Second-year running.

Kendall Jenner has been named Forbes’ highest paid model for the second-year running.

Earning a huge $22.5 million USD, Jenner’s success has been attributed to various contracts with adidas, Estée Lauder, Calvin Klein and more. In 2017, she overtook Gisele Bundchen, who had held the top spot since 2002.

Gisele has since moved down to number five, while Karlie Kloss takes out spot two. Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whitely are tied at number three.

While Jenner might be the highest paid model, she still trails behind her sisters. Kylie pocketed an estimated $166.6 million in 2018 (thanks to Kylie Cosmetics), while Kim’s KKW Beauty reportedly made her $100 million in the past year.
