Kendall Jenner Will Front Karl Lagerfeld’s Next Campaign

It’s a good week to be Kendall Jenner.  The model of the moment just announced that she scored one of the industry’s most coveted beauty campaigns (a contract with Estée Lauder), and now she’s about to have an equally major fashion advert added to her resume!

As reported by WWD, the 19-year-old will star in the spring 2015 campaign for Karl Lagerfeld’s eponymous collection alongside fellow runway favorites Sasha Luss, Ming Xi and Baptiste Giabiconi.  With the press that comes with her name, it makes perfect sense why the designer would choose her for his next act. Kendall’s first major fashion campaign came earlier this year when she was cast in Riccardo Tisci’s fall 2014 campaign for Givenchy, and like Tisci, Lagerfeld took an immediate interest in the reality star’s burgeoning career.  The model has walked for Chanel three times in the past year and made her first appearance on the Fendi runway this past fashion week, so if you ask us, it’s pretty clear where she stands in Lagerfeld’s ever critical eyes.  And one only needs to look at Cara Delevingne to see what happens when you can count Karl Lagerfeld as a fan. So get ready fashion world, Kendall Jenner is coming for you!
