Kendall Jenner may be just 22. But that has not stopped her from dethroning 15 years elder Gisele Bundchen to become world’s highest paid model.
This doe-eyed beauty takes home a whopping $22 million year as per a recent Forbes report as compared to meager $17.5 million taken by the 37-year-old model. Thanks to Kendall’s 84 million followers on Instagram as well as her successful clothing line that she runs along with sister Kylie Jenner, Kendall is definitely at the top of the world.
Kendall is one of those lucky ones who is born famous and that too with a big silver spoon in her mouth. Let’s take a quick glance at her drool-worthy, envious star-studded life:
- Kardashians Roots:
Born to TV personality Kris Jenner and Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner, now known as Caitlyn Jenner, Kendall has literally grown up in the spotlight. When she was just 12, she started appearing in her family’s reality TV show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” along with her famous half-sisters, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian.
- Kardashian Boom:
“Keeping Up With The Kardashians” has gained cult popularity in the United States. The series premiered in 2007 and is still running with its latest fourteenth season being premiered in October 2017. Despite the show drawing criticism for its lack of intelligent content and accusations of glamourizing wealth, it continued to remain popular and eventually made Kendall along with other Kardashian-Jenner sisters a household name.
- Runway modeling:
Kendall began runaway modeling at the tender age of 14. Cut to the present, she is one of the most sought-after models in the international modeling arena. During the recently-conducted New York Fashion Week, Kendall had walked the ramp for fashion bigwigs like Tom Ford, Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs.
Kendall is deemed as the ambassador of social media modeling wherein models are chosen for their online presence and social media following. The model also makes the best of her following as she reportedly had struck lucrative deals with Estée Lauder, La Perla, and Adidas among others.
That’s a big deal when you are just 22. Remember the time when young Kendall Jenner had rebuked her celeb mom and told her that money is nothing but “just a piece of paper”? Way to go Kendall!
