Remember the days when luxury brands favored actors and singers to represent their latest collections? The times, they are a-changing. Now supermodels, including Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, and Joan Smalls are snagging the top brand ambassador contracts.

Kendall Jenner claims the number-one spot on the annual "Very Important Endorser" list from the curated engagement tool Celebrity Intelligence (via The Drum). The reality star turned catwalker has "fronted 14 promotions," says The Drum; she has been the face of Estée Lauder, Marc Jacobs, and the Calvin Klein #MyCalvins campaign. Glu Mobile has signed her to launch a mobile game and she's appeared in a Rock the Vote commercial, too. She and sister Kylie have a clothing line deal with Topshop.

Gone from the list this year? 2014's winner of "top ambassador": Beyoncé.

The remaining top-ten brand ambassadors are as follows:

2. Karlie Kloss, Taylor Swift bestie and the face of L'Oreal Paris, who has 12 endorsements.
3. Gigi Hadid, a Victoria's Secret Angel with a total of nine endorsements.

Thank YOU so much for 18k!💞
