 “People didn’t want to take a chance on me, I think because I was sort of known. They were a little bit on the fence about it. Some people might think that what I’ve done before made it easier for me to get jobs, but it was actually a disadvantage. I had to work even harder.”

“As a kid,” she says, “I always looked up to supermodels, thinking about how amazing they are. I always wanted to be in photos. It was mostly little things, but they were fun. I wanted to get started, but I was young, and I wanted to do young things. I had to grow into myself. I couldn’t really go out there as a 15-year-old. I mean, I know that some girls do, but I couldn’t. I’d grown up in the spotlight, and I needed to be a kid for a minute.”

“I was like, ‘All right, I’m going to start taking this seriously.'” She switched agencies and began plotting a strategy that involved being very selective about potential gigs. “I felt like I should pick specific designers that I wanted to go for so I could make a good first impression—or more like a fifth impression,” Kendall says, laughing. “But it’s my first impression on this world.”
