Kendall Jenner becomes the world's highest-paid model

After 15 Years, Gisele Bundchen Is No Longer the World's Highest-Paid Model

After 15 Years, Gisele Bundchen Is No Longer the World's 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. The Brazilian had been the highest paid supermodel in the business since 2002; at the peak of her career she made some $45 million in a single year, more than the combined earnings of the remaining nine of the top ten in the list. Tom Brady's wife has been replaced by the reality TV star after the latter raked in $22 million over the past 12 months.

But that is not all, the star has also released a string of collections under her joint fashion line named Kendall + Kylie, which she set up with her younger sister Kylie Jenner, 20.

So how did Kendall make ₹142 crore in a year?

Between her magazine deals, Instagram collaborations, partnerships with brands such as La Perla, Estée Lauder and Adidas, as well as Keeping Up With The Kardashians and her clothing range, Kendall has taken the world by storm this year, and it's showing.

It is unlikely that bündchen upset over losing the leading position in the ranking, because its accounts for the year increased not less than 17.5 million dollars. And even though she didn't walk at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, she still managed to double her income from 2016's $10 million. Her earnings from various fashion and food deals including Smirnoff have earned her a tidy $13.5 million.

Joining the list for the first time, and being ranked third is Chrissy Teigen who earned $13.5 million. Estimated figures are derived from interviews with the managers, agents and the executives of the brands the models worked for.
