The Year’s Top Paid Models and Their Digital Footprints

Candice Adriana Alessandra
Tuesday night, world-famous lingerie label Victoria’s Secret will have their 2014 fashion show broadcast on CBS (10pm ET). Whatever your feelings on the subject, few things in our culture are more straightforward when it comes to explaining them (“models prance in underwear”).

E! provides a fun breakdown of the numbers behind the broadcast — which will include performances by Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, and Ariana Grande — at their site here.

SO, inspired by the buzz surrounding this, we’ve set about assessing and evaluating the online prominence and influence of those admired victors of the genetic lottery (the female version, at least, with an intention of visiting the males next); including three of those most prominent in Victoria’s Secret‘s current campaigns.

Here we look at those of whom the camera is, and advertisers are, so very enamored. And those who — in addition to their looks — demonstrated significant enough smarts and business acumen to have negotiated for themselves, during the past year, the industry’s most hefty paydays. These are the year’s top paid models, as reported by Forbes here.

We’ll leave it to you to compare their looks, and we’ll leave it to Forbes to compare their salaries (although that info is included below). But rest assured that we are the authority when it comes to PeekScores. Clicking the items in the list below will lead you to the corresponding woman’s PeekYou profile, from where you can explore social pages, home pages, photos, interviews, videos, and much more.
