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.

The 10 Best Moments from Riccardo Tisci’s Ibiza Birthday Bash

-------

When we first heard that Riccardo Tisci would celebrate his 40th B-Day with a few (hundred) of his closest friends, in Ibiza, on a horse stud farm, we were fully prepared for an influx of “HBD @riccardotisci17″-captioned Instagrams. Every one of the Givenchy designer’s longtime nearest and dearest, like Mariacarla Boscono to his some of his new devotees like Kardashian/Jenner clan (Justin Bieber was also there. We’re still trying to figure this one out) quickly flooded our feeds with that may have been the most Instagrammed birthday party in history. In addition to a performance by Kanye West (surprise!), a Studio ’74 theme (get it? It’s the year Tisci was born.), and a four-tiered birthday cake (yes, fashion people eat birthday cake), Tisci was treated to a pair of 24-karat-gold Beats by Dre headphones, which were bestowed upon him by Naomi Campbell, before she and Kate Moss broke into “Happy Birthday.” Here, the 10 most memorable moments from Riccardo Tisci’s 40th birthday bash—plus, an exclusive bonus video of Tisci making a wish. #Ibiza74

BONUS: Make a wish, Riccardo!

EXCLUSIVE: Here’s Your Video Invite to Givenchy’s Fall Rave

-------


Riccardo Tisci hosted a private party in a London hotel suite and only a few people made the guest list, including models Mariacarlo Boscono, Julia Nobis, Jamie Bochert, and Kendall Jenner. (Oh, and never one to miss a party, Peter Brant Jr. made the cut as well.) Party dress code: Givenchy Fall 2014 only. Tisci enlisted photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to capture the models sporting his latest looks, including sheer, pleated skirts; softly printed dresses; and pussy-bow blouses. The resulting images make up the buzzy Givenchy Fall 2014 ad campaign. In case you weren’t invited to Tisci’s rave, we’ve got the video to watch right now. Here, the film makes its world premiere exclusively on Style.com.
