Victoria's Secret models were paid HOW MUCH last year? Sigh...
See who topped the list.
Former Angel Gisele Bundchen topped the list with $45 million in 2012. WWD reports that fellow Angels Adriana Lima made $7.3 million and Doutzen Kroes took home $6.9 million. Alessandra Ambrosio earned $6.6 million and street style star Miranda Kerr banked $4 million. Candice Swanepoel rounded out the top 10 with $3.1 million.
“Becoming an Angel significantly increases a model’s earning potential due to their visibility around the world,” Richard Habberley at DNA Model Management, which represents Ambrosio and Kroes told WWD. “It changes the girls’ careers completely.”

Carole White, founder of Premier Model Management in London, said, “It was the most massive thing that could have happened to Miranda Kerr. It made her name. Who had heard of her before Victoria’s Secret? They are great at taking a girl — a good-looking model, but a catalogue model — and launching her into the stratosphere. It’s like a modeling medal.”
