Yesterday Kendall Jenner‘s childhood dream of modelling for Victoria’s Secret became a reality, when she took to the runway as a “baby” angel alongside the experienced pros. The annual festivity, featuring performances by Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez (Rihanna pulled out pretty last minute), will be broadcasted on CBS on December 8 in the USA, so prepare yourself to cry into a tub of Ben & Jerry’s whilst we ogle the waiter-thin goddesses.
Kendall, overcome with emotion, made her angelic debut alongside BFF Gigi Hadid, and has posted on social media in the last 24 hours “dreams came true tonight”, followed by “sorry I’m just all emotional and excited about what happened yesterday. Last one for now. Would not have wanted to share this moment with anyone else but you baby G”.
Whilst she requested the absence of her Kardashian clan, she invited Mum and Dad Kris and Caitlyn Jenner along, who made a rare public outing together. “So incredible!! Beyond proud of you @kendalljenner #dreamsdocometrue #proudmama #vsfashionshow,” Kris wrote on Instagram. Kendall told the New York Daily News behind the scenes: “I told them all to stay away. It was too much pressure and I was like, ‘Mom and Dad are good enough’. I just need the pressure off. There’s enough pressure as it is.” Hardly surprising considering she has banned the girls from several of her haute couture Chanel shows previously!
Big sister Khloe Kardashian praised her debut on Twitter: “My baby sisters dreams came true yesterday!!!! @kendalljenner Every great dream starts with a dreamer and you my love are a dreamer amongst Angels!!!! Proud of you baby girl!” Proud Dad Caitlyn, who initially had an issue with this style of modelling at the beginning of her career, wrote: “Last night my little angel @KendallJenner fulfilled her dream as a little girl to walk in a @VictoriasSecret show!” Congrats Kendall!
