These Were The Highest Paid Models Of 2018

Prepare to feel poor

At just 23-years-old, Kendall Jenner is the most sought-after face in the fashion world for another year running. Last year, the reality TV star was named the highest paid model in the world, stealing the top spot from former Victoria’s Secret Angel Gisele Bundchen, and this morning Forbes confirmed that she’s held onto her title for 2018. 

According to Forbes‘s annual list, Jenner raked in $22.5 million USD ( approx. $31.3 million AUD) from June 2017 to 2018, edging out Karlie Kloss, who took the runner-up spot with $13 million USD (approx. $18 million AUD).

Forbes reports that Jenner’s income can be traced to her lucrative campaigns with Estee Lauder, Adidas, and Calvin Klein, however, that she can thank her Instagram and her social media presence for most of those millions. 

But if you think that makes Kenny the highest paid in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, you’d be wrong. Younger sister Kylie made an estimated $166.5 million USD in the same time frame thanks to Kylie Cosmetics.

As far as the rest of the list goes, Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are tied in third place, both taking home $11.5 million this year with Gisele Bundchen and Cara Delevingne sitting just behind at $10 million. 

Surprisingly, the Hadid sisters were in 7th and 8th spot with Gigi making $9.5 million and her younger sister, Bella, making $8.5 million.
