Recently dubbed Hollywood’s New Brat Pack, Kendall Jenner and Justin Bieber head up the group that includes Gigi Hadid, Ansel Elgort, Dylan Penn, and Hopper Penn, as well.
The term “Brat Pack” was applied to a group of 80s teens (Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy) who appeared in a wide array of coming-of-age films, but it seems a new Brat Pack has emerged.
The latest incarnation features teen celebrities Kendall Jenner and Justin Bieber. The teens explored what being in the limelight means to them and how it affects their lives. While Kendall’s younger sister, Kylie, was noticeably omitted by Vogue for inclusion in this new Brat Pack, as noted by the Huffington Post, it seems her dog, Norm, was happily included in the photoshoot, alongside Kendall.
Bieber seemed unaffected by the popularity, answering the question by stating that a new forthcoming album keeps him too busy to let much of anything else influence his lifestyle.
Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, having found a new sense of friendship between them, were only too happy to explore what effect they have had on one another.
“Gigi and I? We first met at Nobu Malibu,” Ms. Jenner said. “I knew her younger sister [Bella Hadid] better back then, but — flash-forward a while — Gigi and I both ended up modeling in New York a lot, so we started to get together and, of course, clicked right away.”
Kendall admitted that, while they are all just starting out on what they hope will be long and prosperous careers, they have each felt the pains of fame. Ms. Jenner said that the worst downside to so much success is the attention they all get from the paparazzi.
“I like to think that I can just grab a pair of sunglasses and go anywhere — but subconsciously I’m aware when I’m at the gym that I need to save some energy so I can do a 40-heard dash, in sub-4.5 seconds, straight to the front seat of my car when I leave.”
Kendall’s BFF, Gigi, made headlines in January, when she bared her breasts in a new ad campaign for Guess Jeans. Gigi and Jenner have grown closer since that ad campaign and, much like this recent Vogue photoshoot, Kendall has often modeled alongside Ms. Hadid. Gigi and Ms. Jenner definitely compliment one another, as can be seen in the photo gallery.
