Cara Delevingne becomes Britain’s top paid model after raking in £16M last year

Cara Delevingne has emerged as Britain’s top earning model, after raking in a whopping £15.7million last year.

The 28-year-old catwalk favourite’s earnings, which have boosted her net worth to £30.2million, dwarf those of supermodel Kate Moss, 46, who pocketed £9million.

And while Kate’s earnings bring her net worth up to an impressive £58million, Cara has boosted her purse through modelling, film work, property, a novel and albums.

According to The Sun, blonde beauty Cara paid £2.5million in Corporation Tax and Social Security from her company Cara & Co., after earning £43,000 per day.

London native Cara also earns big thanks to modelling for some of the industry’s biggest and cosmetics brands, including Burberry, DKNY, Jimmy Choo and Rimmel. 

In 2019 interview, Cara, who is said to be a director of her father Charles’ £45million real estate firm, admitted that money isn’t everything for her.

She said: ‘I had a very privileged upbringing in terms of being able to travel and growing up in London, which was incredible for me.

‘Having a wonderful family and my father… he didn’t grow up with a lot of money and he is extremely ambitious and driven to look after his family and all of us.

‘I realised money isn’t everything. You get to the point where you’re like, “Oh, I’ve made money but I’m so deeply unhappy and alone.”‘

The news comes weeks after Cara hopped on the ‘post a pic of’ trend, in which fans suggest photos they would like to see from their favourite celebrities. 

She looked incredible in one throwback lingerie snap she posted after a follower asked her to share a photo of herself at work.

Cara modelled Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty range in the photo with knee-high stockings, high heeled boots and a chunky metal chain around her waist.
