The Net Worth of Kyra Santoro
How rich is Kyra Santoro? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $1 million, earned largely through a successful career as a model. She’s been modellings since she was 18 years old, and has travelled around the world thanks to her work. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Modelling Beginnings
Very little is known about Kyra’s life before her rise to fame online as a model, as she hasn’t shared a lot of details regarding her family, childhood, and education. It is known that she grew up alongside two brothers, and loved dancing at a young age – during high school, she was a part of her school’s dance team.
She had always been interested in modelling from a young age, and at the age of 18, decided to try it out after hearing that the agency Wilhelmina Models was doing open calls, looking for new models. Wilhelmina is a modelling and talent agency based in New York City, founded in 1967. The company is known for providing full-service representation to models, also for athletes, musicians, artists, and other entertainers. They are the only publicly traded modelling and talent agency, becoming public in 2009 after its acquisition by New Century Equity Holdings Corp.
After working with Wilhemina for several years, Santoro then moved her representation to MP Management, which is a global network of modelling and talent agencies under CEO Matteo Puglisi. They have seven agencies across Europe and America, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Milan, Paris, Atlanta, Miami and Stockholm. Some of the more popular clients include Camille Kostek, Marjan Jonkman, and Bar Refaeli. Her fame started to increase significantly as she began appearing in popular magazines.
One of her biggest achievements early in her career was being featured in the “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue, a sports magazine that began in 1954, and has over three million subscribers. It was the first magazine with a circulation over one million to win the National Magazine Award for General Excellence twice. It is best known for its annual swimsuit issue, which began publishing in 1964. She then posed for and was featured in the international men’s magazine “Maxim”, which is known for its photography of popular personalities. It often does photo shoots of models, singers, and actresses whose careers are currently at their peak. They have over nine million readers in circulation, and has 16 editions published worldwide; she worked with the Mexico branch of “Maxim”.
Recent Projects, Acting, and Music
Another magazine Kyra worked for is “Seventeen”. It is an American magazine which has been running since 1944, and which caters to 13 to 19 year-old females, with the goal of inspiring girls to become model citizens. In recent years, the publication has focused more on fashion and romance, while promoting self-confidence in women.
Her popularity has even led her to acting work – one of her first projects was “#ThisIsCollege”, in which she appeared alongside Talia Rothenberg, Chelsea Taylor, and Olivia Pickren. The following year, she was cast in the television series “The Orville”, a science fiction series created by Seth MacFarlane and inspired by shows such as “Star Trek” and “The Twilight Zone”. The show follows the story of the crew of the space exploratory vehicle Orville, as they undertake various missions, and has been running for three seasons. One of her latest projects is the short film “Organics” which was created by Dillon Dowdell.
Aside from acting, Kyra has been working on her music career, releasing the song “Forever Down” which is available on various digital platforms. She is also working on a music video for the single.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, not much is known in terms of Santoro’s romantic relationships. She has not been open about this aspect of her life, though several sources have linked her romantically to a man she’s featured on her Instagram account several times. Details about him are scarce however.

She loves travelling and going to the beach, often wearing clothes that accentuate her figure. She also loves dogs and has a pet dog of her own. She also enjoys music, and wants to do more musical projects if given the opportunity. Similar to numerous professional models, she is highly active online through accounts on social media. She has an account on Instagram on which she has over 850,000 followers, and uses the website to post personal photos and those taken from recent photo shoots she’s done.
The account gives a bit of insight into her personality and life outside of work, though she has been travelling a lot due to her work. That is the only account she maintains, and she mentions that she is not an influencer, only doing modelling based on the assignments given by her agency. She also promotes her recent music releases, which are available on websites such as Spotify.
