Forbes Reveals The Top 10 Highest-Paid Models In 2018

After 15 years hogging the top spot on Forbes’ annual list, Gisele Bündchen’s reign finally ended last year when Kendall Jenner overthrew the leggy Brazilian supermodel. It appears Jenner isn’t letting go of the crown anytime soon. The 23-year-old is the highest-paid model in the world for a second year running.

When it comes to the Kardashian household though, Kendall isn’t anywhere near the top earner. In fact, only brother Rob earns less. Who’s the richest? It’s the baby of the family. Kylie Jenner is reportedly worth $900 million according to Forbes, thanks to her cosmetics business. This year alone, Kylie pocketed an estimated $166.5 million pretax in the same time Kendall earned $22.5 million.

Back to Forbes’ annual ranking of supermodels. 2018 marked Kendall’s best year yet in earnings thanks to contracts with Estee Lauder, Adidas and Calvin Klein, among others.

Sitting in the runner-up slot is Karlie Kloss who earned $13 million. She’s parlayed her giant social media presence into a revenue stream, along with lucrative deals with Swarovski, Adidas, Estee Lauder and more.

Former top dog Giselle drops even further on the list this year. She lands in at No. 5 with $10 million.

Dropping off the list this year were Adriana Lima, Ashley Graham and Liu Wen, who all earned just below the $8 million cutoff.
