The catwalk queen and reality star, 22, topped the annual Forbes list for the first time with earnings of $22 million over the past 12 months.
Kendall’s earnings more than doubled from 2016’s $10 million total, making her the biggest dollar and percent gainer on the ranking.
Gisele, 37, came in second place, having earned $17.5 million, marking the first year she has not headed up the line-up since 2002.
Rounding out the top three is Chrissy Teigen, 31, who joins the list for the first time after raking in $13.5 million over the past 12 month-period.
Making the cut for the first time, sisters Gigi, 22, and Bella Hadid, 21, are ranked at number five and number nine respectively, with the former making $9.5 million and the younger sibling taking in $6 million.
Fresh from her success as the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Shanghai, China, on Monday, Bella is the youngest model on the list, having just turned 21 last month.
