Kendall Jenner earned $4 million this year, becoming the youngest model on the Forbes’ 2015 list of the highest-paid models.
Gisele Bundchen topped Forbes’ highest paid models list, earning $44 million, followed by supermodel Cara Delevingne, who tied with Adriana Lima with $9 million, 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 made $4.5 million).
At 19, Kendall earned more than supermodel Kate Upton, thanks to her lucrative modeling contracts with Fendi, Calvin Klein, Estee Lauder, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, and Balmain.
The leggy 5-foot-10 Kendall has also become a hit at fashion weeks around the world, where she has walked the runways in New York, Paris, London and Milan.
Kendall, who’s in incredible shape, credited lots of detox tea and a low-carb diet for her slammin’ bikini body, Examiner reported.
“I usually start my day off with a cup of detox tea,” said Jenner. “I have 12 cups a day.” For snacks, Kendall eats low-sugar fruits like apples and strawberries and avoids processed junk food.
For exercise, the gorgeous brunette prefers cardio exercise. “I like running,” she shared. “I’ve been trying to get back into it.”
Jenner’s beauty secret also includes plenty of sleep. “My beauty secret for fashion week is just getting a good amount of sleep,” said Kendall. “I feel like I at least need about seven, eight hours of sleep to function.”
In 2014, Kendall’s half-sister, Kim Kardashian, lost 56 pounds in six months on a low carb ketogenic-style Atkins diet that limited her daily carb intake to less than 60 grams.
Limiting carbs encourages your body to burn fat for fuel, said Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity. Low-carb diet expert Dr. Jeff Volek agrees.
“Carbohydrate restriction is the proverbial ‘silver bullet’ for managing insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes,” said Volek, author of the bestseller, The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living.
