Janice Dickinson tops annual list of highest-paid models
In 2011 it looked like the model’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (March 11) that Dickinson is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between February 2013 and February 2014, a nearly $30 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 American model-photographer has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Dickinson Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdickinson - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Janice) and a fashion line called “Janice Dickinson Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Janice fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
