Lara Stone 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 Sunday (August 19) that Stone is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between July 2017 and July 2018, a nearly $20 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 $145 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 Stone Burger” chain) in Amsterdam, a Football Team (the “Geldrop Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderstone - Netherlands), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Lara) and a fashion line called “Lara Stone Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Lara fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
