Style – When Kendall Jenner finally arrived at New York’s Lavo nightclub last night to celebrate her DuJour magazine spread, she had plenty to say regarding yesterday’s media buzz about dropping her famous last name.
“I can’t believe it’s actually becoming a story,” said Kendall, who turned out with her sister Kylie, who is also in the Bruce Weber-lensed DuJour editorial. “I did it last season as well. I’m not sure why it’s just becoming a thing. It’s not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be.”
(Side note: While she was clearing the air, she also wanted to clarify another rumor. Kendall and Kylie are both single ladies. “We are really not dating anyone, but supposedly I’m dating, like, 15 other people, according to the press,” she said. “It’s really crazy!”)
After making her debut for Fall 2014 and then walking at Couture, Kendall’s busy prepping for what is sure to be a busy next few weeks, with New York fashion week getting under way on Tuesday. What’s her beauty secret? “Ugh, sleep,” she reported. “You’ve got to get your sleep. I’m just keeping it cool,” she said with the confidence of a seasoned catwalker. Now that she’s no longer the rookie on the runway, we asked her for advice for models making their debut this season. How does one go from a freshman to a star model so quickly? “Believe in yourself,” she told Style.com. “I took risks and steps that most people wouldn’t have expected from me. Be unexpected and just do your thing.”
