Kendall: Estée Lauder campaign is rewarding

Kendall Jenner has called her Estée Lauder perfume campaign the biggest moment of her career to date.

The 19-year-old model has worked hard to be taken seriously in the industry as she initially found fame via her family's reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Although she's walked for the likes of Chanel and Marc Jacobs she's also fallen victim to some snobbiness by her peers, which is why she's so proud to be the face of Estée Lauder's latest scent Modern Muse Le Rouge.

"This is so important to me because I feel it really validates all my hard work. This is a huge moment in my career and it's something I've always wanted to do... My dreams are becoming my reality and I feel so lucky," she told Daily Mail's Femail.

Although Kendall's ambassador role with the cosmetics giant was announced last year, this is the first time she's fronted a perfume. In the campaign she's seen in a bright red trouser suit which fits perfectly with the fragrance's name, and helps her stand out against the drab Los Angeles background.

The teenager was thrilled to film the shoot in the City of Angels as that's where she's from, although it wasn't always easy.

"It was shot right after my birthday in LA so I was in great spirits! Also to be shooting in my home town, nothing better. We had shot in the streets of Downtown LA and went unnoticed for a bit (which is rare), however, at one point the paparazzi found us so we had to cover up with umbrellas for the remainder of the shoot," she explained.

The star also had a top tip for using the scent, revealing she forgoes the usual pressure points when she's spraying it. Instead she spritzes her hair, as she finds it lasts longer that way and so whenever she moves her head she gets a little waft.
