Somehow, I don’t think things are so rosy in the Gisele Bundchen–Tom Brady household. For the second year in a row, Kendall Jenner tops the lists of money-making models. Someone better not tell Naomi Campbell, or her laser-eyed wrath will be all over the Kardashian Koven! For someone who is oh-so-selective with the jobs (minus this one) Kris Jenner forces upon her, she sure is making a ton of cash from it. Kendall tops the list with $22.5 million made. Gisele tumbled down to number 5!
Forbes reminds us that, just as last year, Gisele must have some strings over at the magazine because it glosses by how much Kendall made and then immediately follows up in the next sentence with how she’s a real poor because her sister Kylie Jenner hauled in $166.5 million with her cosmetics line. That’s less than the combined $133 million the whole top 10 list of highest-earning models made last year! Karlie Kloss came in second with $13 million followed by Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whitely tied for third at $11.5 million. Gisele shared her perch at fifth with Cara Delevingne, both earning $10 million.
Karlie Kloss may be the only one in the top 5 who made her money from actually modeling.
Another one who doesn’t exactly need the paycheck, Gigi Hadid, came in seventh with $9.5 million. Her sister Bella Hadid and Joan Smalls tied for eighth with $8.5 million. Finally, Doutzen Kroes closed the top 10 with $8 million.
What about Naomi?! What about Tyra Banks?! Hell, what about Janice Dickinson?! Whatever editorial intern is compiling this list for Forbes needs to dive deep when they’re coming up with this for next year because I’m pretty sure Bravo pays Naomi far more than any of these newbies are making just to come and talk shit on Watch What Happens Live a couple times each year. Plus, Tyra has definitely made it where she pockets $1 anytime someone says “smize.”
