Kendall Jenner: Five tips for stepping out of sis Kim Kardashian's shadow


Image Credit: Steve Granitz/

Could the sky be the limit for Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian’s leggy younger sister? Fifteen-year-old Kendall, Bruce and Kris Kardashian Jenner’s oldest daughter, has made a few bold moves in the last few weeks. Whether sashaying down the red carpet, landing modeling campaigns, or arranging double dates with Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Kendall wants the world to know she’s a force to be reckoned with. We’d like to take a moment to give Kendall some advice for staying a head above the rest. See our tips on everything from dating to finances after the jump.

1.) Etiquette

Call it the Kate Middleton Effect: Fans these days want their celebutantes to behave like ladies. Always keep it dignified. That said, make sure to inject a little Pippa into you life occasionally. I hear there’s a wedding coming up in your family soon. Don’t be afraid to show off your sassy side.

2.) Style
You’ll be hard-pressed to adopt the signature style of your curvaceous sisters, so embrace your willowy figure. Statuesque style icons like Michelle Obama, Nicole Kidman, Blake Lively, and Rebecca Romijn provide a good template for staying on best-dressed lists. You can also learn from fellow tall girl Uma Thurman’s mistakes: Just say no to milkmaid chic.

3.) Dating
Justin Bieber recently Tweeted a date invitation to you for one of his buddies. (Lame.) Well, Kendall, we think if you want to be taken seriously, don’t go out with Justin Bieber’s buddy. Hold out for something better. Like Bieber himself. Also, avoid digicams and video cameras at all cost!

4.) Money
First off, beware of kredit kards. Beyond that, we encourage you to branch out and take the world by storm solo. Even though it’s — mostly — worked for your celebrity siblings to keep it in the family, you learned on this season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that having a sister (or mom) as a manager puts extra strain on all aspects of life. Spread your wings, little bird!

5.) Longevity
Never take yourself too seriously. As Cameron Diaz and Charlize Theron before you prove, it is possible to transition from modeling, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Take your time growing up. Maybe even take some time off for school (Emma Watson can give you some advice on that). A long career is a complex career, so don’t be afraid to mix it up (well, maybe don’t ever star in a movie called Repo: The Genetic Opera).

        She’s 6′.

      • Yig

        Great another slutty Kardassian sister….will she debut in a sex tape like her sisters? Will it be with a d-list rapper and will she allow him to pee on her like Kim did.

      • Jessica

        too bad she doesn’t have any stepsisters… try half sisters – they are blood.

    • Regina George

      She’s really tall!

    • NO!

      Duh! She’s wearing platforms.

      • Bob

        And so are her sisters.

      • Jessica

        ummm… platforms? try heels, smart one. there’s a difference.

  • bettyw

    • Miranda

      SO TRUE! :D :D :D

  • Rolling Eyes

    Is she still a pole dancer? Seriously, is she still a pole dancer? When she was 11 she was dancing on her big sisters’ stripper pole. In the house, in front of her parents, on camera. Eleven.. . . . And you think she’s gonna follow in Emma Watson’s footsteps? Ha!

    • IAmMe

      It was her mothers stripper pole (great role model), and her big brothers best friend filmed it (creapy), and her parents found it later.

  • Pete

    When will we be free of the Khardhasian/Jenner celebrity non-talent?

    • John

      As soon as the media stops giving them the time of day and loutish Americans turn off their insipid TV shows.

    • abadstroller

      The K/J pimp-fest is like the bad accident on the freeway you’re driving past: You try not to look, but dang it, you catch a glimpse anyway and, try as you may, you can’t get it out of your mind. I don’t even understand the appeal of these…humans…and still I’m here. (I hate myself….)

    • Elizabeth

      Here here!

      Paris Hilton eventually went away, we can only cross our fingers and hope, I suppose.

    • Julie

      Sorry, Pete, the answer is “never”

  • Pete

    Please do.

  • Dave

    The best tip anyone can give her is to avoid making a sex tape like her big sis.

  • Peggy

    She’s much prettier than her sisters, but that’s the best I can say about someone from that family.

  • tomm

    Tell your Daddy to cut his damned hair! He clings to his 1976 do, and make him look stupid.

    • Clete

      After constant coverage of them, I kind of wish Daddy, years ago, had had something else cut.

      • abadstroller


      • RyRyNYC

        Extremely Clever!

  • CrackedBlackPepper

    She looks like Katherine McPhee to me. No?

    • hello

      Yes, she does.

  • Ms. Chanandler Bong

    I don’t if its her or the other sister, but one of them has really bad skin. and they pile on the makeup—poor thing.

    • Ms. Chanandler Bong


  • Mims

    She’s better looking than her 3 big sisters put together.

  • diana

    kendall is pretty and has model potential! I see her doing something in the modeling world! Kim is an ameteur model she is just a personality. Kendall can actually do more like runway(as shown in a kardashian episode). Kendall can have a career outside of her sister Kim’s shadow. Because Kim is NOT A MODEL or whatever. SO in my opinon KEndall can do so much more than what her stepsister do.. or more like have an actual career or reason to even be famous after her sisters limelight stops

    • TRIM

      Stepsisters?? Half Sisters! ALL HAVE SAME MOTHER!!!

    • Jessica

      like i told somebody else who lacks brains… half-sisters. NOT step.
