Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss and Gigi Hadid Rise in Forbes' 2016 List of Highest-Paid Models

Posted on September 20, 2016

Forbes has released its list of the world's highest-paid models. It is not a shock to see Gisele Bundchen has topped the list once again. She starred a recent Chanel campaign. Forbes calls Gisele "the woman to catch." She made $30.5 million last year.

Forbes reports that Gisele is followed by Adriana Lima who made $20 million. Kendall Jenner made the biggest climb over the past year. Forbes says her earnings soared by 150%. She earned $10 million in 2016 thanks in part to her name recognition and her massive 65.8 million followers on Instagram.

Karlie Kloss tied in third with Kendall. Karlie's recent campaigns include Carolina Herrera, Adidas, Swarovski, Express and Versace. Forbes says Karlie modeled for 18 different brands during the earning period for the 2016 list.

Karlie was followed by Gigi Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. They tied in 5th place. The models each made $9 million during the earning period calculated by Forbes. Take a look:
