This year alone, she’s ripped the runways of every major international fashion week, was a first-time attendee at the Met Gala and Cannes Film Festival, graced the glossy pages of at least a dozen fashion magazines, and landed her first beauty campaign. Keeping up with no-last-name Kendall only goes to show that this year was her year.
Oh, and so does being included on the highly esteemed Models.com Top 50 list of 2014.
The eldest Jenner sister joins other models of the moment, including Gigi Hadid, who also hails from a famous family and has struggled to make a name for herself outside of it.
Gigi talked to ELLE about the high honor and said:
There are girls that I know—obviously I’m not going to name names—that have come from successful families or are in the spotlight, and that don’t have a great work ethic and don’t strive enough to separate themselves. They don’t want to work hard. The difference, and why I say that Kendall and I fall in the middle, is that on one side we have great families who have been in the spotlight and taught us a lot, but we also have the work ethic to back it up.
