WTF?! Kendall Jenner Trashes $10k Dress And Becomes A Human Paintbrush All In The Name Of Performance Art
Who knew Kendall Jenner could do funny?
Kendall Jenner isn’t particularly known for her sense of humour, but the supermodel certainly made us LOL with this tongue-in-cheek send up of performance art.
Appearing in a video with BFF Gigi Hadid for the 10th anniversary of W magazine, Kendall recreated iconic pieces by the likes of Yoko Ono, Ulay and Marina Abramovic, and Yves Klein.
This involved inviting others to cut up the $10,000 dress, throwing paint all over herself to become a human paintbrush and walking through many sheets of paper. Yes, really.
Kendall explained: “I mean, being a supermodel’s great. You’re flying on private jets, Karl [Lagerfeld]’s my friend, but I think my soul is being an artist.
“I mean, when you’re a model, you’re a mannequin for other people. I want to be a director of my own vision now.
“So I’ve researched a tonne of performance art pieces and I really want to give an homage to them.”
In a scene with bestie Gigi, Kendall jokes that she is worried about whether she is showing any signs of premature aging. You know you look flawless, Kenny!
“Wait, do I have wrinkles when I do this?” she asks Gigi, before her pal replies, “It’s like, you’re 20 now, you know?”
Someone give these supermodels their own sketch show, stat.
