Kendall Jenner Makes Her MFW Debut At Fendi Following Bullying Claims

Yahoo Fashion Blog

She’s clocked up appearances on the New York and London Fashion Week runways.

And now model-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner has finally made her Milan Fashion Week debut – at Fendi, no less.

The 18-year-old Keeping up with the Kardashians star joined Brits Cara Delevingne and Georgia May Jagger on the MFW runway.

Kendall held her own against more experienced models including the world’s number one, Joan Smalls and famous face Lindsey Wixson.

She was modeling the brand’s Spring / Summer 2015 collection - designed by Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld - in the Italian fashion capital.

The collection’s key colour palette was blue and black and was inspired by the architecture of the European country.

Kendall’s appearance at MFW comes days after it was revealed that she has been ‘bullied’ by other models.

The model is the younger sister of the Kardashian clan but it trying to make it in high-fashion without her family connections.

But according to sources, some models at New York Fashion Week weren’t happy about the fact she was walking with them despite having less experience.

“The other models worked so hard to get a spot on the runway and didn’t think it was fair that she was there,” the source told In Touch magazine.

“They thought she was getting special treatment and just weren’t okay with it."

Presumably the other models were a bit miffed that Kendall hit the catwalks of Marc Jacobs, Diane Von Furstenberg and Tommy Hilfiger despite being really quite inexperienced. And presumed that she was chosen thanks to her family name and brother-in-law Kanye West's connections in the fashion world.

The insider continued: “They started acting so bitchy— some even put out their cigarettes in Kendall’s drink!

"Models can be cruel, especially with someone new and entitled.”

Kendall has recently discussed her hopes for her modelling career, telling LOVE Magazine that she wanted to be taken seriously.

"I want to be high fashion," she said.

Though we can imagine how frustrating it must be to see a young whipper-snapper sailing past you in the career stakes thanks to her family connections, we've got to admit that choosing Kendall to walk is a sensible business decision by designers.

Afterall, who's going to get more column inches? Kendall or some unknown model who's been slogging away on the lower-level catwalk circuits for years?

It ain't fair, but that's fashion.
