Move over Kim, Kourt, Khloe & Kendall…. Make way for Miss Kylie Jenner!
The youngest sister of the Kardashian clan arrived at LAX on Saturday to travel over to New York City for fashion week looking, well, edgier than usual (fashionably speaking).
Unlike her sisters, it seems the 14 year old with the 5ft, 9 inch frame decided to ditch the heels and glam wear for a more comfy, more casual look, as she stepped out in scruffy lace up military style boots this weekend.
She teamed the on-trend boots with cosy looking knitwear, although couldn’t resist injecting some style with a pair of black edgy slashed leggings and a luxury black Hermes handbag. Kylie undoubtedly looked much more like a ‘normal’ teenager rather than a rich celebrity one (minus the luxury leather bag with a hefty price tag!) Though the arm candy worth thousands is understandable, she is after all headed for Manhattan on a very grown up gig, to make a catwalk appearance for Avril Lavigne’s Abbey Dawn line – and that’s where the sparks start to fly.
After already modelling for prom dress favourite Sherri Hill, alongside older sister Kendall and appearing in Teen Vogue and OK! Kylie is now set to make her catwalk debut in one of the world’s largest fashion events – New York Fashion Week.
However, the Kardashian creater Kris is now under fire for allowing her daughter of only 14 to undertake such a major role at such a tender age. Many in the industry believe 14 is far to young to debut and only recently have the Council of Fashion Designers of America issued new guidelines that recommend models to be checked for ID to ensure they are atleast 16 years of age before walking the runway.
It should be said though, that her first appearance was carefully executed & closely monitored by both her mother Kris and brother Brody Jenner, who setup the gig with former girlfriend, Pop-punk singer Avril Lavigne.
And boy did she deliver! Continuing her path to modeling domination, Kylie Jenner appeared on the runway on Monday evening (12th September) with confidence as she a worked a number of pieces from Avril’s Abbey Dawn Collection. Of course in true Kardashian style the sisters were out in force, as both Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, alongside Kendall & Brody Jenner and Kim’s new husband Kris Humphries took their front row seats in support of Kylie.
Although she hasn’t had as much exposure to the world of modeling as her slightly older sister Kendall Jenner and although not everyone is a fan of her modeling at a young age, she certainly has a great deal of potential & you have to admire her confidence and professionalism, after all she is only 14!
