Beauty Earns Bucks

The person who said, "don’t rely on your looks" was probably ugly. The fact is, if you have the looks you’ll make it, even in this economy.  We can all thank Forbes for compiling the list of the highest-paid models, just in case you didn’t already feel bad about yourself. The Forbes annual list, not only, includes some of the most beautiful people in the world, it also includes a lot of money. In the number two and three spot were models Heidi Klum and Kate Moss, both making more money than last year. Then there was Gisele Bundchen who had a $10 million income loss as compared to last year; Bundchen only made $25 million. Which happened to be enough money to maintain her number one status as the "highest-paid model", for the second year in a row. The Brazilian model did numerous campaigns including Versace, True Religion jeans, Dior and Ebel watches. To make it to the top models must encompass a very rare range, the ability to go from high fashion to mass market. Meaning that the multi-hyphenate model has replaced the supermodel era, giving top models more earning power than ever before. Despite that, the person who said, "looks fade" was telling the truth. Flaunt it while you’ve still got it girls, or go into endorsement television.
