After wowing the fashion world with great walks at New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week, Kendall Jenner is all set to achieve another dream: to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel. Rumors are circulating that Kendall is next in line to join the beautiful models who represent the iconic lingerie brand.
Some Victoria’s Secret Angels who have graced the widely-viewed Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show include supermodels Gisele Bundchen, Heidi Klum and Naomi Campbell. Now that Kendall has logged in some serious fashion shows in New York and Paris, the 18-year-old is reportedly raring to join their ranks and try what she once called her “dream modeling job.”
Kendall might just get her chance, too. According to In Touch Weekly, a source disclosed that Victoria’s Secret is eyeing Kendall to be their next Angel for this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. “They saw all the buzz she got from walking in New York Fashion Week. They’d love to lock in a contract with her,” said the source.

Kendall has also been photographed by longtime Victoria’s Secret collaborator Russell James for his book, Angels, which was launched in September. The book includes portraits of Adriana Lima, Karlie Kloss and Candice Swanepoel, supermodels who have also been Victoria’s Secret Angels. The outlook seems positive for Kendall’s Angel aspirations, especially since she has modeled for big designers such as Diane von Furtenberg, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs and brands such as Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Pucci.
One fashion icon singing his praises for Kendall is designer Michael Kors. The Project Runway judge recently spoke to E! News at the special dinner he hosted for Claiborne Swanson Frank’s new book Young Hollywood in Beverly Hills.
“I think she’s a strong, powerful, great-looking girl. She’s a real professional. I love that her card just says Kendall. So she’s not trading on her name and I think she’s going to have a great career,” Kors said.
