Kylie Jenner’s First Runway Was For Avril Lavigne’s Lame Ass Clothing Line
One of the greatest tragedies of the modern era is that nobody seems to remember that on September 13, 2011, Kylie Jenner walked her first runway for Avril Lavigne’s forgotten clothing line, Abbey Dawn.
As you might expect, Abbey Dawn was very Avril Lavigne.
A little bit tacky, a little bit lame, and very embarrassing to like if you’ve already hit puberty.
At the time, Kylie Jenner was 14 years old, a fact which caused minor controversy in the fashion world, but more on that later, and her half-brother Brody was deeply in love with the Canadian lover of skater bois.
Obviously it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why Avril asked Kylie to walk in her show, but what is curious is that she didn’t ask Kendall to walk in the fashion show too.
Kendall would have to wait two more years to make her runway debut.
Meanwhile, Kylie would walk the runway two more times thanks to Avril.
Not that Kendall seemed bitter about it.
In fact, all the Kardashians who were present for Kylie’s runway debut looked like they were genuinely having the time of their lives and not at all like they were forced to sit through a tacky ass fashion presentation against their will, which is probably because in 2011 they were still universally hated and willing to do anything for some PR.
In a video of the show, Kimmy is gleefully singing along to all of the songs, Kendall and Kourtney are posing for selfies whenever Kylie’s not onstage, and even Kris Humphries, noted fuckboy, seems to be enjoying himself.
Although not everybody was so happy that Kylie was there.
Earlier that year the Council of Fashion Designers of America was “extremely upset that Kylie walked in the Abbey Dawn show” because they had apparently sent out letters to all the designers asking them not to use any model under the age of 16.
Whatever, Kylie looked like she was having fun as she walked down the runway in a union jack mini, striking a punk rock pose on the end of the runway like the teenage poser she was.
It doesn’t get much better than this, people.
