Kendall Jenner has taken over the world of modeling and continues to dominate the industry! The older of the "Jenner girls" broke away from the pack to create her own life and career as a high fashion model.
The modeling industry is only getting more and more competitive. She even surpassed now-retired Gisele Bundchen, supermodel extraordinaire and wife of Tom Brady, as the highest-paid catwalk model in the industry.
While seasoned models such as Adriana Lima, Chrissy Teigen, and Gisele Bundchen still find themselves earning millions, it's the business newbies that are taking over. From Kaia Gerber, the Hadid sisters, all the way to Kendall Jenner herself, the new wave of supermodels is here to stay.
But in 2021, Kendall Jenner remains the highest-paid model, earning herself a whopping $40 million annually, which is only expected to go up after the release of her 818 tequila brand. The 24-year-old began at age 14 with a gig for Rocker Baes. Two years later she was on the cover of Teen Vogue and cat-walking for Donna Karan, Vera Wang, and Victoria's Secret.
Many magazine covers later, the Proactiv spokesperson represents Chanel, Fendi, Balmain, La Perla, and Marc Jacobs, plus has lucrative contracts with Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, Estee Lauder, Pepsi, and Calvin Klein, which certainly puts her at the top of the leaderboard earning a whopping $40 million annually.
