For the first time in years, Gisele Bundchen is not Forbes highest-earning model in the world.

Forbes estimates the 22-year-old, who boasts 84 million followers on Instagram, earned $22 million from her modelling jobs between 1 June 2016 and 1 June 2017, which included deals with adidas and Estee Lauder, as well as various runway appearances. To everyone's surprise, Bundchen is no longer seated at the top spot.

Bundchen has been routed to the No. 2 spot with earnings of $17.5 million, down from last year's $30.5 million. This is still an wonderful feat for Bundchen, who had a quieter 2017. The decrease came as a result of doing fewer campaigns in total.

Kendall, on the other hand, had a very busy year.
