 Ok, we gave you the nitty gritty salaries of Condé Nast and Hearst, but what about those major fashion trade companies like J.C. Penney, Ralph Lauren, Coach, and Victoria's Secret?

WWD pulled in the stats on the top earning fashion executives at the largest publicly traded companies — from Wal-Mart to Abercrombie and Fitch — and 67 logged in at over $5 million in 2011. 

Despite the fashion industry being predominantly female dominant, only six women made over $5 million. Ralph Lauren's executive vice president, Jackwyn Nemerov, topped the list with a total pay of $12,091,129, while Target's executive vice president/president of merchandising, Kathryn Tesija, ranked in at the bottom with $6,034,418 in pay. 

As for the top earning male — J.C. Penney CEO, Ron Johnson made a whopping $53.3 million in the past year which is close to $40 million more than the highest paid female. Yikes! 

True, these numbers aren't the least bit small — six figures? yes, please! — but it's surprising to see that no women even made it into the top 10.
