Beyoncé and Jay Z are two of the world's hardest working musicians in the business, and as a result of their efforts, the pair have nabbed the number one spot on the 2016 Forbes celebrity couple list.

The Carter's managed to rake in a whopping €97 million in the last 12 months, allowing them to claim the throne as the world's highest earning celebrity couple.

Queen Bey made a cool €49 million this year by playing 19 shows in the past 12 months, and releasing her successful new album, Lemonade

“I’ve never met anyone that works harder than me in my industry,” the songstress once told Forbes.

Jay Z has not released music in three years, but has been busy with a number of other ventures.

The award winning rapper makes millions on his Armand de Brignac champagne, D’Ussé cognac and entertainment company Roc Nation, along with his streaming service Tidal and his 40/40 nightclub in New York City.

Last year's top earning couple was the musical duo Taylor Swift, and ex-boyfriend, and hugely successful DJ, Calvin Harris. 

Had these two music moguls remained an item, they would have been listed as the highest earning celebrity couple in the world, ahead of Beyoncé and Jay Z.

Taylor Swift’s romantic endeavours may be dominating headlines lately, but it doesn’t mean the pop sensation has been anywhere near out of work as a brand new rich list has revealed Taylor is the highest earning celebrity in the world for 2016.

According to Forbes magazine, the Shake It Off singer shook her way right to the bank as she raked in $170 million in the last year and earned herself the top spot on the Forbes 2016 Celebrity 100 List.

Taylor’s massive pay check comes in part from her successful 1989 World Tour and advertising for big names like Diet Coke, Keds and Apple.

The star’s income for this year is the most she has ever made annually and is more than twice the $80 million she made last year.

2015’s winner was pro-boxer Floyd Mayweather who made $300 million, while the world’s highest earning performer was Katy Perry with a cool $135 million.

Between that hefty bank balance and the wonderful Tom Hiddleston is it any wonder everyone wants to be TayTay for a day?

OK, so she's nabbed a fair few high-profile – not to mention eyebrow-raising – magazine covers in the past.

But today, Kim Kardashian released a sneak-peak of another just-released publication… and it seems she's totes emosh about it.

Yup, not for Mrs West 'merely' another Vogue spread or Paper magazine 'break the internet' photo. Instead, the 36-year-old reality TV star and businesswoman has nabbed the cover of Forbes.

Taking to Twitter this afternoon, Kim gushed: "Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes!

"I never dreamed this would happen& know my Dad would be proud."

Her father, the late Robert Kardashian, was a high-profile attorney who famously defended OJ Simpson when the athlete stood trial on charges relating to the killing of his wife, Nicole Brown. Before Robert's death in 2003, he had amassed a fortune of some $30m over the course of his career.

The Forbes cover cites the success of her mobile app Kim Kardashin: Hollywood – which has so far made a cool $45m.

Overall, Kim's net worth stands at some $150m – more than twice that of her husband, Kanye West.

Forbes has just released its annual list of oh-so loaded celebrities, entrepreneurs and canny business-folk – and suffice to say that it's all rather eye-wateringly wealthy.

All the usual suspects are there too from the entertainment world: taking the top spot in the highest-paid actress category is Jen Lawrence, who raked in €45.5m (gulp) last year alone.

Indeed, the rest of the Top Ten is pretty familiar – Jennifer Aniston, Scarlett Johansson and Angelina Jolie are all present and correct, as are Julia Roberts and Kristen Stewart.

But lo and behold taking the No.4 spot is one Fan Bingbing: a stunning 33-year-old Chinese actress who has endorsement contracts with the likes of Louis Vuitton and Chopard; who graces the front of Vogue, and who dominates Vanity Fair's International Best Dressed lists. 

Best known to folk in this part of the world for her role in X-Men: Days Of Future Past, she boasts a decade-and-half long career in the film industry and is a mega-star in her native China.

She also earned €18.5m in 2014 – hence her sky-high position on the Forbes list.

Growing up in Yantai, a province on the northeast coast, she is a graduate of the Shanghai Xie Jin Film And Television Art College and the Shanghai Theatre Academy.

She is currently dating Chinese movie star (and all 'round hottie) Li Chen, a 36-year-old whom she met on the set of The Empress Of China, a 2014 TV drama set during the ancient Tang dynasty era.

Over the last number of years, Fan has become something of a regular sight at the Cannes Film Festival – often wowing gathered spectators and photographers with her breathtaking gowns.

Here, SHEmazing! takes a look at her most incredible, utterly fabulous red-carpet attire. Make sure to follow Ms Bingbing on Instagram too.

Forbes magazine has published it's list for the highest paid actors for 2015 so far, and it's not exactly what we expected. 

This list sees Robert Downey Jr. being named the highest paid actor for a third year in a row following his work on the Avengers: Age of Ultron which saw him take home a huge €80million. 

