It may have been the year that the fashion world embraced the Instagram generation, but Gisele Bundchen has proved once again that she is the indisputable queen of the catwalk.
Gisele is still leaps and bounds ahead of her modelling competitors - raking in a whopping $30.5 million in the last year despite a 30 per cent drop in earnings from $44 million last year.
The Forbes rich list reveals the 36-year-old earns almost three times more than the likes of Kendall Jenner, who pocketed $10 million in the year from June 2015.
However, the Kardashian-clan member's salary is not to be sniffed at - her earnings have jumped 150 per cent from the $4 million she made in 2015 thanks to her savvy use of social media and Estée Lauder deal.
Her earnings land her in tie third position with Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss, and just ahead of fellow socialite Gigi Hadid, who took home a not unimpressive $9million, putting her in joint fifth.
In second place in the Forbes list of the world's highest-paid models is Victoria's Secret veteran Adriana Lima who pocketed $10.5 million thanks to her endorsement deals with the likes of Maybelline, Vogue Eyewear and IWC watches.
Meanwhile, model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has entered the world's highest-paid models list for the first time, above the likes of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne.
1) Gisele Bündchen 吉赛尔•邦辰
Gisele Bündchen may have seen her earnings plummet by more than a quarter, but she is still far and away the queen of the catwalk thanks to her deals with Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Pantene - not to mention her own ranges of lingerie and skincare.
The Brazilian model and actress - who made her first appearance on the cover of British Vogue way back in 1998 - has been among the highest-paid models in the world since 2004.
She is married to American football quarterback Tom Brady and has two children.
2) Adriana Lima 阿德瑞娜•利玛
Brazilian Adriana Lima has been a Victoria's Secret model since 2000, making her their longest serving 'Angel'.
But her income is not limited to the underwear brand. She also rakes in the cash from endorsement deals with the likes of Maybelline, Vogue Eyewear and IWC watches.
Like Gisele, Adriana has two children. She was married to NBA player Marko Jarić, but the couple parted ways in 2014.
3) Kendall Jenner 肯达尔•詹娜
Kim Kardashian's younger sister Kendall Jenner has well and truly stepped outof the reality TV star's shadow, earning $10 million in the year from June 2015.
Kendall's earnings have jumped 150 per cent from 2015 thanks to her savvy use of social media and Estée Lauder deal - and all at the tender age of 20.
4) Karlie Kloss (并列第三)卡莉•克劳斯
Former Victoria's Secret model Karlie Kloss has earned top dollar from her Caroline Herrera deal, adding to it in May when she was named as the new face of Swarovski replacing another former Victoria's Secret alum Miranda Kerr.
Part of Taylor Swift's 'squad', the 24-year-old is also keen on getting young girls interested in coding, partnering with the Flatiron School to create the Kode with Karlie Scholarship.
作为泰勒•斯威夫特“闺蜜团”成员之一，这位24岁的模特热衷于鼓励年轻女孩编程。她与Flatiron School合作，设立了Kode with Karlie奖学金。
5) Gigi Hadid 吉吉•哈迪德
Gigi Hadid has catapulted into the top earners thanks to the likes of her Maybelline and Tommy, Evian, BMW and Topshop deals.
Like her friend Kendall, Gigi - who actually started modelling when she was just two years old - rose to fame after her family began appearing in a reality TV show, this time The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
6) Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (并列第五)罗茜•汉丁顿•惠特莉
The Plymouth-born stunner, 29, is estimated to have earnt $9million (around £6.8million).
Huntington-Whiteley launched her Autograph lingerie range with M&S in 2012, and the range has since expanded to include a fragrance, sports wear and make-up.
惠特莉在2012年与马莎百货(M&S)合作推出内衣品牌Rosie for Autograph。之后产品扩展到香水，运动装和化妆品。
She spoke to British fashion magazine, Vogue, earlier this year about launching the cosmetics range.
She said: 'It would have been really boring to me not to have been involved. I love being a part of the process - I'm a real girl's girl so it's a dream come true. I've always loved make-up and I think modelling is the best job I could ever have had.'
7) Cara Delevingne 卡拉•迪瓦伊
Model turned actress Cara Delevingne may not be appearing on the catwalk as much any more, but her deals with YSL Beauty, Burberry and Tag Heur have helped keep her in the top 10.
The Brit, 24, has appeared in three films so far this year - including Suicide Squad - with two more scheduled for release.
8) Candice Swanepoel 坎蒂丝•斯瓦内普尔
Candace Swanepoel has come a long way from the Durban flea market where she was spotted as a 15-year-old.
The Afrikaner, 27, who is expecting her first child with her model fiance, made her first appearance on the list back in 2012.
9) Liu Wen (并列第八)刘雯
Liu Wen was the first Asian model to make the Forbes list back in 2013, and she keeps a place in the top 10 this year.
Born in south-east China, the 28-year-old is now based in New York, and has deals with Estee Lauder and La Perla.
10) Miranda Kerr 米兰达•可儿
Australian model Miranda Kerr first rose to fame as a Victoria's Secret model in 2012, having won her first modelling competition in 1997 aged 13.
