted VH1’s Vogue Model of the Year. In 2000 she appeared on the cover of Vogue Magazine yet again for three consecutive months and on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine naming her “the most beautiful girl in the world”. Since then Gisele’s face has graced the covers of hundreds of top fashion magazines, such as Elle, W, and Allure, as well as broader publications like GQ, TIME, Vanity Fair, and Forbes Magazine. Featured in over 600 magazines world-wide, it is no wonder Gisele has established herself as an international icon. The versatile supermodel has starred in advertising campaigns anywhere from Nivea Lotion to Christian Dior.
After acknowledging Gisele’s endless achievements it is no surprise that from 2009-2010 she earned an estimated 25 million making her the top earning supermodel and one of the most powerful celebrities in the world. Gisele uses her success and power to also give back to the world and is involved in numerous charity activities, including the I Am African Campaign helping to protect against HIV/AIDS, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and is a goodwill ambassador for UN Environment Programme, to name a few. Supermodel or billionaire, Gisele Bundchen’s modeling career, success, and charity involvement is very inspiring. 

ZARZAR MODELS is one of the top female modeling agencies in the United States representing women in print editorials, high fashion runway, film, television commercials, and promotions. The agency has as partners fashion modeling agencies in major fashion cities such as Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, San Diego, San Francisco, Miami, New York, London, Paris, Milan, and Sao Paulo and recruits and represents models throughout the world through its global fashion and modeling network.

So the beautiful model Freja Beha is the winner of the First Face Spring Summer 2011 fashion runway countdown!

Today we feature Supermodel Karolina Kurkova

Karolína Isela Kurková (born in 1984) is a Czech model best known as a former Victoria’s Secret Angel and an aspiring actress. Famed photographer Mario Testino said of Kurková: “The proportions of her body and her face, as well as her energy level, make her a model who could fit almost into any moment”. Vogue editor Anna Wintour called her the “next supermodel”.

Karolína Kurková was born in Děčín, Czechoslovakia, to Josef Kurka, a Czech basketball player, and a Slovak mother. While Kurková was young, she was made fun of for her height. But after a friend sent photos of Kurková to an agency in Prague, she at 15 years of age landed a runway appearance, as well as a commercial and print advertising campaign. She later traveled to Milan, Italy to gain more experience and signed a modeling contract with Miuccia Prada.

In September 1999 Kurková appeared in the American edition of fashion and lifestyle magazine Vogue, and after moving to New York City at the age of 17, graced the cover of the February 2001 edition becoming one of the youngest models ever to appear on the magazine’s cover.

Following her Vogue cover, Kurková became recognized at haute couture fashion shows. Additionally, the lingerie brand Victoria’s Secret chose her to be a part of 2000’s fashion show webcast, though she was only 16 at the time. Prominent fashion houses such as Yves Saint Laurent signed Kurková to contracts, while print campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, Valentino, Louis Vuitton, John Galliano, Chanel, Christian Dior, Hugo Boss, Versace, H&M, and others helped expose her even more. In the 2002 Victoria’s Secret fashion show, she wore the multi-million dollar fantasy bra, worth almost $10 million and designed by Hearts on Fire. Other runway credits of hers include Alberta Ferretti, Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Christian Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Karl Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, and Vera Wang.

Kurková was named “Model of the Year” at the 2002 VH1/Vogue Fashion Awards, in part for her work ethic, having worked approximately twenty-three weeks straight.

Kurková has appeared in almost twenty Vogue magazine covers internationally, including the French, Italian, UK, German, Russian, Greek, and Korean editions, and has also appeared in international editions of Elle, Vanity Fair, and The Face. She has worked with noted fashion photographers like Steven Klein, Mario Sorrenti, and Mario Testino.

After being contracted as a Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2005, she was featured in the 2006 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, showcasing the $6.5 million fantasy bra decked with almost 2000 diamonds weighing 800 carats (160 g) and a centerpiece diamond brooch weighing 10 carats (2.0 g). As a Victoria’s Secret Angel, she received a star on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” prior to the 2007 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, appeared on the February 2008 cover of Esquire, re-creating the classic 1966 Angie Dickinson cover for the magazine’s 75th anniversary, and was chosen as part of People magazine’s 100 most beautiful people in the world. In December 2007, she could be seen in print ads for Dell.

Kurková is among the world’s top-earning models earning millions of United States dollars per year from her high powered modeling contracts. She has ranked among the top ten most highly paid models in the Forbes annual lists of the highest earning models in the world ranking as high as number six on planet earth.

In November 2008, E! Entertainment Television voted her the world’s sexiest woman, beating the likes of Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Gisele Bundchen, and her fellow Angels Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima. Karolina Kurkova also appeared in the live action 2009 G.I. Joe: The Rise Of Cobra film.
