Kendall Jenner is maintaining her rank as the highest-paid model in the world, after earning $22.5 million from June 2017 to June 2018.
According to Forbes, Kendall out-earned models like the Hadid sisters and Gisele Bündchen, who held the top spot in 2016. She also made more than Karlie Kloss (by a lot), who came in second place with $13 million.
The 23-year-old made money off a select number of runway shows, as well as her ad contracts with Estee Lauder, Adidas, and Calvin Klein. She also rakes in dough from appearances on her family’s reality tv show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, but that is likely not factored into her modeling total, which is charted by cosmetics, fragrance, and other modeling deals.
The world’s 10 highest-paid models made a cumulative $113 million, including funds from social media sweetheart Chrissy Teigen and Joan Smalls. But none can compare to Jenner made even more money than last year, when she took home the title with $22 million in earnings.
Jenner might be the richest model in the world, but she’s hardly the richest member of her family. Her younger sister Kylie reportedly made $166.5 million off Kylie Cosmetics in 2018.
Kendall ruffled feathers in the modeling world earlier this year with some rude comments about being more selective than her peers. "Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do,” she said in an interview with Love magazine.
She later said her comments were taken out of context.
