Kendall (Jenner) is quickly making moves in the fashion industry. By now, her appearance on the runway comes as little surprise. She’s walked for the likes of Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and Chanel — and her career is showing no signs of slowing down. She’s been fully embraced by some of the industry’s most influential figures, including LOVE magazine’s Katie Grand. As for her catwalk peers, well, that’s a different story. According to In Touch, Kendall got a little mean girl treatment backstage at NYFW from her fellow models who were salty about her presence.
It seems Kendall’s rise to the runway has other models, those who weren’t famous before they decided to get into fashion, a little annoyed. “The other models worked so hard to get a spot on the runway and didn’t think it was fair that she was there,” a source told the publication. The girls started taking their resentment out on Kendall, throwing shade all over the backstage area. “They started acting b****y,” the insider noted, adding that a few models even put out their cigarettes in Kendall’s drink. Ew. Also, why are they smoking backstage?
Kendall seems to be faring a little better in Milan. She posted a backstage image of herself and a fellow model this morning with the caption “you can’t sit with us.” And it’s not like Kendall’s entirely friendless in the fashion industry; she’s got buzzy models Gigi and Bella Hadid on her side as well as Ireland and Hailey Baldwin. And since her big sis is BFFs with Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci and Balmain‘s Olivier Rousteing, Kendall’s got all the allies she needs. #nonewfriends (more…)
