Kendall Jenner is known for being the reserved younger half-sibling of Kim Kardashian on the reality show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” but the teenager has gained some notoriety of her own in the fashion world. And according to Radar Online on Feb. 21, Jenner may have to ditch the wildly successful reality show in order to focus on her fashion career.
“Kendall has been told by several high profile fashion photographers that she definitely has a future in modeling,” a source close Jenner tells the website.
“However, she was advised that continuing to appear on reality television will diminish interest in her as a model. The problem also is scheduling. Kendall is contractually obligated to appear on the show and there is a huge time commitment involved.
Jenner caused a social media frenzy when she appeared on the catwalk at the Marc Jacobs show during New York Fashion Week. What’s more, the 18-year-old was spotted shortly after sitting front row at the Topshop Unique show at London Fashion Week next to none other than Vogue Editor-In-Chief, Anna Wintour. Jenner was also featured in an interview and photo shoot on Vogue.com.
In an interview with “V” magazine last year Jenner revealed she wanted to be taken seriously as a fashion model, despite her reality star status.
“I don’t think some people take me very seriously,” she revealed. “When I started off, I was way more of a personality in modelling and it wasn’t like, what I wanted to be exactly.”
“I want to be more high fashion; I want to be more editorial, but hopefully I’ll just prove myself.”
