Cara Delevingne tops annual list of highest-paid models
In 2012 it looked like the model’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Friday (July 25) that Delevingne is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between June 2013 and June 2014, a nearly $20 million lead over her closest competition.
People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The British model has an estimated net worth of $145 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Delevingne Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “London Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdelevingne - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Cara) and a fashion line called “Cara Delevingne Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Cara fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
