Ten years ago, Kendall Jenner was just 11 years old. This week, she will be named Fashion Icon Of The Decade.
Jenner – half-sister of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian – will receive the honor on Sept 8 at New York Fashion Week. The title is handed out by fashion industry publication and website Daily Front Row.
Jenner is one of the fashion models of the moment, along with the Hadid sisters Bella and Gigi. Jenner has 83 million followers on Instagram. Naturally, social media lit up with commentary on the news.
Not everyone thinks the 21-year-old deserves the award. “Oh please! What about @NaomiCampbell or @CindyCrawford you know real models who got to the top due to hard work not who mummy is. Pathetic,” Twitter user Ginger Winger wrote.
Jenner has strutted her stuff on the world’s catwalks for the top labels in the business, but she’s also known for the TV reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Jenner is the daughter of Kris Jenner, the widow of lawyer Robert Kardashian, and Caitlyn Jenner.
The series has followed the lives of the Kardashians and Jenners for 12 seasons. With their TV show, cosmetics lines, video games, clothing – and general mastery of marketing and social media – the Kardashians are said to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. – AFP Relaxnews
