Kendall Jenner: Being Famous Has HURT My Modeling Career
Kendall Jenner is making it as a model despite her fame, the reality TV star tells LOVE. She’s quoted as telling the magazine, “I was like, ‘You know what?’ I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously… People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me.”
“I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model,” explains Jenner. “Because of the TV show.” The model continues, “I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn’t recognize me. I was like, ‘Thank you. Please don’t recognize me.'”
Her famous sister Kim Kardashian says of Jenner, “She had to work extra hard to gain this respect and to fight for people to see she’s serious. Marc Jacobs gave her a real shot and treated her like any other model… Then Riccardo [Tisci] and Karl [Lagerfeld] gave her a chance and she has proven that she is the real deal.”
