Kate Moss

Kate Moss is the richest model in the UK


Kate Moss has been named the UK's richest model, and with 25 years work experience in the industry, she's certainly earned it.

Countless catwalk appearances, magazine covers, advertising campaigns and, of course, her Topshop collaborations, have all helped the supermodel amass a fortune estimated at £55 million.

Next in line is German-born, but UK-based, Claudia Schiffer, who is worth somewhere in the region of £50 million.

Naomi Campbell claimed third place with £20 million, less than half of what her friend and contemporary Mossy is said to be worth, while fourth and fifth places goes to 37-year-old Alek Wek and 36-year-old Erin O'Connor respectively.

Although £55 million is undoubtedly an huge sum of money, it was not enough to gain Moss a place in the Sunday Times Rich List, which is a compilation of the 1,000 wealthiest members of the UK. To be a member of that particular club, you need at least £85 million in the bank.

Still, we're sure Mossy's happy with being the nation's number one model. Not that she needed her bank balance to tell her that…
