Another new name on the top-earners list is current "it girl" Lara Stone. A longtime high-fashion favorite, Stone debuts on the list with earnings of $4.4 million after striking deals with venerable houses like Versace, Prada and a highly coveted exclusive contract with Calvin Klein.
Swanepoel and Stone replaced Australian model Miranda Kerr and Dutch model Doutzen Kroes, who both took time off to have children. Their lucrative contracts will continue once they're back on the runways, so expect to see these two fighting for a place on the Top Models list in 2012.
