“When we are casting Marc Jacobs I always try and throw in a couple of unexpected models,” [Katie] Grand explained. “Last season it was Sky [Ferreira] so when Kendall Jenner’s agent, Christopher Michael, called me and asked me to meet Kendall, I was intrigued.”
And for those who might think she was a bit of stunt casting, not so — Grand says that she was impressed by Jenner’s dedication to the gig. “The second time [we met], we got chatting and I was surprised how intent she was about modeling — just like all the other girls,” Grand says. “She’s a very cute girl, extremely pretty with big doe eyes and a very charming way about her.”
So Grand brought Jenner back for a third time, where she met Jacobs and tried on the now-infamous sheer V-neck, which Grand said was American Hustle-inspired. “My first question to her was could we bleach her eyebrows. ‘Yes,’ she said, ‘You can do anything.’ And then later I asked about the sheer top and she was also fine with that.”

Kendall Jenner Walks In Marc Jacobs
Kendall Jenner walking the Marc Jacobs show earlier tonight. Huge deal here. Especially after her appearance in W magazine earlier this week, in Pillow Tweets. Signs signal to her time to play in high fashion, and Marc just gave her a huge kick forward. Oh yes and she's showing her nipples, signaling her own freedom and open mindedness. Question we won't have till about 5 or 6 months from now: will she land the campaign? If Miley was an indication, and Marc's remarks to W magazine are anything:
Michael Kors, he has always been a great designer—he’s been a pillar of American fashion for years and years; his sensibility hasn’t changed. But he was on Project Runway! He became a household name because of that. Well, I’m not going to be on Project Runway. I’d do other things—and believe me, I’d do things that people would question—but Project Runway won’t be one of them. I don’t want to follow in someone else’s footsteps. I want the results—I just want them our way.”
"I want the results". So Marc wants to go main stream, and Miley, and possibly Kendall could be calculated moves on his part.
By the way, his poetic song repeating during the show, was: Happy Days Are Here Again.
Back to Kendall, she spoke to Into The Gloss backstage:
"I just recently turned 18, so this [Marc Jacobs show] is my big kick-off to start and grow my career. The New York fashion scene is crazy, madness, but I love the energy. I love everything about it—like the hair and makeup today, it’s incredible. I’ve never had my eyebrows bleached; I don’t even look like myself!
