Kendall Jenner Opens Up on Facing Tons of Adversity in Fashion World

Kendall Jenner Opens Up on Facing Tons of Adversity in Fashion World

Kendall Jenner rocks a Calvin Klein sports bra for a feature in V magazine’s issue 95, which is out on newsstands on May 7!

Here’s what the 19-year-old supermodel had to share with the mag:

On the fashion world: “You have no idea how many doors closed on me and how many adults were either initially reluctant to take a chance working with me or who outright laughed at me behind my back. It was kind of hard because all I was doing was going on go-sees, trying my best to break into this business as a teenager. I am so grateful to Marc Jacobs, Riccardo Tisci, Karl Lagerfeld, and Katie Grand, who took a chance on me that first season and gave me an opportunity. My parents taught me that work ethic is one of the most important keys in life, and I believe it.”

On working with photographer Steven Klein for the first time: “He is such an intensely talented person but he is cool and actually quite hilarious to work with. We vibe very well. We have some sort of telepathic mojo. This shoot was particularly fun because he brought his three Great Danes. Everyone knows, but he has the most incredibly beautiful Great Danes. They’re huge and one of them even slightly bit my head, that’s how gigantic he was! My head’s okay though. All good! Any chance that I can work with animals, I’m in.”

On her Calvin Klein print campaign: “This will be my first billboard on Sunset, which I’m ecstatic about. It’s really humbling, and honestly, I am a pretty shy person, but being part of the Calvin campaign and seeing myself up there will be a dream come true. I might have to eat every night at the Chateau Marmont with that hanging over my shoulder. ‘Oh yeah, that little thing? I didn’t notice!’”