Jackie Chan came in second on the list after he grossed a very impressive €50million on Dragon Blade and Vin Diesel wasn't far behind with €47million as his earnings for Fast and Furious 7.

For the first time ever the list included international actors as two Bollywood actors feature in joint 7th place. 

Others who appear on the list include Adam Sandler, Bradley Cooper and Tom Cruise. Here's a full run down of the top 10:

1. Robert Downey Jr

2. Jackie Chan

3. Vin Diesel

4. Bradley Cooper

5. Adam Sandler

6. Tom Cruise

7. Amitabh Bachchan

7. Salman Khan

9. Akshay Kumar

10. Mark Wahlberg

The full list includes 33 actors and newcomers include Seth Rogan and 22 Jump Street actor Jonah Hill. 

The magazine has said they will publish the female equivalent  in a few weeks.

She’s celebrated as one of the world’s most beautiful people – not to mention the only woman, it is rumoured, who ever truly captured Leonardo Dicaprio’s heart.

Now happily married to the almost equally-as-gorgeous-as-she-is athlete Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen recently retired from the catwalk to focus on other endeavours.

Still, it seems that she still feels the pressure to look her very best at all times… she’s been spotted sneaking into a Paris plastic surgeon, supposedly for €10,000 worth of procedures on her breasts and eyes.

In a bid to go unnoticed, she wore a full Muslim burqa – but, significantly, failed to remove her open-toed sandals, something of a no-no for strict adherents of the Islam faith.

The Brazilian’s long-time chauffeur was also spotted dropping her off and collecting her from the swish International Clinique du Parc Monceau. AND she was accompanied by her 29-year-old sister, Rafaela – who also reportedly had surgical procedures carried out.

The duo were staying at the five-star Bristol Hotel.

A source told Page Six, which broke the story, that the former Victoria’s Secret Angel had been concerned that her breasts had sagged after having two children – and that a boob job and eye-lift were 35th-birthday and post-retirement presents to herself.

Page Six also says that the surgery was carried on July 15, with the two women afterwards recuperating at the exclusive Les Sources de Caudalie spa for five days, before then leaving Paris.

The catwalk queen made €43m last year alone, according to Forbes, and remains the world’s highest-paid model.

The move has caused controversy in France, however, not least because the country banned the wearing of burqas in public places back in 2010. 

Many strict Muslims see it as an important guarantor of modesty — and its abuse during Ramadan, which only concluded on July 17, may be offensive.

Indeed, a clerk at the Islam Fashion store in New York called the stunt “disrespectful," in conversation with Page Six.

"This is a religious garment. It’s not so you can hide when you’re going for a doctor’s appointment," they explained.

It’s official! Hollywood’s highest paid actress is none other than the lovely Sandra Bullock!

The Gravity actress was said by Forbes to have pulled in $51m last year, followed closely by Jennifer Lawrence with $34m and Jennifer Aniston with $31m.

The actress’ fortune is reported to have been due to the enormous success of the movie, Gravity, which made a massive $716m according to the international box office.

Sandra was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Gravity, while she had previously won the same title for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side in 2010. 

Completing the top five of Hollywood’s leading ladies is Gwyneth Paltrow, with Angelina Jolie and Cameron Diaz tying in fifth place.

Featuring in the top ten are Kristen Stewart, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman.

We all know that supermodels have outrageous wages, but Gisele Bündchen is definitely breaking the bank with what she earns daily.

According to Forbes, the model has earned a staggering $47 million (approx. €35million) over the past year, which works out at $128,000 (approx. €95,000) per day.

Apparently the last twelve months have been the best yet, in the Brazilian’s model twenty year career.

And it’s no wonder thanks to lucrative contracts with big fashion brands including H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera and Louis Vuitton. 

And if that wasn’t enough the 33-year-old also manages her own sandal collection, and recently joined forces with lingerie brand Hope to create a collection.

Gisele may be rich, but she sure earns it!

Anna Wintour has topped the fashion names on Forbes magazine’s ‘100 Most Powerful Women’ list.

The American Vogue editor-in-chief and artistic director of Condé Nast has been placed at number 39 on this year’s list – a whole two places higher than in 2013.

This is in part down to her fundraising work for the Anna Wintour Costume Centre and President Obama’s re-election campaign.

Anna, 64, beat designers Diane Von Furstenberg, who ranked in 68th place, Miuccia Prada in 75th and Tory Burch in 79th as well as supermodel Gisele Bundchen, who has an estimated wealth of $42million.

Also on the list in 43rd place is Spanx creator Sara Blakely who made history after turning her $5,000 life savings into the billion dollar brand, becoming the world’s first self-made female billionaire.

Sara has also joined the Giving Pledge, vowing to donate at least half of her earnings to charity.

Beyonce, Shakira, Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie and Sofia Vergara also made it onto the list, which was topped by the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.
