Kendall Jenner's Runway Evolution | New York Fashion Week

Kendall Jenner's Runway Evolution:
An unfortunate report in the new issue of In Touch Weekly (via The Daily Mail) alleges that Kendall Jenner was bullied by some of her fellow catwalking waifs during New York Fashion Week earlier this month. Despite Kendall's many proclamations that she hasn't received special treatment—she says she's even had to work harder to overcome "her name"—an apparent Fashion Week insider told InTouch that other models "didn't think it was fair that she was there."
This wouldn't be the first time a new and suddenly popular face has endured some hazing — the industry is rife with rumors, horror stories even, of intimidation, malicious pranks, and outright bullying. (In the modeling world, you can be the flavor of Fashion Week one season and barely booked the next; models concerned about their standing in the business have often been known to take it out on the new girls seen as challengers for the best jobs.) In Touch says Kendall had a bad time in particular, as an obvious foil for this frustration—she reportedly dealt with all sorts of backstage bitchiness, and some models maybe even put their cigarettes out in her drinks.

 
It's a sad, sad story, if true. But there'll always be an "if" about it, because for Kendall to confirm the news and speak out, she'd be accepting an even worse reputation among her peers. In many ways, the world of modeling is like Fight Club, and in particular, one of the first rules is that you don't talk about it (i.e. the bad stuff).

 



Kendall Jenner's come a long way from her early teen appearances on the runway. Once a novelty celeb runway casting, today she's a bonafide catwalker, having graced the runway of Chanel , Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and more. What's more, she's proven she's not just a one season wonder. Here, a look at her runway evolution.
