Reality star Kendall Jenner has been a fashion icon ever since Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ became all the rage on television. She has been a role model from a young age when she started featuring on teen magazine covers.
At 21 years, Kendall Jenner has come out of the shadows of her more popular sister Kim Kardashian to become a showstopper for one of the biggest luxury lingerie brands – La Perla. While the amazing Naomi Campbell shimmied down the runway for the brand to open the show, Jenner closed it in a shimmery-glittery see through golden gown at the New York Fashion Week 2017.
La Perla under the creative direction of Julia Haart is showcasing its collections at the prestigious fashion week for the second time. This time, it is an ode to the power of the woman. The statement by the Italian brand was that feminism and femininity can go hand in hand.
With Kendall Jenner’s fiercely black bob cut and the absolute lightness of the see-through floor-length ‘naked dress’ that she modeled in, she looked absolutely great in the outfit and carried it off with a grace.
It was almost a throwback to the Jean Louis gown worn by Marilyn Monroe, while she rendered, ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ for the then President of United States of America John F Kennedy. Except this one looked so much more comfortable. In fact, that was one of the things Kendall was quoted saying that the sheer embroidered dress was extremely comfortable. It is a perfect blend of the style and comfort.
