Yep, it's true: In a single day, the highest-paid model in the industry earns the equivalent of many people's yearly salary. Forbes just released its new list of the top-earning models of 2018, and none other than 23-year-old Kendall Jenner took the number one spot. Forbes reports that Jenner raked in an impressive $22.5 million in just 12 months—divided by 365 days in a year, that comes out to roughly $61,600 per day. Let that sink in for a minute. That high number reflects Jenner's slew of contracts with top brands this year, including Estée Lauder, Adidas, and Calvin Klein. (Not to mention her many magazine covers.)

Karlie Kloss nabbed the number two spot on the list, with $13 million in payouts this year thanks in part to her deals with Swarovski, Adidas, and other brands. Scroll down to see who else made the top five in Forbes's list of the highest-paid models of 2018.
