Kendall Jenner has been enjoying some attention for the success her relatively short modeling career has seen. Jenner is no stranger to cameras, paparazzi, or tabloid attacks. Jenner, part of the extended Kardashian clan, grew up before the eyes of millions of viewers as they watched episode after episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, a reality television series that follows members of the Kardashian-Jenner family.
Kendall’s desire to work in modeling is documented in one of the episodes of KUWTK when she makes a “portfolio” and shows her mom/manager Kris Jenner. In a later episode Kim Kardashian is seen encouraging Jenner to try her hand at runway modeling and goes as far as hiring a modeling coach for Jenner, who was reluctant.
Jenner has now walked during various fashion weeks, always for the most luxurious brands. Jenner has also posed for magazine covers, worked with some of the best photographers in the business, and cultivated strong personal friendships with designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Oliver Rousting.
However, a few models, who claim Jenner uses her celebrity fame and family connections to land modeling gigs, have criticized her rise to the top. She has since dropped her last name in an effort to level the playing field and prove her talent as a model.
Jenner is currently the face of Lancome Cosmetics and has recently signed on to a Calvin Klein ad campaign.
