Jenner came in fourth on Forbes' 2016 models list earning $10 million.

Keeping up with the Kardashians star and very rapidly rising model Kendall Jenner has been crowned the highest paid model of 2017, earning $22 Million this year, according to Forbes. Bündchen, who formally retired from catwalk appearances a year ago, posed for adverts for Carolina Herrera fragrances, Arezzo shoes and Vivara jewellery in her homeland Brazil, but, in taking on less, her overall earnings had dropped 43% from the $30.5 million she made in 2016.

Bundchen, who still earned a cool $17.5, placed second, while Chrissy Teigen ranked third (and joins the list for the first time) after raking in $13.5 million.

Profits and dividends have dived at Easyjet but with the worst of a two-year price war over its fortunes are regaining altitude. This is an improvement on the full-year performance in which unit revenues per seat fell 0.4% to £58.23.

Karlie Kloss was also named one of the top earners after earning $9 million this year from both her work in the fashion business, but also from her own programming scheme titled Kode With Klossy, YouTube channel and her upcoming talk show on Freeform.

Kendall Jenner's earnings more than doubled from 2016's $10 million total, making her the biggest dollar and percent gainer on the ranking. Her fashion lines with Dressbarn, H&M and Swimsuits For All helped get her on the Forbes list for the first time in her 16-year modelling career.

Joining Teigen as a new top-earner is Ashley Graham, who became the first plus-sized model to appear on the annual Forbes list.
