Kendall Jenner & Cara Delevingne model for Chanel: are they making it work?


Did you know that Cara Delevigne and Kendall Jenner are BFFs this month? It’s true. Cara has been cozying up the Kardashian-Jenner clan more and more this year. Cara did a photoshoot with Kim Kardashian, and now Cara has a new shoot with Kendall for Love Magazine. Kendall and Cara are close in age – Kendall in 19, Cara is 22 – and they are both models, to varying degrees of success. Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound so bitter! It’s just that I still don’t understand how Cara gets all of these huge modeling contracts because… I don’t know, I don’t think she has a very upmarket look. Kendall is a pretty girl and she’s getting work, but I doubt she’s going to be the next Linda Evangelista. Or the next Karlie Kloss.

Anyway, after the British Fashion Awards on Monday night, Cara and Kendall jetted off the Salzberg, Austria to model in the Chanel Metiers d’Art Collection 2014/15 Paris-Salzburg runway show. I’m including photos of Cara and Kendall on the runway. Um… I realize that Karl Lagerfeld has lost his damn mind, and this isn’t the first time he hand-picked Cara to walk the runway for a Chanel show, but OMG. Cara looks like she pulled an all-nighter (I’m sure she did, remember the BFAs were the night before) and Kendall just looks… I don’t know, like she’s not a Chanel model.

Also: I’m kind of wondering if Cara and Kendall are going to become a couple. Cara was recently attached to Jack O’Connell, but I think that’s over or not exclusive. Cara is openly bisexual and she’s had high-profile relationships with men and women. Maybe Kendall is next? Or maybe Kendall has her heart set on locking down that Harry Styles thing.

    Yeah what in the name of all that is good and holy is going on up in here????

    • Milena says:

      My thoughts exactly. WTF.

      • Learned One says:

        I rarely throw shade online (though I will mutter out loud to myself) – but – those brows – Cara looks like a Dr. Seuss character. She’s a pretty girl…..and needs to lighten up on the brow filler. Brooke Shields did it much better many moons ago.

    • Easi says:

      Kendall has dead eyes. I like Cara but she looks like crap. She looks skinny fat. Coke bloat. There’s a Lilo vibe I’m getting. Sad.

      • joy says:

        I’ve never understood skinny girls with puffy faces. And it’s not always that way. I’m always chunky so I get it in my face. Ugh Kay off the coke.

      • FLORC says:

        I knew this girl with an amazing body, but when clothed she looked like she could be 15 pounds heavier judging from her face. Some people just have baby fat faces.

        With Cara though it’s coke. I would imagine a water pill addiction as well. Going off those will cause bloat.

        And neither look good here,

      • Misprounced Name Dropper says:

        Why does Cara feel the need to contort her face all the time? She reminds me of Jim Carey.

    • Tristan says:

      The outfits are a real disaster. Lagerfeld must be having the time of his life, making mischief in his old age & getting away with it. Cara Delevingne, despite her flaws, has personality with a capital P, and is very individual & interesting looking. Models like Karli Kloss are BORING & run of the mill. Cara is a zillion times more interesting for high fashion, than a bore like KK who is the fashion equivalent of superbore bff, Taylor Swift

  2. Santia says:

    Oh my God … hideous is the only thing I can think of to describe these dresses. Lil Bo Peep? What the heck is that???

    And it makes my butt itch that Kendall Jenner is getting all these high profile gigs. For why??

    • QQ says:

      Cause you look at her face and then you go like when Arrested Development’s George Michael Bluth got that oatmeal of a girl whose name everyone kept forgetting and saying ” Her? Really? Her?”

      • Shijel says:

        Lol good strategy actually. People are so curious about Blandall’s high profile gigs that even negative buzz generates exposure and sales. Let her enjoy it while the Kardashians are relevant, I guess. I’m just sad that some truly extraordinary faces with equal work ethic but none of Kardashian-jenners’ money is being overlooked by someone so…. so…. neighbourly.

      • QQ says:



        This is so Absolutely Gloriously High Shady but Classy!! I’M NEVER GONNA STOP CACKLING, BE PART OF MY SQUAD

      • Pixelated says:

        YES all the points to QQ and Shijel.

