Success For British Models: Kate Moss Triples Salary In One Year
The demand for Kate Moss is growing and growing, as her salary is reported to have tripled within this last year alone!
£11.72 million is what Kate’s assets are worth, according to The Telegraph. Two of Kate’s companies published their accounts recently and the figures were astonishing! Although the number’s very large, I can’t say I’m surprised as Kate’s business ventures never seem to stop, especially this past year. Her collaboration with Topshop, her contract with Rimmel, her book The Kate Moss Book and her appearance at the Olympics Closing Ceremony were just a few of the opportunities she’s had to rake in the cash!
It doesn’t look like Kate will be making any disappearances soon, considering she has landed a role in an upcoming film, About Time. Oh, and let’s not forget her accessory line at Carphone Warehouse. I’ve officially lost count of how many things Kate has going on right now but it’s definitely clear that she will continue to be one successful lady!
Models Flying the British Flag
Fortunately, the UK has seen some amazing success stories from the modelling industry. How can we forget the spectacular Naomi Campbell! Her net worth is presumed to be around $48 million and with her latest opportunities, I think that figure is slightly higher now.
She was the star of the show, The Face which rivaled America’s Next Top Model and saw Naomi, Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova lead teams of wannabe models through challenges and eliminations. Yes, Coco and Karolina are massive but if I’m honest, Naomi made the show and her feisty, British attitude looked like it scared the hell out of the other models, especially when she infamously yelled “check your lipstick before you come and talk to me!” at a tiny Coco Rocha. That left me in stitches! Anyway, her earnings from the show will only increase as the show is coming over to the UK and she will be a mentor… exciting!
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley isn’t doing too bad for herself either. She recently made it in Zarzar Models Top 25 Rich List of the highest paid models. The Victoria’s Secret model also has many other things going for her apart from gracing some very prestigious catwalks. She took over for Megan Fox in the hit movie Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, which was a huge international success and would have earned her tons. Born in Plymouth, she’s certainly representing the UK well as she continues to look gorgeous on the covers of Elle, Vogue, Glamour, GQ… you name it!
I can’t talk about successful British models without mentioning Cara Delevingne, can I? Although her salaries and net worth seem to be quite hush-hush, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the girl is rich, very rich. The London born and bred model is an international phenomenon and is wanted by an endless number of designers. She’s modelled for the likes of Chanel, Burberry, DKNY and won ‘Model of the Year’ at the British Fashion Awards last year.
