The 15 Highest Paid Models in the World

16 June 2016

The highest paid models in the world get paid to walk and stand around, and they get paid A LOT.

The highest paid models in the world are a beautiful bunch, obviously.

Modelling is primarily a matriarchal industry, with women earning far more than their male counterparts. David Gandy, the world’s most successful male model (you might know him from the Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue fragrance advert where he sits in a boat and wears tiny white pants) earns less than half than number 15 on this list, Kendall Jenner.

So this is the ultimate ranking of the highest paid models in the world, based on their eye-watering 2015 earnings.

15. Kendall Jenner – earned $4 million in 2015

Due to her extremely famous family and constant exposure, you’d be forgiven for assuming that Kendall Jenner would score higher on a list of highest paid models.

Her contracts have been extremely lucrative, but she’s relatively new to the modelling game – bringing in a still very admirable $4 million in 2015. Modelling in both editorial and on the runway, Kendall has represented Estée Lauder, Calvin Klein and walked for Victoria’s Secret for the first time.

With her 36.4 million Instagram followers in tow, it’s likely that Kendall will continue to be a favourite for a variety of fashion houses.
