It’s Official: Kendall Jenner Won the Internet in 2014

Well, this settles it: 2014 was officially the year of Kendall Jenner!

On Tuesday, Tumblr unveiled its annual zeitgeist report, offering a fascinating look into what has gripped the blogosphere throughout the past twelve months.  Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson and Beyonce were among the most searched celebrities, but as for the fashion world, it was model phenomenon Kendall Jenner who came out on top, earning the title of the ‘most reblogged’ model of 2014.

The title is hardly surprising given Kendall’s seemingly meteoric rise in the past year.  In addition to earning a contract with beauty behemoth Estee Lauder, Kendall has also increased her profile with covers for LOVE and Dazed magazine, campaigns for Givenchy and Karl Lagerfeld, and continued appearances on the world’s most sought-after runways.  And let’s face it, her social media numbers speak for themselves. So much so in fact, that the 19-year-old managed to out rank her good friend and last year’s reigning champCara Delevingne, who came in at number two.  As for the rest of the list, you’ll find supermodels Candice Swanepoel and Miranda Kerr in the third and fourth spots, while Kate Moss, Barbara Palvin, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Adriana Lima rounded out the top ten.

See below for the full list of the year’s ‘most reblogged’ models, and head over to Tumblr to find out how your other favorite celebrities, internet sensations and buzzed-about memes faired this year.

Kendall Jenner Performs a Sexy Striptease for Love Magazine’s Advent Calendar

Like eating far too many sugar cookies and getting a little carried away at your holiday party, the Love Magazine advent calendar is one thing we can rely on each Christmas. But forget about the sweet chocolate-filled advent calendars of your youth because as always, Love is counting down the days until Christmas with a daily short video starring our favorite models lip-synching, dancing, and yes, stripping down to their skivvies.

In the past, the glossy has had the likes of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cara Delevingne and Doutzen Kroes hiding behind their doors, and today it’s Kendall Jenner‘s turn to shake it in the name of old Khris Kringle. Here to end 2014 with a band, the short NSFW video sees the 19-year-old dancing to Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” in a black lace ensemble by Philipp Plein.  Like the models before her, Kendall performs a festive strip tease, whipping off her tartan skirt to reveal sexy suspenders much to the delight of a shirtless dancing Santa.  Though not as Christmas-as videos past, there’s no denying that Kendall looks beautiful strutting around in her skivvies. Whether or not it was enough to land her on Santa’s nice list though, only time will tell.  Judging by his smile in this video though, we’d say the odds are in her favor.

Watch the full clip below, and check Love‘s website each day this month for a new exclusive holiday-themed film featuring Cara and Cecil Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Suki Waterhouse and more!
