Kendall Jenner is every where we look these days.

She is every marquee designer's pick.

She walks the runway at every major fashion week.

And, according to Forbes, she has now become the world's highest paid model, toppling supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Earlier this year, the 22-year-old (then 21) model had also picked up the Daily Front Row's 'Fashion Icon of the Decade' award!

Considering she was only 11 years old when the decade in question began, the decision surprised many.

But a spokesperson for Daily Front Row defended the decision to Huffington Post saying 'We're living in a digital decade and Kendall is the ultimate style influencer. [The] digital generation more than ever turns to social media to learn what's next and Kendall has 83 million devoted Instagram followers, many of whom emulate her style.

'Kendall has also captured the hearts of the leading fashion magazines, photographers, and brands.

'A fashion icon is someone who influences the look of a generation and Kendall has been making a huge impact on their style.

'It's noteworthy that fashion bible Vogue has called her the breakout model of her generation and put her on the cover of their September issue in 2016.'
