For the first time since 2002, Gisele Bundchen is not the world’s highest-earning model. Kendall Jenner, 22, steals the top spot with a whopping $22 million year.
Together, the world’s 10 highest-paid models banked a cumulative $109.5 million between June 1, 2016, and June 1, 2017, before taxes and fees. Earnings are based on income from cosmetics, fragrance and other contracts; estimates are sourced from interviews with numerous managers, agents and brand executives.
