KEEPIN’ UP WITH KENDALL: Someone please dial 911! There’s a fashion emergency happening within the Kardashian clan by the name of Kendall Jenner. But this girl isn’t committing a crime like her less sartorially-savvy older sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. This issue regards the five-alarm status of her modeling career right now.
Earlier this month, she booked a coveted slot to walk in Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2014 show in New York. Then she ‘hopped across the pond’ to walk for Giles during London Fashion Week, while squeezing in time to hobnob with Anna Wintour during the TopShop Unique show. But, if that wasn’t enough, she lands an opportunity to walk exclusively for Givenchy in Paris.
Kendall’s career launched after she signed with model management firm The Society last year. They’re a division of Elite Model Management in New York, representing bold-faced names like Adriana Lima and Lindsay Wixson. She’s also recently developed a strong business relationship with powerhouse stylist Katie Grand. This explains Kendall’s stints for Marc Jacobs and Giles; two of many designers Grand works with during show season.
But, let’s be honest here: it doesn’t hurt that she comes from reality television royalty. Her father is Olympic legend Bruce Jenner (check!) and her sister is Kim Kardashian, mother to the daughter of Kanye West (BOOM!). Surely, she’s got the look, but she’s definitely got the right connections.
