Kendall Jenner is one of the hottest models in the world, and the reality TV beauty has now landed one of the most coveted honours in fashion, as she becomes the face of Vogue’s iconic September issue.
Reality TV clan the Kardashian-Jenners are becoming major players in fashion. Kendall’s sister Kylie recently made a splash by rocking retro-chic in Puma’s latest ad campaign. Not to be outdone by her sibling, Kendall Jenner is now being hailed as the “break out model of her generation.”
Kendall is one of those women whose meteoric rise changed modelling forever. A leading figure in the “social media modelling movement,” the reality star uses her strong following on sites like Instagram to give fans a “fly-on-the-wall” glimpse of modelling. She has modelled for everyone from Marc Jacobs and Givenchy, to Chanel and Balmain, showing that she’s got what it takes to be an A-list model.
Face of September
Kendall’s A-list status has now been cemented by Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour, who recently invited the model to appear on the cover of the magazine’s celebrated September issue. Thanks largely to Wintour and Vogue, September has now become the biggest month in fashion.
The Mirror gives us a glimpse of Vogue’s September 2016 cover (below). It features Kendall rocking tousled brunette locks swept to one side, while wearing a pink ribbon-adorned black and gold matador jacket, along with matching trousers and accessories. As she pouts at the camera, Kendall is touted on the cover by Vogue as “the face that launched a billion likes,” referring to her star power on social media.
The September issue of Vogue also features a piece which explores Kendall’s rise as one of the world’s top models. In the article, big sister Kim Kardashian, also known as “the woman who has broken the internet several times,” commented that Kendall has an amazing work ethic. Explaining, Kim gushes that “she had her eyes focused on exactly what she wanted to do and she made it happen.”
Kendall said: “Two years ago, when I first started this, I thought: This is going to be so embarrassing. No one is going to accept me, and it’s going to be a complete failure.” Going on to talk about her first ever show, with Marc Jacobs, Kendall admitted that “Marc invited my whole family to that first show, and I was like, ‘I love you guys, but can you please just not come?’

“I was trying so hard to be taken seriously, like, ‘Guys: This is not a joke or a stunt; this is what I want to do with my life.’ I had to prove that I could do it.” She did more than that, as Kendall has now joined a select group of models in fronting Vogue’s September issue. Writing on social media, she raved: ““Kendall stars on September issue” those words give me chills! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.”
