Admit it. You never really thought she’d ever be taken seriously as a model, did you?
We certainly didn’t, (c’mon, she’s not even 6ft or anything!). Kendall Jenner is in a place now where she can sit on a high horse and definitely tell us all to f..ck off, because we said she couldn’t do it. In this video filmed as part of her interview with Dazed Magazine which she covers this month, Kendall seems to be relishing being able to say to her haters…”in your face, there, I told you so,” as she recounts all the horrible and mean comments she got on the internet as she pursued her modelling career relentlessly.
In contrast to her sister’s earlier attempt to ‘Break The Internet’ a few weeks ago, Kendall Jenner has actually succeeded in breaking into the fashion world. She and her BFF Cara Delevingne have redefined what it means to be a super model in this era of Twitter and Instagram. The 19 year old shot to fame thanks to her family’s reality TV show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’, where we’ve watched her grow from an ordinary teenager to a beautiful woman, who’s now coming into her own.
Her fighting spirit shows what belies that gentle, childlike face and now we know that deep down, the girl is made of stern stuff. Only a woman who’s confident with an incredible ability to focus on her goal regardless of distractions can achieve what she’s done this year.
She’s walked for almost all the major fashion Houses this year from Chanel to Balmain and Dolce and Gabana. Some could argue that she managed to have such a huge amount of success thanks to her family’s well connected ties, but at the end of the day, she did it.
perfect example that even when the whole world says you’re crazy and it’s impossible, you can still achieve your dreams if you believe in yourself.
See her full interview in Dazed Magazine’s winter issue where she discusses her surge to fame and the challenges that come with it. In this editorial for the magazine photographed by Ben Toms, she certainly fits the bill.
