Christie Brinkley tops annual list of highest-paid models

In 2018 it looked like the model’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (September 28) that Brinkley is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between August 2019 and August 2020, a nearly $60 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 has an estimated net worth of $275 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 Brinkley Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Monroe Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbrinkley - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Christie) and a fashion line called “Christie Brinkley Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Christie fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
