In a quest for world domination, the Kardashian family has dipped their toes in almost all sectors of entertainment and culture. Our society is constantly keeping up with the Kardashians, whether they’re filming a reality television show or designing a nail polish collection for OPI (which is called Kardashian Kolor and includes nail polish names like Sealed with a Kris and Khloé Had a Little Lam-Lam). But it is one of the youngest Kardashians, a Jenner actually, that has gone where no Kardashian (Kourtney, Khloé, or even Kim) has gone before: the runway.
Kendall Jenner, offspring of Kris Kardashian and Bruce Jenner, has had the fashion world is a frenzy ever since she hit the runway a few weeks ago at New York Fashion Week, walking in Marc Jacobs’s Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear show.
Jenner wore a revealing low-cut transparent gossamer top and sported blonde eyebrows and a cropped wig. Kendall’s presence on the runway had many questioning if this was some sort of publicity stunt operated by the fashion genius that is Marc Jacobs. But alas, pure beauty got Kim K’s baby sis on the runway.
Fresh from her Marc Jacobs debut, Jenner modeled the best looks of New York Fashion Week for Vogue.com, who claim she is on, “The verge of It girl-dom.” Those words coming from Vogue? Watch out fashion world, Kendall Jenner has arrived.
Do we think Kim is a bit jealous? As the story goes, Vogue’s editors refuse to put Kim and her brand in the magazine, no matter how hard Mr. Fashionisto himself, Kanye West, campaigns for her. Kendall’s photoshoot with Vogue.com is unlike any other. The shoot is a collection of “selfies” that Kendall captures on her very own iPhone. It is a reflection of youth culture and the 18-year-old Kardashian beauty’s newfound fame.
Leaving New York Fashion Week behind, Kendall jetted over the pond to London Fashion Week where she sat front row at Topshop Unique next to the Queen of Vogue, editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. Oh, and three seats over? Only the greatest supermodel of all time, Kate Moss.
Kendall’s It girl status continued to grow in London when she hit the catwalk again, this time walking the Giles show along side A-list models Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn. Modelling messy hair, heavy eyeliner, and a monochromatic dress, Jenner kept up with the pros.
Along with the youngest Kardashian, Kylie, the Jenner girls have teamed up with PacSun to create a collection inspired by California’s boho chic fashion scene and have even collaborated with Steve Madden for Madden Girl, creating handbags and shoes. Oh, and did I mention Kendall and Kylie are going to be authors as well? Yup, the sisters are in the works writing a novel about a dystopian future that tells the tale of two girls with unique super powers. Interesting.
Next up for Kendall? Paris Fashion Week.
At this point, Kendall has it all. She even may or may not be dating One Direction babe, Harry Styles. Do you hear that? It’s the sound of a million girls crying. Besides that point, Kendall is fashion’s new it-girl.
Now the question is, will she ever steal Kim’s crown?
