Kendall Jenner has made her Vogue debut. The 18-year-old model appears in an editorial shot by Patrick Demarchelier wearing a selection of luxury scarves. Surprisingly, Kendall’s ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ background isn’t referenced in the shoot, nor is there an accompanying interview, The Telegraph newspaper reports. The move follows on from rumours that Kendall was trying to break away from the reality TV show to be taken more seriously as a fashion model and detach herself from her family’s fame.
She recently said: “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. Because of the TV show. 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.'”
It seems as if all the stunning brunette’s hard work has started to pay off as in addition to her first high-fashion shoot for the style bible, Kendall recently landed her first major fashion campaign for Givenchy.
The model stars in the French fashion house’s autumn/winter 2014 adverts, which were shot by esteemed fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
The industry newcomer features alongside established Givenchy models Mariacarla Boscono and Julia Nobis in the campaign, as well as American socialite Peter Brant II.
Kendall was clearly chuffed with the results, sharing a sneak peek of two of the images on her Instagram account.
She captioned them, “the @givenchyofficial campaign! thank you. YOU’RE AMAZING @riccardotisci17 @mertalas @macpiggott”, before adding, “SICK”.
