It is Kendall Jenner’s time to shine, y’all. I mean, girl is everywhere. TV (Keeping Up with the Kardashians is my guilty pleasure), magazines, billboards (even on EDSA!), and online. Everywhere.
But how can you not admire this girl? She’s an ultimate fashionista, yet super chill and, according to many sources, honestly hardworking. Her Kardashian brand may have forced her into the limelight, but it’s her work ethics that has brought her to where she is now, professionally speaking.
And that, exactly, is what Marc Jacobs expressed in his heartfelt Instagram post about Jenner when she posed for his brand’s new ad campaign. Sporting a black ensemble with teased hair, pale make-up, and sky-high platforms, the 20 year old model is seen here like never before.
Take a look at the shoot here, plus the sweet message from Marc Jacobs himself branding Jenner as a “supermodel”:
KENDALL, Supermodel I will always remember the first time I met Kendall during castings for our Fall 2014 fashion show. Katie Grand invited her to come by the studio for a brief introduction before she was photographed for the model boards. At the time, I knew very little about Kendall… As history now has it, her very first fashion show was for Marc Jacobs Fall 2014. Kendall has since been a part of every show along with being featured in our Spring ’15 ad campaign (also shot by David Sims). It goes without saying that Kendall has gone on to establish an incredible career for herself and every bit of it is a testament to her hard work, passion and desire. During castings for Fall ’16, due to the enormous height of the boots we designed, we had to make certain that each girl was able to walk (and walk safely). Kendall slid those boots on and walked around the studio as if she was in a pair of running shoes: statuesque, confident and just as enthusiastic and excited to be doing the show as if it was her first one. For me, it is the ability of a model to effortlessly transform into a look and character that makes her so appealing and inspiring. Photographed by David Sims for our Fall ’16 ad as a Goth Goddess is the sweet, kind and ultimate professional, Kendall Jenner.
