Deshauna Barber tops annual list of highest-paid models
In 2016 it looked like the model’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Monday (December 10) that Barber is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2017 and November 2018, 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 Barber Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Columbus Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderbarber - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Deshauna) and a fashion line called “Deshauna Barber Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Deshauna fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
