Even models were hit by the recession, but not the women who make up the Forbes list of Top-Earning Models. The fashion industry was less likely to take financial risks in finding fresh faces, so they stuck to the reliable gang of recession-proof good-lookers.
All the obvious one-namers are on the list including Kate, Heidi and Gisele, and maybe some lesser-known names to the less fashion-obsessed, like Adriana Lima, Doutzen Kroes, Alessandra Ambrosio, Carolyn Murphy, Miranda Kerr, Daria Werbowy, Natalia Vodianova. It's Gisele Bündchen that takes the number one spot for making approximately $25 million in the last year.
