Gisele’s Salary Down $10 Million


Forbes released its annual list of the world's highest-paid models. The five top-earning models from June 2008 to June 2009 are exactly the same as last year's: Gisele, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss, Adriana Lima, and Doutzen Kroes. How thrilling. However a few of them are making less money. Gisele only made $25 million this year, though she made $35 million last year (even though she told GQ she didn't really make $35 million, but let's not let that get in the way of the fun of this year's list). Heidi Klum made a little bit more money this year, raking in $16 million, as opposed to $14 million last year. Kate Moss made $8.5 million this year and $7.5 million last year. New on this year's list is Alessandra Ambrosio, who made $6 million but was not on last year's list (presumably because she had a baby). And Emanuela de Paula made the list for the first time, coming in as the eleventh-highest earner, with a $2.5 million salary.
