Kylie and Kendall Jenner are proving to the world that they aren't just "those other taller Kardashian sisters." While Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe are famous for being famous, Kylie and Kendall may make careers out of being full-fledged models.
15-year-old Kendall Jenner has been doing print modeling for some time now with Leah Madden's swimwear line and the Sherri Hill dress line campaigns, but last night was her official runway debut.
Kendall walked in the Sherri Hill Spring 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Earlier this week, Kendall sat in the front row cheering and snapping photos of her sister Kylie who walked for Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn line. Last night it was Kendall's turn to strut her stuff.
After the show she tweeted, "OMGGGG just finished my first ever runway show for @sherrihill!! #amazing #imaddictedtorunway!"
Sherri Hill designs prom, cocktail and pageant dresses for teens and young women, so casting actual teenage model Kendall makes perfect sense. However, CFDA regulations beg to differ.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has asked designers to prohibit hiring any model under the age of 16, however, these are the Kardashians, so I'm pretty the CFDA meant that all "regular" models must be 16 and over. I'm sure Kris Jenner waved a Kardashian Kard prepaid credit card in front of the CFDA and were like "20 bucks and my daughter walks. Do we have a problem here?" and then they were like, "No Mrs. Jenner, no problem at all."
Kim and Kourtney sat in the front row as they cheered on their lil sis. Kim tweeted, "Wow my litle sis @kendalljenner faced her fears and killed it tonight on the runway!
Another celeb spawn in the Sherri Hill show was Katie Lee Gifford's daughter (of the Today show) Cassidy Gifford.
Kendall was offered to host an event last week in NY for Fashion's Night Out but she had to cancel the event because she couldn't get out of school.
Of her modeling career, Kendall said, "My entire family was very supportive, though my dad was a bit concerned at first."
But don't forget about 14 year-old Kylie, she rocked it in Avril Lavigne's runway show, "She did a really good job. I love her edge." says Avril Lavigne.
Since Kendall and Kylie are busy storming the fashion world, everyone wants to know if we could see a spin-off show featuring only Kendall and Kylie.
Kendall tells Hollyscoop that it's just a rumor...for now, "Who knows, there is nothing really in the talks right now about Kylie and I going or doing anything, People really want us to have our own show, that would be really cool and really fun."
