World's TOP Earning Models..

Models, models, models. I guess every woman on earth once or so have a dream to be a model. I believe that. And seeing how models earn their income, it is possible to make the young girls to have a dream of becoming a model. Not just a regular model but the world's greatest model. Why? So they can earn really high income just like these 10 models. Forbes has listed these model as the world's top earning models. My fave are #1 Heidi Klum (always love her!), #2 Gisele Bundchen (for her confidence), #3 Natalia Vodianova (for her cute face) and #4 Doutzen Kroes (a really simple but beautiful Dutch lady).

1. Gisele Bundchen
$35 Million
The 27-year-old face graces ads for Pantene, Disney, Nivea, Vogue eyewear and Aquascutum, the U.K.-based luxury line. Her line of Grendene sandals, Ipanema by Gisele, banks her about $6 million a year. She dated Leonardo DiCaprio and now has a romance with Tom Brady.
2. Heidi Klum
$14 Million T
She is 34-year-old model, singer Seal's wife, a mother of four (2 boys, 1 girl, she's still pregnant for her 4th baby). She has renewed her Victoria's Secret contract, has a reality fashion show Project Runway and Germany's version of America's Next Top Model. She designs three lines of Mouawad jewelry and a line of Jordache jeans. Then there's new deals with Diet Coke, McDonald's, Volkswagen and Fontanis water. She's also coming out with a skincare line, In An Instant, to be marketed by powerhouse Guthy-Renker.
3. Kate Moss
$7.5 Million
The 34-year-old ended campaigns with Burberry, Stella McCartney, Dior and Versace and also her retail line with British retailer Topshop, carried in 29 countries. Other clients include Donna Karan, Longchamp, Agent Provocateur, Yves Saint Laurent, Roberto Cavalli and Rimmel.
4. Adriana Lima
$7 Million
The blue-eyed beauty, 27, is one of Victoria's Secret's model and Maybelline, for which she just renegotiated a multiyear deal. She also modeled for Mexico City-based department store giant Liverpool and graced the April cover of GQ magazine.
5. Doutzen Kroes
$6 Million
Million The Dutch model catwalks into the top five, thanks to being a triple contract threat: She reps fragrance and fashion with Calvin Klein's Eternity and White Label, cosmetics with L'Oréal and lingerie as the newest Victoria's Secret model. And let's not forget diamonds with De Beers.
6. Karolina Kurkova
$5 Million
She's a Czech beauty who has been around the industry much longer than would it would seem for someone only 23 years old. She appeared on Vogue at 16 and bagging her Victoria's Secret contract at 21. This year, she renegotiated her contract with the lingerie giant, as well as campaigned for Dell and Mexico City-based department store giant Liverpool.
7. Natalia Vodianova
$4.8 Million
Vodianova is the exclusive face of Calvin Klein's Euphoria fragrance. She also picked up deals with Paris-based beauty giant Guerlain, Chanel, Versace and Diane Von Furstenberg, and continues to model for David Yurman jewelry.
8. Carolyn Murphy
$4.5 Million
A 32-year-old model who has the porcelain-skinned beauty is not only the main face of cosmetics powerhouse Estée Lauder, but she adorns ads for Anne Klein, Tiffany & Co., Lord & Taylor and Jantzen swimwear.
9. Daria Werbowy
$3.8 Million
This striking brunette, 24, is the main visage for beauty behemoth Lancome, but that is far from all. She rotates ad campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Chanel, Valentino, H&M, Missoni and David Yurman jewelry.

10. Miranda Kerr
$3.5 Million
Kerr is getting a bit of a late start, breaking through in her delectable Victoria's Secret campaigns at the ripe age of 23. However, expect her to remain in angel wings for awhile--the lingerie giant just renegotiated her contract for multiple years. She's also the face of Australian department store David Jones.
