5 of the World’s Most Successful Supermodels-Turned-Business Women
As the world watched the World Cup winners receive their trophy from Gisele Bundchen yesterday, we couldn’t help but wonder what other models have turned into successful business women. From product lines to TV shows, here’s a look at five of the world’s most successful supermodels-turned-business women.
Although she no longer models, her Iman Cosmetics line brings in about $25 million a year. She also has a line of clothes and accessories called Global Chic that is sold on the Home Shopping Network.
Arguably the most well-known model in the world, Crawford retired from the business in 2000. After that, she created her own line of beauty products called Meaningful Beauty and has furniture lines at J.C. Penney and Raymore & Flanagan, as well as her eponymous Cindy Crawford Home Collection.
Known as a style icon as well as a model, Moss has moved into designing for Topshop, her own purse collections and even a line of carphone accessories from Carphone Warehouse.
At one point, Banks was one of the biggest model names in the industry. Although her eponymous talk show is no longer on the air, she continues to dominate TV with her hugely successful America’s Next Top Model. She also made the New York Times best seller list for her Young Adult series called Modelland.
This is one model who just doesn’t stop. Not only does she have a collection that she deidgned coming out with DKNY, but she’s also been an actress in The Face Of An Angel and Tulip Fever, both expected to be released later this year. She even dabbled in singing with an acoustic duet cover version of “Sonnentanz” with Will Heard.
