Karen Mulder tops annual list of highest-paid models
In 2019 it looked like the model’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Sunday (January 23) that Mulder is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between December 2020 and December 2021, 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 Dutch model-singer 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 Mulder Burger” chain) in Amsterdam, a Football Team (the “Vlaardingen Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondermulder - Netherlands), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Karen) and a fashion line called “Karen Mulder Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Karen fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
