Yoncé Taught Us: Jourdan Dunn And Joan Smalls Top The Highest Paid Model List For 2014
We remember the 1990’s super models that paved the way but it’s the big earners today taking leaps on Forbes lists. We’re proud to say that two black models top the list of high earners this year. Joan Smalls and Jordan Dunn, both featured in Beyonce’s “Yonce” music video. They used beauty brains and business to break out 6 figure salaries. Peep the list to see what they earned and how they became million dollar women.
Joan is known for her fierce catwalk after being singled out at a 2010 Givenchy runway show. The brown beauty is actually Puerto Rican, moving to New York to pursue modeling at 11 years old.
With a Tiffany & Co contract, H&M and Neiman Marcus campaigns and being the first Puerto Rican ambassador for Estee Lauder, she earned $3 million this year.
Joan photoed here with Rihanna and model friend, Carl Devingne who also earned $3.5 million modeling last year.
Jourdan Dunn earned cosmetics signings with Maybelline and Burberry English Rose Makeup. She also models for Express, H&M, Topshop and Target. How much money did the 24 year old earn this year? Guess!
