Why Is Kendall Jenner Missing Paris Fashion Week?
The model has been suspiciously absent from the European catwalks
We’ve finally arrived on the last stop on the endless sartorial tour that is fashion month. But while we’ve seen all of our favorite models storm the catwalks at the shows in Paris, from Gigi and Bella Hadid to Taylor Hill and even Rihanna, there’s still been one newly dubbed super and Vogue cover girl that’s been suspiciously absent from the runway ever since the Marc Jacobs show and those controversial technicolor dreads. Which has us asking — where in the world is Kendall Jenner?
It seems the 20-year-old has chosen to eschew London, Milan, and Paris’s shows in favor of spending some down time in the city that never sleeps. While she’s usually a staple in shows like Versace and Fendi, it looks like this season the fashion phenomenon has decided to do her own thing instead. She even missed walking in Balmain, where her sisters Kim and Kourtney and her mom Kris sat front row.
So what could be more important than being photographed walking the catwalk in all the latest in couture? Apparently, sporting the latest in ’90s revival trends and getting an inner lip tattoo from her ink artist of preference, Jon Boy.
The reality star turned model was spotted out walking around SoHo on Thursday after stopping in for a quick ink appointment at Jon Boy’s West 4th studio where she got the word “meow” tattooed on her inner lip. Post body mod appointment, Kendall looked like she could have just walked straight off the set of She’s All That, in an all-black ensemble consisting of oval shades, a turtleneck from ALYX that reads “zero,” boot-cut charcoal trousers and white Céline slip-ons.
Ditching Paris for some new body art? Certainly, no one can say Kendall doesn’t know how to maintain a good work-life balance. And we still wouldn’t be surprised if Kendall traveled across the pond for the Chanel show next Tuesday. Because nobody lets down Uncle Karl.
