Name dropping with Kendall Jenner
Cementing the fact that she’s gunning for supermodel status, Kendall Jenner — yes, of the Kardashian Klan — has officially dropped her last name in favor of the mega-model-making single moniker. It may be premature, considering the elite company she’s attempting to keep — Kate, Naomi, Gisele — but in some respects it makes sense.
“I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model because of the TV show,” the teen model lamented. “I went on castings, and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name.” With the ever fickle tastes of the fashion world not exactly jibing with reality TV, and considering that the model’s client list includes the likes of tastemakers like Vogue, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Chanel, it doesn’t seem like a bad career move for Jenner…
I mean Kendall.
