Forbes have released their annual list of this year’s highest earning models. For the first time since 2002, Brazilian model Gisele Bündchen has not occupied the top spot. Thanks to lucrative contracts with La Perla, Estée Lauder, Adidas, Fendi and Alexander Wang, Kendall Jenner has claimed the title, banking a cool USD $22 million this year. Despite retiring from the runway in 2015, Gisele continues to out-earn her peers through endorsements in her native Brazil and advertising deals with Carolina Herrera. Unsurprisingly, Insta-icons Bella and Gigi Hadid both scored rankings within the top ten. Take a look through the gallery to see who else made the cut this year.
