Miranda Kerr might not be an actress, but she rakes in more money and endorsement deals than most. Coupled with an A-list husband — actor Orlando Bloom, 36 — the 29-year-old Victoria’s Secret model and mother of one makes Celebuzz’s Hollywood Power Index at number 30.

Based on her earnings from May 2011 to May 2012, Kerr was ranked as one of the world’s highest-paid models by Forbes magazine.

With a net worth of $11.4 million, the model’s bank account only continues to grow thanks to new collaborations and endorsement deals. In 2012 alone, Kerr penned a deal with Reebok to appear in its EasyTone campaign, was snagged by Japanese fashion company Samantha Thavasa to promote its line of handbags and launched KORA, her own line of organic skincare, body & haircare products.

Taking over from her predecessor Kate Moss, Kerr was recently announced as the new face of MANGO, a clothing line that’s known for choosing famous faces like Scarlett Johansson, Penélope Cruz and Milla Jovovich for its advertising campaigns.

Rounding out a stellar year, the model was awarded the coveted title of 2012’s ‘Sexiest Woman of the Year’ by Esquire UK and posed nearly nude for the December photo shoot.

“We always have so much fun when we shoot,” she said in the magazine interview. “My temperament’s flirtatious, so it’s second nature to me.

When it comes to supermodels, the Australian beauty is a fan-favorite as well. A recent British survey revealed Kerr as the celeb who UK women would most like to see a fashion line from. According to the nearly 2,000 women polled by popular site MyVoucherCodes, the supermodel landed in first place, beating out the likes of Lady Gaga, Kate Middleton, Katy Perry and Jennifer Aniston.
