When we first clocked Kendall Jenner modelling the brand new, BBC Children In Need t-shirt designed by Giles Deacon, we almost fell off our chairs at the sight of her cropped, shaggy locks. But, it turns out Kendall hasn’t taken to the scissors after all- she’s actually sporting a black wig as part of super stylist, Katie Grand’s shots for the campaign.
Along with the supermodel likes of Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima and Natasha Poly (also sporting the wigs), KJ is modelling this year’s tee, designed to help raise awareness (and funds) for Pudsey’s charity. Naturally, she was an obvious choice given her turn on the Giles Deacon catwalk for AW14, and she joins a hoard of other A-listers who have also got their t-shirts to help the cause. From Fearne Cotton and Kylie Minogue to Caroline Flack and Tinie Tempah, all our favourite faces are on board, rocking their Giles Deacon tees with aplomb.
The designer told us: “I have been a huge supporter of BBC Children in Need for many years now, and was delighted to offer my support this year through the design of their 2014 t-shirt. I hope that everyone likes Pudsey’s new look, and that the public buy the tee, it really will go on to help make a difference to young lives.” With the adult tee priced at just £10, and the children’s version only £7.50, we can’t think of a reason not to channel Kendall in a rainbow-print Pudsey.
You can get yours exclusively at the BBC Children In Need online shop, just in time for the annual BBC1 show on 14th November at 7pm. We wonder if Kendall will be making an appearance? If she does, we know for sure which designer tee she’s going to be wearing!
