South Africa’s Candice Friday, May 6th, 2011

This is quite some interesting news as we know that being a Supermodel who stays relevant is hard enough. Candice is definitely making waves, and fast in the Fashion Industry, with just an Italian Vogue Cover & a Victoria’s Secret deal in less than two years. It is quite commendable that she closes this Power List as a New Entry for Supermodels who have made the most earning from May  2010 – Present with $3 Million Dollars!
It may be a far cry from the large amounts models use to make before the recession, but studies show that “consumers are again cautiously spending on luxury goods, the 10 top-earning female models on the planet made a combined $112 million in the 12 months to May–up 30% from a total of $86.5 million over the previous year”.
Although, “most of this gain was enjoyed by the top three: Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum and Kate Moss who have transformed themselves from supermodels to business moguls, stepping off the runway and into the role of designers, entrepreneurs and pop icons.” – Forbes.
Congratulations to Candice for making this list as well as joining African Power Names like Iman & Oluchi in putting Africa on the Fashion Map!
Other Names of the Forbes 2011 List are:
  • Adriana Lima
  • Alessandra Ambrosio
  • Daria Werbowy
  • Lara Stone
  • Carolyn Murphy
  • Natalia Vodianova
