03. Christie Brinkley ($80 million)
At 58 Brinkley is the oldest model on this list, but her glamour days are hardly behind her. She still does modelling endorsement for products aimed at older women, but the former wife of Billy Joel hardly needs the money. Much of her initial wealth stems from her career, which includes three consecutive Sports Illustrated cover appearances and the longest-ever modelling contract in the industry (20 years). She then invested wisely in real estate, which today makes up for the bulk of her fortune.
