Kendall Jenner On Earning Her Modelling Success, Why She Banned Kim From Catwalk Show And Those Justin Bieber Rumours


Kendall Jenner has walked for Marc Jacobs, Balmain and some of the world's other top designers and now is the new face of Estee Lauder.

It is the career most models work years for, and with the 19-year-old seeming to have exploded on the scene almost overnight, there has been a fair few criticisms aimed at the reality star.

However, Kendall is now hitting back on Nightline saying it is not her famous name that has led to her success - despite what many say.

Speaking to Juju Chang in a sneak peek of Monday night's episode, the teen said she is not relying on the Kardashian Jenner name.

Kendall said: 'In reality I worked pretty hard for this, running around doing tests.


'It wasn't like I just got it magically and it has just happened.'

The 19-year-old said being a model and potentially a role model, was always something she wanted to do.

'I would always be looking at these supermodels, they were just so amazing, they were like superheroes... I want to be some little girl’s superhero.

'I want to be the best role model I can be to a little girl or a little boy or to anybody.'

To Kendall's credit, in a bid to distance her modelling career from her reality star status recently she dropped her last name from her agency's website and contact cards.


The model says she has also asked her famous family not to come to her shows.
'Banned is a strong word, it is more of a mutual understanding.

'I think if my sister's sitting in the front row, and my sister is who she is, it sounds weird, but it would have almost taken the attention away from what I'm trying to do on my own.'

Kendall also got tongues wagging when she stepped out on the Marc Jacobs runway in New York earlier this year in a nipple flashing top.

The young star says the revealing look was not big deal and those who say she is an exhibitionist will just have to 'get over it'.

'Who's going to argue with Marc Jacobs when he's putting you in an outfit, you know what I mean?' Jenner said. 'It was an amazing moment. And, I do not regret it.'


The star also opened up about rumours she was dating Justin Bieber - something she seems to think is laughable.


'He's a longtime friend of our family, everyone always likes to assume things but no.'

And, there is not anyone else either as Kendall says for the moment she is single.

'I'm truly focusing on my career, if it comes, it comes.'

As for the other relationship in her life, her parents' Kris and Bruce Jenner, the star said the divorce period was rough but they are over it.

'It sucked, but it’s not - I try to think of it as it’s not the worst thing that could have happened.


'I still am so close with both my dad and my mom. Nothing has really changed, except for the fact that now my dad lives on a beach, which is awesome. 

That’s not that bad... everybody’s happy.'
