Marc Jacobs has slowly been releasing images from its new F/W 16 campaign, including Cara Delevingne's and Courtney Love's starring turns. Next up is Kendall Jenner's stunning portrayal of a "goth goddess," which was definitely worth the wait.
The model is virtually unrecognizable in an over-the-top wig, dramatic coat, and sky-high platform boots. In the Instagram post, Jacobs himself wrote a sweet note about Jenner, detailing the first time they met and how he was immediately impressed by her. "It goes without saying that Kendall has gone on to establish an incredible career for herself and every bit of it is a testament to her hard work, passion and desire," the designer wrote in the caption.

"KENDALL, Supermodel I will always remember the first time I met Kendall during castings for our Fall 2014 fashion show. Katie Grand invited her to come by the studio for a brief introduction before she was photographed for the model boards. At the time, I knew very little about Kendall… As history now has it, her very first fashion show was for Marc Jacobs Fall 2014. Kendall has since been a part of every show along with being featured in our Spring ’15 ad campaign (also shot by David Sims). It goes without saying that Kendall has gone on to establish an incredible career for herself and every bit of it is a testament to her hard work, passion and desire. During castings for Fall ’16, due to the enormous height of the boots we designed, we had to make certain that each girl was able to walk (and walk safely). Kendall slid those boots on and walked around the studio as if she was in a pair of running shoes: statuesque, confident and just as enthusiastic and excited to be doing the show as if it was her first one. For me, it is the ability of a model to effortlessly transform into a look and character that makes her so appealing and inspiring. Photographed by David Sims for our Fall ’16 ad as a Goth Goddess is the sweet, kind and ultimate professional, Kendall Jenner." -@themarcjacobs • Photographed by David Sims Styled by @kegrand Casting by @bitton Hair by @guidopalau Makeup by @diane.kendal Nails by @jinsoonchoi Set design by @stefanbeckman #MJFW16
