For the first time since 2002, Gisele Bündchen is no longer the world’s highest-paid model. Her role has been taken over by a model nearly half her age: the 22-year-old Kendall Jenner. With an astonishing income of $22 million over the past year she is now the biggest moneymaker in the modelling world. But how does she do it? The Kardashians-Jenners don’t keep it a secret that they’re making the big bucks on Instagram. Kendall didn’t walk the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show this year but her modelling contracts with La Perla, Estee Lauder and Adidas also cover sponsored Instagram posts. With 84,8 (!!) million followers, it’s no surprise Kendall is making some money here.

Nevertheless, Gisele wasn’t far behind with $17.5 million income last year after doing fewer campaigns as she is focusing on her family and two kids. There were also a few newcomers on the list: Chrissy Teigen ($13.5 million), Gigi ($9.5 million), Bella Hadid ($6 million) and Ashley Graham ($5.5 million). Unfortunately, we only see one woman of colour on the list: Liu Wen ($6.5 million). Here’s the full Forbes’ world’s highest-paid models list:

1. Kendall Jenner – $22 million

2. Gisele Bundchen – $17.5 million

3. Chrissy Teigen – $13.5 million

4. Adriana Lima – $10.5 million
