‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star and future supermodel, Kendall Jenner, turns 19 years old on November 3. Check out her amazing year in photos, and wish her a happy birthday!
The Kardashian-Jenner clan isn’t without its fair share of haters mad about their success, but there’s no denying that Kendall Jenner is making waves in the modeling world in her own right. Kendall turns 19 years old on November 3, and she has had an absolutely incredible year! So, let’s revisit some of the highlights, and leave your birthday wishes for Kendall in the comments below!
Kendall Jenner’s Birthday: Model & Reality Star Turns 19 On November 3
Most recently, Kendall walked the Spring 2015 runways for Chanel, Givenchy, Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Pucci, Ports1961, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Tommy Hilfiger, and Diane von Furstenberg. Phew. That’s kind of incredible.
And yes, while many may chart her success up to her famous sister (Kim Kardashian) and brother-in-law (Kanye West) who have a number of ties to the high fashion world, their influence simply cannot account for the number of jobs that Kendall has been able to land.
Kendall Jenner Dropped Her Famous Last Name From Her Portfolio
Kendall has been spending a lot of time in New York City lately, and we never see her without her modeling portfolio in hand — unless she’s on a red carpet, of course. The girl works hard and is constantly pounding the pavement, much like her similarly entrepreneurial big sisters. Sure, it’s not hard work like many may imagine it to be — she’s not hauling trash every day, after all — but it’s clear that she’s willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish her dreams.
To that effect, she has even dropped her famous last name! In a professional capacity, she’s known simply as Kendall. It’s a huge step for a then-18-year-old to make — it proves that she’s not happy with simply riding the Kardashian-Jenner coattails. While people are inevitably going to know who she is anyway, it makes a statement to would-be employers that she’s serious about her career.
Unfortunately, rumors persist that Kendall is being bullied backstage, but we can only hope that it’s not really the case. (Come on, ladies — support each other! If modeling icon Tyra Banks is all about Kendall, you can be, too!)
Kendall Jenner’s Romantic Life
This year, Kendall hosted the MuchMusic Video Awards with little sister Kylie, 17, and it went off without a hitch (despite flubbing a line at the Billboard Awards not long before)! Not to mention, she and her sister were gorgeous in their many looks for the big event.
While there’s not much to say about Kendall’s romantic life other than several reports which claim that she is gunning for Justin Bieber, 20, we can’t imagine she’d really have time for a real relationship, anyway! Her romance with One Direction‘s Harry Styles, 20, was fairly short-lived; they dated at the beginning of 2014, but distance and hectic work schedules kept them apart.
HollywoodLifers, leave some good vibes for Kendall in the comments below! (And remember — if you’re hatin’, you’re just jelly. And that’s just sad.)
