An American Kendall Jenner is actually the highest paid model worldwide earning 22.5 million dollars within a year, basing on Forbes publication, that shows how the most market value models take advantage of recognition within social media networks.
Jenner, 23, leads the list of the 10 most productive models without a doubt, who built up $ 113 million dollars during the 12 months prior to June 2018, a little above the collective turn over of her predecessors (109.5 million dollars) of 2017.
The member of a TV show “The Kardashians” stood out in her modeling profession because of deals with Esteé Lauder, Adidas & Calvin Klein.
With 13 million dollars, Karlie Kloss, who had her finest year since going into the industry a decade back and is actually devoted to motivating young ladies.
Kode with Klossy is in 2nd spot.
Kloss combines projects for Swarovski as well as Adidas with its visibility on community networks, where it can be “seen as much as heard,” she told Forbes.
In the 3rd spot is Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, with 11.5 million dollars: the first has a line of kitchen items, as well as books, and the second has created her own brand of beauty products, Rose Inc, in both cases helped by their profile pages on the web.
“Your social media page is the magazine of your life, showing how you represent yourself,” said IMG Models president Ivan Bart, who works with most of the highest-paid models, and added that if they dedicate themselves to another business they first “must have a vision for it”.

Placing sisters Hadid and Gigi in 7th place (9.5 million dollars) and Bella in the 8th, a position that the latter shares with Joan Smalls having made more than 8.5 million dollars.
The Dutch Doutzen Kroes closes up the checklist, with 8 million dollars, while Adriana Lima, Ashley Graham, and Liu Wen stayed out of the ranking by a very short distance.
