Kendall Jenner drops last name in smartest move ever

kendall jenner

Kendall Jenner is really trying to make it in the modeling world, and it seems to be working. She’s getting booked in big name campaigns and runway shows, but the problem is, everyone knows she is, in essence, a Kardashian. She probably isn’t taken very seriously by her fellow models and all the brands/casting agents who know what a joke her family is, so she’s decided to nip this in the bud and drop her last name altogether.

“I did it last year at all the castings too!” she told Us Weekly exclusively. “I only go by my first name.”

As to why she dropped the Jenner, Kendall told Us, “It was just my choice.”

Yeah, it would be my choice, too. Your family is a disaster, girl. That being said, it has been a benefit to her to this point. After all, what are the chances she’d have been in haute couture campaigns and runway shows if some of these designers didn’t owe Kanye West a favour or something?

  • BULLSHIT everyone knows who she is and telling everyone I am dropping the name that made me famous to go out on my own? Without your family name you would be working at the GAP

  • I also call bs. It’s easy to leave behind your name when you don’t wanna take the crap for it, and just as easy-if not easier-to take credit of your name when it benefits you.

  • What she should do is drop her first name and have plastic surgery so she no longer looks like Kim. HA HA HA HA HA!!!! I agree with both jj and Marsha–it is BS. Everyone will still know she is a Jenner (Kardashian) and this is just plain stupid or a plan for more free publicity.
