Bringing home the bacon! Kendall Jenner made her debut on Forbes' 2015 list of the highest-paid models. At just 19, she is the youngest member of the bunch and beat out well-known beauties including Kate Upton and Jourdan Dunn with an annual salary of $4 million.

The exclusive list, topped by lingerie mogul Gisele Bundchen (yet again) at $44 million, includes huge household names like Cara Delevingne (whose $9 million salary ties with Adriana Lima’s), Doutzen Kroes ($7.5 million), Miranda Kerr ($5.5 million), Karlie Kloss (who tied at $5 million with Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel), and Kate Moss (who’s raking in $4.5 million).

Jenner's landmark year comes after booking high-profile campaigns with Fendi, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, and Kardashian family favorite, Balmain. 

Jenner, who first signed to Wilhelmina Models just five years ago, won't stop there. After walking in coveted shows for Diane von Furstenberg, Michael Kors, and Givenchy during New York Fashion Week this September, she'll fly to London, Paris, and Milan for even more catwalk action throughout September and October.

But the Estee Lauder Ambassador has taken away more than just cash from her booked gigs. She credits her career with raising her self-esteem, too. "When I started getting in front of the camera a lot, I think my confidence started to come out," the star told Allure in March. "It took a minute, because I had to believe in myself."

Though Jenner's confidence will certainly rise again after seeing her name on the list, it seems like no one can dethrone the reigning queen, Bundchen. The lingerie mogul has topped the chart since 2002, and out-earned her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, by nearly five times, according to Forbes. Bundchen's campaigns range from her own lingerie line, Gisele Bundchen Intimates, to gigs for Under Armour, Stuart Weitzman, Chanel, Balenciaga, Emillio Pucci, and countless others.
