It is no surprise that Kendall Jenner, being a Kardashian and supermodel, has become a fashion icon. Kendall constantly updates her Instagram page with flicks of her best outfits, and we are here for it! The 818 Tequila founder began modeling at age 13 when Wilhelmina Models signed her in 2009. Jenner switched to homeschooling to pursue her modeling career. After numerous magazine covers and runway walks, she moved on to more high fashion work, signing with The Society Management in 2013. Under the agency, she booked Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, Chanel, Tommy Hilfiger, Fendi, Bottega Veneta, and Dolce & Gabbana in her first year. Kendall is five-foot-eleven inches tall.
In 2015, Kenny walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show along with other notable luxury fashion brands. She then made Forbes magazine’s 2015 list of top-earning models, ranking at number 16 with an estimated annual income of $4 million. Two years later, she was named the world’s highest-paid model by the publication, beating Gisele Bündchen, who held the title for more than 14 years since 2002. She was making $22 million at this point.
Trouble with Clothing Lines
Besides modeling, Kendall and her younger sister Kylie Jenner had their own line with PacSun in 2012. The Kendall & Kylie Collection moved to Topshop three years later. In June 2017, the sisters launched a controversial line of “vintage” T-shirts on their website for their brand, Kendall + Kylie. Retailing at $125, the “Rock vs. Rap” collection featured images of famous musicians or bands like Tupac Shakur, The Doors, Metallica, Pink Floyd, and The Notorious B.I.G.. After criticism from the public and several cease and desist letters from the estates of the musicians who were featured without permission, they pulled the shirts from their website and issued a joint apology. They met more heat in 2020 when reports of their clothing alleged factory workers in Bangladesh weren’t being paid due to the coronavirus pandemic.
