She’s dropped her last name and is going by “Kendall” only as she tries to book more modeling jobs!
It’s actually not unusual for a lot of models to only go by their first names, but Kendall’s reasoning behind the decision is so that people will be less likely to associate her with her famous family!
Kim Kardashian explained:
├óΓé¼┼ôShe went and auditioned, and she just goes by the name of Kendall, [so] that people won├óΓé¼Γäót just think that she gets any handoffs.├óΓé¼┬¥
Er, we think she means handouts not “handoffs.” Anyway!
Kim went on to tout her sister’s work ethic, saying:
├óΓé¼┼ôShe works her butt off. She just goes to casting after casting. I├óΓé¼Γäóm so proud of her that [in] her first Fashion Week, she [was] able to achieve all the shows she was able to walk in. She├óΓé¼Γäós living her dream and it├óΓé¼Γäós so inspiring to watch her.├óΓé¼┬¥
Keep it up, Kendall, we have a feeling you’ll go far!
After all, the 18-year-old already walked three MAJOR shows during fashion week!
