Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian‘s much taller younger sister and alleged Harry Styles dater, is a real model now. The 5’10″ member of the Kardashian machine just walked an actual runway show for Marc Jacobs, and she did it bravely in an unflattering wig with her nipples out and no eyebrows.
Jenner celebrated her 18th birthday a few months ago. When we turned 18 we had a 1940s theme party at an Italian restaurant. When Kendall Jenner turned 18, she celebrated being legal by posting her nipples to Instagram, now she’s taken her favorite accessories out for a walk for Marc Jacobs.
Marc Jacobs is arguably the biggest show of New York Fashion Week, and it’s a huge get for any model. For Kendall, it’s the first time she’s ever been on a runway.
“I’m a little nervous for the show, but I’m really excited,” she told Into the Gloss. “It’s my first runway show, so I’ve been practicing. I feel like everybody has their own individual walk, and that’s what makes someone so special. Maybe I’ll run down the runway! ”
We have to admit this is savvy casting for Marc Jacobs. The younger Kardashian is tall and modelly enough that she can actually walk a runway without looking like stunt casting, but throwing a completely sheer sweater on her guarantees a slew of morning-after blog posts just like this one.

“I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career,” Jenner said. “The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love everything about it—like the hair and makeup today, it’s incredible. I’ve never had my eyebrows bleached; I don’t even look like myself!”
Jenner is totally correct about that. We would not have recognized her in her short wig and edgy runway makeup, and bleached eyebrows automatically makes everyone look a little crazy. (Do not try this look at home.) She did not look at all out of place on the runway, and if she intends to be an actual, working fashion model, she’s off to a pretty good start.
