Kendall Jenner has been named the most popular model on Instagram for 2015!
Kylie Jenner is usually the most popular idol amongst the Jenner/Kardashian girls amongst the youngsters, mainly because of the lip and hair trends she’s been setting up over the past year. However, her big sister Kendall climbed on the modelling throne when she was named the most popular Instagram model of the year.
Modeling has brought celebrities like Kate Moss and Gisele Bundchen millions. But for younger models like Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner money comes flying their way without the need of a professional photo shoot or a night on the catwalk. In fact, present day models, who are popular on the social media are earning money simply for uploading photos of themselves on social networking websites like Instagram and Twitter. By promoting brands and products on their personal accounts (even by simply posing with a lipstick or next to a bag) they actually make more money that you can imagine.
According to official reports, models like Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne are making up to $300,000 per photo on Instagram if it’s related to a brand they have a contract with. And by the looks of it, Kendall has won over the competition and has been crowned as the most popular model on Instagram. Her 43.9 million followers on the social media are making her richer than her part in Keeping Up With The Kardashians will ever make her. Kendall’s contracts with Calvin Klein, Estee Lauder and other brands make it possible for her to earn more money posting photos on Instagram rather than working at an actual photo shoot or walking the catwalk. While Kendall takes the first spot as the most popular model on Instagram, the industry’s favorite fresh faces Cara, Gigi and Karlie Kloss aren’t that far behind the 20 year old Jenner.
