Kendall Jenner's meteoric rise in the fashion world has showed no signs of slowing since she took the runways last season for Givenchy, Giles, Marc Jacobs and Chanel. Since then, the 18-year-old reality star has found herself pictured in Vogue Paris and Interview, scored a cover of Love magazine and a spot in Givenchy's Fall 2014 campaign. Wether you think she actually looks like a high fashion model or not, Jenner's certainly racking up the credentials to fit the bill.
And today, Jenner hit another milestone in her fashion career. The buzzy model was cast for Chanel's haute couture show, clad in a tweed off-the-shoulder floor-sweeping frock complete with fringe, feathers and jewels with a pillbox topper and bedazzled lace-up sandals to match. Jenner shared a backstage image to her Instagram this morning, posing alongside another model with the caption, "birdies backstage #ChanelCouture."
How interesting to see designers, a few of which were previously wary of the Kardashian/Jenner name using young Kendall so much and in such high-profile shows. She's no Kate or Cara, but one thing Jenner definitely brings to any design house she works with is plenty of buzz. Perhaps the world is still stunned and intrigued by her success so far and are waiting to see how far she can take it. If the past few months of her career are any indication, I wager she'll be riding this fashion train for a lot longer than we thought she would.
