While you’re scraping by, wondering how your Con Ed bill jumped so high over the past month, supermodels like Gisele Bündchen, Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne are too busy raking in the dough by the second. Literally. Print Detective set to sleuthing exactly how much money the world’s highest paid models made this year per second, using data from the Forbes list of 2014’s highest paid models.
Gisele Bündchen made $1.49 a second last year – one penny shy of being able to buy a pack of Orbit gum at the bodega every second — or $89.40 per minute. Kate Moss, Kate Upton, Miranda Kerr and Liu Wen clocked in at $0.22 per second; Jourdan Dunn, Natalia Vodianova, Karlie Kloss and Carolyn Murphy made $0.13; while Cara Delevingne and Anja Rubik collected $0.11 per second. Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel, Lindsay Wixson, Erin Heatherton and Erin Wasson are all members of the 10 cent club.
Take a look at the full list and watch the models make money as the seconds go by.
