Out with the old and in with the new? According to new reports, Gisele Bundchen is no longer the highest paid supermodel out there. This year, it was Kendall Jenner who topped Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid models.
The 37-year-old Gisele had in fact not been dethroned from her number one spot since 2002!
Kendall’s earnings in 2017 total a whopping of $22 million, and they have actually doubled in the last year as a result of her multi-million dollar gig with La Perla as well as because of deals with Topshop, Adidas, PacSun and more!
Bundchen placed second, with $17.5 million, while the third position was taken by none other than Chrissy Teigen with $13.5 million.
Also, well-known model sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid placed at number 4 and number 9 respectively, followed by Ashley Graham at number 10.
But despite the fact that she pocketed a lot of money because of her deal with La Perla, we have learned that the contract might have been what prevented the older Jenner sister from walking the runway in this week’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
What do you think about Kendall topping the list of the highest paid models in 2017? Do you believe she deserves it?
