Kendall Jenner to Haters Everywhere: #BeCoolBeNice

As a member of one of the most closely followed — we’re talking social media spectators, commissioned camera crews as well as pestering paparazzi — families in the history of everything, Kendall Jenner is no stranger to scrutiny and, in turn, criticism. Fortunately, the Vogue cover conqueror has become a pro at brushing it all off. (Case in point: When her ballet-inspired video for Vogue España provoked the ire of the dance community, the 20-year-old supermodel simply disabled the comment function on all targeted Instagram posts. Boom. Problem solved.)

Now, in conjunction with her latest cover, this one for biannual indie magazine Garage, the thick-skinned reality star has partnered up with Be Cool Be Nice, a new campaign promoting kindness and respect online. (Side note: Where does she find the time?)

In the accompanying feature, Kenny shares her advice for fellow victims of cyberbullying. “Let’s face it – everyone is going to have an opinion,” Jenner told the glossy, which, along with Be Cool Be Nice, also teamed up with Snapchat to promote the initiative. “[The] best advice I have is to realize just that, everyone’s always going to be saying something and if you concern yourself with that, you’re in for a giant headache. What matters is how you feel. If you like that picture or you feel good in that outfit, fuck it. Gaining perspective does wonders.”

The Marc Jacobs muse, who has spent seemingly the entirety of her career fighting for the respect of her fashionable peers and predecessors, added, “I aim to treat others as I want to be treated. I know that sounds slightly basic, but when it comes to humans and human nature, the simplest answer is usually the right one. It really is as easy as that.”

Joining Kendall on the cover of Garage is Willow Smith, another ethereal and enlightened beauty wise beyond her years.

And, because this is a Snapchat collaboration, when readers scan the Snapcode on the Garage cover, they’ll unlock special filters through which they can transform the cover stars. Dasha Zhukova, Editor-in-Chief of Garage, hopes the project will “push the boundaries of publishing and technology; fashion and social awareness; premium, luxury content and accessibility.”
