The 10 Hottest Supermodels in the world. Can you try and guess who they are? 

The term supermodel refers to a highly-paid fashion model who usually has a worldwide reputation and often a background in haute couture and commercial modeling. The term was elevated to prominence in the popular culture of the 1990s. Supermodels usually work for top fashion designers and labels. They have multi-million dollar contracts, endorsements and campaigns. They have branded themselves as household names and worldwide recognition is associated with their modeling careers.

Gisele Bundchen was the top-earning model last year, raking in an impressive $25 million. She's conquered everything from Versace to Rampage, while inhabiting one of the most coveted bodies around. Lucky girl. And did we mention she has a baby with hubby Tom Brady? Model Gisele Bundchen walks the runway at The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at the 69th Regiment Armory November 9, 2005 in New York City.

Heidi Klum

Thanks in part to her hosting gigs at Project Runway and Germany's Next Top ModelHeidi Klum earned $16 million last year -- not bad for a recession. She can also chalk up her big earnings to deals with brands like Volkswagen and Diet Coke. Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2008..Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Miami Beach, Florida..November 15, 2008.

Kate Moss career has already spanned two decades, and she's only 35 -- an impressive feat for a youth-obsessed industry. She earned $8.5 million last year, solidifying her spot as one of the most influential fashionistas in the world, on or off the red carpet.

Adriana Lima

Long live the Victoria's Secret bombshells. Brazilian hottie Adriana Lima raked in $8 million, thanks mostly to VS, but her Maybelline contract didn't hurt. Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2008..Fontainebleau Miami Beach, Miami Beach, Florida..November 15, 2008.

Alessandra Ambrosio

Brazilian mom of one Alessandra Ambrosio was the first spokesperson for Victoria's Secret's PINK line, and she's repped more brands than we can count (Revlon, Christian Dior, Armani...the list goes on). As a result, she earned a whopping $6 million last year. Model Alessandra Ambrosio doing a Victoria's Secret lingerie photoshoot.

Doutzen Kroes is the third Victoria's Secret model on our list, but she's far from the last. This Dutch stunner makes most of her money from lingerie ads, but brands like DeBeers, Seven for All Mankind and Calvin Klein have boosted her salary to $6 million. Model Doutzen Kroes walks the runway at the Victoria's Secret fashion show at The Armory on November 19, 2009 in New York City.

Natalia Vodianova has never modeled for Victoria's Secret, but she's posed for just about everyone else -- including Calvin Klein, Louis Vuitton, David Yurman and Chanel. Her efforts scored her $5.5 million last year. Model Natalia Vodianova walks down the runway during the Ermanno Scervino show as part of Milan Womenswear Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 on September 25, 2009 in Milan, Italy.

At 35, Carolyn Murphy is older than a lot of the models on our list, but her lucrative contract with Estee Lauder keeps her earning dollars. And last year, it was $3 million of them, to be exact. She's also signed deals with Banana Republic and Lord & Taylor. Model Carolyn Murphy attends the 2005 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue press conference to announce the covergirl on February 15, 2005 in New York City.
