The ELLE Rich List 2014

Whose stock is rising – and whose has fallen

MOST POPULAR

The annual Sunday Times Rich List was published yesterday, meaning that today in the ELLE offices we’re all bemoaning the fact that we’re not worth, like David and Victoria Beckham, a cool £210m.

Oligarchs and aristocrats aside, the list featured plenty of our favourite faces: from fashion to film, it’s safe to say that some ELLE cover stars are doing pretty well for themselves. See if you can spot them among our highlights…

No 1

Victoria and David Beckham, £210m

The Beckhams can do no wrong financially. Wise investments have seen Brand Beckham grow £10m in the past 12 months. Proof that Becks sells.

No 2

Tamara Mellon, £180m

The co-founder of Jimmy Choo is certainly well-heeled, what with almost £200m in the bank. We’d definitely like to be in her shoes.

No 3

Georgina Chapman, £115m (with Harvey Weinstein)

Harvey Weinstein’s wife, co-founder of Marchesa, Georgina’s red-carpet showstoppers have a huge A-list fan base, deservedly so, and she’s reaping the rewards.

No 4

Robert Pattinson, £60m

He may be trying to shake off his teen heartthrob image and move into more serious roles, but the Twilight series certainly hasn’t done R-Patz’s bank balance any harm.

No 5

Adele, £45m

The singer may have been focusing on motherhood, but Adele has still seen her bank balance grow by £15m in the past year. Expect to see that double when her rumoured (and much-anticipated) new album, 25, drops.

No 6

Calvin Harris, £30m

Smashing his way onto the list is Rita Ora’s beau, DJ and general all-round hitmaker Calvin Harris. Now charging £200,000 a night for DJ gigs and owner of a $7m house in the Hollywood Hills, he’s come a long way from stacking shelves in the Scottish Borders.

No 7

Emma Watson, £30m

The Harry Potter alumini’s stock continues to rise. Star turns in blockbusters like Noah, as well as a solid red-carpet fashion presence, have cemented Watson as an up-and-coming Hollywood power player.

No 8

Keira Knightley, £29m

Knightley holds steady around the £30m mark, with her seven-year relationship with Chanel still going strong, along with more mature film roles in the pipeline. Karl on speed dial and millions in the bank? Yes please.

No 9

Cheryl Cole, £16m

After a quiet year, Cheryl is preparing for a big comeback, signing a £1.5m deal to return to The X Factor as a judge. Simon obviously thought she was worth it.

No 10

Carey Mulligan, £13m

Actress Carey joins the Rich List for the first time with her husband, musician Marcus Mumford. Playing Daisy Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann’s epic, The Great Gatsby, obviously paid off.
