Tyra is giving Kendall her stamp of approval! The ‘America’s Next Top Model’ creator — who just launched her own beauty line for HSN — tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why she thinks Kendall is so good for the industry.
When it comes to the world of fashion and beauty, supermodel Tyra Banks knows what’s up, so it’s a big deal that she’s totally supporting Kendall Jenner’s runway takeover! Kendall, 18, has enjoyed a meteoric rise in the modeling world but there’s also been some serious backlash, with people complaining that the reality star hasn’t earned her place at the front of the pack. But Tyra definitely isn’t one of the haters — and her reason why may surprise you.
Tyra Banks On Kendall Jenner’s Career: Supermodel Is Proud Of Reality Star
There’s no doubt that Tyra worked hard to get to where she is today. So what does she think of Kendall’s overnight success? She tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she couldn’t be happier for the budding beauty, saying, “I’ve seen her walking on a lot of runways recently and I’m super proud of her, because I think the fashion industry does need names.”
“So when I see Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne — the industry is desperately in need of names and I think social media has allowed models to burst away from the pack and be known for being models and being able to compete now with actresses and singers that have been taking the covers of magazines and advertisements. I’m really proud of those girls, including Kendall.”
We’re thrilled that Tyra is so supportive of Kendall. We love her on — and off — the runway!
