Kendall Jenner Just Got The Goth Babe Makeover Taylor Swift Couldn’t Handle
Kendall Jenner is pretty much the opposite of goth, which makes her recent transformation for Marc Jacobs even more #omg #whoa #yasssssqueen.
This morning, Marc Jacobs unveiled the newest ad for his fall ’16 campaign which stars Kendall Jenner as the goth babe Anna Wintour only wishes she could have made Taylor Swift become.
Marc was so enamored by the transformation that he even took the time to write Kendall a lengthy love letter on Instagram not only calling her a supermodel, but also gushing, “ It goes without saying that Kendall has gone on to establish an incredible career for herself and every bit of it is a testament to her hard work, passion and desire.”
KENDALL, Supermodel I will always remember the first time I met Kendall during castings for our Fall 2014 fashion show. Katie Grand invited her to come by the studio for a brief introduction before she was photographed for the model boards. At the time, I knew very little about Kendall… As history now has it, her very first fashion show was for Marc Jacobs Fall 2014. Kendall has since been a part of every show along with being featured in our Spring ’15 ad campaign (also shot by David Sims). It goes without saying that Kendall has gone on to establish an incredible career for herself and every bit of it is a testament to her hard work, passion and desire. During castings for Fall ’16, due to the enormous height of the boots we designed, we had to make certain that each girl was able to walk (and walk safely). Kendall slid those boots on and walked around the studio as if she was in a pair of running shoes: statuesque, confident and just as enthusiastic and excited to be doing the show as if it was her first one. For me, it is the ability of a model to effortlessly transform into a look and character that makes her so appealing and inspiring.

To be fair, he wrote one for each and every one of his campaign stars, but that doesn’t make it any less of a nice gesture.
While this isn’t the first time Kendall has gone goth for fashion, it is the first time we’ve seen her edging up after Anna Wintour practically named her Taylor’s successor in the wake of T Swift’s decision to abandon her Hot Topic makeover last week.
Can’t wait to see which edgy direction Anna Wintour pushes Kendall into next.
