She’s here to stay, so we had better get used to it. Social media sensation Kendall Jenner has surfaced for a full-page spread inside Vogue‘s December 2014 issue. The newest addition to the Estée Lauder roster posed up a storm for Patrick Demarchelier, with Tabitha Simmons on styling duties in a classic and timeless set of portraits. Photographed in true Demarchelier style against a gray studio backdrop, Kendall worked the legendary Frenchman’s lens showcasing pieces from Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana, Prada and Balmain. This isn’t the 19-year-old’s first shoot for Vogue magazine, having previously been shot for a story inside the June/July 2014 issue of Vogue Paris, also by Demarchelier. Not to mention appearances inside W‘s March issue and on the cover of LOVE this season. Fashion’s love affair with Kendall is only just beginning!
Members of our forums were quick to deliberate the newly released photos. “I know everyone is all up-in-arms about the feature with Kendall, but it’s just gone live on the magazine’s website, and I have to say, Patrick Demarchelier made her look infinitely better than Amy [Adams]. I wouldn’t have minded seeing her on the cover if I’m all too honest,” wrote ohmycolin.
“She looks gorgeous and that is something undeniable, BUT she hasn’t done something yet that makes her cover material. There are far more deserving stars than Kendall. Maybe someday but not anytime soon. Meryl only got her first cover in 2010/2011 (?) and she’s Meryl Streep already. Amy, after many fantastic films, only got hers now… so maybe Kendall can wait for a longer while. And she, at the moment, is nowhere near the market of Vogue,” replied an uncertain MON.
Quick to add her own two cents was kokobombon: “I agree Kendall looks great, not sure if it’s US Vogue cover worthy but some closeups could make excellent covers for other publications imo. This might be one of the very few times that I like her as a model, at least she´s doing something with her face.”
Marc10 clearly wasn’t a fan of the appearance and posted, “What a waste of 10+ pages.”
“I am actually a little shocked, I thought she was a semi-respectable model, but here she looks like a high school kid posing for senior portraits,” added HeatherAnne.
