In what is being described as a fashion "makeunder," Kendall Jenner has stepped out in her first big shoot of the new year. The 19-year-old little sister to "break the Internet" model Kim Kardashian stepped into modeling in a big way in 2014. Now her ads for Marc Jacobs take her into a territory a bit different from her sister's.
Kendall Jenner's get-up for the Marc Jacobs shoot is military-inspired. It includes an army-green jacket with belt, fatigue-inspired culottes, and heavy sandals. She wears a boyish black wig and little makeup.
Jenner's military look is part of the Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Women's collection ad campaign. The shoot for the ad campaign happened back in October of last year. Other models in the campaign include Anja Rubik, Karlie Kloss, Adriana Lima, and Jessica Stam.
Jenner caught the attention of the fashion world when she walked the runway for Marc Jacobs last year. She recently landed two coveted modeling gigs — one as the face of Estée Lauder cosmetics, and it was announced that she will appear in the spring 2015 ad campaign for the Karl Lagerfeld collection.
Landing the Karl Lagerfeld gig was a huge feather for Kendall, especially since she got Estée Lauder and Lagerfeld in the same week.
Kendall must have really wowed Lagerfeld. He had her walk the Chanel couture show this summer by special request. Now they’re signing contracts.
The Estée work is a natural fit for Kendall. She’s been around it all her life.
“I’ve grown up with Estée,” Jenner said last year, "that was all my mom would use. I remember the old lipstick cases that were gold and mirrored. It’s such a family brand for me because it’s been there my whole life so it is crazy to actually be doing this today.”
