Kendall Jenner on sister Kim K’s ‘insane style’

Kendall Jenner has spoken about her experience transitioning from reality TV stardom into international modelling fame.

The 19-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is currently enjoying a thriving modelling career, having landed campaigns for huge brands including Calvin Klein Jeans.

But Kendall still thinks her sibling Kim’s taste in fashion rivals hers.

“I really admire Kim’s style. It’s insane. She really knows how to work her style with her body. I think she could be a major fashion icon,” the teenager gushed to Harper’s Bazaar magazine in a new interview for their May 2015 issue. “It’s so fun to be in Paris with her, but I’ll walk out and be like, ‘Oh, my God, I love my outfit,’ and then I’ll see Kim and I’ll be like, ‘My outfit sucks compared to yours!’”

Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld has referred to Kendall as fashion’s “girl of the moment”.

But the humble star is just happy to be living her dream.

“I started this hoping that it would have longevity,” Kendall shared. “I didn’t come into this thinking it’s going to be a fun thing that I’m going to do on the side. It’s something I want to do my whole life. It’s a career, so I needed to be really gentle with it. We had to pick and choose things very specifically.”

Kendall has developed friendships with some of the fashion industry’s hottest stars, including Cara Delevingne, Joan Smalls and Gigi Hadid.

Although it was rumoured the star was bullied early on in her career, she thinks it’s important to be on good terms with colleagues.

“Just through work,” Kendall said of how she became pals with famous supermodels. “I think it’s super important. You have to be around these girls for work, for parties, for events, for shows, especially. It’s good to have a set of girlfriends that you can stand being around. You have to be around these people all the time!”
