You Won't Believe Which Model Makes the Most Money

Forbes has released its annual list of the world's highest-paid models, based on data gathered on the 2013 fiscal year. Obviously, there are some familiar names on this list: Moss, Upton, Kerr, and Kloss all have their rightful place on the magazine's list of the top 21 most well-paid models in the world

But perhaps more surprising is who managed to make their way to the top few spots on the list. Here's a hint: the top-earning model in 2013 made an unbelievable $47 million last year, while the second-place model made a relatively modest $8 million.

So, who made the most cash in 2013? Scroll down to see the top 10 most high-earning models last year!

The Russian model and It-girl came in 10th place, raking in an impressive $4 million in 2013.

Upton made $7 million in 2013, landing her in fifth place.

The 40-year-old Moss made $7 million in 2013, though as we've seen, her assets soar in the $25-million range.

Lima's $8 million take-home in 2013 helped bump her into the top-three highest-paid models in the world.

Perhaps most surprising: Doutzen Kroes comes in at second place, having taken home $8 million in 2013.
