18-year-old Kendall Jenner might be best known as one of the younger members of the Kardashian clan, but she is going to great efforts to distance herself from her famous family.
Kendall is currently represented by modelling agency The Society, but on their website her profile lists only a first name, with no mention of Jenner at all. The majority of other models on the site list a surname, but going by this screenshot, Kendall opted out:
Back in July, the young model sparked controversy when she said her family’s fame had caused her to get less modelling work. “What I have almost worked against me,” she told Love magazine. “I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name.” She added that it was “great” when people didn’t recognise her.
Hmm… bet Kim didn’t like hearing that!
Kendall has had her fair share of bad press lately – most recently on Sunday night when she was heavily criticised on Twitter for ignoring the moment of silence for Michael Brown, texting and chatting along with sisters Kylie and Kim.
Despite the negative coverage, the model is definitely moving up in the world of fashion. She appears on this month’s cover of US Teen Vogue, and also had a shoot in Vogue itself.
Quick to get some self-promotion in, Kendall shared a picture of herself on Instagram earlier today, posing with, well, ANOTHER picture of herself. The image was captioned “sucking on my Teen Vogue.”
We hope she cops on a bit and doesn’t forget her roots too fast!
