Kendall Jenner has landed her very first fashion campaign with Givenchy.
The 18-year-old stars in a new advert for the fashion house’s Autumn/Winter 2014 campaign, posing along with other models including Jamie Couchert, Mariacarla Boscono and Peter Brant II.
Shot by photography duo Mert & Marcus, the reality TV star is virtually unrecognizable in the ads, where she sports slicked back hair, dark lipstick and barely-there eyebrows.

“She’s unique in wanting to turn her back on her celebrity when it comes to modelling,” said Katie Grant, who styled Kendall’s debut shoot for Vogue Paris. “It would have been easy for Kendall to go with a bigger agency and gone down a celebrity route but she wants to be taken seriously as a model just like the rest of them.”
It seems that the young Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is being taken seriously, as she made her Fashion Week debut when she walked for Marc Jacobs at New York Fashion Week in February.
Kim Kardashian’s half-sister then took to the runway for Givenchy at Paris Fashion Week, and was also chosen by Karl Lagerfeld to appear the Chanel show alongside fashionistas including Cara Delevingne. Kendall also sat front row with Anna Wintour at London Fashion Week.

Kendall has close ties with Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci, who is close friends with her new brother-in-law Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian. Although there was widespread speculation that Kim would wear a Valentino wedding dress, instead she opted for a stunning Givenchy Haute Couture gown.
