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.
