Kendall Jenner is now the artist formerly known as Kendall Jenner. According to the official site of her modeling agency, The Society, the budding model dropped her famous last name and will just be known as Kendall. As she told Love magazine in July, she thinks her family’s name is working against her where her career is concerned. “People think that this [success] just came to me,” she said. “But it didn’t. What I have almost worked against me…I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. But it’s great when people didn’t recognize me.”
They might not know who she is in a casting, but you can bet that we’ll recognize her coming down any runway. As long as she’s got that K in the beginning of her name, we can’t say we’ll be willing to separate her completely from her roots. K?
