And You Thought You'd Made it Through NYFW Without Any Kardashian News ...
One of the ubiquitous "klan" sashayed down the runway so well disguised that (almost) no one noticed
In fact, the sets, the music and the clothes (loads of tunics-over-leggings and other minimalist looks), were such a sight to behold that few noticed one of the Kardashian/Jenner offspring making her NYFW debut.
Sure, the show's signature pinky/brown cropped wigs and bleached out eyebrows helped to keep the identity of most of the models a mystery (though, in truth, fashion's "big names" were notably absent), but given the paparazzi fanfare usually afforded Kendall Jenner, it was impressive that she managed to get by almost un-noticed.
"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," an exuberant Jenner said before hitting the catwalk. Braless. In a sheer top. (To be fair, all the other girls did too. And, of course, big sis Khloe has already gotten busy defending it.)

Was it nerve-wracking to have to strut her stuff for one of the most highly anticipated collections, in front of some of fashion's biggest names? Talking to The Gloss backstage, Jenner admitted that, "I'm a little nervous for the show, but I'm really excited. It's my first runway show, so I've been practicing. I feel like everybody has their own individual walk, and that's what makes someone so special. Maybe I'll run down the runway! [Laughs]"
Perhaps the best part of the night where her appearance was concerned? The fact that none of her spotlight-grabbing siblings felt compelled to come and steal her thunder.
