Kendall Jenner beats out Gisele as highest paid model

After Gisele Bundchen ruled the industry for 15 long years, Kendall Jenner has been crowned as the highest paid model in the world this year, according to Forbes' annual list.

Kendall Jenner's earnings more than doubled from 2016's $10 million total, making her the biggest dollar and percent gainer on the ranking.

Kendall dethroned Gisele Bundchen, who has been the highest-paid model in the world since 2002. The 22-year-old made it to number five with $9.5 million earned in 2017 and the 21-year-old came in at number nine with $9 million. The second-to-youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family pulled in $22 million in the 12 months between June 2016 and June 2017.

This is thanks to lucrative deals with brands including Estée Lauder, La Perla and Adidas, which are forking out to reach Jenner's 85 million Instagram followers. The model made €14.6 million in the past year. This year, the 37-year-old wife of Tom Brady posed for Carolina Herrera fragrance, Arezzo shoes and Brazilian company Vivara jewelry.
