Kendall Nicole Jenner became more popular during the reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, that flair of family domestic life often chronicled as chaotic, worse than the Simpsons, featuring Kim Kardashian and sisters Kourtney, Khloe and of course, Kendell. Yes, the Kardashians and Jenners are half-siblings – Kylie, Casie and Burt Jenner (from the dad’s first wife), Brandon and Brody Jenner (from the dad’s second wife), and Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Rob Kardashian (through mom’s first husband). Whew!
Jenner was born on November 3, 1995 (yep, she’s just 19) in the City of Angels and stands 5 feet, 10 inches. She is the daughter of former Olympic decathlete Bruce Jenner and television personality Kris Jenner. Jenner is a prominent member of an emerging fashion movement which has been dubbed ‘Social Media Modelling’ by Harper’s Bazaar and ‘the Instagirl era’ by Vogue. After years of being featured in commercial modelling print ads and photoshoots, Jenner had breakout seasons in 2014, walking the runways for high fashion designers during the New York, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks. Jenner is known for posting celebrity selfies and career updates to her followers on social media.
Jenner got her start in modeling by signing with Wilhelmina Models at age 14 in 2009. By the end of 2012, Jenner has done shoots with magazines and runway modeling, and continues on ‘til this day. On November 15, 2014, Jenner announced through her social media accounts that she had been selected as the new global face of Estée Lauder. Within 3 days of the announcement, Estee Lauder’s Instagram account gained 50,000 new followers, increasing their fan base over 19% to 308,000 Instagrammers.
Just in time for spring, Estée Lauder teamed up with the colorful French clothing brand Courrèges for a makeup collection of bright blushes, metallic shadows and playful lashes. Jenner, the face of Lauder, stars in the fun campaign video.
