For 15 years, supermodel Gisele Bundchen held the title of the world's highest-paid model.

Despite having ended her spectacular runway career that spanned 20 long years in her home country at the Sao Paolo Fashion Week, in 2016 Gisele continued to regain the top spot with $30.5 million. 

However this year, Kendall Jenner has taken the crown from Budchen, who had been the world's highest-paid model since 2002.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star made an incredible $22 million this year, while Gisele earned an equally impressive $17.5 million, reported E! Online.

In 2015, Kendall made her debut on the list with a $4 million possession. Last year, she climbed up to the fourth place with an earning of $10 million. 

Rounding out the top three is Chrissy Teigen (No 3 with $13.5 million), who joins the list for the first time.

Karlie Kloss, who made her comeback on the Victoria's Secret ramp this year also featured on the list. 

Sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid, plus-size model Ashley Graham and Chinese fashion model Liu Wen also made it to the Top 10 list.

According to Forbes, the 10 highest-paid models list is determined by calculating pre-tax earnings brought in between June 1, 2016 and June 1, 2017 and includes income from brand contracts including cosmetics, fragrance, footwear and apparel.
