Being one of the world’s top models have always been a pretty lucrative career, but the advent of Instagram means the best of the best have a whole new way to rake in cash with their talents.
Lingerie company Bluebella recently ranked the top 10 most influential lingerie models on the social media site based on the size of their followings, according to Brobile. These models may not be making Kim Kardashian’s reported $500,000 a post, but top earners still get paid in the ballpark of $70,000 a pop.
Here’s the list:
1. CANDICE SWANEPOEL:
The current queen of Victoria’s Secret, Candice Swanepoel, is, of course, the number one on the list. Swanepoel earns as much as $70,000 per post, according to Bluebella, and still dominates the field.
2. ALEXIS REN:
Model Alexis Ren is number two on the list with 11.7 million followers.
3. ANA CHERI:
Ana Cheri, a model and fitness entrepreneur (she sells supplements, swimwear, and workout gear) is in number three, with 11 million followers on her main account.
4. ABIGAIL RATCHFORD:
The self-styled “queen of curves” comes in at number four with 8.2 million followers.
5. ROSIE HUNTINGTON-WHITLEY
The top spots, of course, start to get very Victoria’s Secret-heavy. Rosie Huntington-Whitely comes in at number five with 7.6 million followers.
6. VIKI ODINTCOVA:
The Russians are also a strong presence on lingerie-insta: Viki Odintcova, 24 has 4.5 million followers and claimed the number six spot on Bluebella’s list.
