Checkout Highest-Paid Models 2018: Kendall Jenner Leads With $22.5 Million

The Jenner sisters are dominating the modelling and cosmetics industry.

For example, Forbes recently reported Kylie Jenner as the youngest ever "self-made" almost-billionaire, thanks to her cosmetics company that earned the mother-of-one a $900 million net worth, and $166.5 million this past year.

And as for Kendall Jenner she's earning more than any other model in the world.

According to Forbes, the 23-year-old banked $22.5 million in the 12 months prior to June 2018 to top this year's ranking of the highest-paid models.

Kendall scored her career-best from contracts with Estée Lauder, Adidas and Calvin Klein, among others. Jenner edges out supermodel Karlie Kloss, who earned $13 million.

But while Kendall has continue to earn high salary, not all of her fellow models have been impressed with her, because of her condescending attitude after getting slammed for saying she was 'super selective' about what brands she walks for earlier in the year. :

Kendall told Love Magazine in August that, 'Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the f**k those girls do. More power to 'em.'

However, many of her colleagues including Victoria's Secret's Jac Jagaciak were not happy with her disrespectful comments.

Jac wrote, 'This makes me so angry.' 'So disrespectful to literally 99% of people in the industry — yes, they had to work their way up. Please get in touch with the real world!'

My view: If you have a mother like Kris Jenner that is media/PR savvy you'll always top the list of everything even when you don't do any modelling job for about 6-months or more, all you have to do is to be selective and pick 3-5 catwalk shows, then you'll be the highest paid model in the world. From a daughter that is almost a self made billionaire, to a daughter that is the highest paid in the modelling industry for the second year in a row and their KUWTK season 15 finale ratings dropping sharply, as no one watches that show anymore, people are smarter now and they can see through the Kardashians/Jenners. The spin/hype of this family is second to none, do they think we are fools or what? I think people are just fed up watching them, as they are annoying and irritating, just like reality star Trump. E News should do us a favour and cancel the boring reality show, I concur with Wendy Williams for E to take it off the air. Why watch the show when you get to see free naked pictures they post on Instagram. It's baffling how a condescending woman like Kendall Jenner is the highest paid model in the world after receiving backlash for saying, 'Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the f**k those girls do', her level of arrogance is unbelievable.
