    There's a new queen of the runway.

    A new report by Forbes Magazine says Gisele Bündchen has been dethroned by Kendall Jenner as the world's highest earning model, the first time Bündchen hasn't held that title since 2002.

    The 22-year-old reality TV star pulled in $22 million in the 12 months leading up to June 2017. Forbes cites Jenner's numerous endorsement deals with the likes of Estée Lauder, La Perla and Adidas among others for fattening her financial portfolio. She also has paychecks from her family's reality TV show as well as her Kendall + Kylie clothing line with her sister, Kylie Jenner.

    Bündchen, married to New England Patriots QB Tom Brady, is still doing pretty well for herself, coming in second earning $17.5 million — but still a noticeable dip form her 2016 earnings of $30.5 million.
