Growing up a member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, it was pretty much inevitable that Kendall Jenner would be a big deal. And now, at the age of 23, she’s officially earning more money than any other model in the world.
The daughter of Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner has been crowned the highest-paid model of 2018, according to Forbes. The publication revealed that the brunette beauty made a whopping $22.5 million in the 12 months to June.
Her impressive earnings come from her contracts with big-name brands like Estée Lauder, Adidas and Calvin Klein, Forbes reports.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star comfortably beat Karlie Kloss for the top spot. The newly wed supermodel came in second, with income of $13 million — her highest annual earnings thanks to partnerships with Swarovski, Adidas and Away.
Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley tied for third place, with both models earning $11.5 million.
Teigen’s revenue was a result of her decision to branch out: She created a line of cookware, released a second cookbook and hosted Lip Sync Battle.
Meanwhile, Huntington-Whiteley made her money from the launch of her own lingerie, makeup and fragrance lines in partnership with British department store Marks & Spencer.
Rounding out the top five was Cara Delevingne, who took home $10 million from deals with Douglas Cosmetics, Rimmel, Tag Heuer and Dior Beauty. She tied with Gisele Bündchen, who did ad campaigns for Stuart Weitzman and Brazilian brands Vivara and Arezzo, and published a book, Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life.
