21-year-old Kendall Jenner to be honoured with fashion icon of the decade award
She has been modelling for six years out of the last decade
In a signal of what power today’s It-girl supermodels have (for better or worse, the OG ’90s ones would say), Kendall Jenner—a 21-year-old who only started walking runway shows in 2011—is being awarded the Fashion Icon of the Decade award during The Daily Front Row’s Fashion Media Awards on September 8th.
Well deserved? Too soon? Opinions are obviously mixed, though the fact Jenner has become one of the biggest faces of the fashion industry is indisputable. Last year alone, she was the third highest paid model, bringing a staggering $10 million, according to Forbes.
