Kendall Jenner Is Forbes’ Highest-Paid Model of 2018

Kendall Jenner has been named the highest-paid model of 2018, according to Forbes.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star raked in $22.5 million from June 2017 to June 2018, beating out model Karlie Kloss, who took home $13 million to earn the No. 2 spot, thanks in part to her deal as the face of Swarovski.

Following Kloss (who married Joshua Kushner in October) were Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who tied for third at $11.5 million.

At $10 million, Gisele Bundchen and Cara Delevingne tied for fifth place. Sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid followed with $9.5 and $8.5 million, respectively.

They might all be in the wrong business, however, as Forbes pointed out that Jenner’s younger sister Kylie Jenner took in a whopping $166.5 million in the same time from her makeup empire Kylie Cosmetics, which launched in 2015. The business helped her nab the title of youngest self-made billionaire earlier this year.

Models make a good portion of their income from fashion partnerships and sponsorships. Jenner had deals with Estée Lauder, Adidas and Calvin Klein; Teigen released her second cookbook Cravings: Hungry for More in September and debuted a kitchen line with Target. Meanwhile, Delevingne starred in campaigns for athletic company Puma (who also counts Rihanna and Kylie Jenner as ambassadors).

Actresses also frequently score deals with fashion brands; Emma Stone stars in campaigns for Louis Vuitton, Penelope Cruz released a sustainable jewelry line with Swarovski in July, Margot Robbie became a Chanel ambassador in March and Zendaya will design a spring 2019 collection for Tommy Hilfiger as a brand ambassador.

Kim Kardashian congratulated Kendall Jenner on her ranking, tweeting, “Damn sis!!!!!!!! Get it giiiiirrrrrrrlllllllll.”
