With short hair and fairly heavy makeup, Kendall Jenner looked unrecognizable during her recent walk on the Chanel runway. The renowned celebrity was the muse of Karl Lagerfeld at the Chanel couture show on Tuesday, and many audience members were barely able to recognize the 19-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.
As said in a report from USA Today, the young supermodel stole the show with her dramatically shorter ‘do and off-white pantsuit. And as often happens whenever models “fall into the hands” of this master of contemporary fashion, Kendall Jenner underwent a dramatic transformation, and the younger sister of Kim Kardashian continues to rank first among his favorite models.
In the case of his most recent event, Tuesday’s casino-themed fall 2015 Chanel Couture show inside the Grand Palais in Paris, Lagerfeld showed he can make the slim Jenner, who usually sports long hair, a stunning woman with short hair and a porcelain face. The big star of the evening was undoubtedly Kendall Jenner, who effortlessly pulled off the edgy hairstyle accompanied with a modern bridal look of a masculine cream suit with opulent decorative buttons.
The dramatic change in her hairstyle was the most shocking part of Kendall’s new look, and she was unrecognizable to many of those in attendance and looked very much like her mother, Kris Jenner, matron of the Kardashian clan.
At the end of the show, spectators saw the model “strut her stuff” in a white dress for the “wow” factor of the event. The two-piece ensemble offered a modern, yet mature, look. Kendall Jenner impressed in a button-down style blazer with shoulder pads, paired with tight pants and a veil that looked like a cape. It was definitely a mix that fascinated the audience on the catwalk.
Though Karl Lagerfeld had already planned an exquisite surprise for audience members, the show opened with a variety of celebrities, including Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore, Rita Ora, Jemima Kirke, Lara Stone, and Lily-Rose Depp. Although these celebrities are not thoroughbred models, even this performance had been a catwalk event of a special kind.
