Kendall Is One Of Forbes' Highest-Paid Models

by May Sofi

Wondering whether being one of the most coveted supermodels of the moment pays off? The answer is a big fat yes. Kendall Jenner landed on the Forbes highest-paid models list in 2015 for the very first time, meaning the 19-year-old has officially made it to the big leagues.

Jenner has had quite the whirlwind year, snagging major fashion campaigns for high-profile brands like Fendi, Calvin Klein, and Balmain and strutting down the catwalk for countless designers like Michael Kors, Chanel, and Diane von Fürstenberg. It's safe to say she's on a successful streak.

The end of that streak is nowhere near either, as Jenner continues to dominate the fashion world as one of the most in-demand models of today's day and age. It's no wonder, then, that Jenner has nabbed the 16th spot on Forbes' highly esteemed list, raking in an impressive $4 million this year.

You may be surprised that Jenner didn't rank first (at least I was), but the #1 spot actually belongs to Gisele Bündchen who made a whopping $44 million in 2015 — wow. This makes perfect sense, though, as Bündchen has been in the modeling game for a whole lot longer than Jenner has.

Let's take a look at some of the other famous faces that made the list this year.
