Kendall Jenner named Forbes highest paid model for 2017, topping Gisele Bundchen

Gisele, the last of the great supermodels, has held the top spot on the list for the last 15 years.

The win shouldn't come as much of a surprise for those who have been keeping up with Kendall's modeling career over the past several years, but it's still totally insane that the 22-year-old earned exactly her age in millions in one year alone, proving that she's a force to be reckoned with in the modeling industry. Let's not forget that Kenny also co-owns the Kendall + Kylie clothing line with younger sister Kylie Jenner AND has a whopping 85 million followers on Instagram, which allows her to charge advertisers big bucks for her to promote their products.

Say what you will about Kendall Jenner and the rest of the KarJenner family, but you have to admit those ladies know how to bring in a buck. The decrease came as a result of doing fewer campaigns in total.

A nice surprise was to find Chrissy Teigen included in the list for the first time.

It was only a matter of time before one of the new generation of Instagirl-era models would topple B√ľndchen, who fell into second place on the Forbes list, banking (just) $17.5 million this year. Whilst the industry may be working towards a hint of diversity when it comes to body type, the modeling world is far from representative when it comes to cultural diversity.

Earnings are based on income from cosmetics, fragrance and other contracts; estimates are sourced from interviews with numerous managers, agents, and brand executives.
