Everyone knows who Kendall Jenner is, whether you know her as Kim Kardashian's little sister or Cara Delevingne's new bestie. Her face is on every single fashion magazine, and you will see her walking down countless catwalks like a pro.
Her career in fashion began in 2009 when she signed with Wilhelmina Models. As many models she has been featured in Teen Vogue, Seventeen and similar magazines. Ever since she's started modelling for high-end brands like Givenchy or Chanel she's been criticised by the media for not 'earning' her career in modelling.
Modelling is one of those careers that are not considered 'normal', regular people don't really think of it as an option as it's not a matter of how hard you try but a matter of how photogenic you are or how good your genes are. Some models have had to work very hard to get where they are now and some others just have to make a few calls. Like Kendall.
We are all born in a family that we don't get to choose. You can't blame someone for belonging to a rich or powerful family, they didn't choose it. And neither did Kendall. She was born in a very famous and wealthy family and, in a way, she's always been famous. Because of that, landing a job in the modelling industry was easier than for regular people and she didn't have to work as hard or go through what so many other models have to. Is that her fault though? Is it her fault that her sister's husband is Kanye West who just happens to have some contacts in the fashion industry? Whether she got that Givenchy campaign thanks to Kanye or not I don't know. But what I do know is that Kendall is taking a lot of nasty comments for something she's not guilty of.
If anyone had the opportunity to succeed doing something they like they would take it, Kendall just happened to have it. If she didn't have the 'right' body or if she wasn't considered pretty or if she sucked at modelling I am quite sure she wouldn't be posing with all those top models and she definitely wouldn't be working with Chanel. Yes, her fame might have gotten her there but if she wasn't talented she would've been gone by now. I really think she does not deserve all the hate she is getting and that some people should remember that at the end of the day she is just a teenager.
