On Using Family Name
She indeed is doing something and not cashing on Kardashian/Jenner name! "I'm not trying to use a family name or anything," she said. It is not unknown that Kendall even dropped her last name to avoid being considered for her name.
Critics do not matter to the upcoming supermodel. Kendall said, "If you just ignore it and go on and you're like, ‘I know what's real.' My family, my friends, they know what's real. So what else, why does that matter?"
Campaigns, Ads and Brands Face
After her runway for Marc Jacobs in February this year, Kendall worked with many ace designers. Kendall who recently became the new face of Estee Lauder feels it is all happening after her big runway walk for Marc Jacobs.
Kendall shot to fame overnight after walking for Marc Jacobs at NYFW. She wore a sheer top showing off her bare bosom. Talking about it, Kendall said, "Who's going to argue with Marc Jacobs when he's putting you in an outfit, you know what I mean?" Jenner said. "It was an amazing moment. And I do not regret it."
On Justin Bieber
Kendall when asked on Bieber said, "Justin is a longtime friend of our family. Everybody loves to assume things, but no." She further added, "I'm not in a relationship. I'm truly focusing on my career. If it comes it comes."
On Why Kim Was Banned From Attending Her Show
Kendall said that Kim was not banned but was a mutual understanding as Kim's attendance would have hampered on her runway walk (thanks to Kim's immense popularity). "It was more of a mutual understanding," Jenner said. "I remember getting a phone call from Kim... ‘I just wanted to let you know, I just got an invite to the Marc show. I don't think it's a good idea that I go. Do you agree?' And I was like, ‘I completely agree' ... She obviously is who she is, and it would've almost taken the attention away from me."
Kendall always aspired to be a model. The fashion model of the season said, "I would just always be looking at these supermodels who were just so amazing to me. They were like superheroes. ... They were magical. ... I want to be some little girl's superhero. I want to be, I want to be the best role model I can be to a little girl or to a little boy or to anybody."
"Everybody knows I'm like a little more shy, especially when I was younger, I was super shy," she said. "When I was a kid, I was so homesick at all times. I would go to a friend's house and I would be 'all right, I'm going to have a sleepover, Dad.' He would be like, 'great.' I would call him at like 9 p.m., 'Dad, come pick me up please.'"
On Parents Split
It was not easy for the little daughter to see her parents split. "It sucked, but it's not-- I try to think of it as it's not the worst thing that could have happened," she said. "I still am so close with both my dad and my mom. Nothing has really changed, except for the fact that now my dad lives on a beach, which is awesome. That's not that bad... everybody's happy."
On “You’re Too Fat For Runway”
When Australian tabloid "Famous" put her photo and called her fat for the runway, Kendall did not like it. However, she is not bothered now. "I don't feel the need, you know what I mean? Let them do what they want to do. Let them sit behind a computer and write stupid things about a young girl and make her feel bad about herself."
