How much does it pay to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel?
Becoming an Angel isn’t an easy job to land and you can’t forget the annoyingly sexist questions that reporters always ask the women.
Contracts with Victoria’s Secret reportedly start around $100,000, according to Page Six, but the top earners for the iconic lingerie brand aren’t doing too bad for themselves, according to Forbes, mostly because they juggle multiple modeling gigs all year.
Here’s how much money the most successful Victoria’s Secret Angels made in 2015:

Adriana Lima — $9 Million

Lima has been with Victoria’s Secret since 2000, making her the most senior Angel in the company’s history.  The 34-year-old Brazilian makes most of her money from modeling contracts with Marc Jacobs, H&M, Desigual, Maybelline, and Vogue Eyewear.
