Kendall on Yesterday’s Last-Name Buzz: “I Can’t Believe It’s Actually Becoming a Story”

-------

DuJour Magazine's Jason Binn Celebrates Kendall And Kylie Jenner's Bruce Weber Shoot  Presented By Juice Press at Lavo RestaurantWhen 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. (It’s worth noting that their sister Kim Kardashian was shot by Weber for the magazine’s Spring ’13 cover.) “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.”

News Flash: Kendall Jenner Has Always Been Just Kendall

Kendall

Today, the Internet exploded following editors’ receipt of the modeling agencies’ Spring ’15 show packages. Why, you might wonder? Because reality-TV-star-turned-high-fashion model Kendall Jenner appeared on her card listed only as Kendall—that is, sans her last name, à la Iman, Gisele, or Twiggy. Twitter instantly began buzzing about the surname drop—is Kendall trying to separate herself from the Kardashian/Jenner clan? We checked in with Society Management, who has represented Kendall since the Fall ’14 season, when she made her debut walking in Marc Jacobs and Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy, and a representative told us the whole ordeal was much ado about nothing. In fact, according to her agency, Kendall has been listed with her first name only since Day One.

Considering that Kim and Kanye’s Tisci connection has unquestionably helped boost Kendall’s visibility, it seems unwise that she’d blatantly, and publically, distance herself from her reality-TV kin. However, Society’s assertion still leaves one question: Does Kendall, who’s been around for all of one season, have enough cred to go by a single moniker? Only time will tell, but we have to say, she’s well on her way to proving herself after her runway romps (she walked in Chanel Couture this summer) and appearing in the Fall Givenchy campaign, as well as on the covers of Teen Vogue and Love. Keep it up, young lady.

Looking to soak up the last few rays of summer sun (fashion month is only a few weeks away), models swapped their stilettos for sandals as they flocked to sand and sea to unwind—and luckily for us, they Instagrammed every moment along the way.

Anja Rubik chilled out #onaboat, inspiring a case of serious desk-side envy. Check out 10 of our favorite models’ vacation snapshots from the week, below.

Kate Moss Plays Director for British Vogue

-------


We’re used to seeing Kate Moss in front of the camera. Just in the past few weeks, the supe starred in the new Stella McCartney ad campaign and verified that her career is stronger than ever—this year was her most lucrative to date. (She’s reportedly worth $92 million.) Seeing her on the other side of the lens, however, isn’t something that happens quite so often. For British Vogue‘s September issue, Moss took her first stab at filmmaking with The Wolf in Her, a short film that captures Lara Stone frolicking in the woods for a Mario Sorrenti shoot. Shot on a Super 8 camera, the film has a fuzzy, ethereal quality to it, enriched by background music from her husband Jamie Hince’s band, The Kills. A few wolves also made it into the video, which makes us question the fear factor on set. We’d like to think Moss kept her cool, as always. Watch the film, here.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel wrapped up a 1 a.m. photo shoot and celebrated in the best way we could think of: with a slice of pizza. Here’s how 10 top models satisfy their cravings.
