Nobody Does Risqué Red Carpet Quite Like Kendall Jenner
The queen of setting the red carpet on fire
Keeping my Scorpio biases aside – Kendall Jenner is still the most stylish amongst the Kardashian-Jenner clan. The 26-year-old model’s understated sartorial sense is probably a case study in a fashion school somewhere, but today, let’s talk about her risk-taking red carpet looks. She likes her slits high and necklines low—we just can’t get enough of her endless legs and that torso! Even before she became a runway star, Kendall has been gracing the red carpet with her equally famous family. On her birthday today, here’s celebrating her red carpet evolution.
1. Music Video Awards 2014
For some, one slit may be enough but not for Kendall. The reality star stunned the crowd at the MuchMusic Video Awards by showing up in a floor-length Fausto Puglisi gown with dual thigh-high slits.
2. Met Gala 2015
For her second time at the Met Gala, Kendall opted for a custom Calvin Klein, stone-encrusted gown with lace-up side-boob detail.
3. Met Gala 2016
Kendall likes to keep the efforts and the fabric at the bare minimum when it comes to her red carpet style. In 2016, the cover star walked the Met step in a mesh Stella McCartney gown with hollow side cutouts.
4. Canned 2016
Kendall amped up the drama quotient at her Cannes red carpet look in 2016 by dolling up in a sheer, abstract patterned Roberto Cavalli gown.
5. Chopard Party 2016
Even when she’s not in a floor-length gown, she knows how to make the heads turn. Kendall attended a black-tie event in a semi-sheer embellished Elie Saab mini number and layered it with a matching feather-detailed floor-length jacket.
6. Cannes 2018
Free the nipple—Kendall understood the assignment. At the Girl of the Sun premiere, she shut the red carpet down in a naked Schiaparelli, ruffle-detailed gown.
7. Chopard Party 2018
You know how we often talk about skipping the bra? Well, Kendall actually does it, right? For the 2018 Chopard Party, the highest-paid model strutted in a sheer golden rhinestone embellished short dress by Alexandre Vauthier.
8. Vanity Fair Oscar Party
Kendall means business and makes it evident—she shows up looking like a diva in a barely-there Rami Khadi gown. The crotch-taped silhouette made a lot of headlines that night.
9. Met Gala 2018
Kendall doesn’t believe in ball-gowns and voluminous ensembles – the model dialled it up a notch in this La Perla couture for the 2017 Met Gala. The outfit exposed her rear posterior with a giant centre-front slash.
10. Met Gala 2021
Giving the classic Audrey Hepburn outfit a modern upgrade – Kendall was one of the best-dressed celebrities at the 2021 Met Gala in her sheer Givenchy nude gown.
