Between her recent runway walk for Marc Jacobs at New York Fashion Week and being photographed by Vogue, it’s clear that Kendall Jenner’s modeling career is taking off — but is her elevated status in the industry hurting her relationships at home?
The 18-year-old model, who has been spending weeks at a time in New York to focus on her fashion career, is already dealing with the crushing accusations that her boyfriend, Harry Styles, is getting cozy with hipster wunderkind Sky Ferreira in her absence, and now it seems as though her ever-ascending celebrity status could be causing tensions with big sister Kim Kardashian.
Kendall posted a photo of herself sitting in the front row of the Topshop Unique fashion show to Instagram on Sunday, with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour sitting directly beside her.
While Kendall seems to be easily ingratiating herself with a host of fashion insiders, Kim’s ascent in the industry hasn’t been without its challenges, many of them stemming from Anna’s alleged ban on putting Kim in the pages of her iconic magazine. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, who, with the help of fiance Kanye West, has been trying to get land herself a Vogue shoot forever, can’t feel great about seeing Kendall get so chummy with Anna so quickly.
However, despite the tensions that may be brewing under the surface of the sisters’ relationship, Kim put on a brave face on Twitter, voicing her support for Kendall the day her Vogue shoot hit hit the internet.
“Proudest sister ever!!!!” wrote Kim. “@kendalljenner I love watching you live your dream!”
Do you think Kendall’s relationship with Anna could hurt her relationship with Kim?
