Doutzen Kroes tops annual list of highest-paid models

In 2015 it looked like the model’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (November 22) that Kroes is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between October 2016 and October 2017, 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 Dutch model 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 Kroes Burger” chain) in Amsterdam, a Football Team (the “Eastermar Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderkroes - Netherlands), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Doutzen) and a fashion line called “Doutzen Kroes Seduction”.

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