South African model, Candice Swanepoel, is among the top three highest-paid Victoria Secret models to grace the runway this year. In fact, she’s made the list of top earners on the Victoria’s Secret runway four times in the past ten years!

Candice started walking the runway with Victoria’s Secret in 2007, and earned her spot among the top three earners for the first time in 2012.

Candice went on to earn the number three spot in 2014, 2015 and again this year.

The data comes after identified the highest-earning models on the Victoria’s Secret runway for the past 10 years, and it’s quite interesting.

Heidi Klum has been the top-earning Victoria’s Secret model over the last ten years (with $14 million), but when she left the runway business in order to pursue a career in the media and elsewhere in 2009, Adriana Lima began her eight year reign as the top-earning Victoria’s Secret model.

In 2017, Adriana Lima is still the top-earning Victoria’s Secret model with $10. 5 million, followed by Karlie Kloss with $10 million and of course, our very own Candice Swanepoel with $7 million.

This year the Victoria’s Secret fashion Show left fans with a lot of surprises. It’s believed that if Kendall Jenner didn’t swap her Victoria’s Secret wings for another lingerie company, she would’ve been this year’s top earner.

Another surprise came after Gigi Hadid and musical headliner Katy Perry didn’t meet China’s standards for granting visas, which means they couldn’t travel for the show taking place in Shanghai at the moment. Gigi has almost been as successful as Kendall over the last couple of years. She earned a whopping $9 million last year.

The show in Shanghai is set to air on CBS on 28 November 2017.
