Style Icon: Kendall Jenner

Latest trends, Style Icons

Kendall Jenner stormed the runways with a purpose this year. Renaming herself, simply Kendall, she was determined to be taken as a serious, high fashion model this year. Often quoted saying that being a Kardashian has been the opposite of beneficial for her modeling career, Kendall’s stellar success this season is proof that she is slowly making her way up to Karlie Kloss modern supermodel status. The VS Angel rumors are a good indication of a budding and promising career in the modeling world.

Kendall had a lot of memorable turns at the runway this Spring 2015, and even more than that, she has shown that she has the fashion chops to pull of the ever elusive and highly coveted model off duty street style. I give you the rundown of her top 5 runway appearances and her top 5 off-duty looks.

Marc Jacobs - Runway - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2015

Almost unrecognizable in a blunt bob wig, Kendall stomps down the Marc Jacobs runway in golden and glimmering sporty slides that continue to echo that shower sandals/chunky flatform trend.

Ports1961 - Runway - Milan Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2015

Radiant and resplendent on the Ports 1961 show at Milan Fashion Week, this sheer gossamer ensemble looks gorgeous on Kendall. This look is perfect for summers on the Italian riviera.

Balmain : Runway - Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2015

Of course Kendall had to walk down the Balmain runway. She’s best buds with Oliver Rousteing after all. Thin bands hold together this tough looking dress, with a definite rock n’ roll vibe.

You can’t call yourself a bona fide model if you can’t pull off a classic white T-shirt, and make it look glamourous. Major style points for you Kendall, your strappy heels and leather leggings are the perfect pieces to go with your casually cool white tee.

The best way to balance a sky high sexy side slit? With a boxy fur vest, of course.

Ladylike with a touch of mod, this is the right way to do a matching printed pantsuit while still looking young and chic.

Another model off duty style trademark? Wearing menswear-inspired footwear with almost everything. Kendall’s gold captoe monk strap brogues instantly upgrade her white trousers and slouchy tee outfit.

The sun shining on my face, light breeze jostling my hair, amazing scenery to take in and gaze upon, and a comfy yet chic ensemble to traipse around in. That is my definition of a perfect day.

The Marina Bay Sands Hotel is one of the most iconic landmarks in Singapore. You cannot visit Singapore and not glance upon its majesty against the clear blue sky.

The city skyline wouldn’t be complete without the awe-inspiring architecture and the modern magnificence of the Marina Bay Sands. Pay this landmark a visit, it is well worth it.

Make sure you put on your walking heels (just like me!), and get ready to take a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk and take in the sights. It is a great way to spend an afternoon.

Have a great week! Kisses!
