Kendall Jenner hopes walking for Marc Jacobs will “kick off” her career.
The younger half-sister of Kim Kardashian took to the runway for Marc’s Fall/Winter 14 show yesterday, which closed New York Fashion Week.
She was barely recognisable on the catwalk, sporting a sophisticated short wig and flashing her bare breasts through a sheer top in a very risqué move.
“I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career,” she smiled to Into the Gloss.
“The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love everything about it – like the hair and make-up today, it’s incredible. I’ve never had my eyebrows bleached; I don’t even look like myself!”
Kendall’s see-through V-neck top was tucked into a cropped pair of beige and brown trousers and the look was finished off with brown stockings and boots.
Previous modelling gigs for the brunette have included a front cover for Miss Vogue Australia and shoots for Sherri Hill’s prom dress range alongside her 16-year-old sister Kylie.
“I’m a little nervous for the show, but I’m really excited,” she admitted before hitting the catwalk.
“It’s my first runway show, so I’ve been practising. I feel like everybody has their own individual walk, and that’s what makes someone so special. Maybe I’ll run down the runway! [Laughs]”
Calvin Klein also showed yesterday, with Naomi Watts gracing the front row.
The Impossible actress looked great in a simple pale blue shift dress with her hair in a punky up-do.
“I saw it on the rack when I got to my fitting and I went right over to it. Didn’t bother trying anything else on. I mean, I loved it so why keep going?” Naomi shrugged to WWD.
Joining her was Oscar-nominated Lupita Nyong’o, who looked cute in a pastel pink dress with long sleeves.
