Is This The End Of The Supermodel Era? Supermodels Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, Tyra Banks, Cindy Crawford, And Kathy Ireland – Supermodels Or Business Giants In The Fashion Modeling Industry?

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?

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!

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.

At Paris Fashion Week, she mixes it up with stints in shows that range from the dramatic Viktor & Rolf to the fun color of Sonia Rykiel, her 8th time doing a runway show for the designer. She says the best part of her job is the dress up.

When Karlie Kloss was 13, she was discovered at a charity fashion show in St. Louis, Missouri. She was encouraged and inspired to model by one of her teachers in Webster Groves High School. In 2007, she began her very prestigious modeling career with advertisements for Donna Karan, Chloe, Lacoste, Alexander McQueen, Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Gap, Dior, Hermes, Oscar de la Renta, Sonia Rykiel, Topshop, Barneys New York, and American Eagle.

The World’s Top Earning Models – Daria Werbowy $4.5 Million Per Year

Forbes magazine recently released the latest list of the world’s most highly paid models. Ranking in 6th place on the Forbes list of the most highly paid models in the world with estimated earnings of $4.5 million United States Dollars over the past year is Canadian and Eastern European beauty Daria Werbowy.

Daria Werbowy is a Ukrainian Canadian model. She is perhaps best known as a spokesperson for the French beauty brand Lancome. Although born in Krakow Poland, Daria Werbowy holds both Canadian and Ukrainian citizenship. When she was three years old, Daria Werbowy’s Ukrainian parents moved to Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. At age 14, Daria Werbowy was 5’11” and sporting braces.

Daria Werbowy had never seriously considered modeling, but found herself launched into the business after meeting a schoolmate’s mother who headed a local model and talent management agency in Toronto called Susan J. Model & Talent Management. At age 14, Daria Werbowy won a national modeling contest, but after a year of working with Susan J. Model & Talent, however, Daria Werbowy thought she could be doing more with another agency and left.

After switching over to Elite Models, Daria Werbowy began landing several prominent bookings in Canada but still had not achieved much international success. Daria lived in London and Greece, where there were a very large number of castings, but no work. Her first runway season was disrupted and her bookings canceled after the September 11 attacks in New York City. After a disappointing eight months, Daria Werbowy returned to Canada. She gave modeling a final shot as a means to fund her art school education.

“I returned to New York, met my agent and the next day I had an exclusive deal with Prada. From then on it was all a bit of a blur.”

When Elite Canada’s head scout, Elmer Olsen, started his own agency, Daria Werbowy followed and her career began to flourish. Within a few years, and under the guidance of International Management Group (IMG), Daria Werbowy had gained a foothold on the international modeling stage. Daria considered taking a break from the fashion industry at age 27 to sail around the world.

Though she relinquished the world’s No.1 runway model status to new “it girls” according to some industry insiders, Daria Werbowy holds the record for opening and closing the most shows in one season. To date, Daria Werbowy’s clients have included Lancome, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Pepe Jeans, Roberto Cavalli, Gucci, Hermes, Valentino, David Yurman, Missoni, Versace, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel. In her first season, Fall/Winter 2003, Daria Werbowy captured two of the modeling world’s most coveted assignments: the cover of Vogue Italia three times (July, August and October); and Prada’s Fall/Winter ad campaign.

Photographed by Steven Meisel, she was presented on the September 2004 cover of American Vogue as one of the “Models of the Moment”. In July 2007, Forbes Magazine listed Daria Werbowy as the ninth highest earning model in the world. Her earnings between June 2006 and June 2007 were in the order of $3.5 million United States Dollars, far below her 12 month 2010-2011 earnings of $4.5 million United States Dollars which just ranked her as the world’s 6th most highly paid model.

In 2008 Daria Werbowy embarked on a three month journey across the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. On September 6, 2008, Daria was inducted into Canada’s Walk Of Fame. She is the second Canadian model, after Linda Evangelista, to have a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame. Earlier that year, Daria Werbowy launched a three piece makeup collection by Lancôme for Sephora. The proceeds went to the Vik Muniz charity Centrao Especial for underprivileged youth in Brazil. Daria Werbowy was one of the faces on one of the fourteen covers of V Magazine in the September 2008 issue. Each cover boasts a head shot of a famous model, either from the new crop of leading models (Agyness Deyn, Lara Stone, Natasha Poly, Anja Rubik, etc.) or the supermodel era (Christy Turlington, Eva Herzigova).

Vogue Paris declared her one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.

Daria Werbowy is featured in the 2011 Pirelli Calendar photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.

She ranked No. 6 on Forbes The World’s Top Earning Models list, with an estimated earnings of $4.5 million since May of last year (2010-2011). Daria Werbowy earned $4.5 million United States Dollars since last May, anchored by a posh contract from fragrance and makeup giant Lancôme Paris.

Over the last year Daria Werbowy, who was born in Poland and raised in Canada, inked deals with Hudson Bay, Stefanel, Joseph, Oroton, and YSL. Other modeling contracts include: Lancôme, Versace, and H&M.

With stunning cosmetics contracts Daria has leapt effortlessly into the financial VIP club. Even better, her editorial profile is so consistently flawless that Daria Werbowy has emerged as the great breakthrough model of her decade.
