A distant second place is occupied by Doutzen Kroes. The dutch model raked in $5 million last year. Kroes’s contract with Victoria’s Secret has significantly pushed up her earnings.

She’s a showstopper in every sense, and has been outpacing her rivals in terms of earnings for a while. This Brazilian bombshell earned $30.5 million last year (before taxes and fees).
