Kendall Jenner turns 20 years old today, but it feels like she’s been in the public eye for a long time — possibly because she’s so prolific on social media. The model and television personality was first spotted barefaced on Keeping Up With the Kardashians with her contour-loving older sisters, but since making her reality show debut, she’s become the face of Estée Lauder and has modeled for designer brands like Chanel, Givenchy, and Marc Jacobs. Recently, Vogue Paris proclaimed her a supermodel alongside Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, and Gisele Bündchen, but with over 40 million Instagram followers, Jenner has been surpassing her older counterparts in social media reach since teenagedom. As she begins her twentieth year of world conquest, we look back at her beauty evolution, from gawky braces to haute couture.
