Kendall Jenner for Agua Bendita

Gisele Bunchen might still be the world's highest paid catwalk queen - but Kendall Jenner is snapping at her heels.

Forbes' published its annual list of the top earning supers across the globe today - and Brazilian bombshell Gisele has landed the top spot for the ninth year in a row.

The 35-year-old mother of two raked in an eye-watering $44 million (€38m) in the last year, thanks to lucrative deals with Chanel, Under Armour and Stuart Weiztman.

Right behind Gisele and making up the top three were former Victoria's Secret Angel Adriana Lima and British model and actress Cara Delevingne.

Gisele, who announced earlier this year that she was retiring from the catwalk, had been modelling for two decades.

The wife of football star Tom Brady, Forbes' calculated her earnings as $120K a day - putting Linda Evangelista's infamous "I won't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day" statement to shame.

A new entry into the list came in the form of reality star turned fashion favourite, Kendall Jenner.

The lithe brunette made her debut on the list at a respectable 16th, only two spots behind the iconic Kate Moss.

Impressively, the second-youngest daughter of momager and Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, is also the youngest on the list.

Here is the definitive ranking of the industry's richest models, based on earnings from 2014.
