Forbes has just released its annual ranking of the top ten highest paid models for 2018. Earning a cumulative $113 million between June 1, 2017, and June 1, 2018, these supermodels have all scored big when it comes to booking major campaigns this year, with many having branched out into other industries like business or tech. Last year marked the first time that fashion legend Gisele Bündchen was usurped from her first place position by Kendall Jenner, a spot that the young Kardashian-clan member has maintained once again. Notably, this year’s list shows a drive upwards for the minimum cutoff, with an increase of $2.5 million for the 10th place earner. A reflection of the most current fashion industry muses (not to mention numerous V cover stars), check out the list below.
