Gisele Bundchen is the highest paid model in the world
Brazilian supermodel, Gisele Bundchen, is the highest paid model in the world, according to Forbes. In 2011, she earned a whopping $45 million! Bundchen has been the face of many high-end brands and big budget ad campaigns, and she gets plenty of modeling and spokesperson gigs. Interestingly, the three highest paid models are all moms over the age of 30.
Kate Moss was ranked second with earnings of $9.2 million, and Natalia Vodianova was third, earning $8.6 million. That means Gisele out-earned the second highest paid model by more than five times.
MM’s Lauren WK scores cover of Bizarre Magazine
Congratulations to Model Mayhem’s Lauren WK on her recent cover of Bizarre Magazine shot by Christian Saint and styled by Abigail Greydanus. Lauren is a beautiful model with extensive experience in the industry. She has numerous publications under her belt and we are sure that she will continue to excel at what she does.
MM’s Ksenia Scores UMM Cover
Congratulations to MM’s Ksenia on scoring another cover. This time, it is the cover of UMM, a well-known Canadian magazine. Ksenia was featured in the May 14 Modeling News Roundup for her FHM cover and this is another impressive credit. We wish Ksenia all the best and to seeing more of her work.
MM’s Sierra Rene making great strides in the modeling industry
Ohio-based Sierra Rene is a great model and she is accomplishing a lot considering the limited amount of time that she has been in the industry. She is in the issue of Ultimate MMA magazine that’s about to hit newsstands. Additionally, she is winning bikini competitions all over the place and is quickly becoming a familiar face. Sierra was one of five finalists in the Planet Beach International Cover Model 2012 competition.
MM’s Leticia Farr: An “overnight” success?
MM’s Leticia Farr is a beautiful Brazilian model living in Las Vegas. Although she has only been on Model Mayhem for just over two months, she has accomplished a lot in her short time. She’s also going to be featured in Ultimate MMA magazine, CRED magazine in July and also ModelsMania magazine in their August and January issues. In addition, she will be a featured model for Bruvado Beer in a national ad campaign. Can you believe that she has done all this in just two months? We are definitely excited to see what she will do next!
