Kendall Jenner: Fame Worked Against Me In Fashion
K-Jenn insists being on Keeping Up With The Kardashians hasn't helped her catwalk career...
You'd think that being a regular on one of America's most-popular reality TV shows would open a few doors if you wanted to branch out into fashion.
But Kendall Jenner reckons her transformation from TV personality to catwalk model has actually been hindered by her fame.
The 18-year-old star told Love magazine: "I was like, 'You know what? I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously... People think that this just came to me. But it didn't.
"What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn't take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show.
"I went on castings and some people weren't feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn't recognize me. I was like, 'Thank you. Please don't recognize me.'"
Kendall has now made a name for herself on the catwalk thanks to shows of Marc Jacobs and others - but she admits she's asked big sis Kim Kardashian NOT to come to her shows.
"Kim was invited to a lot of the shows that I was in," Kendall explained.
"She called me before and was like, 'Hey, I was invited to the show, I just wanted to let you know. Do you want me to come?' and I was like, 'No.'"
There's no hard feelings though apparently - and Kendall and Kim have even teamed up for Balmain.
