Kendall Jenner joined the ranks of Estee Lauder back in November, but the cosmetics company released her first official commercial for their Little Black Primer this morning on YouTube. The short black and white clip is already stirring things up on social media. The young model is receiving praise from fans, her mom, and the modeling industry for her debut.
Kris Jenner immediately went to her Twitter to express her joy and pride over the Estee Lauder release. She made it clear that she was happy to see her daughter’s work finally available for the world to see.

Estee Lauder announced back in November that Kendall Jenner was their newest model. Vogue Magazine shared Kendall’s comments about the new position.
“It honestly feels like a dream to represent such an iconic beauty brand — it is an incredible honor and quite humbling.”
At the age of 19, Kendall is already making a name for herself as a model. She raised eyebrows last year when she posed mostly topless in photos shared by Interview Magazine. Her mother, Kris, received criticism for allowing her daughter to pose like that.
Kendall Jenner has grown up in the public eye, and she has spoken out about how that influenced her life in a post shared by the Wall Street Journal last week.
“I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago. Having older siblings, you grow up around adults, so you mature more quickly. I saw my sisters and parents working every day, so I was pretty much brought up to be a workaholic. But I just turned 19 a couple weeks ago, and I’m scared to be 20—it’s the first step out of being a teenager. My sister Khloé always says to me and my younger sister, Kylie: You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid. And we get it. In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes—react to things as if I were 12. You can’t take things too seriously. I just laugh thinking about my dad being a teenager, partying. It’s the funniest thing. And it makes me think—what am I going to be like when I’m 65?”
Kendall has walked on model runways in fashion shows for Marc Jacobs and Chanel, but this is her first beauty campaign.
