Kendall Jenner isn’t going anywhere – at least not yet.

The model has been named the highest-earning model in the world by Forbes for the second year in a row, after knocking Gisele Bundchen off her perch last year.

According to Forbes, the 23-year-old earned US $22.5 million between June 2017 and June 2018 (before tax), just a slight increase from $22 million the year before.

Kendall has signed contracts with Victoria’s Secret, Chanel, Estee Lauder and Calvin Klein, to name a few. Her number one spot proves the power of social media; with 100 million Instagram followers, she can likely command a million per partner post.
