Michael Kors Weighs In on Kendall Jenner's Modeling Career: ''She's a Real Professional"
In case you haven't heard the latest news coming off the catwalk: Kendall Jenner is taking the modeling world by storm.
The 18-year-old stunner most recently rocked the runway at Paris Fashion Week, where she strutted her stuff alongside some of the industry's top models including Gisele Bündchen and Cara Delevingne, appearing in show's such as Chanel, Sonia Rykiel, Givenchy and Balmain.
Oh, and let's not forget about New York Fashion Week when Kendall walked in Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan and Tommy Hilfiger in addition to appearing in the runway shows for Dolce & Gabbana, Bottega Veneta, Pucci and Fendi in Milan.
So what does Michael Kors have to say about fashion's latest "It" girl? Count the designer among the famous faces in the industry who are singing the E! star's praises.
"I think she's a strong, powerful, great-looking girl. She's a real professional," Kors told E! News at his special dinner celebrating the launch of Claiborne Swanson Frank's new book Young Hollywood in Beverly Hills.
"I love that her card just says Kendall," the designer continued, referencing the fact that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star dropped her last name professionally. "So she's not trading on her name and I think she's going to have a great career."
As for whether Kors, who just wrapped up his own successful Paris Fashion Week, has any plans to work with Kendall in the future?
"I think the big thing about models is it's kind of like actresses—the right actress in the right part," he explained. "And when it's the right show, I think, 'Hey, that's fabulous.' The right show with the right girl—it's kind of magic."
In addition to dishing on Kendall's impressive career, Kors also shared some scoop on the latest fall fashion trends, and lucky for us all, this season is all about comfort.
"It's definitely flat shoes, flat shoes, flat shoes," he shared. "Even on the red carpet I think we're gonna start to see some flat shoes. And just an easiness in general, hands in the pockets, kind of a softness. And although it's hot as blazes here in L.A., pretty soon at night you're going to want to be putting on a cozy piece of knitwear so a great sweater coat or a great sweater jacket, big mufflers, lots of cozy knits this fall. I think they're kind of the first thing everyone is going to grab for."
