A Comprehensive Look At Kendall Jenner's Entire Modeling Career

Kendall Jenner’s meteoric rise through the modeling ranks has been well-documented—but a short walk down memory lane reveals some career highlights in particular that we’ve swiftly forgotten about.

Before the 18-year-old hit the runway for Marc Jacobs in her high-fashion debut, Jenner was posing for another Marc: T-shirt designer Marc Clark. And before she was strutting for Chanel and Givenchy, she did a shoot for Kmart.

    Long before she was actually recognizable to anyone outside the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Jenner posed (alongside little sister Kylie) in a tartan plaid blouse from Gomez’s Kmart line, Dream Out Loud.

    Forever 21

    Jenner landed her first official campaign starring in Forever 21’s “Twist” ads, which debuted in July 2011. The ads were so-named because of the Grease inspiration of the line.

    Sherri Hill

    Jenner’s first-ever runway appearance was during dress designer Sherri Hill’s S/S 12 show, which took place in New York in September 2011. Hill was one of Jenner’s first prominent supporters, and the designer sent her down the runway several subsequent times.

    The fashion photographer has pointed his lens at both Kendall and Kylie numerous times, including this one—a snapshot from the Jenner sisters’ first official posters, which were released in November 2012. Look how far she's come in less than two years!

    Heart Truth

    For the F/W 13 presentation of the Red Dress collection, Jenner took to the runway in the namesake garment. This was the last time the two Jenners would share a catwalk, at least so far.

    Marc Jacobs

    Leading up to New York Fashion Week’s F/W 14 shows, rumors had been swirling that Jenner might make some kind of debut on the runways—but no one was entirely prepared for Jenner to make quite the debut indeed. She hit the runway of Marc Jacobs’ show—the final and always one of the most coveted shows each season—in a completely sheer blouse, no bra.

    Jenner’s follow-up to her Jacobs debut was a bit more subdued—she hit the runway for U.K. designer Giles in a graphic-print dress less than a week after she walked in Jacobs’ show.

    After London, it was on to Paris: Jenner then walked in Riccardo Tisci’s F/W 14 show for Givenchy. It was only the start for the duo, who have worked together several times since.

    That same week, Jenner walked in Karl Lagerfeld’s F/W 14 show for Chanel.

    Givenchy Campaign

    Since her initial Forever 21 campaign in 2011, Jenner had not landed another one since—until June 2014, when she appeared in Tisci’s ads for the F/W 14 Givenchy collection. She also starred in a commercial for the line

    Chanel Couture

    Jenner took her modeling game to a whole new level with her appearance in Chanel’s show during Fall 2014 Couture Week.

    It might not be an official modeling gig, but being tapped a member of Olivier Rousteing’s “Balmain army” is close enough to count. She attended Vogue’s Foundation Gala as a member of the designer’s clan, towering over older sister Kim Kardashian.

    Love Magazine

    In what is perhaps the final coup in her large-scale takeover of the fashion world, Jenner recently landed the cover and a full inside spread in Katie Grand’s Love magazine, shot by Mario Sorrenti and once again clad in next to nothing.