        To anyone who’s interested in the alien that is Karl, I recommend the recent YSL/Karl bio ‘The Beautiful Fall.” It dives deep into the inner weirdness/workings that was YSL and is Karl.

    • Sugar1 says:

      haha just came on here to say lil Bo peep looks like she’s lost her sheep because she was on an all nighter.
      Sometimes she looks pretty other times she looks like say if leann rimes had a sister Cara would be the prettier one.

    • cheryl says:

      I thought these photos were from a bad xmas variety show (like from the 70′s) and these were the costumes chosen for a ridic dance/comedy sketch.

      Not joking.

      Or are they? I should finish reading the article!

      • Tessy says:

        That’s exactly it. My first thought was really bad costumes for some kind of a dumb play. Is THAT supposed to be fashion???

    • Bridget says:

      Kendall Jenner gets these high profile job because she’s a serviceable model, but has such a large media presence that she essentially comes with free advertising. Brands put her in their campaigns and shows and it’s not just covered by fashion media but also mainstream media and gossip blogs, exposing the advertising to exponentially more people than the ad would have had they hired a regular model, no matter how spectacular a job she may have done. Further, Kendall herself has a strong social media presence, so her work is Instagrammed and Tweeted to millions of followers directly – and to an audience that high fashion may not necessarily directly court, but who will view the clothes and items as aspirational.

      • floridaseaturtle says:

        Wow, brilliant, and 100% correct. I hadn’t connected the dots in that manner until now. I am “gently middle-age” now, and was an adult when internet first began to appear in our homes. I was just telling my daughter last night that when I was her age, I used to cut out pages of magazines and keep them in a 3 inch binder with subject dividers for fashion, food & diy. Now, I can obsess on Pinterest, and other sites, and basically visit anywhere on the planet. How you described the basics of Marketing 101 in relation to her (and her family’s) overexposure was so on target.

    • Ag says:

      i don’t even know what to say about those dresses… on top of being hilariously and offensively hideous, they look like they would really itch to wear because they’re made of some cheap-a$$ polyester. bravo, everyone involved! i hope they cost 10K a pop.

    • Mia V. says:

      Coco Chanel must be dying all over again.

  3. Hotpockets says:

    Cara looks rough in these photos, but she always does outside of her editorials

    • Kitten says:

      I feel bad (but not that bad) but I guffawed when I saw these photos. Gerald Sampson!

    • Charlie says:

      Cara does look amazing in photos, and she look more upamarket than Kendall. But neither one of them is Karlie Kloss or Coco Rocha.

      How tall are they?

  4. sally says:

    Chanel Models are the same as any other model. Honestly, they’re all interchangeable.

  5. Jaderu says:

    Looks like a bad Monty Python sketch. Which would be a good Monty Python sketch.

  6. LadyMTL says:

    I’m not a huge fan, but Cara does have a very interesting look, almost androgynous. Plus she photographs really well, so I’m sure that doesn’t hurt, lol. As for Kendall Jenner, she’s pretty but I think Cara definitely has a more editorial vibe.

    • Kitten says:

      “Plus she photographs really well”

      She does?

      • Charlie says:

        She does. Her proffesional photos are stunning.

      • bns says:

        Yep. She’s a lot better in print than she is on runway.

      • LadyMTL says:

        Honestly, she does, lol. It’s amazing what great makeup and lighting can do for a girl. (Says me, who has neither).

      • Grant says:

        She sure didn’t photograph well here. At all. She looks like the Penguin from Batman Returns.

      • Hotpockets says:

        I think there is clarification needed in her photographing well, she looks great in ads, editorial photos and such, but in candid photos? No. She’s like Lindsay Lohan, in person they look rough, but in retouched photos, their features are pretty and interesting and make a striking photo, both have the chin bloat in real life.

      • FLORC says:

        He portfolio is great. She’s a young Margot hemmingway.

  7. GiGi says:

    Hahaha! Those dresses make them look like they’re the guest performers in a low rent rendition of the Nutcracker.

  8. Sarah says:

    Good Lord. Icky Karl hasn’t lost his damn mind by hiring these girls. He’s lost his damn mind by the Little Bo Peep/Hello Dolly “coiture” that he thinks is fashion. WTH?

