So what do Victoria’s Secret models make? What are their net worths? We’ll look at Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, and Elsa Hosk…
Victoria’s Secret models make quite a range of salaries. But there is a general consensus that they don’t make quite as much as they used to. Now that the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is used as a launch point to a acting/modeling/reality career, salaries have dropped.
Models are not simply hired for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. When a model signs on with Victoria’s Secret for the Fashion Show, they sign on for a period of time, which requires them to be essentially exclusive to the company. According to Miranda Kerr, that time period is around 3 months, during which they must work exclusively promoting Victoria’s Secret.
For that commitment, the lesser known models earn about $100,000. Not bad for a three month gig.
That being said, the most well known Victoria’s Secret Models can do much better than just $100,000. What do Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel, Lily Aldridge, and Elsa Hosk make? Read on…
Adriana Lima is Victoria’s Secret’s oldest model, in terms of how long she has been with the organization. She started modeling for them in 1999. Since then, she has consistently appeared at shows, including the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
Lima has worked for all of the top brands, earning significant salaries from each of them. She worked for Guess, Givenchy, Vera Wang, Dior, and others.
Over the past several years, she has been ranked as one of the top paid models, in competition with a few other top models. According to Forbes, she earned $7 million in 2012, $8 million in 2013 and 2014, and $9-11 million in 2018-2018. This year, she is likely to exceed $12 million.
While a portion of that is from Victoria’s Secret, Lima also earns from several other companies that she represents, including Desigual, Calzedonia, and Sportmax.
In total, Adriana Lima net worth in 2018 is estimated at nearly $70 million.
Alessandra Ambrosio doesn’t quite make as much as Adriana Lima. She has also been with Victoria’s Secret for over a decade, and she has appeared in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for many years.
Ambrosio started modeling at 12, and she quickly became well known in modeling circles. In the mid-2000s, she was picked to be the main model for the Pink brand from Victoria’s Secret.
Ambrosio has many jobs outside of Victoria’s Secret, including Dior, Ralph Lauren, and Armani. She also has her own swimwear and clothing brand, which licenses products to other companies to produce. The royalties pay her a pretty penny.
According to Forbes as well as other sources, she has made between $5 million and $10 million nearly every year over the past several years.
In total, we estimate Allesandra Ambrosio net worth in 2018 at $50 million.

We estimate Lily Aldrin net worth in 2018 at $8 million.
