The 22-year-old has just claimed the top spot on Forbes' annual list – raking in US$22 million this past year, thanks to her numerous endorsement deals with Estee Lauder, La Perla, Adidas, and her clothing line with sister Kylie Jenner.

Meanwhile, former Sports Illustrated covergirl and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen made her debut on the list, taking in US$13.5 million. Other notable names on Forbes' list of highest-paid models include Gigi Hadid (no. 5), Karlie Kloss (no. 7), Liu Wen (no. 8), and Bella Hadid (no. 9).
