Forbes magazine recently released the latest list of the world’s most highly paid models. Ranked 8th on the list of the world’s most highly paid models is legendary American supermodel Carolyn Murphy with estimated earnings of $4.3 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 Paris 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. Carolyn Murphy earned approximately $4.3 million over the last year with a big Estée Lauder deal. New campaigns include Iceberg, Fashion Island and Peek & Cloppenburg.

Carolyn Murphy was born in Panama City, Florida, and grew up mainly in Northwest Florida, with brief periods in England and Maryland, as a result of her parents’ divorce. Her career began when at the age of 16, her mother enrolled her in a modeling school. Soon, she was modeling locally in Florida, as well as abroad in Japan and Paris. After graduating from high school in 1991, Carolyn Murphy went to New York. The one time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl has contracts with Tiffany & Co., Tom Ford, and many of the world’s most prestigious fashion companies. The model has also tried her hand at acting, appearing in Barry Levinson’s Liberty Heights. Endorsements over the years: Prada, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Jantzen, Lord & Taylor, Anne Klein, and Gap.

Carolyn Murphy was born in the United States. Discovered at the age of 15, she has proved a mainstay in the industry as she continues to appear in magazine editorials and campaigns throughout the world. She is also the signature face of Estee Lauder cosmetics and various fragrances. She has appeared in over 50 major ad campaigns and numerous fashion magazines worldwide and continues to do so during 2011.

Every step Carolyn Murphy takes in a photo set must feel like a money machine in motion. When the camera clicks for Estee Lauder, it means massive dollars and high powered modeling contracts. When she poses and models for Tiffany & Co, another block of six figure checks start coming in and if Carolyn Murphy feels like being sexy in her Jantzen, then it is because she is being very well compensated! Carolyn Murphy lists her top 3 models as Lauren Hutton, Christy Turlington, & Kate Moss. She also feels that Coco Chanel, Calvin Klein, and Karl Lagerfeld have revolutionized the fashion industry.

As one of the most prolific and famous models in recent memory, Carolyn Murphy has accomplished nearly every modeling goal imaginable. Throughout it all Carolyn Murphy has handled herself with grace and humility, remaining not just one of fashion’s favorite models, but also one of the most down to earth people in the modeling industry.

The signature face of Estee Lauder Cosmetics and its array of blue chip fragrances has achieved a dream editorial career with dream contracts. Her longevity in the modeling industry has been a masterpiece of management on the part of her very devoted modeling agency. Carolyn Murphy has been with Estee Lauder for approximately 11 years and just signed another high powered contract for a couple more years. She feels very grateful maybe because she grew up with the Estee Lauder brand.

“When you are called a supermodel, how do you feel?”

“I roll my eyes!! I think that it takes a whole team to create a model’s career. The photographer, hair and make-up artists, stylists and your agent, they are the building blocks to a successful career.”

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!

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.
