Kendall is goth-inspired in this new fashion campaign for Marc Jacobs, with dark nails and eyes, and huge, crimped hair. Do you love this look?
Manicurist Jin Soon Choi posted this behind the scenes photo of Kendall on her Instagram on June 23. She’s wearing short, black nails. Her edgy hair, a crimped fro with faux feathers, was styled by Guido Palau, the Global Creative Director for Redken. Her dramatic smokey eye makeup was done by Diane Kendal.
Kendall Jenner: Goth For Marc Jacobs — Crimped Hair & Dark Eyes
Marc Jacobs wrote a loving message on his Instagram, sharing the campaign image of Kendall:
I will always remember the first time I met Kendall during castings for our Fall 2014 fashion show. Katie Grand invited her to come by the studio for a brief introduction before she was photographed for the model boards. At the time, I knew very little about Kendall…
As history now has it, her very first fashion show was for Marc Jacobs Fall 2014. Kendall has since been a part of every show along with being featured in our Spring ’15 ad campaign (also shot by David Sims). It goes without saying that Kendall has gone on to establish an incredible career for herself and every bit of it is a testament to her hard work, passion and desire.”
Marc continued: “During castings for Fall ’16, due to the enormous height of the boots we designed, we had to make certain that each girl was able to walk (and walk safely). Kendall slid those boots on and walked around the studio as if she was in a pair of running shoes: statuesque, confident and just as enthusiastic and excited to be doing the show as if it was her first one.
For me, it is the ability of a model to effortlessly transform into a look and character that makes her so appealing and inspiring.

She must be on cloud nine — what terrific compliments from such an important designer!
