Since we spotted Kendall Jenner rock an impressive four major runways at New York Fashion Week, spring/summer 2015, including Tommy Hilfiger, Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg and Marc Jacobs, we’ve had our eyes peeled for more Kardashian-sibling Katwalk moments to swoon over.
There was no sign of Kendall at London Fashion Week, despite her BFF Hailey Baldwin walking for Topshop. Having caused a pap frenzy sitting FROW-side last season, we were banking on a catwalk turn but it seems Kendall may have been practising her model strut and making the most of some down time before she single-handedly stormed Italy’s fashion capital. Yep, the 18-year old made her Milan Fashion Week debut at Fendi, no less, where she hung out backstage with Cara Delevingne before getting ready to hit the Ports 1961 show in an all-white, sheer ensemble.
Not content with two major shows on the schedule, we’ve also watched Kendall walk for Bottega Veneta, where she was snapped with Victoria’s Secret angel Alessandra Ambrosio, before she joined the modelling elite over at Pucci. That’s right, KJ sashayed down the catwalk alongside- wait for it- Joan Smalls, Binx Walton, Natasha Poly and Malika Firth, showcasing designer Peter Dundas’ latest collection for the brand. But that’s not all, because closing the show was none other than Queen of All Supermodels, Naomi Campbell! The duo were first spotted sharing fashion space at Diane Von Furstenberg in NYC, and we wonder if Naomi has been sharing her modelling tips with Kendall backstage? Oh, to have been a fly on that
And we haven’t even finished yet, because earlier today Kendall led yet another troupe of supermodels in the Dolce and Gabbana SS15 show. Say what?! The Italian power duo selected the mini Kardashian to be a part of their model army for the first time, taking part in a Seville-inspired spectacle adorned with red roses and Dolce’s usual offering of sumptuous lace and exquisite embellishment. Dreamy. Could KJ be the duo’s new model muse? Watch this space.
If you were in any doubt about Kendall’s stratospheric rise to model stardom, we’re pretty sure Milan has just cemented her reputation as the hottest new face on the block. And now there’s just one question hanging on our lips- which Parisian catwalk will Kendall strut down first?
