Kanye West must have called in some favours, because somehow, Kendall Jenner got hired to appear in a new Givenchy ad campaign – her first serious modeling gig! Sure, she’s done runway before, but there’s nothing quite like being in print, I suppose.
Surprisingly, she doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb. I think the entire campaign leaves a bit to be desired and doesn’t really convey any sort of feelings or message (not saying that’s the purpose of fashion, but you know what I mean) and there are too many models in there with weird placements.

For some reason, someone thought it was a good idea to have Kendall and Kylie Jenner host the Much Music Awards in Canada last night… and so they did, sans bras and underwear in their “risqué” dresses, which happen to be pretty ugly, as well.
What do you think of the outfits?

Kylie and Kendall Jenner “wrote” a young adult novel, Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia. I put the word wrote in quotation marks because I don’t think there’s a snowball’s chance in hell of either young woman having actually written a single word. This was probably ghostwritten — hard. However, it’s still up to them to promote the book and at least pretend that they care, which is something they apparently cannot do.
Daily News describes their behavior at their book signing at the Grove in Los Angeles, California:
[...] they posed with the novel for three minutes, scowled and refused to answer questions, then sat down for their obligatory book signing with all the enthusiasm of teenagers in a summer school algebra class.
Photographers stood in awe as security staffers surrounded the pair just minutes later, declaring “the signing is over.” Barnes & Noble organizers plead in vain for the girls to fulfill their duties, but no dice.
“The whole event was a joke,” said one attendee.
“These girls are really getting ideas above their standing in life,” that insider groused. “This type of diva behavior will come back to bite them in the ass. For years they have used the media and made millions promoting themselves in media, and then they take this ridiculous step?”
The book has a 1 star rating on Amazon. Another “surprise”.
An insider wasn’t done and went on, saying,
“It is unheard of for celebrities to hold a photo call and then actually not participate in that event,” our insider fumed. “They looked foolish and it reflected very badly on their brand.”
I say, good. They (and their psycho mom) deserve nothing.

In today’s edition of “Why Won’t Kris Jenner Just Shut Up?”, everyone’s (least) favourite momager did an interview with the Huffington Post in which she discussed her glee over 18-year-old daughter Kendall‘s numerous topless shoots and encouraged others to appreciate how “great” she looks with no clothes on. Classic Kris!
“She’s a model and that’s really her profession. And she’s really good at what she does, and she’s just come off of a great fashion week.”
Kendall had no problem with the shoot either, Kris said, as topless shoots “come with the territory” of modeling and the 18-year-old “just wants to do a good job.”
The proud mom thinks her daughter’s model-esque proportions made the shoot particularly refined.
“She has like, the perfect body, especially one that wants to be in the modeling business,” she said. “I don’t know, I got a lot of curves and I couldn’t pull that off. But she always looks remarkable.”
But it’s Kendall’s character for which she’s most grateful.
“She’s got such a good heart, and she’s such a good kid,” she affirmed. “And she’s really so happy in her own skin. She’s not shy — it doesn’t bother her.”
Yeah, and it doesn’t bother you either because you’re used to getting attention for your daughters via them getting naked, right? First Kim’s sex tape, now this? I’ve got no problem with anyone getting naked, doing naked photo shoots, doing sex tapes, whatever – but the way this family relies on it as the ONLY interesting thing about themselves is just sad. Also, sure, your parents can be fine about you doing topless shoots or whatever because it IS part of the job – but to be publicly so ecstatic about it? Ay carumba.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner are busy promoting “their” book, Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia (the fuck is with that title?), so of course the topic of Kendall’s recent purchase of a sprawling new mansion of an apartment came up. Turns out momager Kris wasn’t too happy with her daughter leaving the next and apparently “cried herself to sleep” over it. Just like she did over Kim’s sex tape leaking, eh?
From Live! with Kelly and Michael (via US Weekly):
Kendall… said her mom “definitely came up to me and told me she cried herself to sleep a couple of nights.”
The Vogue model added, in true momager form, Kris wanted to help with everything. “When it actually happened — last week I moved in — and she literally did everything, like helped moving me in and stuff and she’s like, ‘I got it. I got it,’” Kendall revealed, adding, “And I was like, ‘But this is my first place, I want to be able to do it.’”
Ay carumba. I suppose it’ll be harder to micromanage Kendall’s career if she’s not under Kris’ thumb. Then again, it might force Kris to have more time to live her own life rather than trying to live vicariously through her daughters. Still, she has Kylie at home, so she’ll be the next out on the stroll (though she’s already made a valiant start).

Kendall Jenner is actually trying to “do” something by… doing what she does best and what everyone else in her family does for money: stand in front of a camera and have her photo taken. Of course, what Kendall’s doing is more respectable (right?) because she’s a Serious Model. She even made her Serious Model debut in the June/July issue of Vogue Paris!
I dunno, I guess she’s alright. I don’t know much about modeling (thank God) but she seems to fit in well enough, and at least she’s doing that instead of… I don’t know, just standing there doing nothing like the rest of her family seems to do often enough. I just keep thinking of that episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians when Kim went with Kendall to New York to look into modeling stuff and set up this meeting with a runway coach, and Kendall thought it was a joke and wanted to leave early.
What do you think? Is Kendall Jenner a good model?
