They are stunning, they are hot and they are our top 10 highest paid female models for the year 2011.

The ranking, conducted by Forbes magazine earlier, reveals that the combined earnings of these 10 super-stunners has been $112 million in the last twelve months which was up 30 percent from the previous year.

Coming in at top three are supermodels Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Klum and Kate Moss enjoying most of this gain. All of the names enlisted are not only accomplished supermodels but successful entrepreneurs, designers and role models.

A significant point that Forbes mentioned in the listing is that while the elite supermodels are getting paid properly; newcomers are not enjoying the same pay-days as they did before recession.

New additions to this year's list include Lara Catherina Stone and Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel.

Lara Catherina Stone, a Dutch model who is famous as the face of the luxe brand Calvin Klein. She was also involved in a number of other campaigns for Prada, Versace and Karl Lagerfeld. With earnings worth $4.4 million, Lara enters the list of elite models across the globe.

Swanepoel, on the other hand, debuts with estimated net earnings of $3 million, has recently evoked a lot of controversy with the media and critics proclaiming her to be scary skinny.
