“Kendall Jenner Makes Forbes’ Top Earner list as Youngest Model, Raking in $4 million at 19 years old”

At the young age of 19, Kendall Jenner is a rising star in the world of fashion, quickly making a name for herself on the runway. She recently made her debut on Forbes’ list of top-earning models, showcasing her potential to become one of the industry’s leading figures. Despite her age, the reality TV star has already earned $4 million, securing her a spot just below seasoned supermodel Kate Moss on the prestigious list.

Model earnings: Kendall Jenner has entered Forbes' list of highest-paid models for the first time at the age of 19, ranking in eighth place 

Kendall Jenner has made her debut on Forbes’ prestigious list of highest-earning models at the young age of 19, snagging the eighth spot. Although Gisele Bundchen’s whopping $44 million income outshines the rest of the top ten, Kendall is holding her own against more seasoned models in terms of earnings.

The American beauty has triumphed over renowned models like Jourdan Dunn and Kate Upton, while proving to be a tough competitor for Kate Moss, who earned $4.5 million in the previous year. Despite her young age, Kendall kickstarted her modeling career at 14, signing with Wilhelmina Models and landing her first gig in a Forever 21 campaign.

Bank balance: The teen has earned $4million in the past year, just half a million short of Kate Moss' total 

Bank balance update: The teenager managed to rake in an impressive $4 million this past year, coming close to matching Kate Moss’ total earnings. She has been featured in campaigns for renowned brands such as Givenchy, Estée Lauder, Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Calvin Klein, and Balmain. In Spring 2014, she made her mark on Fashion Weeks in New York, London, and Paris, walking for top designers like Marc Jacobs, Giles Deacon, Givenchy, and Chanel.

Thanks to her close relationships with prominent designers, Kendall has been chosen to walk in major fashion shows, notably being selected as Karl Lagerfeld’s ‘bride’ for his Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week show. This prestigious title gave her the opportunity to close the show alongside Cara Delevingne, who ranked second on Forbes’ list, in a Chanel show in Salzburg.

As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, Kendall continues to make waves on the runway for Givenchy and Diane von Fürstenberg. Her busy schedule will take her to fashion capitals like Paris, London, and Milan in the upcoming month. Despite her rapid ascent in the fashion industry, Kendall admitted in an interview with V Magazine earlier this year that her initial association with her family’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, posed challenges during casting sessions.

High earners: Gisele Bundchen's $44million earnings dwarf the rest of the top ten, while Kate Moss is the only model in this year’s ranking who featured in Forbes' first-ever Celebrity 100 list back in 1999

The earnings of high earners in the modeling industry are impressive, with Gisele Bundchen leading the pack with $44 million. Kate Moss, on the other hand, is a standout in this year’s list as the only model who was also featured in Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list back in 1999. Despite her success now, Kate Moss revealed that she faced numerous rejections and obstacles when starting out in the industry as a teenager.

This year, the top 21 highest-paid models collectively earned a whopping $147 million before taxes between June 2014 and June 2015. It’s worth noting that Kendall Jenner made history as the youngest model on the list, while Kate Moss continues to make waves as a timeless icon. Gisele’s reign at the top of the list for the ninth consecutive year speaks volumes about her enduring success in the competitive world of modeling.

Top designers have shown a preference for Kendall Jenner by selecting her for their runway shows, particularly Karl Lagerfeld who even chose her to be the center of attention in his Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week show back in July.
