SOUTH African Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel has again made the Forbes Top 10 highest paid models list — with earnings of around 3.1-million (R26-million) over the past year.

The 23-year-old lingerie babe is the youngest model on the Forbes list – topped by supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who is the only model earning more than 10-million (R83-million) per year.

Despite Swanepoel having age on her side, she has a long road to travel to rival Bundchen’s bulging bank account balance.

Swanepoel, who was spotted eight years ago in a flea market in Durban, has been featured on the covers of glossy heavyweights such as Vogue, Elle, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, and can call on Tommy Hilfiger, Dolce and Gabbana, Fendi, Chanel, Diane von Furstenberg, Givenchy and Jean Paul Gaultier as some of her admirers. She has modelled for all of the above listed fashion heavy hitters at both of Europe’s fashion meccas Paris and Milan, and at New York Fashion Week.

Candice stayed in the same position (10th) although she did manage to make approximately $1 Million more than she did last year. You can follow Candice on twitter @AngelCandice
