The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, Kendall Jenner, has officially dethroned Gisele Bundchen as the world’s highest paid model.

The 22-year-old star has topped Forbes’ annual list, replacing Bundchen as number one, after the 37-year-old model held the top spot for 15 years.

Jenner’s earnings of $22 million over the past 12 months, is more than double what she earned just last year. This is thanks to her multimillion-dollar contract with La Perla, as well as PacSun, Topshop, Adidas and more.

Even though this is the first time since the model hasn’t held the top spot since 2002, Bundchen still earned $17.5 million, placing her second, followed by Chrissy Teigen, who joins the list for the first time with an impressive $13.5 million.

The youngest model on the list is Bella Hadid who ranked 9 with $6 million. Rounding out the list are Adriana Lima at no. 4 with $10.5 million, Gigi Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley at no. 5 with $9 million each and Ashley Graham at no. 10 with $5.5 milliom who became the first curve model to appear on the list.
