Just shy of her sweet 16, Kendall Jenner hit the catwalk in 2011 for designer Sherri Hill. And it’s been one success after another since then. It wasn’t until 2014, though, when she got her big break at Marc Jacobs. (Who could forget that see-through top and those bleached brows!)
The Kardashians are changing the world’s perception of plastic surgery. The most talked about family in the country has publicized and filmed procedures, and despite push and pull with the media and fans, they have a tendency to fess up to the treatments they’ve had. “Kylie decided to plump her lips and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that,” Khloé said after the then 17-year-old Kylie admitted to having lip fillers after months of insisting otherwise. "I think if you’ve done something though, it is right to cop up to it.
Selma Blair is one of those actresses who will live on forever in pop culture iconography. I’ve gladly and profusely stated my admiration for her.
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.
Kris Jenner is in the house y’all! Photo: You never know which celebrity will pop up in which front row during Paris Fashion Week—except for one. Kris Jenner’s a given at Balmain, especially now that daughters Kylie and Kendall are two of the faces featured in the brand’s latest campaign, and the latter is guaranteed to walk its runway. Post-show, the matriarch gushed. “My favorite pieces have to be the ones that Kendall wore,” she told Yahoo Style. “Gigi and Bella looked beautiful.” (Shocker!) But it was designer Olivier Rousteing who really had something to say about his SS16 collection.
“I love it — like, I loved it,” said Kardashian. I give her everything and more — my arm is so tired — she is so deserving, and if I would want anyone to follow in my footsteps, anyone to borrow my clothes, anyone to share my glam team, it’s King Kylie.” “Oh my God, I love you, Princess Kim,” said Jenner.
It wasn’t that long ago that the Kardashians were a joke. Barbara Walters famously told the Kardashians during an on-camera interview: “You don’t have any, forgive me, talent.“ Jon Hamm once told ELLE UK: “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Despite her love for fashion, Kim’s first magazine cover involved wearing very little when she was on the 2007 cover of Playboy.
@KourtneyKardash/Instagram If there’s one mantra the Jenner family believes in, it’s “family first.” On Wednesday, the entire Jenner crew—Brody, Brandon, Kylie, Kendall, Burt, Cassandra, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney—showed up to the ESPYS in honor of Caitlyn Jenner, who was set to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award. In Instagram pictures posted by almost all of the Kardashian-Jenner ladies—with the obvious caption choices like “SQUAD” and “CLIQUE”—Kylie made a quick transformation, changing into pants and a leather jacket.
When it comes to fashion and style, 2014 did not disappoint. There were princess brides (Amal, Angelina, Kim) and unlikely muses from Dorothy of the Wizard to Ruth Bader Ginsburg. There was no shortage of butts, baby bangs, and normcore fashion as sneakers and the Apple Watch became the must-have accessories. There were high heels and monochromatic color —sometimes trend-setting by the same person (Solange anyone?).
