2018 was a very good year for Kendall Jenner's bank account, according to Forbes...

Earlier this year, reality star-turned-beauty mogul Kylie Jenner was the youngest woman to appear on America's Richest Self-Made Women list and also topped the 2018 Instagram Rich List, as reported by Forbes

Now, Forbes has named Kendall Jenner as the highest-paid model of 2018 in the fashion industry, earning a whopping Dhs82million yearly.

The results come as no surprise given that Jenner just walked Victoria's Secret fashion show and is the face of Longchamp, Adidas and Estée Lauder.

There's been quite a few shakeups with the rest of the top 10 models, too. 

After securing the second spot last year, Gisele Bundchen fell into fifth place alongside Cara Delevingne (for Dhs36million yearly), and Karlie Kloss took the second spot with Dhs47million. 

The rest of the list saw Chrissy Teigen and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley tie in third place on Dhs42million, Gigi Hadid in seventh place with Dhs34million, Bella Hadid and Joan Smalls coming in at eighth place with Dhs31million, and Piaget ambassador Doutzen Kroes rounding out the list on Dhs29million. 

Surprisingly, however, models such as Ashley Graham and Adriana Lima (who recently walked in her final catwalk for Victoria's Secret) didn't make the cut this year. 

Now, take a look at who won 'Model of the Year' at the 2018 Fashion Awards
