The Evening Standard recently rounded up the top paid fashion and beauty influencers of 2018, and holy shit THEY ARE MAKING SO MUCH MONEY.
While Celebrity category leaders like Kylie Jenner, Selena Gomez, Christiano Ronaldo, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce are pulling in north of $700,000 per sponsored post — don’t calculate the hourly on that, it’ll make you sad — those in the Fashion and Beauty spaces aren’t exactly slumming it either.
Headlined by Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski — who earn $27,000 and $26,500 per post, respectively — the list of top fashion influencers also includes bloggers Chiara Ferragni, Camila Coelho, Mariano Di Vaio, and Aimee Song, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, singer Frederico Lucia, and multi-hyphenate Alexa Chung, who all earn north of $4,500 per post (or as the Standard calls it, “an eye-watering amount”).
Perhaps the most bizarre inclusion on the list, however, is Italian billionaire Gianluca Vacchi, who has 11.5 million followers and commands over $16,500 per post, which means that he’s a billionaire making money on the trappings of being a billionaire, so that’s cool.
Meanwhile, the Beauty category, led by Hedda Kattan, can net influencers anywhere between $4,200 and $33,000 per post.
