It sure does pay to be social. While most mere mortals on Instagram get excited if their photos receive more than 50 likes, there are a select few that get hundreds of thousands of Instagram likes and command a fortune for brands to have them post about products.  According to CR Fashion Book the top three Instagram models, the current “It-girls” like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevigne get paid anywhere from $125,000 to $300,00 USD for a single Instagram post!

Numbers like this are mind-boggling and clearly show that the modelling industry has drastically changed, allowing models to gain massive sums of money outside the standard framework of campaign work, runway shows and appearances.
