Kate Moss has topped the list of Britain's richest models.

The 40-year-old icon, who shot to fame when she was signed by Storm Model Management aged just 14, has been crowned the UK's wealthiest model with an estimated fortune of £55 million, according to a new list published in The Times newspaper.

She is followed by British-based beauty Claudia Schiffer, 43, who divides her time between London and Suffolk with her husband Matthew Vaughn and their three children.

The stunner, who originally wanted to be a lawyer, is said to have made a whopping £50 million throughout her 20-year career.

They are followed by Naomi Campbell, who boasts a £20 million fortune and has most recently been seen on 'The Face' where she mentors young catwalk talent.

Alek Wek, 37, comes in fourth place with £15 million, while Erin O'Connor, 36, follows with £12 million.

Meanwhile, Selfridges owners Galen and George Weston and their family, who boast a huge £7.3 billion fortune, are said to be the richest business people in fashion.

A-list couple David and Victoria Beckham surprisingly only made the 26th place with an estimated £210 million in the bank.

Retired soccer star David is believed to have helped build their fortune thanks to his hefty salary and endorsement deals, although Victoria's design company is expected to be worth more than £200 million by 2019.
