The stats are in and Miranda Kerr has been crowned as one of Forbes‘ highest-paid supermodels for 2014, with a whopping $7 million to her name over the last 12 months. Not surprisingly, Gisele Bündchen took the major prize, but Miranda still managed to make more coin than the likes of Cara Delevingne, Karlie Kloss, Candice Swanepoel and Alessandra Ambrosio. Looks like you don’t need those Victoria’s Secret wings to help you fly.
So, what has our dimple-faced, doe-eyed sweetheart been up to over the last 12 months to overtake these other big-name, super-trendy models? Other than causing fist fights in Ibiza between the barely-legal Biebs and baby-daddy Orlando Bloom, Miranda has been one busy woman.
We’re talking magazine covers, advertising campaigns and more. We see her face so darn often that it’s easy to forget what she’s been working on. Scroll through some Miranda moments from the last 12 months below. If anything, it’s an absolute joyride seeing how she swaps from good girl to bad girl so often.
Miranda got up close and personal with Spanish actor and model Jon Kortajarena for the 7 For All Mankind Fall 2014 campaign dubbed #7Obsessions, with the steamy images released earlier this month.
Miranda has been gallivanting around for Escada, after being named the face of its new Joyful fragrance in March. It’s been all sunshine, rainbows and pretty floral ensembles for this particular job.
Her girl-next-door image was completely ditched in her shoot with Net-a-Porter, straddling motorbikes and rocking plunging necklines for the online retailer’s The EDIT magazine.
Miranda caused a stir for all the right reasons when she graced the cover of Vogue Australia’s July issue. One of our forum members, fluxxx, commented, “I kinda like it, it’s nice to see her not in the oversexualized styling.” Miranda was also picked as the cover girl for this year’s May issue of Vogue Taiwan and ELLE Spain, plus the June issue of U.K. Harper’s Bazaar, just to name a few.
We’re not going to lie, the model had us a little confused when she decided to design a tea set range for Royal Albert. Nonetheless, it’s been one of Miranda’s biggest projects as of late that doesn’t completely rely on her face or body.
It’s without doubt that Miranda’s contract as Swarovski‘s global ambassador brings in some big bucks. She models in its campaigns, features in the commercials and attends all of its glamorous events.
It was a little predictable when Miranda was named the face of H&M back in February, but also fitting in the lead-up to the Swedish retail giant’s first Australian store. Either way, it’s a huge brand to add to an ever-growing portfolio.