  9. Gina says:

    Cara is looking rough these days. She’s better known for who she happens to be partying with that week than anything else. And Miss Kendall, the daughter of an Olympian and the half sister of big butt. Her name is rarely mentioned without mentioning her family….I think her career will be short lived. Butt…I have to admit she seems “cleaner” than her siblings and if fate be on her side, she may succeed on her own despite of the others.

  10. Talie says:

    Karl gets how this game works — he gets new media. So, of course, he was going to attach himself to the big social stars of the moment. He wants maximum publicity.

  11. Loopy says:

    Cara gets all this work because she has connections, i think her family is part of some aristo circle AND The Daily Fail did an obvious over the top campaign on her when she was relatively unknown ,they literally made fetch happen with her.

  12. BooBooLaRue says:

    Honestly, the pair of them are so boring.

  13. Estella says:

    That blue outfit on Cara is perfect for this year’s holiday parties. Come by car and leave in the funny farm wagon (your family called them to pick you up, of course).

    Cara needs to stop partying so hard. She is one wrecked 22 year old. I am 39 with less wattleneck.

  14. Juliette says:

    Both look like spoiled little rich girls out of the 18th century. Neither is particularly beautiful, and oddly – considering how immaturely they are dressed – neither looks particularly young.

  15. bns says:

    I really like Cara. She has grown on me a lot.

    • lirko says:

      It’s those faces she makes, right? So goofy! Definitely doesn’t seem to be taking herself to seriously. It is kind of endearing.

  16. Shijel says:

    They both look puffy and the dresses are a disaster. I’m not even going to talk about Cara, but Kendall as a Chanel girl? Lol. The only time I’ve liked her modelling was when she walked for Dolce & Gabban. She’s got the dark everygirl look D&G seems to favour.

  17. little_grrl_lost says:

    “It’s just that I still don’t understand how Cara gets all of these huge modeling contracts because… I don’t know, I don’t think she has a very upmarket look. Kendall is a pretty girl and she’s getting work, but I doubt she’s going to be the next Linda Evangelista. ”

    Both girls come from crazy family money. Not to say that they arent both beautiful but the commentary around jenner having basically bought her way into the industry should be just as equally leveled at delevigne. cara’s family is probably even wealthier than kendall’s.

    rich people tend to produce beautiful kids because they procreate with beautiful people. those kids become models who make WAY too much money. lather, rinse, repeat.

  18. BendyWindy says:

    Those dresses look like something Bellatrix Lestrange would pass over…

  19. Jackson says:

    L. OL. OLOLOL. At all of it.

  20. Amy Tennant says:

    I actually like Cara, but what is she doing with her face in those pictures? As for Kendall, she’s pretty but rather bland looking. (Could be worse). That was smart what someone said up there about her being free advertising.

  21. Nev says:

    Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Rhiley says:

    They look as though they should be saying, “Hello Danny. Will you come and play us? Will you, Danny. Come play with us, Danny.”

  23. serena says:

    Those dresses are really hideous!

  24. embee says:

    They look like they’re wearing old fashioned doll dresses that probably cost $10,000 each. Are they going to a tea party? Cara isn’t very pretty

  25. IndieChick says:

    Cara photographs really well but is looking so rough and so much older than 22 on this runway!!!

  26. Mischa Jane says:

    I think Cara and Kendall are cute together, they seem to like each other and have fun together.

  27. embee says:

    Cara looks rough and tough in those pictures. She looks like she’s burping and glaring. She might have been upset about what they had to wear. If I was being paid to wear something for a few minutes, I could fake a smile. I’ve always thought Kendall was pretty.

  28. JenniferJustice says:

    Cara always looks mad and mean – like she wants to hurt somebody.

  29. jammypants says:

    I think they look cute, but what do I know about fashion.

  30. vavavoom says:

    I think Cara is fabulous. Stunning. She is definitely a model, that face. And her attitude and personality make her interesting for this era. But she definitely looks ROUGH in these photos. Kendall is pretty and has a model body, but she’s running on her name recognition, even if she doesn’t think so.

    I’m not sure, though why Karlie Kloss was a comparison to an iconic supermodel? She is so plain .. her body is killer, but her face is so plain (compared to models, not ‘real’ people of course). She seems sweet, but she’s no Linda Evangelista, or Christy Turlington, Naomi. They are otherworldly.

