Stunning Models Make the World of Fashion All the More Captivating
What would the fashion world be like without it’s stunning models to don the latest glamorous garments and strut down the runway? Great human beauty has an almost otherworldly power. A fact that hasn’t been lost on fashion houses. Super models in particular are like celebrities of the catwalk drawing our attention to themselves and illuminating the clothes they wear.
The top models can earn a dazzling amount of money. According to Forbes the 21 models that earned the most in 2014 managed to rake in a staggering $142 million. It turns out though that it’s not just their beauty but businesses acumen as well that’s helping them to generate so much money.
Gisele Bundchen (pictured below) once again finds herself first in the rankings for the eighth year in a row. The Brazilian beauty earned $47 million before taxes and fees. Lucrative contracts with H&M, Chanel and Carolina Herrera. A share of the profits from the jelly sandals she designs for Brazilian shoemaker Grendene. She also earns money for being the ‘face’ of Pantene hair products and Oral-B in Brazil. Then there is her own line of Hope Lingerie — Gisele Bundchen Intimates.
In this section I’ll be writing about some of the most stunning models from around the world.
