Thanks to last week's examination of the Forbes Top Model list, we've gotten more emails than ever about how models get paid. Here's a quick breakdown: Models make most from ads. Hilary Rhoda pulls in $1.5 million because she's Estee Lauder's new face, not because Vogue Italia keeps putting her on the cover. Gisele hasn't walked many runways, but because of her Victoria's Secret earnings, she makes more than most hedge fund managers. Meanwhile, models who do get booked on catwalks pull thousands of dollars per season - I remember last year, when a designer offered Irina Lazareanu $10,000 just to walk. But more often, the girls get paid (at least partly) in clothes. Here's a good example: When we saw the darling Chanel Iman at Marie Claire's Supermodel party last week, she was wearing a killer pair of Dolce & Gabbana heels. The very same killer pair that she wore last season when she walked in their show. So jealous!
