Kendall Jenner is one of the most influential women on Instagram, she is best known for her TV show, „Keep Up With The Kardashians” and her modeling career has bloomed rapidly, turning her into the best paid model in 2018.
Kendall Jenner earned $22.5 million in 2018
She is just 23 years old and she is again named the highest paid model in the world by Forbes. Last year, Kendall managed to become the best paid model for the first time, dethroning Gisele Bündchen after leading the top for 14 years.
Between June 2017 – June 2018, Kendall Jenner earned $22.5 million and has overtaken the best models Karlie Kloss and Gisele Bündchen, and also her close friends Bella and Gigi Hadid.
Kendall didn’t make that much money from walking the catwalk of the fashion shows, but her contracts with big brands like Estée Lauder, Calvin Klein and Addidas made the difference.
With her income of $22.5 million, Kendall is so far away from Karlie Kloss, who took the second place and earned $13 million this year. She has partnerships with Adidas, Away Luggage and Swarovski.
After leading the top in 2016, Bündchen came on the fifth place, on par with Cara Delevingne. Both have earned around $10 million. The supermodel sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid are not missing the best paid models in 2018 top, they took the seventh and eighth spot.
Kendall Jenner is the highest paid model in 2018, but in the Kardashian/Jenner family, her little sister Kylie Jenner is the queen. A few months ago, before she turned 21, Forbes ranked her as youngest self-made billionaire ever. She is bringing in an estimated $166.5 million in a year and most of her fortune is built from selling her makeup products.
The best 10 paid models in the world earned $113 millions between June 2017 – June 2018 and showed a slight increase compared to the previous year, when the cumulative amount was $109.5 million.