    • TrixC says:

      Agree, Cara is a great model because she has such a unique look – she’s not especially beautiful but she has an arresting face, a bit like Linda Evangelista. I’m not convinced she’s a great catwalk model but it really comes across in still photos, I could look at her all day. Kendall is the exact opposite – prettier than Cara but has nothing that makes you want to look at her twice. Karlie Kloss is just tall, skinny and boring.

      • vavavoom says:

        Well said. I think Cara may be changing the catwalk a little. She does some silly (stupid?) things up there, but it’s refreshing and young.

  31. kri says:

    Put Ariana Grande to the left to the left of those two, and you’ve got three old-timey slithery Evil Dolls. My god, Karl. WTF!!?? Really, has he been eating Choupette’s catnip or what? Fail, just a total fail.

  32. M says:

    Haha- I’ve heard the similarities but Cara looks like evil baby from the Simpsons the most in these pics! That said, she looks amazing in her editorials. She is an example of a model who can look totally different from one pic to the next.

  33. ketjo says:

    I’m still waiting for Carol Burnett to walk out and join the duo in a green velvet drape dress with the curtain rod still in the shoulders……looks like something she would use on her show as a skit….I can see it now …and Carol would be the best dressed…….LOL

  34. DarkSparkle says:

    I want to say there was a blind item about this recently, but most of the guesses were Selena Gomez as the thirsty girl looking for press with Cara… Or Ireland Baldwin and Angel Haze.

    • vavavoom says:

      I read that! A blind item that there was going to be a ‘fake’ lesbian romance. And then photos of Selena and Cara on the yacht came out.

      Definitely wouldn’t put it past a Kardashian (Jenner, whatever) to fake that.

  35. jane16 says:

    I remember when models had to be beautiful. Now they just have to be related to someone famous or super rich. Weird world we’re living in these days.

  36. Lauren says:

    A model wrote Kendall an open letter that calls this deluded girl out on this notion that everything she has is due to only working hard. If anyone wants to read I have posted in down below.

  37. Pumpkin Pie says:

    No, they are not making it work. CD kind of is cat-walk model material, but I am 100% sure Kendall gets model gigs because of her family’s reputation and there is nothing that can convince me that is not true. And they both look ridiculous in those pics.

  38. Flower says:

    ‘are they making it work?’…….not even close

  39. YvetteW says:

    Are they making it work? No. They may couture look like costumes from a junior high school play.

  40. LAK says:

    I love that cara is so irreverent.

  41. snowflake says:

    wth are they wearing??!!

  42. Chem says:

    Gorgeous, perfect, amazing.

  43. Emily says:

    Cara has an angry baby face (Maggie’s rival from the Simpsons). With Kendall, I can’t help but see flashes of Lucifer’s homegirl when I look at her face. She is pretty but her relation to that woman ruins it for me.

    P.S. I loved when Cara and Kendall ran into Harry together. Threesome indeed.

  44. carasbrows says:

    They are what amounts to klickbait for Chanel. Both come from wealthy family that are infamous in their respected countries. Cara’s look is editorial she has the brows and bone structure- btw she is a smudge over 5’9″ . Looks weird enough for you to remember her but can be styled like a blank canvas. But this is proof that partying at 19 u can bounce right hack but 22 is the beginning of different story.

  45. leannel says:

    Kendull has the right proportions for a model but she’s awful. Dead in the eyes. Looking the part isn’t enough.

  46. vya says:

    Cara is the new Kate Moss, regular looking in life but in print it’s like Whoa!! Kendall, has a large following. Anyway, popularity wins. Nevertheless, I don’t understand how they’re making money from these two. Their followers are prepubescent girls. Anyone with money to buy “high fashion” shit do not fall into the same demographic as Cara and Kendall’s followers. Whatever they’re wearing looks like stuff from the op shop. Stuff you would buy and wear as a joke for the LOLs.

  47. toys are us says:

    Fantastic goods from you, man. I’ve bear in mind your stuff previous to
    and you’re just too wonderful. I actually like what you’ve
    obtained here, certainly like what you’re saying and the way by which you assert
    it. You make it enjoyable and you still take care of to keep it
    wise. I can not wait to learn much more from you. This is actually a tremendous website.
