Melania Trump 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 Saturday (April 10) that Trump is the highest-paid model in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between March 2020 and March 2021, 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 American 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 Trump Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “ Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondertrump - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Melania) and a fashion line called “Melania Trump Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Melania fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
