22-Year-Old Kendall Jenner Makes History, Emerges World’s Highest-Paid Model In 2017 | See Top 10 List
For the first time in 15 years, Kendall Jenner has claimed the number one spot of Forbes’ World’s Highest-Paid Model from Gisele Bundchen who had been holding the record since year 2012.
The 22-year-old supermodel raked in a whooping sum of $22 million over the past 12 months. She made more money this year from her over 85 million followers Instagram page, which enables her to reach wide coverage through advertisements.
The catwalk queen also copped some cool cash from deals with Estée Lauder, La Perla and Adidas, her family’s reality TV show, ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, her Kendall + Kylie clothing line with her sister, Kylie Jenner, and numerous social media endorsements juice her modeling money.
Kendall knocks down Gisele massively, but she managed to maintain the second spot with a substantial $17.5 million that was way below $30.5 million that made her the number one in 2016.
37-year-old Gisele got her money from Carolina Herrera fragrance, Arezzo shoes and Vivara jewelry in her native Brazil. She was unable to pull more weight due to less campaigns she featured in.
The top three was completed with John Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen who’s featuring on the list for the first time after snagging $13.5 million over the past 12 months.
The newcomer, former Sports Illustrated cover girl and foodie mints millions from deals beyond fashion, including adverts with beverage brands such as Vita Coco and Smirnoff.
